Best of: May 2020

May was a very mixed reading month for me. I read some amazing books in the first half, and then some really really shit ones, and then more recently, back to the good stuff.

But thankfully I read enough that was very good to have 19 books (that you should read!) in this post.

Total books: 54

Novels: 35
Novellas: 7
Poetry: 12

P.S. before we go any further, undoubtedly you have heard about the Black Lives Matter marches currently occurring around the globe. Please consider donating/signing petitions/educating yourself, resources for all of which you can find here.
