May has been a busy and exciting month. I’m done with classes for the summer, which gives me a bit more time to read. It’s been nice not to have due dates and assignments. I went camping last weekend with my family in Pennsylvania, which was a very relaxing way to spend Memorial Day weekend.
I’ve been participating in a lot of groupreads this month:
- “Mistborn: The Final Empire” by Brandon Sanderson
- “Red Seas Under Red Skies” by Scott Lynch (spoiler-free review forthcoming)
- “Neverwhere” by Neil Gaiman
- “Warbreaker” by Brandon Sanderson
As much as I love groupreads, this past weekend I was doing three at once, and I think that’s a bit excessive. From now on I’m going to try to keep it to no more than two at a time. After we’re done with “Neverwhere” we’re going to be reading the next book in the Mistborn series, and I’ll post more details on that as soon as I find out more.
In addition to the groupreads, I read six other books:
- “Roadside Picnic” by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky
- “Singer From the Sea” by Sheri S. Tepper
- “Seraphina” by Rachel Hartman
- “The Court of the Air” by Stephen Hunt
- “Kindred” by Octavia Butler
- “Tell a Thousand Lies” by Rasana Atreya
During the first week of June I’ll be attending Book Expo America at the Javits Center in NYC. I’m looking forward to the conference and even had business cards printed for my blog. I’ll be posting Twitter updates throughout the week, but I haven’t decided whether to post about the conference while I’m there or to wait until the week after. I have no idea what to expect and would welcome any advice from people who have been there before.
Next month I’m also planning to post about my new adventures with graphic novels/comics. My other reading plans involve some ARCs that I’ve received and whittling down my ever-increasing TBR pile.
How has everyone’s month been going? Anything exciting coming up in June?
