It’s a week late, but here’s my May wrap-up post. May has been a good month, the sentiment is widespread as blogger from blogosphere seems to report positive achievement for May.
I have read 2 non-fictions (Zeitoun and Understanding Judaism), 7 fiction books and 2 short stories. My favourite read is Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee, a possible favourite read contender for the year and followed closely behind is Malouf’s Every Move you Make.
- Zeitoun, Dave Eggers
- Dream Angus, Alexander McCall Smith
- Every Move You Make, David Malouf
- The Outside by Albert Camus (other title : Le E’stranger, The Stranger)
- Understanding Judaism by Carl S. Ehrlich
- Where Three Roads Meet, Salley Vickers
- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, Marry Ann Shaffer & Anne Barrows
- Disgrace, J.M. Coetzee
- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by Scott Fitzgerald
The most disappointing read for the month is The Guernsey Literary….whatever long-winded title book.
In May, I also wrote about the UK Election. In which leaders David Cameron (Conservative) and Nick Clegg (Liberal Democrat) had come together to form the first coalition government since WWII, sending out a strong message that despite Conservative – Liberal Democrat appears to be an oxymoron, with compromise and understanding the partnership may have a chance to succeed.
I found a Random note with a beautiful quote written on it. Remembering my encounter with a lady from South Africa, I have also shared the travel memories and beauty of Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. I have worked through a hectic month at work and passed the second paper of 3 papers on a banking certfication.
I am not sure about the month of June. It is summer and the weather is hot, I’ll be outdoors. There is a pressure to read all the library books I have got, so my priority is to read the stack or decide to return them back to Library without reading them.
Dilemma, dilemma, dilemma..it will be the dilemma of my summer. 😉
