My reading this month can be split into two sections – before BEA and after BEA.
I read all of these by May 8. I left for BEA on May 10 and I was stalling. I didn’t want to start anything new when I was going to be surrounded by new books.
Then, I don’t know what happened. Sensory overload? I didn’t read anything during BEA. At night I just crashed in my apartment. When I got home the husband was gone for a week, I squandered that good reading time by binge watching Sense8. (Anyone else watch that show? Seriously amazing.)
Eventually my books (or my preciousessss as I was creepily calling them) arrived from Chicago and then I settled in and got started reading again. Here’s my after May 20 finishes.
The books I read this month are set in:
- U.S. – Ohio, New York, Georgia, Texas, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Indiana
- Fantasy lands
The authors are:
- 8 female and 3 male
- 9 white and 2 POC
The books are:
- 8 fiction and 3 nonfiction
- 5 fantasy
- 2 historical fantasy
- 2 romance/chick lit
- 1 audiobook
This month I’ve been lurking on Twitter around the #diversebookbloggers discussions. I’m pretty much the definition of who isn’t a diverse book blogger but I like finding new people to follow and hearing book recommendations. I did their Diverse Books Tag, which was a lot of fun.
I don’t have any big blog news coming up. Remember that the link for June’s Foodies Read is going up tomorrow. I got a lot of foodie books at BEA so now there are even more prizes.
Speaking of my BEA books, there are so many of them that I don’t want to keep them all after I read them. Periodically now you might see this graphic on reviews.
First come, first served I’ll send the ARC to a new home. I wouldn’t say no to a few dollars towards shipping fees but I want these books to circulate since they are meant to be for promotion.
