Required Reading: May

Altogether now: where did April go?

As I mentioned in my other non-review posts in the past months, April has been another slow reading month, but looking back, it’s actually quite a good month for reading! Yes, I was terribly slow (still 9 books behind in my Goodreads challenge — soon to be 10 this week!), but it’s still all good.

So April, April. I was able to finish the two books I listed in my Required Reaching challenge in two days. I didn’t cheat, but of course we have to remember the fact that I read them during Holy Week break, and they were children’s books. But hey, whatever genre they are, they are still books. :P So recap!

I also finished my second classic for the year, Jane Eyre. I still haven’t finished Mother Teresa’s book, but I promise, I will finish it this year.

Required Reading: May

I don’t know about you, but for some reason, I feel like May is a long month. I don’t know why, exactly, but I’m going to make the most out of this by delving into a genre that I only learned to love two years ago: fantasy.

Okay, the real reason why I am going to read fantasy this month because our book club will read The Fellowship of the Ring on June, and I am even more intimidated by this book than I was with Jane Eyre.  To get my mind to read one of the fantasy books of all fantasy books, I will read some fantasy books starting now. :)

  1. Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier – heard really good reviews about this book from book blogger friends, so I’m looking forward to reading this. :)
  2. Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews – it’s been on my TBR for too long, and I need some Ilona Andrews fix.

I was supposed to add The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley in this list, but I’m putting that in reserve for now since I also just decided to bring Game of Thrones by George RR Martin on my beach trip next week. :D

I actually just got started with my fantasy stint — currently reading Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson, and my mind is definitely ready. :) Let the magical month begin!
