I wonder how many people will manage to guess this month’s title adaptation. It’s from a pretty popular book that was published some time ago, one that I actually went looking for signed copies of about a week ago out of curiosity. Let’s just say, with the price on that book I could put half a down payment on a house. And yet I still want it so terribly. Anyway, I’ll let you all know what book this is from next month if you don’t manage to guess it!


Throughout May I manged to read 35 books (five more than last month!) and review 25, which is one short of what I had last month and so I really feel like I need to step it up a bit. Still waiting on that month when I review more than I read, but still manage to read a good amount.

the black mageAnd I think the best read of May this year is a graphic novel, one that was uncomfortable and shocking in a lot of ways. I reviewed The Black Mage recently, though it was this month and therefore will be part of June’s wrap up post, but it’s available if you wanted to check it out. The book deals heavily with racism, which ultimately is how it manages to really get to you.
