May 2015 Wrap-Up

Hello dear Readers,

This is my May 2015 Wrap-Up.

I read a total of four physical books, two Graphic Novels, one Audio book and three e-books, two of them are ARC copies I received from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

Overall, it was a great reading month. I only read two books from my original TBR List for May. The rest of the books are ones that I just felt I wanted and needed to read.

Title: Me before you 
Genre: Contemporary/Romance
Author: Jojo Moyes 
Publisher: Penguin Books
Language: English
Hardcover: 369 pages

Me before You by Jojo Moyes. This book made me cry a lot but I loved it. Has a great message. I did a full review of it on a previous post, if you like to read it. 

Title: Allegiant 
Genre: Sci-Fi/Dystopian
Author: Veronica Roth 
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Language: English
Hardcover: 544 pages

Allegiant by Veronica Roth, the third book on the Divergent Series. This book has an unexpected and sad ending, but overall, I loved the Divergent Series.

Title: David and Goliath 
Genre: Non-Fiction
Author: Malcolm Gladwell 
Publisher: Back Bay Books
Language: English
Paperback: 352 pages

David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell. I found the book interesting, you call tell the Author put a lot of effort on his research but it was not what I was expecting. It interested me enough to keep reading and finish it but not enough to love it.

Title: Have you seen Marie? 
Genre: Short Stories
Author: Sandra Cisneros 
Publisher: Vintage
Language: English
Paperback: 112 pages

Have you seen Marie? by Sandra Cisneros. After reading her book The House on Mango Street, which I liked a lot, I wanted to read more of her books. I found this one at the Library. A short book with beautiful Illustrations. Have You Seen Marie? Shows us the storytelling magic of Sandra Cisneros. This lyrically told, richly illustrated fable for adults is the tale of a woman’s search, in the wake of her mother’s death, for a missing cat—and a reminder that love, even when it goes astray, does not stay lost forever. 

Title: Letter to my Daughter 
Author: Maya Angelou 
Publisher: Random House Audio
Language: English

Letter to my Daughter by Maya Angelou. I listened to the Audiobook and I enjoyed it a lot. I still need to read another one of her books, I know why the caged bird sings. Looking forward to it. 

Title: Change of Heart 
Genre: Biographies & Memoirs
Author: Jeanne Bishop 
Publisher: Westminster John Knox Press (February 28, 2015)
Language: English
Hardcover: 208 pages

Title: Absolutely True Lies 
Genre: Fiction
Author: Rachel Stuhler 
Publisher: Touchstone
Language: English
Paperback: 352 pages

Two ARC copies I received from Netgalley. Change of Heart by Jeanne Bipshop and Absolutely True Lies by Rachel Stuhler. I posted reviews of these two books here on my blog. If anyone interested on reading them, click on the previous posts. I liked both books, very different stories but fantastic and powerful ones.

I also read Graphic Novels. My first time reading this kind of book. A game of thrones. Volume One and The Night Mobile. I also have my thoughts on these two posted here on the blog. I had an amazing time reading Graphic Novels and I absolutely will read more in the near future.

Finally, my favorite book I read during the month of May, Un buen Hijo de P, by Ismael Cala. He is a very famous Cuban-American Journalist and TV Host, has a TV Show in CNN in Spanish called CALA, where he interviews TV personalities, Celebrities, Politicians, Musicians, Athletes. This book is a work of fiction, Inspirational, Self-Help type of book. I loved the story and the moral on it. I will be posting a full review of it in the next days. 

Title: Un buen hijo de P
