May Books Roundup

I read quite a bit but doing one book review a month means that I don't get to reviewing all of the books that I do read. When this happens, I plan on doing a mini review of all the books I do read this month starting today:

  • Brooklyn on Fire: I actually did manage a review for this particular book that I received from Blogging for Books. As I'm sure you'll recall, I didn't much enjoy this book. It's historical fiction and if you're into the that particular genre, you may want to check it out for yourself if you don't want to take my word for it. 
  • Anansi Boys: I am a new-ish Neil Gaiman fan since reading and watching Stardust and American Gods. Anansi Boys is a sequel of sorts to American Gods, though it was written before American Gods. It's interesting because the tone of Anansi Boys was so different from American Gods and I didn't expect that! It's laugh out loud funny and an absolutely entertaining read. I think I will do an extensive review on this book as well. 
  • Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: This was actually a re-read (I read it for the first time when I was 11). I'd been meaning to do a Harry Potter binge read and I'm so glad I did! It's like falling in love with the series all over again!
Do you guys have any book recommendations for me for June?

  1. I love re-reading a book after it's been a long time and falling in love with the story + characters all over again!

  2. Dear Deborah, I have to admit I never ever read a Harry Potter book although I do read - like you - quite a lot :) And I could imagine I neither would have liked the first book as I don't like historical fiction ... thanks for your honest reviews!

  4. OH you've just reminded me I need to get to reading the Harry Potter series again! I preorded the new books so I need to re-read the series to have everything fresh in my mind :) I'm currently still working my way through Jenny Lawson's furiously happy book, it's taking a while to get through only because my boys don't give me a lot of quiet time, haha!
