It’s time for another monthly wrap-up! May was a bit of a slower reading month for me. I only finished eight books, but I finished a majority of the books I had planned out for the month, so that seems like a win to me!
Books I Read:
Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan (4 Stars)
The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert (review coming soon) (4 Stars)
To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo (review coming soon) (5 Stars)
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare (5 Stars)
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman (4 Stars)

As I said earlier, it was a bit of a slower reading month for me, but it was a quality reading month. My lowest rating was 3.5 Stars, which is pretty great. So, while I read less, the quality was high, and that is the most important thing, don’t you think?
Things I Posted:
I started doing WWW Wednesday posts this month, and I’ve really been enjoying it. It is definitely keeping me more accountable. I think doing three posts a week is working well for me right now. I just started a new job, which will give me a few more days a week off, so I might potentially add another day to my posting schedule. I’ll have to think about it…thoughts?
May was a pretty big month for me! I went to the Renaissance Festival with my husband and my friends Lori and Cole. I had lots of fun movie nights with several of my friends. My husband, Nathan, and I became official members of our church. I had my monthly tea party that I host at my house.
Most importantly, I quit my job at Barnes & Noble. I worked there for three years, made some great memories and some even greater friends. But, it was time to move on. I will definitely miss a lot of things about working in a bookstore (the discount on books being a major one 😉 ), but I am excited to start my new job. I am working in a flower shop, where I will be learning the art of arranging flowers! I am super excited for this opportunity, and can’t wait to see how it challenges me 🙂
My June TBR Pile:
I have a lot of NetGalley ARCS for books that are being published during the month of June, so I need to get on those ASAP!! As for the other titles, I’ve been meaning to read Suitors and Sabotage for a while. I just finished Lady Midnight, and am anxious to start on Lord of Shadows. Olivia Twist is the book that I received in the May Once Upon a Bookclub box this month, and I am planning to follow the reading plan they sent, so that I can open up the packages on their schedule.
How many books did you read this month? Have you read any of the books I read? What about the books on my TBR for June? Let me know down in the comments!
Love and happy reading,
