MY READ OF THE MONTH

A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World by C. A. Fletcher has to be my choice for this month. What a great read. I loved every page and was sorry to reach the end, even though I found it tough to tear myself away from reading just one more chapter. Definitely one to consider if you’re in search of something good to read.

BEAT THE BACKLIST

My total for this challenge is currently 6 books read. I’ve really fallen behind on this challenge at the moment after receiving an influx in brand new library books, but I’d like to try and add at least a few more to this total. So far I’ve read:

The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding (Poirot #35) by Agatha Christie
The Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths
The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas
The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden
Taken at the Flood (Poirot #28) by Agatha Christie
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Poirot #4) by Agatha Christie

This year I’m having a go a something a little different – Beat the Backlist Bingo. I have no idea how many of these boxes I’ll manage to tick but it’s a little extra to add to my challenge.

 

Book with under 1000 Ratings on GoodReads – 830 for The Stranger Diaries at time of Completion.

Part of a trilogy – The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

New-to-me Author – Kate Mascarenhas with The Psychology of Time Travel

Cover with your Favourite Colour – Taken at the Flood (Poirot #28) by Agatha Christie

Title is a Name – In this case, the title contains the name – The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Poirot #4) by Agatha Christie

GOODREADS

So far this year I’ve read 15 books.

GOALS

  • I participated in Bout of Books. I always enjoy a good read-a-thon.
  • I’m keeping up with my monthly update posts to keep track of my reading.

So concludes May’s Reading Review. See you again next month
