Monthly Reading Mews (May Wrap-Up) & What Should I Read Next? (June's My TBR List Poll)

I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted by the wonderful Kim of Caffeinated Book Reviewer, where participants recap our week, talk about what we are reading, share any new books that have come our way, and whatever else we want to talk about. As well as Stacking the Shelves hosted by the great Team Tynga's Reviews, a meme in which participants share what new books came their way recently.


What I Am Reading/Listening to Now: I don't often have more than one book going at once, unless it is an audiobook and a print/e-book. Right now I find myself having started four:
  • I Want My Epidural Back: Adventures in Mediocre Parenting by Karen Alpert - which I can only read in small doses.
  • Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie - recommended by my husband.
  • Girl in Disguise by Greer Macallister - I am listening to this one in audio and have about three hours left to go.
  • Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum - a book long on my TBR shelf I am finally dusting off to read for a read-along hosted by Serena (Savvy Verse & Wit) and Anna (Diary of an Eccentric) over at the War Through the Generations Challenges blog this month. 


May In Review: I had high hopes to read more in May, but it evidently was meant to be an average reading month. I am still wondering where all my reading time went to. I was home for nearly a week from work with strep throat this past month, and focusing on a book was impossible. I couldn't read with Mouse for about a week and a half. I ended up binge watching Supernatural in between naps. I also dedicated more time to blog prep, catching up on my review writing and scheduling posts for the upcoming summer. So, I guess in between that, work, and family life, I do know where all my reading time went after all . . . Hopefully June will be better.

Solely For Me:
  • LaRose by Louise Erdrich
  • Planetfall by Emma Newman
  • Radio Girls by Sarah Jane-Stratford
  • Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary-Robinette Kowal
  • The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes (Audio)

Some of the Books I Read With My Daughter in May (many of which we read over and over and over again. And then again):
  • Mom, There's a Bear at the Door by Sabine Lipan & Manuela Olten
  • Fancy Nancy and the Mean Girl by Jane O'Connor, Robin Preiss Glasser & Ted Enik
  • How Rocket Learned to Read by Tad Hills
  • Rocket Writes a Story by Tad Hills
  • Fancy Nancy: Fancy Day in Room 1-A by Jane O'Connor, Robin Preiss Glasser & Ted Enik
  • Froggy Bakes a Cake by Jonathan London & Frank Remkiewicz
  • Olivia Helps with Christmas by Ian Falconer
  • One by Kathryn Otoshi
  • It's Mine! by Leo Lionni
  • Biscuit Goes to School by Alyssa Satin Capucilli & Pat Schories
  • The Dark by Lemony Snicket & Jon Klassen
  • Lexie the Word Wrangler by Rebecca Van Slyke & Jessie Hartland
  • Beautiful Bananas by Elizabeth Laird, Liz Pichon
  • Chalk by Bill Thomson
  • Scary Party by Sue Hendra
  • Wave by Suzy Lee
  • Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin & James Dean
  • What's Inside? Neighborhood by by DwellStudio
  • Rosie Revere, Engineer by Andrea Beaty & David Roberts

My Favorite Book Read in May: How to choose?! Radio Girls was so much fun to read and brought out the researcher in me. In many ways, I think it was my favorite. But Erdrich's LaRose was such a beautiful and touching story. For different reasons, I think of it as a favorite this past month too.

Mouse's Favorite Book Read in May: Mouse loved making up her own stories to the illustration-only books, Chalk and Wave, this month. Her favorite though was Lexie the Word Wrangler, which I think spoke to the reader and budding writer in her. We read the book multiple times during its two week visit with us from the library.

Non-Book Review Posts in May:

New To My Shelves:

June's My Lit Box arrived recently much to my excitement. May's theme was "Growing Pains" and was filled with a number of goodies, including a tote, magnet and two books.


 Sunday Sugar by Q. Gibson & It's Not Like It's a Secret by Misa Sugiura

I also purchased a couple of used copies of Nancy Holzner urban fantasy novels that caught my attention recently:



Deadtown Hellforged

I bought one e-book this past week:


 Ancillary Justice (Imperial Radch #1) by Ann Leckie


Have you read any of these? What new books did you add to your shelves this week?

Thank you for helping me decide what book from my TBR collection I should read next:


My TBR List is a meme hosted by the awesome Michelle at Because Reading. It’s a fun way to choose a book from your TBR pile to read. The 1st Saturday of every month, I will list 3 books I am considering reading and take a poll as to which you think I should read. I will read the winner that month, and my review will follow (unfortunately, not likely in the same month, but eventually--that's all I can promise).




For the next couple or so months you might notice a theme in my poll reading choices. While last month the theme was historical fiction, this month it is mysteries. In both cases, all books had the word "girl" or "girls" in the title.  I'm determined to work my way through all my girl-titled books! Which do you think I should read next? Thank you for voting!


Dead Girl Walking by Christopher Brookmyre ~ Journalist Jack Parlabane will do anything to rebuild his reputation and put the past behind him. Finding musician Heike Gunn may be his last chance. She's disappeared and everywhere Parlabane looks he finds more secrets and unanswered questions.



The Lost Girls of Rome by Donato Carrisi, Howard Curtis (translator) ~ A forensic analyst with the Rome police recently lost her husband. The authorities believe it was a suicide, but his wife isn't convinced. She begins her own investigation into his death, which leads her into dangerous territory, including a possible centuries-old secret society.



Girl in the Dark by Marion Pauw, Hester Velmans (translator) ~ A mother and lawyer is struggling to deal with issues with her own son, when she discovers she has a brother she never knew about. Digging for the truth, she discovers her brother is autistic and in a hospital for the criminally insane. He was accused of murdering a neighbor and her daughter. Could he really have committed the crime he is accused of? She isn't so sure.





I hope you all have a great weekend and upcoming week! Happy Reading!

  1. I'm sure strep throat set you back - that is one nasty germ. May wasn't a great reading month for me either because we've had so much going on and I've been in and out of town. I don't think things are going to settle down for a while.

    1. Kathy - This was the first time I ever remember having strep throat, and it took me by complete surprise. I put off going to the doctor at first because I was so sure it was just a bad cold or the flu. Luckily, no one else in the house came down with it. That seems like some sort of miracle, considering how contagious it is!

      I hope you are able to find some down time in all the busy-ness that's taken over your life right now, Kathy.

      Have a wonderful week, and thanks for visiting!

  2. Strep is nasty! Hope you're feeling better! I'm interested in Ancillary Justice as well, it's just popping up all over my world, so I may have to give it and read it! For your TBR List I choose Dead Girl Walking, for the music aspect and the cover. I liked the Lost Girls of Rome cover and an old secret society was tempting, but in the end, I'm going with Dead Girl Walking. Enjoy!

    1. Shaunesay - It was horrible. I am feeling much better now, thank you. I don't read a lot of science fiction (although I am trying to change that), and Ancillary Justice is definitely a step into the deep end--at least from what I am used to. I am enjoying it so far. I know it's gotten mixed reviews.

      Thank you for voting! Dead Girl Walking does sound good. I really have no favorites this month. All my choices sound good to me. :-)

      I hope you have a great week, Shaunesay. Thank you for stopping by!

  3. Although all three sound interesting, I'm choosing Dead Girl Walking because I've enjoyed the books I've read by Brookmyre. I've only read one of the Jack Parlabane series, but promised myself I'd pick up the earlier books in the series. :)

  5. The Lost Girls of Rome got my vote though it was a tough choice between that one and Girl in the Dark. So sorry to hear about the strep throat. I've never been one who can read while really sick. At best I stare blankly at TV. Love all the books you're reading with Mouse! We're big Pete the Cat fans around here!

    1. Katherine - Thank you. I am such a baby when it comes to sore throats as it is, and that one was killer. Not to mention the other symptoms I had no idea came with strep. I am so glad that experience is behind me.

      Mouse really enjoys the Pete the Cat books, especially now that she's recognizing more and more words. Her favorite to read to me though are the Biscuit books. :-)

      Thank you for voting! I am not sure which one I would like to win. I think I will be happy with any of them.

      Have a great week, and thank you for stopping by, Katherine!

  6. I went with Dead Girl Walking.

    Mouse read so many good books! My little hasn't been reading so much lately so I feel like a trip to the library is needed. I also love the title of "I want my epidural back".

    1. Tina - Thank you for voting! I don't think I can go wrong with any of the choices--at least, I hope not. Haha

      I am enjoying I Want My Epidural Back, although the humor is a tad darker than is comfortable for long.

      I am hoping we can keep up the reading with summer coming. Luckily, it doesn't take much to convince Mouse to read with me, although she's still so hesitant about her own actual reading. Practice will bring confidence, I am sure.

      Thank you for visiting, Tina! I hope you have a great week.

  7. Don't feel bad, my May was kinda lackluster for reading too. :) And yup- maybe June will be better lol. Glad to hear Radio Girls was good- I've seen that one on a few blogs. yay for new urban fantasy- I need to read more of that.

  9. My May didn't go quiet as planned either. Having strep is terrible though. Glad you're on the mend. Ohh you read LaRose. I have it but haven't read it yet. I've enjoyed other books of hers too. Hope you have a better June.

    1. Christy - Maybe June will be better for both of us! Thank you for the well wishes. Every hint of a sore throat now, I feel panicked because I worry the strep is coming back. Luckily, it usually turns out to be my allergies

      LaRose was my first by Erdrich, but now I definitely want to read more by her.

  20. Sorry to hear you were so ill this month and yet couldn't get more reading in :( I've been dealing with severe sinus headache lately and it keeps me from reading more because keeping my head down hurts!

    I love that you read such an eclectic mix of books! From kids' to UF to literary, such diverse picks. Main reason I love to follow your blog!

    I read The Round House by Erdrich but haven't read LaRose. Many readers were disappointed by her books, find them slow, but I think sometimes that is the beauty of a story, to soak up the atmosphere and the author's mood. Enjoy your week!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Rita - Thank you. I am so sorry you have been dealing with health issues as well. Sinus headaches are no joke. They can be quite painful, I know. I hope you are feeling better.

      Sometimes I wish I had more of a reading niche, but I think I would get bored too easily if I read the same types of books all the time.

      LaRose had its slow moments, but I still liked it quite a bit. I think some books are meant to make you slow down to read them. It's easy in today's day and age to want to rush through everything. I fall into that trap all too often, I'm afraid.

      I hope you have a great week too! Thank you visiting.

  21. Strep throat is sufficient to knock you back such that reading seems more of a chore. I have voted for the Christopher Brookmyre - it certainly won't be dull... I am impressed with just how much you read with Mouse - brilliant! She may or may not grow up to be a reader (sadly neither of my two are particularly book minded, even though I read constantly to them when they were little) BUT she will always be very comfortable around books.

  27. Hi- Glad you are feeling better now, it's always terrible to be too sick to read.
    My reading so far this year has not added up to many reads. In May I listened to Archer's Quest by Linda Sue Park and I started Kira Kira by Cynthia Kadohata. I added 4 books to my library (3 of them I found at Salvation Army): Cat vs. Cat by Pam Johnson-Bennett, Son of the Black Stallion by Walter Farley, Thereby Hangs a Tail by Spencer Quinn, and Bush Craft 101 by Dave Canterbury.

    Does Mouse ever read to the cats? I know lots of libraries have dogs available that kids read to and I think a cat would be good too.

    I voted for Dead Girl Walking. I checked for the author on Bridges/Wilbor but couldn't find anything by him there.

    Have a great week!

    1. Carla - Thank you! I wouldn't wish strep on anyone. How are you liking Kira Kira? It sounds like it would be interesting. I hope you enjoy your new books!

      Mouse doesn't read to the cats, I'm afraid. I've suggested to her that Parker especially might enjoy it, especially a tale about Pete or Biscuit, but she says she'd rather read to me or her dad. Maybe someday she'll read to our cats. :-)
