How many books can you read in May?

In honor of National Foster Care Month, try and read one (1) book about foster families, adoptive families, orphans, etc.

Good Luck!

Londa (londalocs) | 1526 comments I am looking on my to-read list to find a book that fits our theme this month, but I have read some recently that fit into this category.

The Book Thief
Counting by 7s (middle grade)
The Story of Beautiful Girl
Ellen Foster

I highly recommend ALL of those.

I'm so behind. I'm gonna try to make 5 this month. I think I'm going to read The Book Thief as the theme read.

Beverly | 1078 comments For those who are reading The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat - I think there is a situation in the the book that will fit this month's theme.

Beverly | 1078 comments I am going for 15 again.
I am so far behind in what I need to read.
As for this month's theme - maybe one of planned reads fits (or maybe can stretch to fit as I will be reading Boy, Snow, Bird that deals with a stepchild)

I love that book Lulu! Can't go wrong.

Yay!


I'm reading Boy, Snow, Bird too. It looks like my kind of book. I am a fairy tale fanatic, and I have been wanting to read Helen Oyeyemi for a while.

I have read Oyeyemi before and I think it is more her writing style than her theme of using fairy tales/mythology in her storylines that does not appeal to me. I really want to like Boy, Snow, Bird - so we will see how it goes.


Anastasia Kinderman | 942 comments So how did everyone else do this month?

I got through about half! You and Beverly are our big readers again this month, and Lulu achieved her goal!

Congratulations!

What was everyone's fav read this month.

For the ones I completed. The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat was the clear winner.

Thanks! Hehe, your buddy read thread certainly got me interested in that book, definitely on my TBR list.

I always have several faves and this month was no different:
1 Gang Leader for a Day: A Rogue Sociologist Takes to the Streets
2 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
3 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

I also enjoyed Divergent (finally read it). :)


Anastasia Kinderman | 942 comments Also the challenge app doesn't display the books I read still so I just listed them in the comments.

Well...since I finished The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat in June (boo!!!), my favorite read of May was Silver Sparrow.
