The Month's Wrap-Up

Can you believe it's already May?  Time is flying and the kid's will be done with school in 22 days!  I'll have to compile my summer reading list soon.

I had a good reading month!  I've read 7 books and 1/2 of an eighth. My book club book choice Picking Cotton by Jennifer Thompson-Cannino turned out to be much better than I ever thought it could be, my online book club Authors By The Alphabet for the letter F, Still Life With Husband by Lauren Fox, was ok. Click on the club title if you'd like to join :)   I had one really big stinker, About Grace by Anthony Doerr.  OMG that book was soooo bad I never should have finished it!!  My review is *HERE*

Right now I'm about halfway through Shadowfever.  This book is just fantastic, and it has had me gasping, heart-clenching and tearing up a bunch of times already.  My oh my I love Jerricho Barnes!  Mac  has come a long way since the first book.  I can't wait to see how it finishes.

What's up for May?  I have a few goodies coming.  Here they are-

Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 9)Beneath A Red Blood MoonLittle Bee: A Novel
The First Cut: A NovelA Kiss of Shadows (Meredith Gentry, Book 1)Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, Book 11)

This month is a bit heavy on the PNR, that's ok a couple of these are in my TBR pile which I have my challenge going for and want to whittle that monster down!  Little Bee is a book club choice, again I'm not too anxious about reading, the second is the letter E for my online club, The First Cut by Dianne Emley.  We went back so we wouldn't miss any letters if possible.  Sounded real good and I've not read her yet.  J.R Ward is up as soon as I'm through with Shadowfever.  I love this series, some of the books most certainly more than others, V is my favorite brother followed by Zhadist, so I look forward to seeing him in this one, with Payne being his twin.  And no, I'm not even a little embarrassed by the corniness of them, and all the branding the Warden throws around, never mind her lingo.  I will then read Dead Reckoning.  It should get here today, my dd will chomp it down first, then I'll read it.  I love this series, and I love the show too.  I am anxious to see what Miss Charlaine has up for us next!  I haven't yet started Laurel K Hamiliton's Merry Gentry series, and I'm anxious too see what that's all about so I look forward to A Kiss Of Shadows.  At some point I need to get back to Anita Blake, but I am angry at the spin LKH has taken it so I haven't picked it up since finishing #16 Danse Macabre well over a year ago.

Of course the order sometimes changes, depending on my mood, and maybe I'll be able to squeeze an extra in there too but this is my reading for May.  How about you, got a list compiled or do you fly by the seat of your pants?

Happy Reading


  1. I had a horrible April for reading & blogging! I didn't even get the D book read.....ugh!

  2. Hi Paula, I cannot believe it's May either!! what the heck! lol School is in session here in NJ until June 21, so I'm not counting down the days quite yet.. but I sure am happy spring is finally here on the east coast.

    I'm so glad you're enjoying SHADOWFEVER. I hope you love it till the end. I thought it was a thrilling read.

    I just finished LOVER UNLEASHED the other day. I loved it! I borrowed the HC from the library and had to return it already. I wanted to reread some parts. Guess I'll have to wait for the paperback. ;)

    I've had LITTLE BEE on my to-read from the library list for a while. I'll keep my eye out for your thoughts.

    I'll be picking up THE FIRST CUT this week!

    Happy May reading! xo
