May was my biggest month of reading yet! I read eight total:
- Still Alice … Lisa Genova
- The Farm (audio) … Tom Rob Smith, read by J. Langton and S. Toren
- The Girl on the Train … Paula Hawkins
- The Tusk That Did the Damage … Tania James
- Attempting Normal (audio) … Marc Maron
- Find Me … Laura van den Berg
- I Never Had It Made (ebook) … Jackie Robinson, as told to Alfred Duckett
- Delicious Foods … James Hannaham
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 Alice, The Farm, Attempting Normal, Delicious Foods)
- Two audiobooks (The Farm, Attempting 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 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?
