May Wrap-up


Another month has sped by! I hope the coming months pass more slowly so we can savour summer!


Thanks to the Caffeinated Clean Sweep ARC Reading Challenge, I tackled some books that have been sitting for a long time on my review pile!

I finished 8 books this month! Here they are (CLICK ON THE THUMBNAILS TO SEE MY REVIEW):

4 stars

(A Savannah Reid Mystery, Book #17)


4 stars
The Girl on the Train
by Paula Hawkins


Wallbanger was definitely my stand-out favourite read of the month, followed by Nemesis! Wallbanger is hilarious, and I am surprised how much I enjoyed it given that I don't typically like contemporary romances. I really enjoyed the whole conspiracy angle of Nemesis. I will definitely continue on with both series.

I discovered seven new authors and four new series, and I read another book from a series previously started (Happily Never After).
