She's got the books that kill.

May 2016 Wrap Up

It's June! You know what that means... Time for another wrap up!

Let's start with my TBR for May.

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell - Read! It was the book club choice and it was really fun.

The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson - Read! Holy cow, was that only last month I read that? It feels like last year.

The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee - Fail. It came in with a bunch of other books on hold, and it was just too big to tackle at the time. I have it on hold again.

The Distant Hours by Kate Morton - Fail. I actually did start this one, but I only read one chapter before I found an excuse to stop.

Men We Reaped by Jesmyn Ward - Read! I'm still thinking about this one. It was really good.

Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded by John Scalzi - Fail. Kind of. I read about a quarter of it, but it was pretty dense, and I had to return it to the library. I was out of renewals.

American Housewife: Stories by Helen Ellis - Read! This was so great. Such bizarre stories about strange people.

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld - Fail. This still hasn't come in at the library, but that's okay because I own it, now.

Delilah Dirk and the King's Shilling by Tony Cliff - Fail. I'm still waiting on this one from the library. But I haven't given up hope.

Well, there's four out of nine books read. Blargh.

Let's see what else I read in May.

Bone Gap by Laura Ruby - Yay! A Sequoyah Award List book. Gotta get those knocked out. It was pretty great, too.

American Vampire, Vol. 8 by Scott Snyder - This actually came in for the husbandface, but I stole it and read it first. Graphic novels don't take very long.

Uprooted by Naomi Novik - This is fairy-tale-esque with magicians and haunted woods and a handsome prince set in midieval Poland. Very cool.

That's it. Seven books.

Ever since my massive reading slump last Fall, I consider anything over 3 books a win. So I'll take it!

What did you read in May?
