I read 11 books last month, which I’d love to see as a sign that my desire to read has come back in force. However, it probably has as much to do with listening to several audiobooks while I worked to prep various items for VBS at my church, for which my husband and I are first-time directors this year. Still, it’s the first time I’ve been this high since before my mom died at the beginning of February, so whatever the reason, I’ll take it.
Here are the books I read in May:
Evil Genius by Chris Grabenstein (4 / 5)
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien (5 / 5)
Battle of the Ampere by Richard Paul Evans (3.5 / 5)
Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen, adapted for younger readers by Fern Siegel (4 / 5)
The Ferryman by Justin Cronin (4 / 5)
My Man Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse (4 / 5)
The Cat Who Said Cheese by Lilian Jackson Braun (4.5 / 5)
Little Town on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder (5 / 5)
The Sword Thief by Peter Lerangis (3 / 5)
Ramona the Brave by Beverly Cleary (5 / 5)
The Return of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle (3 / 5)
This list includes 2 ARCs and 1 re-read. My favorite book from May was Ramona the Brave. I started 0 series, continued 7 series, and finished (or caught up on) 1 series. My ever-changing short list of to-be-reads, as well as a flag for the book I’m currently reading and an ongoing list of those I’ve read and posted about can be found here.
I’m also keeping my Goodreads page updated with a more extensive list of to-be-reads. Despite my almost too-long TBR list, I’m always looking for more to add. Feel free to offer suggestions of your favorites or just recent reads you enjoyed.
