the duke and I


One of my goals this month was to read 10 books. Especially I am far behind my Goodreads reading challenge. This month I had a few extra days off because of 2 holidays and my birthday, so that is why I wanted to read 10 books. Unfortunately, I only read 4. Which is still good but I am a little bit disappointed. These are the books I read in May.

Books I read in May

the witches

The Witches – Roald Dahl: I believe this is more of a children’s book, although I wouldn’t recommend it to little children. Some things were pretty creepy. I mean, it is about witches. But I also think that BFG is a little bit creepy (in a fun way). Anyway, this is one of the books by Roald that I’ve never read. And it was okay, but somehow I was expecting a little more from it? Maybe I am just too old for it now? But I still want to watch the movie (2020 version) of this book.

spoiler alert

Spoiler Alert – Olivia Dade: Okay, I remember I once read a book (fangirl) which was about a girl who wrote fanfics. And the writer did add parts of those fanfics to every chapter I believe (it was a long time ago). I remember I didn’t like that. And now I am sure it wasn’t the writers’ fault or anything. It is just me. It is something I don’t care about apparently. Spoiler Alert also included parts of the fanfic and I wasn’t a huge fan of this either. But I liked the rest of the story.

the duke and I

The Duke and I – Julia Quinn: This is the first book of the Bridgerton series. After watching the Bridgerton series on Netflix, I decided I also want to read the books. The first book is about Daphne Bridgerton who wants to find the right husband for herself but every man sees her as a best friend instead of a possible future wife. But then she meets Duke Simon Bassett and they make a deal. They pretend they are a couple because it has benefits for both of them. Every man will suddenly realize Daphne could be a wonderful wife and everyone else will leave Simon alone because he doesn’t want to get married.

I really enjoyed reading this book and it is pretty similar to the series except for a few things. But the important things are in the Netflix series. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series, about the other Bridgerton brothers and sisters.

Evvie drake starts over

Evvie Drake starts over – Linda Holmes: Evvie wants to run away from her husband but on the day she wants to leave, her husband dies. Nobody knows she is not really sad about his death and nobody knows she wanted to leave him. Her house is now too big and too expensive, so she rents a part of her house to the famous baseball player Dean. They immediately become friends. I really enjoyed this book as well. I liked that this book wasn’t slow-paced and the writer didn’t add too many useless details, which is great. I liked that. Sometimes I am just too impatient and I just want to know what is going to happen.
