The Month That Was... May 2013

An artificially high 17 books read in May as some of them were really rather short ebooks! Bout of Books helped the numbers early on in the month but have been struggling to concentrate lately. I have instead started a Buffy the Vampire Slayer re-watch from the beginning. So much fun (and sometimes you need to step away from books for a few days).


5 stars awarded to: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, Paper Aeroplanes by Dawn O'Porter and The New Hunger by Isaac Marion.

Read and awaiting review: The Rising by Kelley Armstrong, Winter Damage by Natasha Carthew, Mr Darwin's Gardener by Kristina Carlson and Cold Grave by Kathryn Fox.

Blogged about:

Another round up of the books that made it onto my wishlist and I had two fantastic guest bloggers: Matthew Quick and Matt Haig.

  1. Looks like you had an amazing reading month! I just finished The 5th Wave and absolutely loved it, I need the next book now! A Game of Thrones is on my summer TBR, hopefully I'll get to it soon :) x

  2. Re-watching Buffy? That sounds awesome! :)

  3. Lots of nice easy reads. Sometimes you really need months like those. :)

  4. Some lovely books here and great guests too!
