What I’ve Been Reading – May, 2016

All right, all right, all riiiiight! This is more like it, y’all. I’m ramping up the reading, and managed to crank through twelve books in May. Still not up to my usual count, but still plenty enough to keep me occupied and always thinking. Let’s take a look at the list:

As you can see, while I did continue with the Outlander series, I took a little breather before I read the last (for now) book in the series. I definitely found some great reads during that time, so I’m certainly glad I made that choice! Out of all of the books I read in May, however, I have to say that the one that stood out the most was Sue Klebold’s memoir, A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy. If you are a parent, teacher, or any other person who in some way is connected to youth: if you read only one book this year, this should be it. Sue’s frank discussion of brain health and brain illness, and the frightening revelation that the ones we love the most aren’t always who we see them as, nearly dropped me. To. The. Floor. Other good reads worth mentioning include Everyone Brave is Forgiven, All Things Cease to Appear, Night Shift, and Juliet Takes a Breath. All four of these are definitely great for summer reading picks! I can’t wait to get started on my haul for June – have I got some doozies waiting for me! Hope the rest of you have some good ones to look forward to, as well. Happy Reading!!

What books are you kicking the summer off with, y’all?
