May 2014: Review Recap!

Review Recap

This was a fantastic month of reviews on The Obsessive Bookseller, as all of the books featured were rated three stars or higher. Having finally caught up with all of my “obligatory” reading (i.e. all of those digital ARCs I selfishly requested back in February), I finally am able to pick up the books that entice me the most… and there were some good ones:

Dragon’s Blood by Jane Yolen – 4.5/5 stars

The Immortal Crown by Richelle Mead – 5/5 stars!

City of Dragons by Robin Hobb – 5/5 stars!

The Selection Stories by Kiera Cass – 4/5 stars

The One by Kiera Cass – 3/5 stars

 After the End by Amy Plum – 3.5/5 stars

And my favorite:

Not a drop to drink

Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis – 4.5/5 stars

I have to say, The Immortal Crown almost got the number one spot, but McGinnis’ book was just too awesome to ignore (and that’s saying something, considering Mead is my favorite author)!

Waiting on Wednesday features:

 So many great titles coming out! I am most excited to read Snow Like Ashes – YA Fantasies are the best!

 Top Ten Tuesday Features:

Top Ten Books I’m Reading Before the Vegas Valley Book Festival 2014!

Top Ten Books My Friends Recommended!

 I missed two TTTs this month because I just wasn’t feeling the topic… And I loathe throwaway posts.

Escape Reality Book Club:

 May’s Selection / June’s Selection

  1. I have been meaning to start the Rain Wilds Chronicle for so long! I got an ARC of the next Fitz & Fool book (squee!) so I really need to prioritize that this summer so I can be totally caught up. Hobb is one of my absolute favorite authors for sure.
