monthly recap imageMay was my biggest month of reading yet! I read eight total:

may recap

Attempting Normal by Marc Maron was my favorite non-fiction read this month, and Delicious Foods by James Hannaham was my favorite fiction (review coming). I’m pleased I was able to stay on top of my book review posts in May! I love summer.

  • Half from the library (Still AliceThe FarmAttempting NormalDelicious Foods)
  • Two audiobooks (The FarmAttempting Normal) and one ebook (I Never Had It Made), which brings my ebook challenge up to 3 of 12 (not great, I’ll get there)
  • Half women / half men authors, three authors of color, two non-US authors

Other bookish items this month:

I stopped by my local Half-Price Books and picked up this little gem. Ready for the Misery Read-along! (On Twitter: #MiseryRAL)


I didn’t attend BEA 2015, but one of the coolest librarians at the KC Public Library was there and picked up a book for me! (Did I mention she’s the coolest?)

I can’t wait to dig into that one! And I really enjoyed following everyone’s tweets and posts about BEA, even if I was hanging back and not commenting much.

Also, my husband went to see Chuck Palahniuk at the Uptown Theater a few nights ago, hosted by Rainy Day Books, on tour promoting his latest Fight Club 2 graphic novel and Make Something Up short story collection. Apparently it was an EPIC time—hoping to wrangle him into a guest blog post about it here.

How did May go for you? What are you looking forward to reading in June?
