Wrap Up

Hello bookworms!!

I feel like I say this every month but I just can’t believe how fast time is flying by. Today is the last day of May so I am bringing you my monthly wrap up. This month I read 6 books and listened to my very first audiobook. So, without further ado here are all the books I read this month.

Our Dirty Secret by Vivian Ward Review

Favorite Book of the Month

Out of the 7 books I read this month 3 of them were 5 star reads for me so trying to pick between the 3 is proving to be a little difficult. I think I am going to have to go with Our Dirty Secret by Vivian Ward. It was the first book I have ever read by this author and it blew me away. It was everything I could have asked for in a romance plus so much more.

Giveaways

I have won a few giveaways on Instagram this month. I have actually only received a couple packages so far so I am only going to include those in this post. Author Kathryn Berla hosted a giveaway for 6 books on her Instagram @authorkathrynb I had only heard of one of these books but I decided to take a shot at it and I won. I honestly still can’t believe I won all of these books. When I got these in the mail I immediately read the synopsis for each one and they all sound like they could potentially be really good

She also included a bookmark that went along with one of her books. It’s in the above picture but I realized you couldn’t see it so I took a picture of the front and back so you could get a better look at it.

The last giveaway I have for now is from Julia @thatbookiebookmarks on Instagram. She was doing a giveaway for a 4oz candle of your choice for 5 people. I was beyond excited when I won this because I have been really wanting some more candles and I had heard nothing but good things about her products.

Sorry this picture is so much bigger than the rest when I tried to adjust the size the picture got blurry for some reason. Look at that candle!! It is so gorgeous and it smells amazing. I almost don’t want to burn it because it is so pretty.

    1. I am behind on all of my challenges except for my Goodreads challenge. I don’t think I have read a book that counts toward beat the Backlist in like 2 months maybe even more. Yay we both read seven books in May!!
