I was very nearly tempted to not worry about doing my May wrap up post until the end of June, but I think I am glad that I changed my mind because I looked at this list of the books that I have read and found myself thinking was it really only 6 or so weeks ago that I read some of these books? Feels like much longer!
Here are the books I read in May:
Russian Winter by Daphne Kalotay 4.5/5
Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie 4.5/5
Yellowcake by Margo Lanagan 4.5/5
Little Paradise by Gabrielle Wang 4/5
Bumped by Megan McCafferty 4/5
Love and Romanpunk by Tansy Rayner Roberts 4.5/5
Emily by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles 4.5/5
The Vampire Narcise by Colleen Gleason 4/5
The Midnight Palace by Carlos Ruiz Zafon 3/5
Nightsiders by Sue Isle 4/5
Angelique in Love by Sergeanne Golon 4.5/5
The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley 5/5
The Dark Enquiry by Deanna Raybourn 4.5/5
The Homecoming by JoAnn Ross 3.5/5
In terms of the challenges that I am participating in Yellowcake, Little Paradise, Nightsiders and Love and Romanpunk are all by Australian authors and I have therefore now completed the Aussie Author Challenge for this year.
Little Paradise, Russian Winter, Emily and The Dark Enquiry all are books that I have read for the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge. I now have 7 books left to read in order to reach my commitment level for this challenge.
Yellowcake, The Rose Garden, Love and Romanpunk and Nightsiders all qualified for Once Upon a Time V so that challenge is now complete too!
