May was at least a little bit of a better reading month than April, although I’m still more behind on reviews than usual due to a number of factors (moving, being without steady Internet for a while after moving, general craziness due to buying our place, and of course going to New York City for a few days for Book Expo America and the Book Blogger Convention, both of which I hope to post more about later this week).
In May I got halfway through Feed by Mira Grant, a 600 page book. Complete books read during May are:
20. Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews
21. Servant of a Dark God by John Brown
22. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
23. Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews
Eek, I haven’t reviewed any of those yet although I have started on a review of Magic Burns.
Favorite book read during May: This is an easy one – Magic Strikes. I read this one on the bus while traveling and it was the perfect read for it since it was so easy to get absorbed in and it didn’t have a dull moment. When I finished it right after boarding the bus to Boston, I was really upset I didn’t have the next book and didn’t want to start any other book. So I read the part that was available for free on iBooks and bought Magic Bleeds the very next day. It really surprised me just how much I enjoyed it. I am seriously considering putting up a post for spoiler discussion of the first three books in this series, followed by one for the whole series after more people have had a chance to read the book that came out last week – so if you’re interested, let me know.
June Plans: Yes, I know, I’ve been trying to avoid this. I couldn’t do anything but start Magic Bleeds next, but after that I’m going to finish Feed and read some more review copies since I’ve read so many books I’ve bought myself lately. Tentative planned reads after that are: The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker by Leanna Renee Hieber (and a give away if I can find the extra copy they sent me in all this disorganization from moving), Shadow Bound by Erin Kellison and Stealing Fire by Jo Graham.
What did you read during May? What did you think of the books you read?
