Book of the Month: May

Who's ready to jump out of the pages of last month's fantasy novel and into the pages of history? We're taking a big leap in genres this month, but this book is worth reading every page. Let's jump back in time!

Funny story, it's officially Mystery May (but I'm sharing a book about history with you) and the mystery novel I shared with y'all was in March! So here's the mystery... how come I didn't know that earlier?? (But also, what's to stop you from re-reading the mystery novel and then this book?) If you've read both, I'd love to hear in the comments which one you thought was a better read!

THIS MONTH'S BOOK: Night by Elie Wiesel
Genre: Autobiography
Published: 1956
About: The first book in Elie Wiesel's 3 book memoir (easily read as a stand alone book) takes its reader back to the time of the Holocaust, where Elie shares his story about his time in Auschwitz. As sad as this book can get, I still couldn't put it down...

Okay, hear me out. You know those soft, cushy benches all around the museum? Perfect for people-watching (if you're a little crazy like me and you like to laugh at all the kids that run through the exhibits) and perfectly placed to relax.

Here's the thing, I think this book should be read in a museum! Sure, it's easy to read a book anywhere, but it just feels like it'd be fun to pick someplace a little bizarre. I mean, it's crazy to pay for entry to a museum only to sit on a bench to read your book... but doesn't it sound like fun?!

TA-DA! Another one of my crazy ideas! A museum and a book... I think it's the perfect match. If you do decide to read in a museum, I hope you enjoy!

Happy reads everyone! 

Also.... HAPPY HARRY POTTER DAY! Just out of curiosity, what house are you in? I'm 39% Gryffindor, 19% Ravenclaw, 25% Hufflepuff, and 17% Slytherin... and yes, I took one of the millions of quizzes out there, so... what are you??!

Have any good book suggestions for the months to come? Let me know in the comments!
