Welcome to the May reading list at Intrusions of Beauty!
I love libraries, and love that they provide free reading material to the community. Literacy is something I’m passionate about, as well as making sure the next generation appreciates and loves reading. The local library near our house has become a wonderful resource for me. It’s free, within walkable distance, and has access to all the libraries in the county if they don’t happen to have what I’m looking for. Kevin and I have even enjoyed an afternoon reading and drinking coffee in one of their reading rooms with a gorgeous view of the surrounding area.
As I wrap up reading and reviewing April’s books, I have an awesome list to look forward to this month – most of which are library books. I have another classic to check off my list, and a few books that I plan on using to help me with my latest volunteering project. I’m working with a wonderful nonprofit on growing their social media, and I’ve found a few books to give me some new ideas and tactics – one of which I used for my thesis last year! I’m looking forward to reading it again with a new perspective.

- A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire #3) by George R.R. Martin || After last month’s The World of Ice and Fire, I’m ready to dive back into this series. Since I’ve seen the show through season 4, I have a pretty decent idea what’s coming up in this volume ( where I last left off, I hadn’t even reached the Red Wedding, so that should be “fun” to relive in print!). It has been interesting to see the differences between the show and novels, and I expect new details and side plots that didn’t make it to TV in this one too. Now, if I can just get Kevin caught up through season 4 of the show, we can start in on season 5!
