The month started with a review of The Body Artist, book #45, and ended with a review of The Spy Who Came in From the Cold, book #43. In between, we reviewed Saturday (#2), Breakfast at Tiffany’s (#467), The Big Sleep (#599), The Shining (#312), The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (#820) and The Bluest Eye (#365).
After a tiny bit of googling on a hunch, I discovered that there are film adaptations of all of the books reviewed in May, bar Saturday. This was purely by coincidence, and it would be an interesting exercise to see how the films compare to such highly-regarded novels.
In other news, the eight books reviewed in May have taken us very close to having reviewed 150 books!
