Monthly Rundown: May 2017

Posted June 3, 2017 by Bonnie in Monthly Rundown / 6 Comments

Books Read = 18

hahaha 18 accomplished once again!!! But just barely. There may have been a string of graphic novels read one weekend but eh, still counts. I didn’t realize how positively horrible I did at review writing though… 2? Ouch. So lots of reading, not a lot of writing. It happens.

Posted Reviews


Unreviewed Reads

A few of the other reads from May that I don’t plan on reviewing. The rest of the 18 should have reviews in June. We’ll see how that goes. haha

Best of the Month: Tender at the Bone: Growing Up at the Table by Ruth Reichl ★★★★★
I love my foodie fiction novels but I had yet to pick up Ruth Reichl. This was an absolute delight and reminded me much of Nora Ephron’s glorious writing style. Just with more food. I purchased Comfort Me with Apples: More Adventures at the Table this week and hope it’s just as good.

Least Favorite: Borderline (The Arcadia Project #1) by Mishell Baker ★★
I had heard some massively great things about this one and I splurged on the audible version and just could not get into the story at all. I really loved the less than typical main character but this one just didn’t do it for me for some reason.

Biggest Surprise: Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain ★★★★
I am only just now delving into the glories of Foodie Non-Fiction. Read my first Reichl this month and my first Bourdain. It was a good month.

Biggest Disappointment: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas ★★★½Book Review – A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas
Uggghhhhh I hate listing this but it’s true. I was disappointed. It wasn’t the worst but it definitely failed to live up to my (admittedly enormous) expectations. It is what it is.
