I can’t believe May is gone already. As usual, I have read a mix of new books and re-read some well-loved books. Here are my favorites:
A Note Yet Unsung – Tamera Alexander – Clean romance, historical romance – a beautiful story of love, music, loss, and striving to achieve your dreams —  5

See You in the Cosmos – Jack Cheng – Middle Grade/YA Fiction – beautifully told, with one of the strongest POV voices I’ve heard in a long time. I’m definitely going to read some more of Jack Cheng’s books. – 5

The Theory of Happily Ever After – Kristin Billerbeck – clean romance – funny yet poignant – 4

Dragon’s Curse – H.L. Burk – YA Fantasy – First book in the series “The Dragon and the Scholar” – I loved it – 5

Dragon’s Debt – H.L. Burk – YA Fantasy – Book 2 in the series  — good story! Can’t wait to see what happens. – 4

And Sheralyn Pratt’s amazing books: — 5 — Suspense, Romantic suspense, mystery – Incredible storytelling and intriguing, believable drama; plots that keep getting more complicated, and such strong characters that they have become real to me.

1.5 The Avenues
2. Stalk Lake City
