May In Review

May in Review

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. . .”also known as the month I am glad is over!

If you missed my icky graphic post on why I believe May was no fun then you’ll want to read We Interrupt Our Regularly-Scheduled Program to Bring You This Important Announcement

That important announcement really messed with my blogging mojo, amongst everything else. . .but, whew! it’s over.  Not a lot of reading nor blogging done in May, but over Memorial Day weekend I was able to read all 4 of M. J. Arlidge’s Detective Helen Grace series! I feel drunk on reading – ever have that feeling?!?

Books Read in May

The Helen Grace series by M.J. Arlidge including:

  • Eeny Meeny (#1)
  • Pop Goes the Weasel (#2)
  • The Doll’s House (#3)
  • Liar Liar (#4)

My review for Eeny Meeny and Pop Goes the Weasel will be up tomorrow while The Doll’s House and Liar Liar will be reviewed on June 7th {release day in the U.S. for Liar Liar}

Also read

  • Flight Patterns by Karen White {reviewed here}
  • The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett {reviewed here}
  • The Innocents by Ace Atkins

What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. ~ J.D. Salinger
