May wrap-up

May wrap-up

brilliant monthsMay is over and it was a surprisingly successful reading month. I really wasn’t expecting it to be, but somehow I was devouring books??

May events and challenges
In May I signed up for a few reading events and challenges and made good progress with all of them 😀

Read in May
Like I said, I surprised myself with the number of books I read this month. It helped that the weather was nice overall and I often was able to sit in the sun on my balcony. Perfect reading time without distraction 🙂
In the end, I read:

  1. N.P by Banana Yoshimoto
  2. 难过的弗洛格 (Frog is Sad) by Max Velthuijs
  3. Forbidden Colors by Yukio Mishima
  4. Fortunately, the Milk . . . by Neil Gaiman
  5. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
  6. The Woman in the Dunes by Kōbō Abe
  7. Vampire War Trilogy (The Saga of Darren Shan, #7-9) by Darren Shan
  8. Krabat by Otfried Preußler
  9. Vampire Destiny Trilogy (The Saga of Darren Shan, #10-12) by Darren Shan
  10. The Aunt Paradox by Chris Dolley

And look, I FINISHED A SERIES! I finally finished all of The Saga of Darren Shan and wow, that ending blew me away and now I’m shattered and heartbroken and have no clue what to do with the rest of my life.

May book haul
Yes, well, you see, my book buying ban is not 100% successful… But I only bought two of these books and got the rest for free 🙂 (If you’re curious, I bought The Circle and Tegenspel)

And then, very last-minute after I took the above picture, a book I won on Goodreads arrived 🙂

Plans for June
Reading for my sci-fi&fantasy MOOC! I can’t wait to get started 🙂 On top of that, I might make a start with ふしぎな図書館 (Fushigi na toshokan) by Haruki Murakami, my last language challenge book. Even if it’s just a few pages a day, that would already be a great help to get back on track with my Japanese!

    1. I’m happy I finally found(was gifted) a readable version of Sun Tzu. I tried the e-book but the formatting was terrible 🙁

      Thank you <3
