May 2020 Wrap-Up

Hello Kittens! I’m going to bring you something a little different today. Normally this blog is just reviews, but I actually read more books than I end up reviewing and I wanted to show you a little bit of that side of things. Plus, I’m a data nerd so I thought some of you might enjoy the stats as well.

Without further ado, here’s what I read in May (with my reviews linked):

The Other People by C. J. Tudor

-Lemon Meringue Pie Murder (Hannah Swensen # 4) by Joanne Fluke

The Fallen Girls by Kathryn Casey

-Witch Way to Murder by Shirley Damsgaard

Rewind by Catherine Ryan Howard

Fate of the Fallen by Kel Kade

The Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Philippe

The Holdout by Graham Moore

-Giant Days, Vol. 2 by John Allison

Of Literature and Lattes by Katherine Reay

-And I Do Not Forgive You by Amber Sparks

-Bunny by Mona Awad

-Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff (Illuminae Files #1)

 

That was a total of 13 books for May.

Not too bad of a month, all things considered. My reading has really kept me sane during the long weeks of quarantine. I DNF’ed (did not finish) 1 book this month that is not listed above. It’s always hard to quit a book, but it was wordy and complex in the first 20 pages and I just didn’t have the brainpower to commit to it right now.
