Books I read in May

Heartless by Gail Carriger
Lovely reread. Biffy and Lord Akeldama always make me sad.

Timeless by Gail Carriger
I noticed an "othering" of the Egyptian people that was disturbing this time around. I wonder if this will work itself out in the upcoming The Custard Protocol Series: 1 Prudence, that is to be released next March.

Requiem for Blood by Alexandra Hope
This story was a jumbled up mess. The beginning was so confusing. All I got was there was a colony of home-schooled wanna-be vamps who tried to survive on blood alone. The book was a free kindle, but it is no longer available as a kindle at all. I think I only finished about 12% of the book before giving up on the mess. This is the book that I had to take a break from, twice, and reread all the Gail Carriger books that I own.

Glimpse (Zellie Wells) by Stacey Wallace Benefiel
I only finished about 25% of this book. I felt like I was getting hit over the head with the main character's religion every few sentences. Also, after reading a quarter of the book the main story, the whole reason for the book, hadn't even begun.

Fairest: An Unfortunate Fairy Tale Book 2 by Chanda Hahn
This is the second in the series. The first, UnEnchanted, I read with my book club. The first had some really racist accents, that was toned down a little bit in this book. This book felt like nothing but a pity party for the main character.

Only 3 1/2 books this month! All I can say is that I've been busy.

Books read so far: 9 1/2 January plus 11 1/4 February plus 8 March plus 8 in April plus 3 1/2 in May equals 40 1/4 books so far this year. Work and school has slowed me down a little bit.

Currently watching:참 좋은 시절 (Wonderful Days). Still watching this, it is supposed to be a 50 episode series.

Currently reading:

Ever Shade (A Dark Faerie Tale #1)by Alexia Purdy
I'm only on the first chapter, so I can't really tell you anything about the book yet.

Upcoming books:
The Princess' Dragon Lord by Mandy Rosko
The Story Girl by L.M. (Lucy Maud) Montgomery
Phoenix Rising: A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Novel by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris
The Thirteenth Unicorn: Book One in the Ben Alderman Series by W.D. Newman

If you'd like to request that I review a book please leave a comment. Include a brief description of the book, including which genre it is. Please also note if the book is an ARC and whether you are self-published.

Swagbucks it is how I make money for amazon gift cards!
I made $10 in gift cards for the month of May. I've been busy with school and work, still, it'll probably continue like this for a while.
