I'm so bitter, y'all, because I only read five books in May and I blame it all on Baby Teeth (see below). So, I feel like I've got to be really extra this month, and honestly, I'm taking a week off from work in July to probably just read. I've actually had a fairly large group of e-galleys to get through, a lot of which are being released in July (and some that were already released, oops). So I've been trying to get through those and I honestly tend to struggle when it comes to e-books. I think that's holding me back a bit, but I have three more I plan to get through this month, then I'm really going to limit my request and acceptance of e-books. I'd much rather have a physical copy.

Anyways, here are the five I got through in May.

The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen ★★★☆☆

*Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage ★☆☆☆☆
POPSUGAR Reading Challenge Prompt: N/A
Brief synopsis: Suzette is happily married to Alex and together they have Hanna, an incredibly smart seven year-old who hasn't ever actually spoken before. When doctors confirm there's nothing physically wrong with Hanna, Suzette becomes convinced it's all psychological - especially because Hanna is different when Alex isn't around. Hanna loves her daddy, but not her mommy so much. In fact, she'd much prefer it if mommy was gone (dead).
