Wow, it’s another month gone. I did many things this month, but reading was not a priority. So busy…
I feel I should apologize to you for posting so little. I feel just a tiny bit guilty ;). mostly for not having some posts ready in advance to post them in times like these. I hope next month will be better. I do have some posts partially ready, like last week’s BBC and Funny Friday posts. I was almost done with them, but couldn’t finish on time so they’ll be polished and posted this week.
So what did I accomplish in May?
Not much, but I had some good time doing it 😀
- Finished 17 books: 5 novels, 2 short stories. April page count: lame 1650.
- I’ve finished 2 sets of jigsaws – 1000 and 1500 pieces. Well, ok I finished the ‘1000’ in a day and the second in about 3, so not a big time consumer, but damn satisfying and relaxing :D. Right now I have 4000 piece scene started on the table, this one:
- I had not much luck with my book choices this month, my average rating: 3,1 stars.
- I’ve missed the deadline on my Back to the future graphic novel – I’ve read about half and forgot the deadline’s coming… I really wanted to read it, it was a nice addition to the movies. I’ll find a way to read it whole.
- My Goodreads yearly challenge went down from 16+ books ahead of schedule to only 1…
- Witcher 3 is still an amazing game and the reason for this month’s lack of audio books among my reads…
- 7 books ended up on a DNF shelf, 1 of which I might pick up again thanks to some helpful comments 🙂
- I’ve read and started using a self-improvement book and it was surprisingly effective.
Favorite book of the month
It’s not a surprise, right? This book is fantastic! But I already wrote about it, so I’ll give it a rest already 😛

I’ve only left a mini-review on the blog, you can find it here: Wednesday update and short reviews
Actually, I wrote about this story in the same post as Illuminae. It was just not very good and I wonder why all the good reviews? Am I missing something here?
Maybe you’re read it and can tell me?
All the other stories I’ve read:
I’ve arranged them from worst to best, as usual – links lead to my review posts or to Goodreads page.
Currently reading / listening to:
Yea, I know I still haven’t finished Greeth. I really do like it, but I have a hard time just sitting down and reading pretty much anything. Have you seen my interview with the author?
Other than that one there are a few stories I’ve started, but I still haven’t decided whether to finish them now or maybe put down for later.
Working on reviews:
Here are some of the novels I should review soon:
the 3 on the left will most likely get one post and some short reviews. They are all cozy mysteries, some are good, some not.
