My reading has really slowed down this month. Summer has definitely arrived here, and we’ve been spending a lot of time outside, enjoying the weather. So it’s natural that my reading speed is slow. To offset that, I’ve been really enjoying the books I have been getting to, so that’s good.

Books read:

In May – 11
Year-to-date – 68 (halfway to my goal of 125 with a month to go before halfway through the year!)

Favourite book of the month: This was a really hard choice this month because I read a number of great books. I usually pick a really powerful book as my favourite, but I think I’m going to go with Seven Exes Are Eight Too Many (Seven Exes #1) by Heather Wardell because it is such a great fit for my reading mood all month. It’s a fun and light romance with a lot of humour. Perfect for the start of summer.

Stats:

Time for the stats and charts. For not having read many books this month, there are some significant changes in the year-to-date values. It’s pretty crazy how one month can change things so much.
*Note: My charts are missing a book because I finished after getting the info ready.

May age genresLooking at the age genre, I stuck mostly to adult books this month, and that has resulted in a slowly increasing section of pie for the year so far.

May ratingsWhen it comes to ratings, I think I had a really successful reading month. I completely loved half the books I read, and thought highly of most of them. That’s awesome!

May genresApparently this month was all about contemporary, mystery, and romance. It’s definitely a mood thing, because I’m reading a fantasy right now, and I feel like I’m struggling because I want to pick up a quick simple romance instead. So expect more romance in June.

  1. 11 is fantastic by my standards! Happy June reading!
