May Wrap Up 2018

May. How are we out of May? The fifth month of the year? Just, wow. I am speechless. This month was a little out of the norm for me. I went away for five days to a friends house for her 21st. This meant going back to the town I actually spent five years of my life in. It actually went super wellI had such a good time and definitely made some amazing memories, so much so I actually want to go back soon. The biggest hindrance of this trip is that I have developed a cold, blah. Additionally, I also had no time to read. I was either chatting with friends or sleeping after staying up to 3am drinking (oops).

I still managed to read a pretty great amount of books this month. Twelve is definitely something I am personally happy with. I know I’ll have heaps of time to read next month because I’m going to be on uni break which will be 90% part-time job hunting.

Goodreads blurb:

Meet Daisy Winters. She’s an offbeat sixteen-year-old Floridian with mermaid-red hair; a part time job at a bootleg Walmart, and a perfect older sister who’s nearly engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland. Daisy has no desire to live in the spotlight, but relentless tabloid attention forces her to join Ellie at the relative seclusion of the castle across the pond. 

While the dashing young Miles has been appointed to teach Daisy the ropes of being regal, the prince’s roguish younger brother kicks up scandal wherever he goes, and tries his best to take Daisy along for the ride. The crown–and the intriguing Miles–might be trying to make Daisy into a lady . . . but Daisy may just rewrite the royal rulebook to suit herself.
