Monthly Round Ups

May and June Reads.

A double month round up this time because the end of May came and went in a blur of post degree finishing activity. It was also a pretty quiet month reading wise, but I’m very pleased that June was stronger – I think I’m finally getting back in the reading habit.

First things first then, the books I read in May were:

  • Fearsome Dreamer by Laure Eve
  • Dads, Geeks and Blue Haired Freaks by Ellie Phillips
  • Beat the Band by Don Calame

I rated them all with 4 stars on Goodreads so I’m really glad I’ve decided to stop choosing a favourite book of the month. I’m far to indecisive for such a thing, I could spend hours arguing back and forward about why each book should earn the title!

Then came June and all of these books:

  • After Tomorrow by Gillian Cross
  • Feeling Sorry for Celia by Jaclyn Moriarty
  • Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
  • The Tornado Chasers by Ross Montgomery
  • Double Crossing by Richard Platt
  • The Flavours of Love by Dorothy Koomson
  • Boys Don’t Cry by Malorie Blackman
  • 21st Century Dodos by Steve Stack
  • Solomon Crocodile by Catherine Rayner
  • The Frank Show by David Mackintosh

June was my best reading month by far this year with 10 books read. It was also a really varied month, I read both fiction and non-fiction, books aimed at most age groups and from a range of genres. I at least liked every book – 2 got 3 stars, 5 got 4 stars and 3 were 5 star reads on Goodreads. It’s definitely a good job I’ve stopped with the favourite choosing!
