Honestly, I can’t even remember what happened in May. Everything went by so quickly! We had lots of soccer and lots of celebrations and overall it was a really good month. But holy cow, it went fast! Now that school’s officially over (YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), I think things will slow down a bit. The kids have a few camps and activities scattered throughout the next couple of months and a few things on our Summer To-Do list, but otherwise we’re hoping to relax a little, read a lot, and get some things done around the house and the yard. I just hope the weather cooperates!

Here’s what happened in May on the blog:

Most Exciting Book Mail

I got a blogger package from Fierce Reads and it was awesome! I’m super excited for Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills and the others look interesting as well. And as soon as my daughter saw the preview from First Second, she snatched it away from me! It looks like they’ve got some great graphic novels coming out soon!

This Darkness Mine Before She Ignites (Fallen Isles Trilogy #1) They Both Die at the End Retribution Rails

This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis * Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows * They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera * Retribution Rails by Erin Bowman

I also got super lucky in the eARC department and downloaded these guys from Edelweiss!! Thanks so much to HarperTeen for the first three and HMH Books for Young Readers for the last one!

Favorite May Reads

The Names They Gave Us When Dimple Met Rishi Royal Bastards

The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord was definitely a favorite of mine. Both from this month and probably all year. And if you’re looking for something fun in contemporary romance, put When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon on your list. And for something fun with non-stop action on the fantasy side, check out Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts.

Coming Up In June

Oh boy. I have no idea. I’m so far behind and just barely getting by right now. I don’t have anything planned out, except for one blog tour that I’m excited to be participating in. But beyond that, it’s pretty much day to day right now. I hope as the month progresses, things will calm down. Like I said above, everything has just been crazy busy and by the time the kids are in bed, I’m lucky if I can focus long enough to read anything, let alone plan out and write blog posts. But maybe, if we’re all lucky, that’ll change starting in the early weeks of June.

I hope whatever you are up to this month that it’s a good one!
