Best Book Read in May

If We Were Villains: A Novel - M. L. Rio

Looking back at the month of May, I am astounded to find that I read 24 books.  Even better, only one of them was a dud.

 

But this book, this book stood out from the crowd.  An excellent, twisty mystery, lots of Shakespearean drama, and a surprising ending.  For a first novel, it is amazing, but since the author holds a Master's degree in Shakespeare Studies from King's College in London and Shakespeare's Globe and was herself an actor, she seems uniquely qualified to write this fabulous tale.

 

I would highly recommend it.

 

Happy June, everyone!
