May Book Round-up

Once again it is time for a monthly book round-up!  I bought SO MANY books this month, thanks to a great library book sale and a planned used bookstore visit.  I was in a bit of a reading slump this month, so I didn’t get through many books. I also worked my way through Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep – as much as I love SK, his books always slow down my reading.  I have 6(!!) books I’m currently in the middle of, because I keep jumping around, so hopefully next month will see a good number of books read.

    It’s summer– you can never have too many books around. I did like the Cashore titles– you have to read Bitterblue now!

    What a great month! I like this round-up. I may have to start copying some of the cool things you do with your blog. Mine is just one review after another without much summary or other personal stuff. This is awesome!

      Thank you, I’m flattered!! I think it’s fun to do more than just reviews. I’ve gotten some ideas, like this monthly round-up, from other bloggers as well. Some things I do are of my own creation though, like my monthly Lost or Forgotten meme (which you are always welcome to participate in!).
