Monthly Reading Wrap Up -- May 2016

May was a great month!  The best month so far this year for my reading life!  And also a great month for discovering new series, and a great month for reading some already beloved authors.  It was very much an overall great month, even despite some of the few more disappointing reads.  Because even with some disappointing reads, there were many more very enjoyable books.

May was a great reading month!  :D

May Reading Stats

Total works read:  18

  • 3 novellas
  • 1 short story

Average rating:  3.39 Stars
  • Highest Rated:  Written In Red by Anne Bishope // 4.5 Stars
  • Lowest Rated:  Prince Joe by Suzanne Brockmann // 1.5 Stars

Series I started reading:
  • The Others by Anne Bishop
  • Tall, Dark & Dangerous by Suzanne Brockmann

Favorite reads:  Written in Red was immensely enjoyable and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.  Barely Breathing is Pamela Clare's newest book and I just adore Pamela Clare, so this one was definitely a favorite this month--again, I look forward to seeing new installments.  And while Jayne Castle and Amanda Quick's books weren't all that perfect, they were immensely enjoyable!

Disappointing reads:  Really, the biggest disappointment was the one book that got a very, very low rating: Prince Joe.  It really just was NOT what I'd been expecting.

Coming Up In June

Tentative TBR

Other Stuff

With June comes a nice vacation time that I am immensely looking forward to.  And while half of that vacation time will be spent running around with the family, the rest of it is ALL MINE to do as I wish!  And what I wish is to read.  And read.  And READ!  I've got a pretty big list of books I'm hoping to finish in June.  But, just as well, I've also got some non-bookish activities I need to take care of.

So... while I've got a big reading list going, I'm not entirely sure I'll get to all the books on that list.  Or maybe I will.  It's hard to say.  It's so hard to keep myself in control when I go to the library.  And for my birthday, I am also going to be taking my happy ass to the bookstore for a gift to myself.  And it will be hard not to want to buy ALL THE BOOKS!  Much like it'll be hard for me to try not to check out ALL THE BOOKS when I go to the library...
