May Reading Wrap-Up

Books Read in May

Hey there, future. My feet are probably hurting as I’m running around the Javits right now, but hopefully BEA is worth it. What all that means is this post might be a little premature. Though it’s highly unlikely, I suppose it’s possible that I’ll make it through another book before May ends…but here’s what I have as of May 24th (hey, I’m feeling productive!).


All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

The Year She Left Us by Kathryn Ma

Daring Greatly by Brene Brown

The Quick by Lauren Owen

The Map Thief by Michael Blanding

Bittersweet by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

The Three by Sarah Lotz

Mrs. Hemingway by Naomi Wood

The Good Lord Bird by James McBride

A Replacement Life by Boris Fishman


Best Book of the Month: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr


What were your favorites this month?

  • My favorite this month was definitely The Unfinished Child by Theresa Shea. Solo/down by Lauryn Allison was pretty wild-crazy-awesome, too. I had a great month with Bout of Books going on. You did, too!! Hope your shoes are holding up! ;)

  • I’ve been resisting All The Light, but i think I’m about to give in. One of my friends at RH just sent it to me and like you, she swears I’ll love it. Sometimes you’ve got to trust your friends.

  • Looks like an excellent month! The Three is one of the books from this month that’s sounded extra-fantastic to me, so I’m looking forward to my library trip this Sunday.

  • You read TEN books :-O

    All the Light We Cannot See is the book I would most likely want to read from this list.

  • Lindsey Stefan

    I really want to read Daring Greatly and I’m in the queue for All the Light at the library. I hope you are having an awesome time at BEA!

  • Cheers to another great month!

  • Sounds like you had a busy month! Totally jealous on you attending BEA :)
