May 2021 Reading Wrap-Up

Hiya friends! It’s time for another wrap-up post. Presenting to you a wrap-up for the books I read in May 2021. Just like April 2021 Wrap-Up, this post is also a month late. As I have already pointed out in this post: “A Short Update: A Non-Linear Trajectory for my Blog“, my blogging schedule has gone for a toss. I am not finding the time or the urge to read as many books as I used to previously. Consequently, I read three books in May also. Hopefully, in the coming months, I will be able to read more. Without further ado, let’s dive into the recap.

Monthly Wrap-Up: May 2021

A middle-grade fantasy about twelve-year-old Rea Chettri, who portals into an otherworldly realm to go on a secret quest to find her missing twin brother Rohan.

The Highlander’s Secret Son by Jeanine Englert

Rating: 3 out of 5.

When Brandon Campbell captures Fiona MacDonald on his land with a newborn baby, he is surprised. Fiona used to be the woman he loved, but now she is his sworn enemy after her family killed so many of his clan. But if what she says is true, how can he ensure, as the new Laird of clan Campbell, she is justly punished.

The book  kept my attention till the end through the various twists and turns dotting the plot. I liked the romance too.

I started this blog to discuss books that I read and movies that I watch. But the blog may not be purely restricted to that!
