I received (advanced) review copies of Wonder: The Julian Chapter, Model Position, Coin Heist, Face Time and Alternative Movie Posters: Film Art from the Underground c/o the publishers via Netgalley. I received Eric, the Boy Who Lost His Gravity c/o the publisher via Edelweiss. I received Yours Truly, Taddy c/o the publisher via Xpresso Book Tours.
Yes, really. I really read 25 books in the month of May.
And yes, I am aware there are 31 days in May.
Safe to say May has been the best reading month of my entire life. I don’t know what caused me to read so much all of a sudden, but I think it has to do with the amount of amazing books I read this month. I got quite a bit of books off Netgalley (along with Edelweiss and Xpresso Book Tours) this month and I still have more books off Netgalley I’ve yet to read. They’re taking me a while to read, namely because one of the books put me in a bit of a slump and I tried to read non-review books to de-stress. (Yikes, review books have started to stress me out! Too many, too much?)
I read a good variety of books this month and many were very compelling and some were certainly life changing. I read a lot of graphic novels this month and I’m absolutely loving it. Its really nice to look at pictures after a long day; they are so great for unwinding. Also, how addictive is the Saga series? I hasn’t expected to love them as much as I did. I’m planning to write reviews and/or mini reviews for the graphic novels I’ve read, depending if I have much to say about them. We’ll see.
I’m quite proud of how much I managed to read this month and also for having reviewed almost all of these books! It has been EXTREMELY crazy trying to keep track of what to read next. Yikes! I’ve somewhat recently started scheduling the books I need to read first — I never imagined I’d have to schedule what books I read next. I’m planning to take it easy in June, seeing how my first Uni assignment for the semester is coming up and I’ll be going on vacation somewhere in the middle of June.
I’ve got a lot in store for June, including some book blitz, promotional stuff and projects. Am constantly looking for new projects to participate in, so if you know of anything I should be participating in, do let me know!
