May Books

I had a slower month than my past few with only 27 books, but I'm happy with that number since I had quite a few things that kept me from reading. My average score was 3.9 stars. No rereads this month. Instead, I got around to reading some books that I'd been meaning to for some time (The MartianA Wizard of Earthsea, Rebecca).


13 of my books were YA. 6 were graphic novels. My most read genres were fantasy, historical fiction, contemporary, and mystery.


My favorite books were A Day In The Life Of Marlon Bundo - Marlon Bundo,Jill Twiss,Richard ParsonsThe Martian - Andy WeirCirce - Madeline Miller, and Firebolt - Adrienne Woods. My least favorite Iceman Vol. 1: Thawing Out - Sina Grace,Alessandro Vitti.
