I got my reading mojo back last month and went on a nice wild reading ride. I got to go to fantastic places like Italy, Canada, New York, Ireland and England. I got to travel back and forward in time. I also met some supernatural people in the way. I also witnessed people falling in love but most of all I saw people overcoming adversity in different interesting ways. If that is not a wild ride I don't know what it is.


I'm surprised I managed to squeeze so much reading time despite my life getting in the way! ha ha ha


I'm so proud of myself. I have managed to read 3 to 4 books a month in the past. But this month I broke the personal record and managed to read/finish 6 books. I know that might not be too much for some but for someone who recently got her reading habit back on track that feels like a victory.


What I need now is time to get to actually review my reads. I Can Do It. I know I will.


I haven't found THE book that will change my life yet. I know it's out there. In the meantime:


  • May's Book: The Chase, fun action packed read.
  • May's Cover: The Here and Now, I like the color palette and the art a lot.
  • May's Fail: City of Ashes, I want to like these books but it's getting hard to do it.
  • May's Score: 3.2 (average rating this month)


Till next month, keep reading!

Till next month, happy reading BookLikers!
