I took two mini-trips this month. One by bus to visit one of my bestest friends for her 30th birthday, and the second by ferry to visit my parents (my dad's birthday and Mother's Day were on the same day this year!) June is shaping up to be a little quieter and it'll be nice to have some weekends at home for a change. While I received my copies of both Insurgent and City of Lost Souls last month, I STILL haven't read either of them! Hopefully, with us sticking around a little more next month, there will be time for me to read both. I've also placed my very first orders with The Book Depository (this could become a big addiction!) and am looking forward to receiving my copies of Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson and Half-Blood by Jennifer Armentrout.
May was my second month participating in Random Acts of Kindness. Due to my weekends away, I didn't jump in until later in the month, but sent a copy of Legend to Andra @ Unabridged Andra. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did!
I also did my very first guest post over at Into The Morning Reads. Click here to read a bit about how I first fell in love with books and then, later, fell in love in a bookstore. Jenny was also offering a giveaway for a blog makeover at her other blog, Inside the Kaleidoscope, and I WON! I'm sure you've probably noticed my fancy new blog design -- I owe all this amazingness to Jenny and her incredible graphic design skill. I have seriously spent the last day just staring at my blog and sighing happily.
And, finally, here are the books that I read this month (click on the titles to read my review!):
- Adventures of Kavalier & Clay
- Dear Bully - 70 Authors Tell Their Stories
- Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi
- Wonder - R.J. Palacio
- Everneath - Brodi Ashton
- Variant - Robison Wells
- Article 5 - Kristen Simmons
- Chopsticks - Jessica Anthony & Rodrigo Corral
Hope you've all had a wonderful month of May as well -- did you read anything un-put-down-able? Are you able to read outside in the sunshine in your part of the world? Thanks for stopping by my blog!
