BOOKS READ IN MAY









Well, here it is the second of June and I am behind already as a blogger. I have a good excuse this time. Last weekend I flew to Houston, TX for my granddaughter's high school graduation and just got back a couple days ago. Of course, I got no reading done so had to power read the first reading group book of the month for last night's meeting. You will find out what that was tomorrow when I post the June Reading Group Update.

Compared to April, I had a wonderful reading month with no duds, no slumps, and all kinds of interesting stories. I finished 12 books, an acceptable amount for me and my reading goals. Due to an unusual circumstance, I cannot tell you what one of the books was. So it is a "secret book."

Stats: 12 books read, 9 fiction, 3 non-fiction, 8 by women, 2 from My Big Fat Reading Project, 1 translated, 1 speculative.

Favorites: The Death of Artemio Cruz, LaRose, and Gold Flame Citrus
Least favorite: None. All were great.





























How was your reading in May? Any recommendations for me?

  1. I hope you had a nice trip to the graduation. Not to worry: I'm behind too, my folks are visiting. So there's no time right now. I like your list of books you read. I'm curious to hear about quite a few of these. I just finished The Tortilla Curtain from 1995 by TC Boyle which I'd recommend. We had a good discussion on it at book club. Edgy & anxiety filled, but also a bit of Boyle spoofy humor too. Enjoy your June books!

  2. It's great that you managed to read 12 books. I wish! I finished one and I'm still reading another, so I could call it 1.5?!
