May Monthly Wrap Up!

Hello everyone!  I'm happy to say that I've managed to read a couple of reading arcs for the month of May, which is great since my ARC pile just keeps getting larger and larger everyday!  Meanwhile, I have noticed that I haven't gotten much posting done in May, probably because I was so busy in May.  But, reading 7 books in May was quite an accomplishment and I'm hoping to read more books in June now that summer is in session!

BEST OF THE MONTH: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

This will be linked to The Book Date's Month in Review and A Cocoon of Books Best of the Bunch! 


  1. It's great to see you enjoye Throne Of Glass that much! I hope you will enjoy the sequels as well. Happy reading!

  2. I really need to read Sarah J. Maas. It looks like you had a great May. I hope you have a great June as well!

  3. Just had a peek at your Paper Bag Princess, I bought that book for my 4 year old grand niece. I thought it had a great message about a feisty girl and was really fun.

  4. One of these days, I will get around to reading Sarah J. Maas. I'm glad you enjoyed Throne of Glass so much. Good job on the May reading, and I hope you have time to read even more in June!

  5. You had a busy bookish month! Those Monstrous stories look interesting. :)

  6. I can relate to your issue with review books---it seems like they always pile up impossibly, no matter how good we try to be about not accepting too many!

  7. Throne of Glass not only looks exciting, but sounds so much fun to read.
