Highs and lows
It's so hard to pick a favorite book from May because I read so many amazing ones! If I had to choose though, I think I would pick Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire. It was really the perfect book for me. It was so nostalgic and had amazing ace rep!
I didn't dislike any book I read this month, but I definitely took issue with some of the sexism in The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. I know it's an Iliad retelling, but I wished she had changed some things to make it less terrible to all the female characters.
Blog recap for May
