May 2022 Wrap-up πŸ’

Hi, friends! Another month has flown by and we’re on our way to summer! Overall May was a very successful reading month for me! I’m very excited to share my stats and top reads with you. Keep reading to get the run down πŸ™‚

Moods

This month I finally read 10 BOOKS!!! This has been my goal for each month of the year so far but May was the first time I hit that number. As satisfying as it is, I don’t think I’ll be pushing for that milestone again now that I’ve done it, though. I didn’t change my book length and I really had to power through the books to get there. In total I read 4,726 pages. My current status for the year is 41 out of my 80 book goal.

By genre I favored a mix of dark and adventurous reads.

Genres

Length
