May Wrap Up

I didn’t have the best start of the month, but I think I have ended it on a good note! I didn’t read anything until the third week of May and since then I haven’t been able to stop. I am a slow reader anyway, so this doesn’t reflect in the amount of books in this Wrap Up, but I am making my way through physical books again!

I went through a year long phase of not having enough concentration to sit down long enough to read a physical book, so I relied heavily on audiobooks. However, I have found my groove again and I am reading physical books again, so I am very happy. Anyway, here’s what I read in May:

Dear Evan Hansen by Val Emmich with Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul

I have a recent new obsession with musicals and after listening to soundtrack of Dear Evan Hansen on repeat for weeks, I found the book and I loved it. I really loved getting a deeper insight to the characters, especially Connor Murphey. I felt like I really got to know Connor a lot more than in the musical and it made me appreciate the story as a whole a lot more.

When The Curtain Falls by Carrie Hope Fletcher

This one is a new favourite of mine I think! Since reading When The Curtain Falls, I have bought all of her other fiction books. I am currently reading All That She Can See and I am loving that too! I am really enjoying Fletcher’s writing style and I honestly cannot wait to get through more of her books. Check out my full review here.

It Only Happens in the Movies by Holly Bourne

I will hopefully have a review of this book up soon! I really enjoyed It Only Happens in the Movies! It was my first book by Holly Borune (all new authors this month) and I think I will pick up her other books. Again, I really enjoyed the writing style and the escapism I was able to get from this book. It was a lighthearted read and I recommend it to anyone who is craving a little escapism right now.

  1. Amazing post! I love dear Evan Hansen too, itโ€™s such a unique musical and Iโ€™m sure book โ€“ I need to read it. Its great how it covers such serious topics but made it suitable and relatable for a younger audience it for a (plus so many of the songs are an absolute bop). Itโ€™s one of my top ten musicals I want to see, check out the other 9 ๐Ÿ™‚ https://hundredsandthousandsofbooks.blog/2020/11/03/ttt-top-ten-musicals-i-want-to-watch/
