What Are You Reading This May?

It’s that time again! Time to share what we’re all reading this month! I’m still going strong with my new adult kick, adding in some historical fiction and YA novels as well.  A complete list of what I’ve read for the year can be found here.  On the forefront for the rest of May? More new adult and some historical fiction.  I’m currently in the middle of reading Karina Halle’s Sins & Needles, the first book in her Artists Trilogy.  Following that I’m delving into Karen Witemeyer’s new novel Stealing the Preacher, which is slated for release June 1st.  And finally Some Quiet Place by Kelsey Sutton.  The plot of this last book fascinated me so much I couldn’t help but request it for review!

Ok, folks! I’m turning the tables on you. What are you all reading? Share in the comments below!

  1. I came across this in my reader and I am reading two books that I had to share. The first is Cloud Atlas and the second is Only Revolutions. They are both written in genre changing/meta-fiction style and the stories are interesting and engrossing. But then again, that is just my opinion.

    • I really liked Cloud Atlas. It was one of the most stylistically interesting books I’d read in ages, along with House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski, which was also a fantastic book that I can never recommend enough.

  2. Sins and Needles was amazing! I can’t wait till the next one comes out, although I did hear it was in dual point of view which could be annoying 🙂 hope you like it!

  3. Embracing the Elephant, a first novel by Lori Hart Beninger. Very good tale of Gold Rush California from a young girl’s perspective.

  4. Like three devotional books (those ones you read a small portion everyday, so I’ll probably spend more than this month reading them lol), An Experiment in Criticism by C. S. Lewis, just finished reading today Fate’s hand by Lis Wiehl. I’ll probably start another novel, I am not sure which yet though!

  5. I’m trying to vary things a bit this May. Lots of crime fiction is my usual, but I now intend to read ‘The Portable Door’ by Tom Holt, and to try to select some non-crime from my huge reading pile!

  6. Still on the Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy (I have a history of starting awesome books – way too late) & The Shallows. Once my thesis is finished, I may just get around to reading what’s left on my current list, including The Lost Symbol (yes, I’m a sucker for Dan Brown novels, can’t help it), Peter Camenzind & maybe Sea Wolf

  7. I’m reading ‘Mendoza in Hollywood’ at the moment, the third book in Kage Baker’s The Company science-fiction series. I’m really liking the series so far, and I can tell it’s building up to something amazing in later books. My only regret is the lack of Joseph in this book..
    I’ve also been reading Aaron’s Rod by D.H. Lawrence, but that’s slow going — I think I’m out of practice in reading classics, much to my shame.

  8. Im reading The French House at the minute. Its quite a a good read by Nick Alexander. one of those ones were you can relate to the characters a wee bit. Dont be fooled though because up to now its a typical chick flick but very good all the same.

  9. I’ve recently started reading ‘The Tenant of Wildfell Hall’ by Anne Bronte. I haven’t delved too deeply into the storyline yet, but I am looking forward to finding out more about the characters.

  10. Last one has real intresting premise. Like concept of listing books to read. But I somehow am not able to stick to it, so my listing goes haywire. Ur profile pic has real bookish charm 🙂

  11. Sins and Needles sounds fascinating. Right now I’m reading Burning Your Boats by Angela Carter and A Map of the Known World by Lisa Ann Sandell. I just finished The Romance of the Forest by Ann Radcliffe this morning; it was slow, but is was an interesting look back into the past.
