I finished 16 books in May.  That’s a bit weird because it didn’t feel like a big reading month for me.  I guess that’s because a lot of these were romance books that read quickly.


The books I read were:

  • 2 nonfiction
  •  2 audiobooks
  • Set in the U.S., England,  and India

What were my favorites?
