Sharon | 366 comments Just finished @Speak No Evil by Uzodinma Iweala. I seem to be choosing sad books lately completely by accident. Very sad, but really well written and I love the style where half the book of from one character’s point of view and the other half from another character. Five stars.

Teresa (sweettreads) | 87 comments The Healer's Apprentice and The Merchant's Daughter both by Melanie Dickerson

3 1/2 out of 5 stars. Just because I'm not huge on romance. But I like it enough to read the rest of the series

Awake at Dawn by C.C. Hunter 4 out of 5 stars

E.J. | 9 comments I just read Keep Me Safe by Maya Banks. Two thumbs way down. I didn’t like her, him or the story.

Teresa (sweettreads) | 87 comments The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson 4.5 out of 5 stars

The Fairest Beauty by Melanie Dickerson 3 out of 5 stars but that is just because I don't like romance. I'm going to finish this series because it is good, it's just not something I would rave about because it has a little bit to much mushy stuff.

Sharon | 366 comments Read Scarlet, the sequel to Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I really like this series. This one was much more fast paced and I’m looking forward to the next one. I also read Ninoma by Noelle Stevenson. It’s a graphic novel which is way out of my comfort zone. I thought it was weird but ok.

I've finished

Death by Didgeridoo and A Darker Shade of Magic

I ended up really enjoying A Darker Shade of Magic. It took me forever to get into, but the last half was amazing!!

Death by Didgeridoo was cute. I enjoyed it, and it was a quick read. It was maybe just a little too fast though. That's my only complaint.

And I just finished listening to Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder

Such a cute cozy mystery series! I loved it!

Keri Phillips  | 167 comments Ok. Here is my list for May!

Outlander - Gets 4 stars. I love this one and have read it 3-4 times. Very graphic and violent , but still love it.

Only Human - 3 stars. Disappointing ending to this series. Seemed more of an indictment of social injustice than the end to a sci-fi series.

Children of Blood and Bone - Totally a 5 star read. Love this one and can't wait to read the next installment. Highly recommend the audiobook.

The Demon King - 5 stars. Had no idea what to expect when I started this one and I already have book 2 from the library.

The Vatican Princess: A Novel of Lucrezia Borgia - This was utterly fascinating. 5 stars. If you like Philippa Gregory, get this one.

Enigma - I love Catherine Coulter and this one didn't disappoint. 4 stars.

The Tudor Secret - 4 stars. Loved this one. Had much more artistic license and fiction than a Philippa Gregory. I already have the 2nd one ready to go :)

The Queen's Vow: A Novel of Isabella of Castile - Can't remember if I gave it 4 or 5 stars, but I loved this one. Very much like a Philippa Gregory and it focused on a Queen I didn't know a ton about.

Been a BUSY month - LOL
