Happy May, everyone!
It was a slow month when it came to reading but at least I read a couple of great books. This month I’m going to focus on books that are on my currently reading shelf because I have too many on it. I hope this will be the month where I finally finish House of Sky and Breath. I’ve been reading it since February and I’m only 50% in. Wish me luck!

FAVORITE BOOK OF THE MONTH:
The Headsman by Cristina Mîrzoi
Take a glimpse into the world of a headsman, a gloomy village in which each dweller has a secret: an evil witch, a shrewd florist, a naive young man, a foreign merchant, a dreadful husband, a mischievous maid, and a lustful duke. These stories are intertwined, weaving a dark narrative of love, trickery, brutality, and loss.
Under the bleak aesthetic, raw human emotions unravel themselves in a gripping story about moral decay. In a world that belongs to the wicked, how far can one walk this path while keeping a clean conscience?
The Headsman is a collection of short stories that focus on interconnected characters, sometimes looking at the same event from a different perspective. As a genre, it falls somewhere under dark fiction territory.
