I only finished two books in May due to being busy in my personal life, but am satisfied with what I read. Hopefully June will be more productive as I have a few shorter books in my queue, but there's also a few longer ones. I also need to make sure I keep up on placing holds from the library in the event a book is in high demand.

Man's Search For Meaning

This was a book I've been wanting to read for a while. It talks about a man's experience during the Holocaust as someone who lived through it as a prisoner in various camps controlled by Germany during the time period. The first half of the book was pretty interesting and talked about his experience day to day as well as how he managed to survive and his mental state. I enjoyed the first half a lot, but didn't like the second half at all. The second half goes into a specific type of therapy and really sounded like a sales pitch or advertisement for this type of therapy. Worth reading, but ignore the second half completely.

The Dark Forest

Book two of The Three Body Problem trilogy. I found this one to be enjoyable but didn't progress as quickly as the first and found some points in the story to be a bit of a slog. I'm not sure if this was due to the translation or simply the contents but many plot points were drawn out and the dialogue was stiff. I'll definitely read the third book but I'm going to need to take a bit of a break from this series before I do that.
