Books Read May 2019: 118-133

Pictured: 5 star reads, and yes that's ironic. Or fitting.

This month was a strange reading month, where I DNF'd 6 books that I'd had over my head (most of them ARCs, one library book) and stalling my reading in other ways for too long. And even some of the books I finished were disappointing, lackluster at times. I only read 16 total, but the two I gave five stars were books I read slowly along with people. Hmm, there may be something to that

120. Sightseeing by Rattawut Lapcharoensap **** (personal copy; my review)
121. The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker **** (library copy; my review)
122. Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid **** (personal copy audiobook; my review)
