May 2012 Reading Wrap Up!

So May is over! Way too fast, for it is my favorite month of the year. But June is okay, too, I guess. Although May was so sunny this year and it’s 5 hours until June and it is already raining like crazy.

I got a kindle this month and read four books on it already. I also read four physical books. Here they are!

Some of the books I read in May

Middle Grade:

Harper Madigan – Junior High Private Eye by Chelsea M. Campbell

Loved the setting, did not like the plot too much. Cute read though! Check out my review!

Young Adult:

Wither by Lauren DeStefano

I’m underwhelmed by this. It’s okay, the writing is quite good, but that’s all for me. The setting is a little too far fetched for me and I didn’t care for it too much. It got some great reviews from other people though. And I really love the cover too.

The Thirteenth by G.L. Twynham

I’m in love with this book. Really. SO awesome. Check out my review!

Bizarro:

Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland by Carlton Mellick III

A new found love – the Bizarro genre! I will for sure read more of this. Check out my review of this book here!

Science Fiction/Dystopian:

Animal Farm by George Orwell

I liked it! I think it is a good book to learn about the way suppressive regimes work.

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

I liked this quite a lot. Although it was a little hard for me to get through at times, for I’m not that into military strategy stuff. But I loved the ending! (Technically I finished this on June 1st, 2 am. Whatever. I hadn’t slept yet so for me it was still May 😉 )

Fantasy:

The Magicians’ Guild by Trudi Canavan

Loved this! Such a great read. Great setting, great plot. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series! Chek out my review!

Play:

No Exit by Jean-Paul Sartre

Loved it! Don’t know what so say about it though. Therefore probably no review.

Update on challenges:

For the Around the Stack in How Many Ways challenge, I read a play (No exit) , a crime book (Harper Madigan) and a book of the bizarro genre (Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland) this month!

What else went on here at The Book Hunter?

I participated in the Book Chat by Misty!

I introduced the On The Hunt feature, which will be about books that sound interesting to me and I want to read/buy! This time I talked about pirates!

Also I’m 5 books ahead in my reading challenge on goodreads! Awesome, right? Let’s dance the awesome-dance.

What did you read last month?
