May 2015 Reading Round-Up

I was rather surprised both that it’s June already and that I read the Vetsch in May – it seems ages ago. Anyway, I’ve had a great month and whilst I’m still having trouble with writing inspiration I believe it’ll get better. And I’ve exciting news for you that I’ll be posting about later in June. Yes: it’s book related (and some of you may already know…)

All books are works of fiction.

The Books

Book cover

Eloisa James: Duchess By Night – Harriet dresses as a man to accompany Isidore to a notorious house party, the intent being to lure Isidore’s husband home. Hilarious as always (the romance is pretty stellar, too, but I think you all know I read these books for the humour).

Book cover

Erica Vetsch: The Cactus Creek Challenge – Western America; two girls and two guys swap jobs for a month to win votes for various town needs. Christian romance; one relationship is better written than the other but the book as a whole is quite fun.

Book cover

Intisar Khanani: Sunbolt – On the run from the puppeteers behind the government. A diverse quasi-Asian/Eastern fantasy that’s brilliantly written and thrilling on occasion, but lacks a full plot.

Book cover

Kate Chopin: The Awakening – A wife and mother in 1800s America pushes against the social traditions that restrict her life. Absolutely excellent.

My favourite? The Awakening. It had to be; one of the best books of its era I’ve read. And that ending… No bad books this month. (Incidentally I’ve started The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society – have I got that right? – and loving it.)

Quotation Report

None this time.

Here we go, on to June…

What was your favourite read this month?

Looks like you had a great month of reading, pleased to see you still have your reading mojo back. I have read another good mix of books in May. My favourite was The Storyteller and Her Sisters Cheryl Mahoney. Happy reading in June!

I couldn’t tell at all that writing inspiration was failing you, you’ve been posting some very interesting topics.

Looks like you’ve had a lovely May of reading. Looking forward to the news! :)
