May 2019 wrap up

It is time again for another monthly wrap up with the books that I read in May. 

This month I decided / challenged myself to read only ebooks because my ebooks TBR is getting bigger and bigger every day and I also had some ARCs to get through.

So here we are today with the books I managed to read.

Saga Vol. 5 & 6 - Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples

I read two more volumes of Saga and I think that as the story progresses I liked it even more and I want to know what will happen next.

Ever Alice  - H. J. Ramsay

This is as you can imagine, a retelling of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland but set when Alice is 15 years old and she visits again Wonderland but this time with a purpose. 
It feels like a sequel of the original and I really liked it. 

I will also have a more detailed review soon.
This book comes out on August 1st by Red Rogue Press and I was sent a eARC from Netgalley for review.

For the Love of Books - Graham Tarrant

This is a kind of book that I love to read and this one was no exception. It talks about books, authors and literature in general. 

I will also have a more detailed review soon.
This book comes out on June 18th by Skyhorse and I was sent a eARC from Netgalley for review.

Killers of the Flower Moon - David Grann

Before reading this book I haven't heard about the Osage Murders in America. This book gave me the opportunity to learn about it. It is well written and well researched by the author.
Through the Water Curtain & other Tales from around the world - Cornelia Funke

I really liked this collection of fairy tales from around the world. It is difficult to pick a favorite among them.
Winnie - the - Pooh: Eeyore Loses a Tail - A. A Milne

Eeyore is my favorite from the Pooh stories and this one was beautiful and very sweet.
Shadow of the Fox  - Julie Kagawa

I started this book a few months ago and I wasn't in the mood for it. This month I picked it up again and I really liked it.
The story-line and the world-building is very well done and I cannot wait for the next one to come out.

Goldeneye - John Gardner

I enjoyed reading this one and because I have already seen the film (the book is a novelization of the film) I could play the scenes in my mind while reading it.

So here we are at the end of my wrap up for another month. This month I wanted to read only ebooks and ARCs and I managed to do it (I have only one ARC left).
The next months would be very different & exciting for me so I don't know how my reading will go. We will see...

  1. I have been thinking about starting the Saga series. Hoopla has them all to borrow, so it's very enticing! I love Cornelia Funke! The Eeyore book is lovely. Happy reading. I hope June has been a good month for you so far. 👍✨
