May Wrap up - Book Haul & What to Expect Next Month

Welcome, welcome my dear readers.

May is over already and time is flying by. The school year is almost to an end and summer is almost here. I'm so excited to be going to Croatia this summer and after summer another challenge is waiting for me; I'm moving from second grade to 4th/5th grade!
I do feel like May was a good month for me. It was pretty busy as well, but I did a lot of fun things and I read a good amount of pages.

This month I was trying to find my way on my blog. I tried posting things other than reviews. This month I did an Unhaul and another Get To Know Me Tag. I also participated in some Sunday Posts. I decided to do a Sunday Post every two weeks, I think that works best for my blog.

I did not haul ANY books. I'm pretty proud of myself, since I have full bookshelves and I'm trying to only buy books that I really want or are in a series that I read.

I do hope you had a good month and I wish you lots of good reading days in the upcoming month!

Meanwhile, Kady's cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza's ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys—an old flame from Asha's past—reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict.

With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.

Booktag: Unhaul #1

A lot of bookbloggers and readers have a never-ending TBR. My TBR is so big, that it sometimes scares me. I decided to visit my own Goodreads shelves and to Unhaul 10 books.

Please feel free to participate and unhaul some of your books. I'd love to know what books you decided to unhaul!

Pages: 221

Synopsis
During the last days of Narnia, the land faces its fiercest challenge—not an invader from without but an enemy from within. Lies and treachery have taken root, and only the king and a small band of loyal followers can prevent the destruction of all they hold dear in this, the magnificent ending to The Chronicles of Narnia.

The Last Battle is the seventh and final book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has been drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over sixty years. A complete stand-alone read, but if you want to relive the adventures and find out how it began, pick up The Magician's Nephew, the first book in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Review: The Rosie Project (Don Tillman #1)

Author: Graeme Simsion
Started reading: April 21st 2019
Finished the book: April 26nd 2019
Pages: 305
Published: October 1st 2013
Source: Kindle Copy
Goodreads score: 4.02
My score:
Synopsis
Don Tillman is getting married. He just doesn't know who to yet.But he has designed the Wife Project, using a sixteen-page questionnaire to help him find the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver.
Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also fiery and intelligent and beautiful. And on a quest of her own to find her biological father - a search that Don, a professor of genetics, might just be able to help her with.

The Wife Project teaches Don some unexpected things. Why earlobe length is an inadequate predictor of sexual attraction. Why quick-dry clothes aren't appropriate attire in New York. Why he's never been on a second date. And why, despite your best scientific efforts, you don't find love: love finds you.
