Books I Read: May

If you are new to the blog, I set a new years resolution/personal goal for myself to read at least 3 books a month. So far I have read 3 books in January, 4 books in February, 2 books in March, and 4 books in April. I really only missed reading 3 in March which is great but then May hit and I only read one book last month. One! We did go on two vacations with family so our weekends were pretty busy. Claire has been growing and experiencing the world around her and I didn't want to miss a second of her figuring out the world. With that being said I only got to read one book but it was a good one!
The Crown by Kiera Cass:
In The Heir, a new era dawned in the world of The Selection. Twenty years have passed since America Singer and Prince Maxon fell in love, and their daughter is the first princess to hold a Selection of her own.
Eadlyn didn’t think she would find a real partner among the Selection’s thirty-five suitors, let alone true love. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and now Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more difficult—and more important—than she ever expected.

Good: I love this series. If you love the Bachelor/Bachelorette you'll like reading these books. They are a quick read. I can read them in a day if I am really focused on reading and don't have any distractions. If you need a good book for the pool this is the one for you, read the other 4 in the series first though. I love who she ended up picking, it was kind of predictable but easily overlooked. The writing in this series isn't bad for a young adult novel either. I have definitely read some young adult books that I couldn't get through because of the writing but this one is different.

Not so good: It really isn't a stand alone book. In fact the entire selection series you have to read from book 1 through the end. Sometimes I like that, sometimes I don't. In this case since I had read the previous books I was fine with it but if I hadn't I would have been so confused the entire time.

Books I plan to read in June:
I am so excited for Summer. It means more reading time with camping trips, vacations, and reading outside while Claire plays in her play pen.  I have been really into the poldark series on Amazon prime. I discovered that the series is based off of books so I am wanting to read at least the first one this month.
I also love regency era romance novels and the library has a few that I haven't read yet so I am hoping to get my hands on one and read that.
Why not me by Mindy Kaling. I want to read this one for Bon's book club this month because it just looks so good and fun and I love Mindy!
What books are on your summer reading list?
