May was an excellent month. I finally feel like I'm getting back into the groove I was in last summer which was an awesome groove to be in. I've been looking for this groove ever since the first of the year! The Bout of Books 10 put me back on course with plenty of five-star reads.
The House at the End of Hope Street, by Menna van Praag wasn't the greatest for me, but it was a cute way to start the month.
Upstairs at the White House, by J.B. West was a significant step up. I can always count on good non-fiction to boost my reading.
The Namesake, by Jhumpa Lahiri, was a stellar look at the Indian immigrant experience, and it wrestled with lots of issues of identity, and I'm always down for that.
The Enchanted, by Rene Denfeld, was a home run. Magical, brutal, and just an enthralling story.
Sweet Tooth, volumes 1 and 2, by Jeff Lemire were some of the best graphic novel reading I've done in a while. I liked 'em better than Saga. I know!
The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss, was a big change of pace. It's been forever since I read any epic fantasy, and I couldn't have picked a better book to rekindle that interest.
We Were Liars, by e. lockhart. Just read it.
When She Woke, by Hillary Jordan, is my book club pick for June, but I couldn't wait to pick it up.
As you can see, I have a lot of books from this month left to review, so stay tuned! I have much gushing to do.
How did your May reading turn out?
