Happy Sunday! Because of Memorial Day Weekend, it definitely doesn’t feel like the end of the weekend, so we’ve got another day to go! I'm not complaining, since it promises to be 90 degrees out here tomorrow. The month is essentially over, so I figured I might as well do my reading wrap-up for May now. Here’s what I read:
How Did You Get This Number, by Sloane Crosley
Still Missing, by Beth Gutcheon
The Reckoning, by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles
The Tulip Virus, by Danielle Hermans
A London Child of the 1870s, by Molly Hughes
Legacy, by Susan Kay
Every Last One, by Anna Quindlen
The Circular Staircase, by Mary Roberts Rinehart
Airs Above the Ground, by Mary Stewart
Shadow Princess, by Indu Sundaresan
No Angel, by Penny Vincenzi
They Were Sisters by Dorothy Whipple
Flapper, by Joshua Zeitz
I read 13 books this month, so basically the same amount as last month. I read more nonfiction this month as well. My favorite books this month were easily They Were Sisters (Dorothy Whipple is always a sure thing with me) and Legacy, by Susan Kay. Sourcebooks is reprinting this next month and I’m glad to see it come back into print. This is easily one of the best fictional histories of Elizabeth I that I’ve ever read.
This weekend has been highly relaxing; I spent most of today sitting outside in this wonderful weather reading Airs Above the Ground. There’s something about warm weather that makes me want to read easy stuff like Mary Stewart’s books!
I’m actually between reads at the present moment! I’m thinking I may dive into one of my new Viragos next (Frost in May, perhaps?). I was looking at the books I have that are unread, and a part of me wants to read them all right now, but of course I have to pick and choose what order I read them in—otherwise I’d be overwhelmed by it all! Ever had indecision in deciding what to read next?
