My goodness May went by way too fast!!! I can’t believe it’s already over! But yay for Summer ๐Ÿ˜€ 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 Midnightย 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 thanย Throne of Glass. I didn’t think it was possible, but it is!!!

Cruel Beautyย is dark, twisted, and if I was going to read a retelling ofย Beauty and the Beastย this would be it! It was amazing ๐Ÿ˜€ Go read it if you don’t believe me!

Favorite Quote

This is the human way, she thought. On the edge of destruction, at the end of all things, we still dance. And hope.ย ~Fromย Crimson Boundย by Rosamund Hodge

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 ๐Ÿ˜€ 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 ๐Ÿ˜€

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 ๐Ÿ˜€ Also we are one month closer to my new nephew and niece/nephew arriving!!! I’m so excited to be an aunt again ๐Ÿ˜€ What are you doing in June?

    • Yea definitely! You NEED to read Cruel Beauty ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!!
