I can’t believe that May is almost over, but it seems to be true so I thought it was a good time to share the books I finished this month. I have to say that this month overall was pretty average, but there were a few gems!
I LOVED this book. It was a perfect mixture of history, horror, and science fiction. It follows a high school teacher who is shown a portal into the past. His goal is to stop the JFK assignation. Once again Stephen King has written an amazing book. I will say this monster of a book is over 1,000 pages, but I got through it very quickly. I find him to write in a way that is easy to read and his stories are very gripping.
A Single Man was a very enjoyable read. I read through it very quickly and I found I was invested in the main character quite quickly. The ending had me thinking a lot. It follows a man named George following the lost of his partner. There is also a movie adaptation and I plan on watching it very soon.
I wrote an entire review for this book you can find that here:Not Quite The Classics by Colin Mochrie. Over all I enjoyed this book and I plan on revisiting in the future. I found myself laughing and very much enjoying most of these short stories.
This was a great read about the Russian Revolution. I read it quite quickly and I found it very informative. I will say because it is such a large topic there is a lot of facts crammed in. I wrote a review you can find it here:REVIEW: A Short History of the Russian Revolution by Geoffrey Swain
Notorious RBG was an interesting read. I will say this is a great read about law, women’s rights, and a strong individual. I wrote a bit more about this book in my May book haul, which you can find here: Book Haul: May 2017. Over all if you are interested in law, women’s and social rights, or just want to learn about a Justice this is a good read.
I am happy to say I did not have any two or one star reads this month! I hope you reading was amazing this month!
