May went by rather fast. It feels like I didn’t read too much this month, but looking at the number it was another good month of reading for me. I think the reason it feels like I didn’t read as much is that I read a lot of these books in one day, so there were plenty of days I didn’t read, or I read very little. And of course I reread three books as well.
Anyway lets do this wrap up!
# Read more by Dutch authors in the fantasy genre.
I did not read a book by a Dutch author this month. I think this might be because I had just finished the first book in Natalie Koch’s fantasy series, and I really want to read the second one. But I still have to buy it. And it is an expensive buy. But I feel I want to read this series to completion first. The third book comes out in August.

# Read all owned books of series you have started (2014 and the first 2 months of 2015)
Owned books read – 10/34
Series of owned books – 6/19
This month I have finished one book for this goal which was A Dance with Dragons. But it was quite massive so I think that was a good attempt at this goal this month.I am now caught up with A Song of Ice and Fire. Finally!
As said in my reading goals post, books that I didn’t own at the end of February aren’t going to be counted to this goal which is why End of Days isn’t counted here for instance.
# Currently Reading
Dodger by Terry Pratchett
Dodger is my first audio book. I’m only an hour in. I have a hard time picking it up, but what I have listened to I have liked. Though more for the person reading it than the actual story. I do hope I can finish it in the next month.
