So May is officially over, and it hurts. I know most of you guys are happy because it’ll be summer there soon but for me June marks the resume of classes. *quietly sobs*
But we are not here for that sad news, WE ARE HERE TO LOOK BACK ON THE AWESOME MONTH OF MAY! Seriously May was an amazing bookish month for me because (1) I read a handful of books, (2) I started this blog, and (3) I discovered this wonderful community!
Okay now, let’s look back on all the book reviews and other bookish stuff that I posted last month.
I read a total of 12 books last May and I’m a little proud of myself but also a bit disappointed. I wish I could have squeezed a few more books. But anyways, I’m now at 63% in my Goodreads challenge with 13 books ahead of schedule.
Here are my May reads and book reviews:

Okay so Genie Reads will be celebrating its first month on a couple of days! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! I MADE IT, I SURVIVED MY FIRST MONTH! If you missed my first ever post (aka the most awkward post ever), just click here. One month later and I’m still pretty much clueless on what I’m doing, but you guys have been super awesome. I love interacting with you guys so much, I also discovered a lot of books because of this community. And I was notified a few days ago about getting 1000 likes. Why and how I managed to unlock this achievement is still a mystery for me but one thing’s for sure this wouldn’t be possible without you awesome bloggers! So thank you so so so much for liking and reading my posts! I’m so excited to spend more time with you guys, I’ll definitely be posting more stuff this June.
I’m planning to do some improvements on my blog this month and I might make a Twitter account purely dedicated to bookish stuff because I feel like I’m missing a lot of things there haha. So we’ll see what will happen.
So summer is over *silently cries*, and I’ll be returning to school this month. But I’m still pushing through my summer reading list before school starts. I‘m super excited to start reading Cinder, I have heard a lot of love and great things from the series so my expectations are definitely high.
I might be slightly less active this month because of school, but I promise to do my best to fulfill my responsibilities as blogger! You’ll still see me lurking around your posts.
My classes starts on June 13, and I’m dreading it. I’m a Grade 11 student (STEM track), and there’ll be a lot of adjustment for me but I’ll hopefully get through them.
So there goes my May Wrap-up, it was definitely a productive and awesome month for books and blogging! Hope you too had an awesome month! Let me know all about it in the comments.
I wish all of us to have an amazing June, may the odds be ever in our bookish favor! So that’s a wrap guys! Thanks for reading.
Please do leave any comments, thoughts, messages, reactions, and/or suggestions! Thank you for reading. Until next time,
