May Wrap Up and June TBR

Hello, Hello! 
Long time no see. I hope you are all well - and reading! 
For this first post, I thought I'd share with you what I read in the month of May and what I plan on reading during June. Some of these books are German (my first language), but I linked all of them to Goodreads, so if you want to go see if there's an English translation - there you go! 

The German Ones (none of them translated into English, sadly, but if you can read German and have read them, let me know what you thought of them!) 

Mir fehlt ein Tag zwischen Sonntag und MontagDas Känguru-ManifestDie juristische Unschärfe einer Ehe

The English Ones: 

How to Read a Book: The Classic Guide to Intelligent ReadingHard ChoicesUnspeakable Things: Sex, Lies and RevolutionRunning and Being: The Total Experience

Just realized pretty much all the books I finished this month were non - fiction books. Thankfully, these were all really good. How to Read a Book will probably change my University experience forever, Laurie Penny may not have changed my views on feminism radically, but definitely everything I ever knew about youth culture and protests of the (young) masses. Finally, Hard Choices took an incredibly long time to finish and got a bit repetitive at the end and I had my biggest (though not very big) problems with Running & Being. 


June! The link from spring to summer, my birthday month, endless days without school or work to worry about! 

To begin with, these are the books I have already read in June: 

Pivot Point (Pivot Point, #1)Saga, Volume 1 (Saga #1-6)Zur Verfassung Europas: Ein EssayWe Were LiarsUs

And now the books I'm still planning to read: 

We Are Not OurselvesGeschichte des Westens: Vom Kalten Krieg zum Mauerfall5 to 1The Thing Around Your NeckJust One Year (Just One Day, #2)Saving June

The Author I want to read this month: Zadie Smith! 

White TeethOn BeautyNWThe Autograph ManChanging My Mind: Occasional EssaysMartha and Hanwell (Pocket Penguin 70s #45)

I should probably add that this is a selection. I would really like to get through all of these books and I should have the time for it, too, but I might have to make compromises here and there. 

So, what are you reading this month? Do you ever set focus on a single author and try to read all their works? This is a completely new experience for me, but I would like to try!
