May reading wrap up

I'm sorry, how the HELL is it June already?!

Books read: 34. I'm kind of surprised by this, to be honest. But then again, given that my commute to work is 90 minutes each way it probably shouldn't surprise me that much!
New vs rereads: 19 new books versus 15 rereads. It could be worse.
Most read genre: Contemporary. Again. But crime wasn't far behind!

Favourite book: Wild Justice by Kelley Armstrong. I'd been waiting a long time to read it, and it didn't disappoint.
Least favourite book: Black Iris by Leah Raeder. It was really dark and disturbing, and I had to DNF it because it was squicking me out so much.
Favourite cover: Ms Marvel: No Normal. It's glorious.

Diverse Books Project: It's going pretty well at the moment! Although I do really need to branch out and read more books with male protagonists...

In May, I ended up reading 3 graphic novels, 3 non-fiction books, and 28 novels. There are links to all my Goodreads reviews below!

  1. I can't believe it's June either! I swear it was just March yesterday. D: And whoa, 34 books? That's insane, and 15 of those were rereads! So glad your favorite book is a Kelley Armstrong one! I've been meaning to read more from her since I loved her Darkest Powers trilogy. :) Have an awesome June!

  2. 34?! SLAY ME. That's more than one a day. I CRY.

    YOU HAD SUCH GREAT READING MONTH. It's surprising that you DNFed black iris because I heard such good things about it. However, what's putting me off is the cover. I really dislike the cover, unfortunately. I'm glad you gave 4 stars to Nowhere but Here, though!

  3. DUDE YOU READ SO MUCH WELL DONE. I have that much reading time and I think I blog more than I read hehe. I can't help it. The internet. Gah. It's addicting. (But also 90mins each way of commuting time?! DUDE. You are amazing to stand that.)


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
