I knew that I wasn't going to surpass the 16 books I read in April, but May's totals weren't too shabby. I read 10 books, including 1 children's book reviewed with The Girl and 1 book for the War Through the Generations WWII reading challenge (bringing my total for the challenge to 9). If I've calculated correctly, I've read 52 books so far this year, bringing me closer to my goal of 100. And I'm still on track with my goal of reviewing every book I read. It's been exhausting, but well worth it.
Anyway, here is the list of books I read in May [click on the titles to read my reviews]:
The 8th Confession by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro
A Lucky Child by Thomas Buergenthal
The Wonder Singer by George Rabasa
The Four Corners of the Sky by Michael Malone
Dear Anais: My Life in Poems for You by Diana M. Raab
The Triumph of Deborah by Eva Etzioni-Halevy
Princess Katie and the Silver Pony (Tiara Club book 2) by Vivian French
The Jewel Trader of Pegu by Jeffrey Hantover
Mating Rituals of the North American WASP by Lauren Lipton
Precious by Sandra Novack
Of the authors listed above, I was happy to welcome Lauren Lipton to talk about her writing space and to interview George Rabasa and Sandra Novack.
I have numerous review copies to read over the next few months, but I'm not accepting as many these days so I can focus more on the War Through the Generations challenge and books that have been sitting on my shelf unread for too long. I wish there were more hours in the day for reading!
Are you all making progress on your reading goals? How many books did you read in May? Let me know in the comments!
