June! I'm looking forward to June cause some good things are happening. Let's see how I got on with May.

In May I read

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (reread)
She Is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick
Osbert the Avenger by Christopher William Hill
Maleficent Seven by Derek Landy
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

Favourite Book of May
So, this will come as a shock to those of you who know me well...not only did I read an adult book in May but it was my favourite book of the month! Life After Life by Kate Atkinson is magical and moving and just all round wonderful. Thoroughly recommend it.

Books acquired in May
So after a pretty good April...May went a bit insane again. I seem to be doing one month on, one month off when it comes to book buying!

Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

The Night Watch by Sarah Waters

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Season to Taste by Natalie Young

Most excited for in June
I am most excited for the release of Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens! I have already read this, but I cannot wait to get my little fingers on a finished copy and also go to the launch party! Robin Stevens is such a lovely and cool person so I'm so happy that her incredible book will finally be out in the world. You can read my interview with Robin Stevens here

Thoughts on May:
Pretty happy with May! I read a lot of middle grade, a couple of adult books (including a literary fiction, gasp) and put to bed a series I've loved since before I started blogging. I also watched Make It Or Break It on Netflix which I LOVED and Orange is the New Black which is super amazing; cannot wait for S2 on Friday!

How was your May?


  1. Oh my God, I love Make It or Break It! I watched it every Saturday morning for the last year and a half or something on E4 :D Anyway, books - very well done on your reading Cait, hope it continues into June :)

  2. I *am* shocked (and incredibly happy) that your favourite book was an adult book... I think you've been converted. I've added it to my wishlist.

    And those Pelican books are thicker than I thought they'd be!
