I read 22 things in May. This month my favorites were actually a couple of short stories that I read because they were Nebula Award nominees. Since they were short stories, I have 3.
Our Talons Can Crush Galaxies by Brooke Bolander
The City Born Great by N.K. Jemisin
Playing Nice With God’s BFavoowling Ball by N.K. Jemisin
The Wand in the Word by Leonard S. Marcus – This wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t very good either. My biggest complaint was the selection of authors interviewed. I will admit the authors were amazing in their own rights, and all are pretty well known. But they also had pretty much the same thing to say. I have read enough fantasy to know that there are quite a few authors with varied background to want more than this.
This was another good month.. I read a total of 18 books with 2 favorites and 1 very disappointing read.
Borderline by Mishell Baker
Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
I read 16 books this month, and honestly I enjoyed them all. Except one, and that one wasn’t bad, it was pretty middle of the road.
The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee
The Crown of Embers and The Bitter Kingdom by Rae Carson
I read 13 books, there were a couple of stand outs, but most of the reading was just ok.
Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova
Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows
When Love Matters Most by Kate James.
So far in September, I have finished 5 books ( these are books that I had started prior to the new month) and DNF’d 1. I am optimistic about this month because I am finishing up a few series that I have enjoyed tremendously and I am positive that the authors will not disappoint.
What have been some of yor favorite reads this summer?
