My Month in Review: May

The Month in Review meme is hosted by Nicole at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

I note the non-Macmillan books in this post with a star.

Books completed this month:
The Story of the Great British Bake Off by Anita Singh*
Vincent and Theo: The Van Gogh Brothers by Deborah Heiligman (audio)
The Long Call by Ann Cleeves
Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule (audio) *
Stargazing by Jen Wang
The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner
Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro (audio) *
Mighty Moe: The True Story of a Thirteen-Year-Old Running Revolutionary by Rachel Swaby and Kit Fox
Cross Stitch The Golden Girls: 12 Patterns Inspired by Your Favorite Sassy Seniors by Haley Pierson-Cox (well, "read" is a strong word here. I skimmed through the entire thing and I've made two of the cross-stitches so that's what I'm calling "read.")
Do You Mind If I Cancel?: (Things That Still Annoy Me) by Gary Janetti

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
When Did the Statue of Liberty Turn Green? And 101 Other Questions about New York City by Jean Ashton*
For the Love of Men: A New Vision for Mindful Masculinity by Liz Plank
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel

What I acquired this month (non-work books): 
Upheaval: Turning Points for Nations in Crisis by Jared Diamond and Not Fade Away: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found by Rebecca A. Alexander, I bought for my husband from our local independent bookstore.
Cross Stitch The Golden Girls: 12 Patterns Inspired by Your Favorite Sassy Seniors by Haley Pierson-Cox I snatched out of the hands of a receiver (before she even had a chance to receive it) at one of my accounts while there for an appointment. This book never made it onto the floor of the store.
