Ha - May was the crappiest reading month in a long while. New house - with DIY and gardening duties disrupting me no end. At least a lot of the jobs accomplished are one time only thingies - so I remain optimistic that June sees some natural order returning to my favourite leisure activity.
3 books read in the month, though 4 on the go are simultaneously - nearly finished, almost finished, barely started and about halfway.
No 5 STAR read in the month, but if I had to choose one to read again it would be Ian Ayris and One Day in the Life of Jason Dean
The three were.....
Ian Ayris - One Day in the Life of Jason Dean (2012) (4.5)
Nanci Rathbun - Cash Kills (2014) (3)
Chris Roy - Her Name is Mercie (2018) (4)
More trivia for my own amusement ....
3 reads from 3 different authors,
2 of the 3 were new-to-me authors, Chris Roy and Nanci Rathbun
Gender analysis - 2 male authors, 1 female
3 authors read, 1 is English, 2 hail from the US,
All 3 of the reads were fiction - 2 novels - maybe 1 novel and a novella and a collection of short stories.
All of the books were published in this decade ....1 from 2018, 1 from 2014, 1 from 2012 - a familiar cry - whatever happened to me reading older books?
One of the reads were pre-owned. The other two - one came from the author and one from a publicist, as part of a blog tour I signed up to.
Favourite cover? Chris Roy's Her Name is Mercie
Second favourite – One Day in the Life of Jason Dean from Ian Ayris
My reads were this long 108 - 261 - 164
Total page count = 533 (1022 in April)....... a near 500 page decrease
