Monthly Motif: May Update

It’s time for another reading challenge update, this time for the Monthly Motif challenge! In May, the theme was book-to-screen, so we were instructed to read a book that’s been made into either a movie or tv show. I kind of anticipated struggling with this one because the kinds of books I usually read aren’t really made into movies or tv shows, but I was able to find a book on my shelf for my #killingthetbr challenge that also worked for this theme. Two birds, one stone and all that.

Books read:

Books not read:

  • Literally anything else.

Next month’s theme is Crack the Case, so I’ll be reading “a mystery, true crime, or whodunnit novel.” I already have library holds on a few different mysteries:

  • Faithful Place by Tana French
  • Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
  • People Like Us by Dana Mele

If you can recommend any other mysteries to me, please let me know!

Are you participating in the Monthly Motif reading challenge? If so, what did you read for this month’s prompt? Do you have any favorite book-to-screen adaptations?

      You’re the second person who’s said that about Tana French, so I’m getting even more excited!

      I’m also happy to hear that you liked Truly Devious. I love Maureen Johnson and I can’t wait to read this one! 🙂

    I found your review of The Girl in the Spider’s Web very helpful, as I’ve read the other books in the series but was debating whether to try one written by a different author. Thank you for the review 🙂

    For next month I can highly recommend The Dry by Jane Harper – it’s a whodunnit novel that’s unique and completely unpredictable!
