Reading Wrap Up May 2016!

Hi lovelies,

Today I would like to share with you what I read in the month of May.

May was a really strange month, I went on honeymoon and had planned to read tonnes, but decided to stick to audiobooks which took some time. I then just didn't feel like reading novels so I've been reading a lot of comic books and listening to even more audiobooks.

However I still managed to read a total of 11 items which was pretty good, and it was a real variety of a month with;

4 comic books
1 physical book
1 e-book (which was a short story!)
5 audiobooks

and in terms of genre I read dystopian, science-fiction, thrillers, crime, classics, superhero, adult and YA contemporary, non-fiction and fantasy so I'm feeling pretty good about it.

So here's the full breakdown...



Heartless (Parasol Protectorate #4) by Gail Carriger* - 4/5 - urban fantasy
Bonkers by Jennifer Sauders* - 4/5 - non-fiction autobiography
Career of Evil by "Robert Galbraith" - 4/5 - crime/thriller
Mind the Gap Volume 3 - Out of Bodies by Jim McCann - 4/5 - sci-fi
Timeless (Parasol Protectorate #5) by Gail Carriger*  - 3/5 - urban fantasy
Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell** - 3/5 -  YA contemporary
All-New, All-Different Avengers Volume 1 - The Magnificent Seven by Mark Waid - 4/5 - superhero
The Beauty Volume 1 by Jeremy Haun - 4/5 - dystopian
Paper Girls Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan - 3.5/5 - dystopian/sci-fi
Landline by Rainbow Rowell* - 2.5/5 - adult contemporary
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen* - 4/5 - classic

*listened to on audiobook
**read in e-book format

My favourite read this month was...

The Beauty Volume 1 by Jeremy Haun which I was not expecting at all! I'm not going to talk about it much here as I'm planning on doing a full review, but who knew beauty as an STD could be so interesting!

My least favourite read this month was...

definitely Landline by Rainbow Rowell. I keep trying to like Rainbow Rowell because I actually do enjoy her writing style but this was just really depressing and it was NOT supposed to be! The relationship that you're supposed to be rooting for is (in my opinion) totally toxic.

My most surprisingly good read this month was... 

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen! This was the first classic (non modern classsic anyway) that I have managed to read beginning to end and I really enjoyed it! Rosemund Pike read this in the audiobook version and she was FANTASTIC. If they remake it for TV or film (again) she must be in it!
