Reading Log: May 2024

Already time for the May reading log. The more the months go by the more I don’t see the backlog ever going down, so I’ve somewhat stopped worrying about it. My Anime-Planet did pass 1,000 manga / LNs marked ‘reading’ so now I’m trying to put my efforts into finishing stuff off and getting that down. It’s fairly motivating to watch until it goes up several times more when new serialisations start. Anyway here’s what I’ve been reading:

As you can probably tell, this month I’ve been grinding away my Hana to Yume backlog quite a bit… Not as many light novels as I’d hoped to finish, mostly ’cause I got really busy the last week or so and have a few on the verge of finishing but just not got there. Stats are 57 manga up from 53 last month, 23 one-shots up from 13 and 15 light novels down from 20. Still damn good though and even light novels are joint lowest with March, which again busy month! The backlog is up from 541 to 572. A lost cause. Here’s to another month of happy reading~
