What I Read in May 2017

This past month I was able to read two new books and reread one of my favorites:

25817182

30037867

17745735

I was pretty happy with the fact that I was able to read three books this past month considering that I was hoping only to finish Midnight in Broad Daylight before June arrived.  I really enjoyed all the books I read (or in one case reread) and don’t know if I can chose a favorite for May.

A Study in Charlotte is a modern retelling of Sherlock Holmes and it was witty and entertaining.  Midnight in Broad Daylight is a nonfiction book about a Japanese American family before and during World War II.  I found this book highly insightful and it also proved to be timely for current events as well.  And lastly I decided to reread the Doon series again and just finish the first book Doon over the Memorial Day holiday here in America.  This series to me is the novel equivalent of comfort food.  I love the world of Doon so much and I was amazed by how much I’ve forgotten since reading it last year.  It may become a tradition to try and read the Doon series every summer.

Are there any books on your reread list? I’d love to know about in the comments below!

Happy reading,

What I Read in April 2017

For the month of April I was able to finish five books.  This is the most books I’ve read in a long time, so expect some more full reviews in the future!

Here’s the list of what I read:

1217100
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
6668467
Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
20322287
Kingdom Keeper: Disney After Dark (Book 1) by Ridley Pearson
30688763
My (not so) Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella
27465352
The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World: 2nd Edition by Susan Veness

As you can see I had a bit of a theme this month with two books focused on Disney World.  I’ve really been wanting to plan a second trip lately and decided that perhaps reading about the parks could fulfill my need to be there.  I’m planning to fully review both the first Kingdom Keepers book and The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World soon.

I think for obvious reasons I decide to pick up and read Thirteen Reasons Why because of the hype the series has been getting.  I actually picked this book up during a massive haul I did at Book Outlet and got it for less than $5, so I couldn’t pass up that opportunity either.  I enjoyed the book and have just started the series which is far more detailed than the book; so this might be a very rare case were I like the TV show better than the novel.

My favorite book I read this month is My (not so) Perfect Life. It was exactly what I was looking for and craving to read lately.  I’ve never read Sophie Kinsella before but I know a lot of people like her and I’d like to read something else of her’s again soon.  If you have a favorite Sophie Kinsella book please comment below, I’d love to check it out!

Happy Reading,
