My goodness May went by way too fast!!! I can’t believe it’s already over! But yay for Summer 😀 This month was jam packed and full of fun for me. I participated in the May ARC Clean Sweep challenge and kicked some ARC butt! And this past Friday was GARTH BROOKS!!! I had a blast with my mom and it was just….I don’t know I’m at a loss for words….fantastic, amazing, a once in a lifetime experience….yeah that works 😉 What did you do this month?

Favorite Read

Oh my goodness! It’s so hard to choose this month. I read over twenty books and only one 2 star read in the bunch! How about two?

Book Cover for "Crown of Midnight" by Sarah J Mass
Book Cover for "Cruel Beauty" by Rosamund Hodge

Crown of Midnight was perfect in my opinion, especially for a sequel! I usually never like books in a series as well as the first, but this one I liked even better than Throne of Glass. I didn’t think it was possible, but it is!!!

Cruel Beauty is dark, twisted, and if I was going to read a retelling of Beauty and the Beast this would be it! It was amazing 😀 Go read it if you don’t believe me!

Reading Challenge Update

May Clean Sweep ARC Challenge

I did it!!! I met my goal of 20 books and cut my ARC pile down in half 😀 The fact that I doubled my reading average this month astounds me. I was reading close to 5 books a week….won’t be doing that very often 😉 You might notice in the sidebar that my challenge meter says I’ve only read 8 books, BUT that’s because it measures the reviews written. Let’s just say that I’m scheduled up through June.

OutlanderChallenge2

 

I’m sorely behind on this challenge. I’ve only read book one. However now that the ARC challenge is complete and I’m mostly caught up on those, I plan to spend the next month binge reading Outlander to catch up!

Coming up in June

June is another full month but I’m excited about it. Here’s a few of the books I’ll be reviewing:

Book Cover for "The Clouded Sky" by Megan Crewe
Book Cover for "Crimson Bound" by Rosamund Hodge
Book Cover for "Summer in Snow Valley"
Book Cover for "The Witch Hunter" by Virginia Boecker
Book Cover for "Spelled" by Betsy Schow

In addition to a lot of great books, I’ve joined the COYER Summer Scavenger Hunt. It starts June 20th and runs through September 4th. Click below to join me 😀

What are you looking forward to in June?

June is another jam packed month, but it promises to be fun. We have VBS at our church in the middle of the month. I’m going to be helping with preschool crafts which is always fun 😀 Also we are one month closer to my new nephew and niece/nephew arriving!!! I’m so excited to be an aunt again 😀 What are you doing in June?

    • Yea definitely! You NEED to read Cruel Beauty 🙂 It was sitting on my shelf for several months to and believe I was disappointed in myself for doing it after I read it. Very good!!
