This month I read 14 books, ten of which heavily featured LGBT characters. This is more than my usual percentage, so I’m really happy it worked out that way.

Favorite Book: My Lady Jane! Clever and fresh and shippy and completely hilarious.
Least Favorite Book: A Fierce and Subtle Poison. Other than the beautiful writing, it just was not my thing at all.
Most Fun Book: My Lady Jane made me very happy.
Most Heartwarming Book: I’m going to have to go with Shira Glassman again.
Most Painful Book: I’ll Give You the Sun. I can see what people mean about it making them cry.
Most Surprising Book: ACOMAF, on so many different levels.
Characters of the Month: As I’ve already mentioned, Nate Foster is a cinnamon roll and must be protected at all costs. I felt a lot of things about Kate and August, both separately and together.
OTPs of the Month: Shulamit/Aviva and Kaveh/Farzin from the Mangoverse, both too precious for this world. Greta/Xie and Maria/Lily were good and heartbreaking.
Friendship of the Month: Kate and August from This Savage Song and Shulamit and Rivka from Mangoverse.
Book I’ll Try Really Hard to Get to Next Month: The Lies of Locke Lamora for real this time.

This month I read 6 books, 2 novellas. Basically I just binged read Air Awakens. That’s what I really did.

Favorite Book: Can I just chose the whole series of Air Awakens? Because like I read it so fast and hard I don’t even remember what plot points happened when. I just loved all of it.
Least Favorite Book: Bridge of Seven Sorrows. I was given this by my boss to understand the world of Age of Sigmar for work…But oh boy it was so far off from, well, everything I expect in a book that I couldn’t hardly wait for it to be over.
Most Fun Book: It’s just gonna be one of the Air Awaken’s books
Most Heartwarming Book: Ummm…Probably Fire Falling?
Most Painful Book: A Court of Thorns and Roses. Yes it was a reread, but also like how did I miss so many simple little things? Damn.
Most Surprising Book: The Kiss of Deception! I really enjoyed it, and I was surprised by a lot of the twists and turns.
Characters of the Month: Vhalla. That girl is so badass. I don’t know how to even begin with how great she is.
OTPs of the Month: Feyre/Ryhsand. Also Vhalla/Aldrik. (Oh look same as last month)
Friendship of the Month: Vhalla/Fitz. Those two are going to be the best.
Book I’ll Try Really Hard to Get to Next Month: I’m hoping to finish The Remnant Chronicles, and probably pick up a new series. Hopefully at least one arc so I can feel a part of ARC August.
