May's book selection is an Oprah book club book from the past or the present.

I am going to read Night by Elie Wiesel. This book has been on my TBR list for awhile.

Brooke Marsh | 40 comments I'm thinking either Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail or Daughter of Fortune.

I noticed there are Bill Cosby books on there. Hmmm... I wonder how his past works will be considered after his guilty verdict.

I read An American Marriage for May. I liked the different perspectives presented when an innocent black man is railroaded for a crime he didn't commit, and the author presents the husband and wife as equally empathetic characters, but the wife did something about halfway through the book that really made me think less of her. Although maybe we were supposed to see the flaws in each character and how unfortunate situations can bring out the worst in people. Doesn't bring down the book's quality, however.

Brooke Marsh | 40 comments I’ve just now started my May read - Wild by Cheryl Strayed. It’s interesting so far.

Sara Kreps | 250 comments I changed my may book from daughter of fortune to night. While i had wanted to do a new book, i just wasn't making sufficient progress in the former. Night was finished quickly, and very good. (I had read it before for middle school, many years ago, and only remembered that i liked it.) I will still finish daughter of fortune, but not until later in June.

Malissa (libraryblondie) | 110 comments Bit slow here. Just finished The Road a few days late. But I loved it! Much more readable than I expected and a bit less baby eating than reported. I do love me some end of the world 🤣
