Mid-Month Book Look: What I’m Reading in May

Hello booklings! I’m extremely happy to report that it’s finally feeling like spring here in Buffalo! After a few days of glorious weather last week (during which I got to spend a perfect hour reading and drinking beer on the patio of my favorite bar) it rained like crazy, and now, in the last few days, there has been a positive explosion of leafy growth. There’s nothing better than the sight of brand new leaves on the trees lining my street.

It’s also been a pretty great reading month so far! I loved An Untamed State by Roxanne Gay, couldn’t put Brain on Fire down, and enjoyed Midsummer, a novella I read for TLC Book Tours. And now I’m reading The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer! I’m loving it so far and can’t wait to meet Ms.Wolitzer herself at BEA in a few weeks! Amid all of these great reads was one book I didn’t like: The Quick by Lauren Owen. It wasn’t at all what I was expecting, and although I tried to be open-minded, I just didn’t enjoy it.

What have you been reading this month?
