May Wrap-Up

I think I've made a new record for myself, since I counted 19 books read in May! Some of them were novellas, but I didn't count the shortest one, In Morningstar's Shadow: Dominion of the Fallen Stories by Aliette de Bodard since it was just too short. I have the booklikes-opoly game to thank. I'd say I had a pretty good month of reads too, since I rated 6 of them 4.5 or 5 stars. Of course, all of the 5-star books were rereads.
