Monthly Wrap-Up – May 2019

I should start with, May was a total disaster. Yep, 31 days gone just like that, a snap of my fingers. My read count was sadly low. I only read 8 books and I’m 15 books behind my Goodreads challenge. Oh, boy, I need to get my act together.

1-3 – Vicious, RuckusScandalous (Sinners of Saint, 1-3) by L.J. Shen

I read L.J. Shen’s book Scandalous back in January, I think and I liked it a lot. So when I saw Vicious on Netgalley, of course I requested it. Got approved for it too (which will never cease to surprise me). However, Vicious and Ruckus were both 2 stars for me. I just couldn’t like the main characters.

4. Audrey, Wait! – Robin Benway


Audrey, Wait! was a re-read for me, the 3rd time over the years and it was as witty and hilarious as the first time. I had a blast re-reading it.

5. A Vampire’s Christmas Carol – Cynthia Eden


This was a novella and a 2-star rating for me.

6. One of Us Is Lying (One of Us is Lying, #1) & 7. Two Can Keep a Secret
Karen McManus

A new author for me. I enjoyed One Of Us Is Lying a lot. Two Can Keep A Secret wasn’t as great as One Of Us Is Lying but it was a good book. (Does this sentence seem strange to you? With the titles of the books and all, I’ve been staring at this sentence for the past 10 minutes lol.)

8. Can’t Get Enough (Original Heartbreakers, #6) Gena Showalter


And a steamy, witty romance to round off May. I finally read a book by Gena Showalter. I have her YA series on my Kindle which I have yet to read but with Can’t Get Enough, I enjoyed her writing a lot. It was witty and fun and very entertaining.

New Blog Meme
I started a new blog meme, Whatcha Doin’ Wednesday, to celebrate Mental Health. It’s a simple meme designed to make you take a moment and assess your emotions and state of well-being. So often, we don’t stop to think how we are and taking that one moment, to just stop and think and breathe can change your outlook and maybe, improve it.

Well, that’s it for May, folks, 8 books in all and a teensy-eensy new blog meme.


I'm a die-hard bibliophile and I'm also an introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami.
