May 2017 Wrap-Up & Favorites

This month was special because it was my 1-year blogiversary! So yes, I’m quite happy about that, but on the other hand, I was weak again and requested too many books on Netgalley and I even went back to Edelweiss. I know, I have no willpower whatsoever.

In a past life, I was probably a tortured police detective with a dark and traumatic past. Right now, however, I'm just a twenty-something bookworm who loves listening to old songs and watching 90s movies. I enjoy mystery and crime, southern coming of age stories and historical fiction set in the last century.

  1. Happy 1 year blogiversary! I’ve done the same with Netgalley and Edelweiss too, was trying SO HARD to catch up a bit but there are a lot of amazing books coming out soon. Lots which I haven’t requested too though, and i know I’ll regret it when I start seeing amazing reviews for them! Oh well 😀 great post x

  2. Looks like you read lots of great books in May! I’ve just added The Weight Of Feathers to my wishlist after your mention of it being a favorite. It sounds like such a good story! I’m reading The Breakdown soon as well and I’ve heard nothing but excellent things about both The Marsh King’s Daughter and Exquisite. Happy reading!

  3. Netgalley is the tool of the devil! 😂

    I’ve resisted the lure of Edelweiss so far. Was considering it yesterday but I’m drowning in blog tour duties so I shouldn’t really be requesting anything anywhere! Not sure how long I can wait though. 😉

  6. That’s so funny you’ve got Kiss Carlo, a good friend gave me a copy and I’d never heard of it or read any of her books so I was kind of thinking about filing it away but now I think we may have to read it together:)

    1. Ohh awesome! I saw a film based on one of her books and I liked that it was about an Italo-American family and it was kind of a saga, so I thought: I HAVE A MILLION TO READ; WHY NOT ONE MORE? haha

      Of course, let’s read it together!!!!!!

  7. Haha! Have you noticed you seem to be acquiring more books than you’re getting through? Just sayin’… 😉 I resisted the Michael Robotham because of review-book overload… I hope you don’t make me regret my decision… 😉

  8. Your blog is a teenager now 😀
    I so know what you mean! I was so sure I’d have nothing to do in June that I requested a lot of books and have aligned lots of blog tours… Now I have to read real fast!!
    I can’t wait to know what you think of Exquisite!
    Have a wonderful June, doll! xx
