May wrap up

We're already halfway through the month of June, but hey, I haven't done my May wrap up yet so I thought I'd share! I managed to read some books, of which I'm really proud since work is taking up a LOT of my time - I really have to get used to working full time again.. But at least I'm still reading!

Some stats for May - 7 books - 2 novellas - 3,001 pages - average 333 pages per book

Which makes a total of 19,074 pages read as of the end of May, or 54 books read so far in 2012, with an average of 353 pages per book. Whoop! I try to keep my average higher than 350 pages, but it's hard since I'm reading a lot of novellas and short stories. Also, I'm getting more and more behind on my 50,000 pages in 2012 goal, so I *really* need to step it up! *kicks herself into gear*

Anyhoo, here's my May wrap up video!

The Girl in the Clockwork Collar by Kady Cross
From Fame to Shame by Veronica Blade
My Vampire Summer by Elle Casey
Here Where the Sunbeams Are Green by Helen Phillips
Once by Anna Carey
Prim Improper by Deirdre Sullivan
Storm Born by Richelle Mead
Soulmates: Het Verhaal van Sky by Joss Stirling (Finding Sky)
The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan

Did not finish
The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Besides the books I managed to read last month, I also decided to mark two books as DNF. It's sad, but I wasn't reading them and didn't feel like picking them up any time soon. I still hope to read them sometime in the future, but for now, I'll put them back on my shelves. I read only two books I bought myself, so I think it's safe to say that B&DERM was a success! Whoop! I'll keep trying to read as many review books as I can in the future :)

My favorites of last month? Storm Born by Richelle Mead (great adult series!) and Finding Sky by Joss Stirling. But I also really enjoyed The Girl in the Clockwork Collar (that ending!), The Serpent's Shadow (Rick forking Riordan!) and Once (need book three nao!), so I'd say it was a great month one again.

Which books have you read this month? Which of those was your favorite? :)
