The goodies for May were The Gods of Gotham, Yes Chef, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, Let's Pretend This Never Happened and Relish. They range the spectrum from crime / detective thriller to memoir to graphic novel memoir-ish delight. I suppose, most importantly, they all represented an opportunity to get away. I escaped to a land of freewheeling cheesy delight and 1845 crime-ridden New York City. It's the cheapest and most accessible way I know to travel / time-travel.
Sometimes books scare us, delight us, move us. And sometimes they are just a comfort and the best thing that you can cuddle up with in bed late at night. If you have any suggestions for June, I'd love to hear them.
