May 2018 Monthly Round Up

Hello folks.

Yeah. We are at the end of May. How the heck did that happen?

This month hasn’t been much better than last month if I am honest. I’m still poorly sick. Normally, I am pretty good at hiding my medical condition but even I have to admit that I look like ass at the moment. Sad times.

Still, I have read some great books this month. Let me tell you what they are

  • Discover the Art of Bullet Journaling by CS Zahn (Non Fiction Short)
  • Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (Hardback Copy)
  • My Life as a Bench by Jaq Hazell (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven (Paperback Copy)
  • The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • 84 Ribbons by Paddy Egers (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • Love Hurts by Malorie Blackman (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • To Rise Again at a Decent Hour by Joshua Ferris (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • The Girl by Michelle Morgan (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • The Burning Chambers by Kate Mosse (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • In Praise of Women’s Bodies by Gloria Steinem (Essay)
  • Gloria Steinem: Women of Wonder by Lynn Gilbert (Non Fiction)
  • Ink by Alice Broadway (Paperback Copy)
  • Shelf Love by Ben Dolnick (Essay Collection)
  • Rio Grande, Wisconsin by JoAnn Novak (Short Story)
  • A Berlin Love Song by Sarah Matthias (Paperback Copy)
  • Entyvio Tablet by James Lee Anderson (Non Fiction)
  • The Real Life Mary Poppins – The Life and Times of P. L. Travers by Paul Brody (Non Fiction)
  • Spilt Milk by D. K. Cassidy (Short Story Collection)
  • The Big F by Maggie Ann Martin (Paperback Copy)
  • Your Eighties by Sarah Lewis (Non Fiction)
  • The Hot Guy by Mel Campbell and Anthony Morris (NetGalley Review Copy)

Not as many books read this month as last month but still a hefty few. I have managed to gain another % in my NetGalley rating. I am now 39% and I have worked out I have to read and review 9 NetGalley books to increase by 1% – make of that what you will of my NetGalley TBR pile.

I’m currently reading My Best Friends Exorcism by Grady Hendrix which is pretty good and hopefully I will have that finished soon.

Sorry this is only short today folks but I am really feeling a bit gross. Before I go though, the covers below are of the books that I particularly enjoyed this month. I would most definitely recommend them.
