All About That Cover: My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi Meadows

"All About That Cover" is a weekly event hosted here that focuses on the differences between various book covers of the same book, such as cover changes, covers from different countries as well as special editions.  U.S vs. UK Cover
At first glance I preferred the U.S cover. However once I realized that there's plenty of humor in this book I feel that the UK cover symbolizes that the best. 
What's your favorite cover, the U.S or the UK edition? 
Don't forget, if you'd like more information on the book just click on one of the covers!

May Wrap-Up

This month has been a pretty slow month in terms of reading & blogging. I've been super busy with work (blah) and I've been exhausted by the time the weekend rolls around.

That being said I still managed to read four full-length books and one novella. I'm pretty proud of myself!

What I read in May:


So how many books did you manage to read for the month of May?
