In case you haven’t notice, in May I redesigned the blog (on a whim, it was time for a change!) and it actually turned out to be a month of new beginnings: most exciting of which was being given my start date to begin in a new library (yes, that’s five now).
In May, I read 21 books, including 5 graphic novels and 4 non-fiction titles.
For the #2016ClassicsChallenge, I read ‘The Cement Garden’ by Ian McEwan. I pretty much hated it, but I still gave it 3 stars for effort.
For my personal series challenge I read ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’. I should have read the next two titles in the series by now, but I haven’t gotten around to that yet… It’s something I’m going to address in June. I’m extremely behind on my challenge, but I’m striving to catch up.
However, I did manage to read all of the YA Book Prize nominees before the awards ceremony: congratulations to Sarah Crossan for winning with ‘One’ – it’s a beautiful book written in free verse, and I loved it when I read it!
The best books I read in May?
I hope you enjoyed this wrap-up! How was your May?
