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!


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 😉 )


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!


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?
