Reminder: I’m co-hosting a read-a-long of Alice Walker’s THE COLOR PURPLE in July. You’ll have a chance to sign up soon!
Books – 3 (538 pages)
- The Invention of Morel, by Adolfa Bioy Casares – 90 pages – very intriguing short story
- One Amazing Thing, by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni – 240 pages – somewhat disappointing
- Alone: Orphaned on the Ocean, by Richard Logan & Tere Duperrault Fassbender – 208 pages – fascinating story makes up for choppy writing
Audiobooks – 5 (37.4 hours)
- Remarkable Creatures, by Tracy Chevalier – 10.25 hours – my FAVORITE book of the year so far
- The Time In Between, by David Bergen – 8 hours – didn’t really like it
- The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, by Alexander McCall Smith – 8.25 hours – slower paced than the TV version
- The Invisible Man, by HG Wells – 6.2 hours – creepy and fascinating
- The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 1, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – 4.7 hours – not one of Doyle’s best
- I attended MY first ever Book Expo America in New York City, followed by THE first ever Book Blogger Convention. It was an amazing experience and I recommend saving your pennies now so you can attend next year. You can read about my experiences and check out the photos here.
- I highlighted two special bloggers: One Day At A Time, and My Two Blessings.
- Lucky me, I got to meet author Laurie R. King at a local library.
- AND my sister had her third son on May 29 – yay!
My month was pretty amazing in the “general life” department and rather pathetic in the bookish department, but I guess you can't win ‘em all! How was YOUR May?
