The books I read in May 2022 were some of my favorites. This is interesting because it was also the first time I ever experienced any kind of reading slump!
A “reading slump” is something I had never even heard of until I joined bookstagram. The idea of a period of time where there’s little desire to read or any books that interest me was just a foreign concept. However, this month, I experienced that for the first time ever. Now, I still managed to read 3 books during the week that it happened, but one of them was already mostly done on Sunday morning and the second was one I read within a day. The third book? Well, let’s just say I picked one terrible week to choose a 941-page novel. I was stressed with my cat’s health issues, work, and so many other things and that long, drawn-out book was not doing me any favors.
Thankfully, I found my way out of the slump with a fantastic middle-grade book that I wound up loving! It helped kick me into gear and I ended the month strong with several 5-star reads. In fact, while I didn’t do a great job checking off my original TBR list, I managed to find many new favorite books. I can’t even pick a top title from May because so many of them wound up on my 2022 faves and even my all-time faves list! Keep on reading to see which ones stood out to me the very most!
