Marcia is Amused.

Jun 01 2012

What I Read in May:
Insurgent by Veronica Roth
The Pale King by David Foster Wallace
The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness
When She Woke by Hillary Jordan
The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
This month was a little YA heavy - Insurgent and Bitterblue came out and I had to read them ASAP, Leila said An Abundance of Katherines was her favorite John Green so I read that (A+, Leila), I was bored and drunk on the train and Caitlin had just told me to read When She Woke, and I can’t stop reading the Patrick Ness series even though I don’t like it - I just have to find out what happens next.
But I made up for that by reading ~1500 pages of Real Literature, as they say. And The Pale King, oh my god, what a book that could have been, what a book it is.
GoodReads says I’m holding steady at 4 books ahead of my challenge to read 100 books in 2012, 45 so far. Be my friend there.
ALSO. Page stats: 17,525 read this year, 3,721 this month. WHAT. I’m a monster. A BOOK MONSTER. That means that the books I read in May had an average page length of 465 and the books I’ve read in 2012 have an average page length of 390. I like big books and I cannot lie.
