Month of Me (Belated post)

Once again for the month of May (my birth month) I decided to take a break from the pressure of galleys and read whatever I wanted to read.  It was nice to make a dent in my to-be-read list (a small minor dent but still it's something) and to read books on my shelves and kindle for a change. In time, I do plan to review these books but for now I'm just going to give you a list of the books I read during May.

  1. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart -Yes it was a galley but one by a favorite author that I was dying to read.
  2. The Diviner's by Libba Bray - This has been on my shelf since Christmas.
  3. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry (who I think is the biggest sweetheart and who's book I bought but kept not having time to read so I saved it for this month)
  4. Indexing by Seanan McGuire - I started this book a year ago as a Kindle Serial but my Kindle always lost it's place when it updated so I waited until the book was complete to finish the story.
  5. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell - Why did I wait so long to read this geek fantastic book?
  6. Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick - I seem to like everything he writes. 
  7. More Than This by Patrick Ness - Another favorite author and a book I received at Christmas. 
  8. The Living by Matt de la Pena - I finished this June 2 but I started it in May so it's going on this list. Another favorite author and book I'd been waiting to read. 
So that's my productive to-be-read tackling month of me!  When going through this list I realized I hadn't put half on Goodreads because I'd just been reading for fun, not tracking or writing things down.  It was a great month of books that reminded me why I love to read.  I'll definitely be doing this again next May!
