May Reading

Logically I know that May has 31 days but somehow I lost at least 10 of them. And so the reading list for this month is a bit shorter but no less interesting. In fact, I was fortunate enough to read two debut novels that I found to be absolutely amazing.



Intense but with flashes of humor. Ultimately touching. My full review is at Portland Book Review.





Sometimes you need to go to another time and place and Tsarist Russia has always been a favorite.





This may not be your cup of tea but I am one of those people who has been interested in this group for a long time. This is a well-researched look inside. Full review.



My only problem with this book is that I procrastinated on writing my review and had to go back and read it again. Which was not a bad thing but lesson learned- read it and write about it asap. Powerful and thought-provoking



What an amusing way to end the month. A clever concept (the 12 gods of Olympus living in modern day London) executed with humor. Enjoyed it enough that I tweeted the author and got the scoop that it's being made into a movie w/ Sharon Stone.
