2022 Popsugar Reading Challenge - Update #5

  

Happy Saturday everyone and welcome to my fifth 2022 Popsugar Reading Challenge update with mini  reviews!  In May, I completed 3 books for this month for a total of 32 of 50 books for the 2022 Popsugar Reading Challenge.  Keep reading to see my thoughts on the books I read in May:

❋ ❋ ❋ 
You know, I like watching K-dramas and movies, but for some reason I don't listen to all that much K-pop in comparison.  I know next to nothing about the behind the scenes of the bands or even the fan culture surrounding them, but I got a kick out of reading K-Pop Confidential (K-Pop Confidential #1) by Stephan Lee. I was just pleased to recognize some of the Korean words peppered throughout the story that I absorbed from all of the Korean tv and movies I've watched. That said it is fun to read a story featuring a look behind the curtain of the music or other entertainment industry and this is definitely well worth the time just for that aspect alone. I liked Stephan Lee's style quite a bit here. I think I'm going to have to look into more of their work in the future.

My review is also on Goodreads.


❋ ❋ 
Here's to Us (What If It's Us #2) by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera is a sequel, that now that I've read it, I can say that I didn't need it.  As much as I like both authors, this was disappointing.  I don't know about you, but I actually liked how What If It's Us ended.  With this sequel, though, it didn't have as much character development as I would have liked and the so many of the decisions made no sense.  With this, I actually started to actively dislike the two leads - and feel really bad for their respective love interests at the opening of this sequel.  I will say, though, that the narration from Noah Galvin and Froy Gutierrez earns an entire star on its own.

My review is also on Goodreads.


❋ ❋ ❋ 
Feed (Newsflesh Quintet #1) by Mira Grant  was such a pleasant surprise.  I didn't expect this to feature blogging quite so much. I wouldn't quit call this a zombie horror novel either. Either way, it was a great read and I'll definitely have to check out the rest of these books.

My review is also on Goodreads.
