Book of May

It's that time again to look back to the book I loved in the past month (and those I didn't). In the month of May, I've read 13 books, even one nonfiction. :) (It's been a while :)).  Let's just say, I wasn't impressed and I'll stick to fiction. :)



Anyhow, I've read some truly awesome books! Like The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, it's my first book by the author, and I was very very surprised by how much I love the story. It's a very unique story and the writing is just beautiful. It tells the story of Nobody Owens, whose family was killed by Jack and he is raised in the Graveyard until the killer can be defeated and he go back to the world. It's a bitter-sweet book, but so beautiful. :)



I can't believe it took me so long to read it, but I finally read I, Robot by Isaac Asimov. I loved the movie, and I have high expectations. The book is short, and nothing like the movie, but somehow very good. :) It's a collection of short stories told by the robot psychologist Dr. Susan Calvin. 


I've read two short stories, both awesome in a different way, but the one that really moved me was The King's Decree. is a retelling of a Russian folktale of a princess who never laughed. It's a wonderful story that shines a light on depression and how it feels to feel nothing.

The last three books are all sequel in the long series (that I actually kept up with). :) Huntress is the 7th book in the Angelbound Offspring series, it tells the story of how Huntress came to the King and Queen and what was her former life. It's really good. :) 

I've read the second book in the Bridgertons series, The Viscount Who Loved Me, and it's just as addicting as the first one. There is something about these books that keeps me glues to the pages from start to finish. :)


Dead Meat: Day 8 is the second to the last book about the Zombie invasion, that resulted from failed voodoo ritual. With each book, the intensity turns up a notch. I can't wait for how it will all end. :)





Have you read anything good last month?
