I feel like I had a productive month in May. I got all organised with my review writing and starting drafting stuff up in advance. I read 12 books, a bit above this year’s average but helped by several graphic novels.

You might notice a few older books sneaking onto the blog too. I’m trying to delve into my TBR a bit more often. They’ll still be plenty of new releases so don’t go anywhere. Plus I’m going to start doing more giveaways for unsolicited copies that I really am very unlikely to read.

Here’s what made it onto the blog…


5 stars awarded to: No Harm Can Come to a Good Man by James Smythe, Glaze by Kim Curran + Friday Brown by Vikki Wakefield.

Read and awaiting review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, Saga volumes 1 + 2 by Brian K. Vaughan + Fiona Staples, The Rain by Virginia Bergin + Riders of Berk: Dragon Down.
