                                       May Wrap-Up

The month of May was a fair reading month for me.  I finished 8 books this month, with only one 
that I considered a real dud.  

The first book I finished was:

 The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey.  This is the second book of the 5th Wave trilogy.  I liked it pretty well, and really want to see how he ends this in the 
next book.  It did have some slow moments but overall it went pretty quickly.  I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.

This is a short novella about a breakthrough treatment for cancer.  It was really interesting, and seems like it has a lot of promise.
I gave this one 4 stars on Goodreads.

 This is 3.5 of the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.  I enjoyed getting Lavana's back story, and helped me see that even though she had a hard childhood she is inherently evil.  It made me hate her even more.  I gave this one 3 stars on Goodreads.

 Perfect Peace by Daniel Black is a compelling story of a woman that wanted a daughter so badly that she almost destroyed her whole family and drove herself to madness to get one.  This was my favorite book of the month.  I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads.

This is a sweet second chance Amish story of a widow looking for meaning in her life after losing her husband.  She has always been fascinated by the Amish lifestyle and tries to find herself in their community.   I gave this one 4 stars on Goodreads.

This was a story of a girl held captive by a coven of vampires.  I thought the story line was weak, and the characters not fleshed out.  When she is captured she just seems to accept the whole idea of vampires, and then the leader of the vampires just falls for her instantly, which really irritated me.  This is the first of a long series of books that I will most definitely NOT be continuing.  I gave this one 2 stars on Goodreads.

I already posted my review of this book, so I won't say much here about it, except it was not my favorite.  I gave this one 3 stars on 

For a prepper novel, this was not bad, but I wasn't crazy for it.  I may just be burned out on this genre.  The writing was pretty good, and believe me that is a major problem with this genre.  I will probably try more of this authors work in the future.  I gave this one  3 stars on Goodreads.

       Well, that was my month.  Not a bad one, but only one real stand out book.  I am doing well with my Goodreads goal of 75 books for the year, and should make it by August if my reading continues and the pace I am going now.  So far for June I've read 8 books and there is still a week to go, so hopefully I can squeeze in a couple of more books!
