Is it really May already? There are so many books that I put off thinking I have months to read them and now, there’s no time at all! *flails* It’s a good thing I don’t put myself under any pressure to review to deadlines. Despite a 24 hour readathon, I only read 12 books in April. I’ve really been quite distracted and busy which hasn’t helped my reading. Fingers crossed I’ll have a more productive month in May. However I did read some amazing books and had some help from guest bloggers.

Here’s what made it onto the blog…


5 stars awarded to: Follow Me Down by Tanya Byrne, The Humans by Matt Haig, The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes and The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa.

Disappointed with: The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness, Mayhem by Sarah Pinborough and The Demonologist by Andrew Pyper.

Read and awaiting review: Zenn Scarlett by Christian Schoon, Kitty Steals the Show by Carrie Vaughn, The Iron King by Julie Kagawa and Care of Wooden Floors by Will Wiles.

Blogged about:

I went to London Book Fair and blogged about whether it’s worthwhile to visit as a blogger.
