Reading Update: May

Books Completed: (clicking on the title will take you to my review)
The Bride's Kimono - Sujata Massey
The Diary of a Young Girl - Anne Frank
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - J.K. Rowling
White Teeth - Zadie Smith
Who Killed Zebedee? - Wilkie Collins

Favourite read for May?
That's a tough one because I enjoyed all the books I read this month and rated many of them the same. But maybe I'll go with Harry, just because it was so fun to revisit the beginning.

Reading Challenge Progress Report:
(see left sidebar for links)
Chunkster Challenge = 3 done, 1 to go (by June 30th - I'm not sure I'm in the mood and/or will have time to get to the last chunkster this month but we'll see)
Banned Book Challenge = 3 done, 2 to go (by June 30th)

And the Summer Mystery Challenge has started so I'm looking forward to reading 6 new-to-me Mystery authors over the next 3 months.

I also just found out about a new challenge that I can't resist (surprise! surprise!) and have already started making a list for it. It's the Book Awards Reading Challenge that starts on July 1st and runs to June 30th, 2008. I'll be posting about that one soon.

And last but not least I'm playing Dewey's Blogroll Game. You? (click button for more info)


  1. What an interesting list. My best May read was Suite Francaise.

  2. How in the world are you keeping on pace with all those challenges? I'm only in 3 (with 2 more to start this summer) and I'm drowning. It's a good problem to have.

  3. Sounds like May was a great reading month. But you know, I didn't really need to hear about this other new challenge - book awards?! Oh my! :)

  4. I don't know how I missed seeing that you also read a Sujata Massey book, this month.

    3 chunksters is great. Be happy and skip the last one if you don't feel up to it. :)

  5. MyUtopia,
    Hi. Thanks for stopping by. I really need to try to read Suite Francaise sometime soon.

    You're kidding, right? I'm quite behind in most of the challenges! You're right though it's a good problem to have. :P

    LOL. Sorry! I always wish I could read more but that's just the way it goes. It was a pretty good month though.

    That's ok. You've been distracted with other things going on. And I'll see how the month goes but I'm not going to worry about it, thanks. :)

  6. YOU are a book challenge MANIAC. :D

  7. I just had fun with your hangman game!

  8. Donna,
    LOL! Guilty as charged!

    Fun, isn't it? Glad someone else besides me enjoys it.
