May 2020 Book Wrap Up

I was hoping to have a few more books on my list this month but I did have some really great middle grade fiction on this list that I absolutely just curled up in their magical worlds and loved every minute. I think my favourite read this month is a hard one its a toss up between Verify and Starfell they invoked such a range of emotions in me which is why I loved them so much. There was also the hilarious adventures of Sam Wu which I would love to have so many that you could read one a month they just make me laugh so much. Let me know what you read last month in the comments and if you have any suggestions for me. 

Here is the list:
