May wrap up 2017

There are the books I finished in the Month of May. One book is part of a book club read, and some of these are part of the 30 day challenge I participated with some Twitter friends.

  • The Fill-in Boyfriend by Kasie West: This was a book club read and I already posted my review. In case I forgot to rate it I found to be a 4/5 star read
  • Suicide Squad Vol 1: Kicked in the Teeth by Adam Glass: This was an interesting comic that definitely was a page turner. 4/5 star read.
  • Suicide Squad Vol 2: Basilisk Rising:   This one was alright. Like this first one it was a nice read. Different pace and different genre. 4/5 stars
  • The First City by Joe Hart: I liked how this book wrapped up the trilogy. It didn’t leave much left unanswered but a spin off series of the children would be pretty cool. I’m eager to read more by this author.
  • Soulless by Gail Carriger Vol 1: I’m new to the graphic novel scene and have found a few so far I enjoy. I think I would like to continue the series and see where it goes as well as read the novels she has wrote as well. Not sure which to have read first but oh well.
  • Geekerella by Ashley Poston: I have posted a review about this as best I can with no spoilers.
  • Lumberjanes issue #2-11: I really enjoy these comics.
  • Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warher: just wanted to visit my childhood favorite. Lol
  • Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson: This book was an easy and insightful read. Wrote in verse. Talks about her experience growing up in the south and then NY.
  • 49 excuses for not tyding your room by James Warwood: Middle grade, fun little book..
  • The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis: This book, having a trigger warning for rape, was still a powerful book and really intense. I didn’t want to put this book down and when I did put it down i picked it right back up when I could. The ending was heart breaking but amazing at the same time. It discusses a tough topic in a way that is easier to understand. The multi perspective view is fitting and the writing was awesome. Hands down my top read this year. 5/5 stars.
