I’m still recovering from my week in New York City for Book Expo America, so this post is going to be on the short side. Without further ado, here are the seven books I finished reading in May:
- Harris, Blake: Console Wars (nonfiction)
- Thomas, Rob: Veronica Mars: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line (fiction/audio book)
- lockhart, e.: We Were Liars (YA fiction)
- Poundstone, William: Rock Breaks Scissors (nonfiction)
- Novak, B.J.: One More Thing (short stories)
- Ames, Robert: The Good Spy (nonfiction)
- Johansen, Erika: The Queen of the Tearling (YA fiction/fantasy)
Looking back, it honestly feels like I read a lot more than this — I guess that means I had a great month of reading, even if I didn’t finish a huge number of titles. For those counting, this puts me at 41 books for the year, well on my way to hitting my goal of 100 books.
On a personal front, the biggest news of the month was my sixth blogiversary. Thanks to everyone for your kind words on this accomplishment — it feels really great to have made it this long.
A Look to June
I have a feeling June will be a bit of an odd month of reading. I have a very small pile of review copies, and otherwise I think the month is pretty open. The books on my radar right now include Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey (June 10 from Harper) and The Fever by Megan Abbot (June 17 from Little, Brown).
I also have a couple of books from earlier this year that arrived in my mailbox before I left for BEA that I am really excited about, Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong by Juliet Macur and Out With It: How Stuttering Helped Me Find My Voice by Katherine Preston.
When I sort through my books from BEA this week, I’m sure a few books I’m not thinking of now will move up my list. But for now, I’m excited to have a reading month that feels almost entirely unstructured!
What books are you looking forward to reading this month?
