most of this month's books came from the Recently Added shelf at the local library. You guys know the story; you go in to pick up a couple of books from the waiting list, and you find a few more you can't leave without. I ended up with thirty. Didn't get them all read but made a good stab at it.
I'm only going to talk about the ones which rated four or more stars. There were still plenty of them.
every one of these is a new--to-me author, and I will be looking for further works by each of them.
Jo Walton's The Just City and Ian Tregillis' The Mechanical are each the beginning of a series and I will be purchasing both of these plus the subsequent volumes for my own library.
i talked about these in another post, but I'm going to go ahead and show you my favorite Historical Fictions of the month:
and Kindle Unlimiteds:
i read 24 books this month and 17 of them were 4 stars or more for a percentage of 82%. Really High. I know.
but for the months prior to May, the percentage of four to five star reads was 32%. The book gods were smiling on me. Hope they stick around awhile.
