May 2016 Wrap-Up

Hello booknerds!

I know this wrap-up post is a whole week late, but hey, life got in the way, shit happens, I’m trying not to get bogged down by it all. May was WILD. So many bookish and non-bookish things happening. But first, let’s get down to the business of bookish data:

Print books: 8 books, 1944 pages

Audiobooks: 7 books, 2558 pages, approx. 77.6 hours

Graphic novels/Comics: 5, 599 pages


Total number of books/comics: 20

Total page count: 5101

Read My Own Damn Books: 15 

Smash Your Stack: I hit my goal of 15 books (barely)

Read The Books You Buy: May was a terrible month in terms of keeping track of things, so I don’t really have a tally of the number of books I bought. Suffice to say, BookCon happened and I did buy at least 3 there, and then a few more when I went to Read Harder book meet-up, so yeaaaah.

Not too shabby considering I barely read anything in the last week and has so many social things happening all through May. My life is by no means any less chaotic, but getting that conference and then the work event out of the way are definitely two major stressors out of the way. I am still recovering from the past week and slowly tackling each portion of my life. I meant to spend some time on Sunday writing but I was so tired that all I did was read and nap. I will get those reviews and tags rolling out in a bit. 

Until then, happy reading everybody!

  1. Seriously, I need your brain too. I wish I could read 15 books in one month D: My blog would be so lively and awesome if I could read that much. But alas..
    Have you shared your thoughts on the Transmigration of Bodies yet? Yay or nay?

    1. Thank you! Audiobooks get me through traffic, my chores, cooking, and walks/runs. More often that not I’m too tired during the week to do much else except listen to an audiobook. It’s a habit I picked up only within the last year and I love it so much! Also, I’m looking forward to read The Raven Cycle now in print because I sped through the audiobooks I’m sure I’ll need to revisit details. 😀
