Welcome to another monthly wrap-up of my 2013 Goodreads Book Challenge! The month of May started out a bit slow since I was finishing up my Spring semester at school. I started off the month reading my last couple required books before moving right on to the stuff I’d been dying to really read all semester. This month included some nonfiction, some steamy New Adult reads, and The Great Gatsby in anticipation of seeing the summer blockbuster film. All in all it was a good month full of many different styles.
For those of you who missed my initial post on this topic, I have decided to embark on a most enjoyable challenge to read 52 books in 2013. I have chosen to participate in the Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge in which I select my own goal, and a book a week is what I came up with as truly doable this year. Each month I will give you an update on where I am in the challenge and what books I was lucky enough to indulge in. I’ll also include a link to Amazon.com for each book in case you would like to pick a read up for yourself.
In the month of May I have read six books and according to the graph on Goodreads, I am at 62% of my goal, which is eleven books (21%) ahead of schedule! Thanks to a very full semester of reading and cramming as many pleasure reads in as possible, I’m on track to surpass my goal for the year.
This month I read the following books. You may click on each one to see my review and purchase information.
This month I am back to school in the form of summer classes, so I’ll have a few required reads to complete. Other than that I have a huge to-be-read pile waiting for some much needed attention! Stay tuned throughout the month for more book reviews and I’ll be back at the end of the month with another update on my progress.
