MONTHLY WRAP-UP: GOODBYE TO MAY!

may 24 another look at the patio

It is that time again!  The end of a month that seems to have flown by, but which brought a number of engaging books to read and review.  Click my titles to see my reviews.

Join Kathryn, at Book Date, in linking up to see what others are sharing in their monthly wrap-ups.

My total was lower than last month’s, but I still feel as though I had a good month.  I had a nice mix of contemporary fiction, nonfiction, psychological thrillers, and literary fiction.  A good month.

What did yours look like?

  1. I read a little less in the past month too, but really its the quality of the book that counts and like you was very happy with most of my books. I have not yet read a Mary Kubica book although I know many readers love her books.

  2. Great month 😀 I managed 16 books, but just barely. I’d say my favorite was Laura Thalassa’s The Queen of All that Lives.
