I saw a lot of change in May, particularly, I started a full-time job in a new library system. The month was mostly spent flailing about and trying to keep up with all my new life changes. It’s been amazing so far, and I definitely come home tired for the right reason. However, May also saw my reading turn into a haphazard mess, and I found myself trying to learn when I had free time for my hobbies. That is still a new and I’m getting used to it. Plus, summer is here, and I am ready for adventures.
As always with “Fave of the Month,” I try to choose books I didn’t review or get an advance copy of. While I read and reviewed some amazing books in May (which I don’t feel like I am caught up on), here was my favourite for the month of May:
Like No Other
by Una LaMarche (Published: Published July 14th 2015 by Razorbill)
This book was addictive and reminded me of a thriller at times. This star-crossed lovers story is enlightening as well as scary at times. There were genuine parts where I gasped because I couldn’t get over what was happening. LaMarche is super respectful about the Jewish faith in this story, and if anything through Devorah’s character, I learned a lot about what it means to have a Hasidic upbringing and yet I couldn’t help myself but cheer for her and Jaxon to be together. An excellent read!
