Reading in Review: May
May was a little slow in the reading department, probably because real life got in the way. But that didn't hold me back too much, as I finished four novels, two of which were Pulitzers.
Books read: 4
Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín
Middlesex by Jeffery Eugenides
84, Charing Road by Helene Hanff
A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan (review coming soon)
Favorite May read: Middlesex
Normally I break down the stats of my monthly reading, but since it was a slower month I'll just say my May reading was largely American authors (save Tóibín) and not very diverse (all were white). I'm going to work on diversifying my June reading.
In a related not, I've got 30 days to finish the Classics Challenge, in which I have two books (of eight) left to read; Little Women (to satisfy the YA Classic) and a reread from college or high school, TBD. I'm confident I can finish on time, although I bought a slew or books in May that I am dying to open.
