Reading Journal - May

Reading Journal

May has come and gone and I feel it wasn't one of my finest months of reading. Yes, I do have a decent list, but it took me quite a while to get through some of these. The last two days of May I sat down and purposed on finishing up my little pile that had collected. So here is my non-impressive pile.

I read:
  • Dorothy L. Sayers: The Complete Stories by Dorothy L. Sayers - The Lord Peter short stories were recommended by Cindy Rollins from The Literary Life podcast. I'm not a short story person, but I decided to check these out. This book includes the Lord Peter Wimsey Stories (great stories), the Montague Egg stories (short & fun reads), and other stories (Not my cup of tea at all!). 
  • Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers - I read this along with The Literary Life podcast. This is my second time to read Gaudy Night and I knew that when I first read through the Lord Peter series that I would have to re-read them since they are dense read, especially for fiction. If you have never read any of the Lord Peter books, I do recommend starting earlier in the series, especially the books with Harriet Vane.
  • MacBeth (No Fear Shakespeare) by William Shakespeare - I read this along with The Play's the Thing podcast. An intense read!
  • The Quiche of Death by M.C. Beaton - I grabbed this title since it looked like a quick cozy mystery. I didn't find the story line very intriguing (it took me two months to read) or the main character very likable.  Even though I did finish reading the book I probably won't be reading anymore in the series. 
  • Book Girl: A Journey Through the Treasures and Transforming Power of a Reading Life by Sarah Clarkson - A book about books and filled with book lists--what's not to love? While there are a lot of the recommendations I probably will not pick up I did put a few on my list that looked intriguing. 
  • The Path Between Us: An Enneagram Journey to Healthy Relationships by Suzanne Stabile - A few months ago I listened to a podcast (I have no clue which one) and Suzanne Stabile was being interviewed. I love to read about personalities and find the Enneagram a little confusing. This book was filled with plenty of information, but I still have a ways to go to understanding this way of understanding personalities.
