May Wrap Up

May!

In May I read 12 books for a total of 2,927 pages and averaged 94 pages per day. Only about 700 more pages compared to last month, but I read way more books (though most were pretty slim). Two were advanced copies sent to me for review.

Sunlight & Shadow by Cameron Dokey

Paper Towns by John Green
Notable quotes:
“You keep expecting people not to be themselves.”
“It is so hard to leave – until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.”

A Time of Exile by Katharine Kerr

F This Test by Richard Benson – a quick little read, these books always make me giggle

The Serpent of Venice by Christopher Moore

Saved by the Bell by Judy Black

Bayside Madness by Beth Cruise

Reach for Infinity by Jonathan Strahan

American Vampire vol 6 by Scott Snyder

Mambo in Chinatown by Jean Kwok

The Red Fairy Book edited by Andrew Lang
Notable quotes:
“He knew that the way to succeed in anything is not to give up.”
“Follow your dream, and if you do not find the happiness that you seek, at any rate you will have had the happiness of seeking it.”

Saga vol 1 by Brian K. Vaughan
Notable quotes:
“Violence is stupid. Even as a last resort, it only ever begets more of the same. Conflict always has consequences.”

  1. Hahaha if I set monthly reading goals I would die under the crushing weight of disappointment! There’s not enough hours in a day. My favourite May read so far was probably On the Road, though I’m not done it yet.

    • My goal is 8-10 books a month (and I include comics in this, so sometimes it’s quite easy) but I don’t really feel any pressure. If I don’t make it, I just try again next month. But I’m making an effort to catch up with my collection.
