Well hello, beautiful people! I hope you had a good weekend! Mine was very, very busy, and yet I feel like I accomplished nothing at home. It was one of those weekends. But we are starting the week off right with a Reading Wrap-Up! In May I read 17 books for a total of 6,010 pages. I will not be repeating that this month, I can tell you that!
Books 22 thru 34 of the In Death Series by J.D. Robb
I read 14 In Death books last month, which is nuts. But that put me up to book 34 in the series! Only 22 (some haven’t been released yet!) to go! Naturally, I loved them all, some more than others. New York to Dallas was an exceptional entry in the series. As always, check trigger warnings. 4-5 stars to all of them!
Garlic and the Vampire by Bree Paulsen
This adorable middle-grade graphic novel is about Garlic, who is tasked by the other vegetables in the Witch’s garden to go and slay the vampire that is moved into the castle. It was such a cute read and I really enjoyed seeing how it played out! I dislike Carrot, obvs. 4 stars.
Book Lovers by Emily Henry
Okay, full disclosure. I gave this book two stars, which sucks because it’s fantastic. But why give it two stars if it’s so good? Well, the main character does something that reminded me of someone I knew, and I just couldn’t get that image out of my head, so I had to stop reading it. The writing was fantastic and the plot was great, I just couldn’t get past that one thing. So yeah, two stars.
Electric Idol by Katee Robert
I really enjoyed the second entry into the Dark Olympus series. This one is all about Psyche and Eros and I loved their character dynamics and Eros’ mom! Woosh. Not a person you’d like to meet in a dark alley. 4 stars.
I like that mystery and crime are two separate genres. That’s hilarious. At least in context to the In Death books. You’d want to keep your true crime novels separate from your basic mystery novels, naturally.
But that is my reading wrap-up for May! What did your May reading wrap-up look like?

I’m impressed by your progress through the In Death series. I’ve currently got Echoes in Death to read as I’m making my way through the ones that they have on the shelves. They have the later ones and I’m reading them in a vaguely chronological order within the ones they’ve got.
Thank you! I’m surprised I’ve gotten as far as I have, honestly. I expected to have read a lot less of them by now. So I’m going to take the win! My library has the most recently published ones as well, so I can’t blame you for that one. Happy Reading!

I read Garlic and the Vampire a few months back and adored it! I thought it was so cute, and I’m so glad you enjoyed it as well!
It was so adorable. I really want to read the sequel, Garlic and the Witch!
