Hey, here I am two months in a row!!
I read some great books in June and am keeping my fingers crossed that my streak continues into July. Five of them were from my physical TBR pile but sadly two of those ended up being DNF's. One book wasn't for me, one tried to kill my dog and the last was just a mess.
Want to see all the wraps so far. Take a look Below at the list.
I just realized I haven't done one of these since March of 2017. I am nothing if not inconsistent!
Well, looks like I read mostly great books so yay but only three of them were from my physical TBR pile. Better than zero, I suppose! I learned a few things when looking back at my books in May, mainly that I am pretty much finished with any sort of thriller written from the FBI or investigators POV and that I need to weed my tbr of most of the YA titles hiding in there because they don't grab me. Horror is still my first and forever love and twisted serial killers are still working for me but I do need a little romance thrown in to break up the darkness.
May was a slow month for the blog. We went on vacation to Grand Cayman. I’ll be putting a post together to showcase all the fun pictures and things we did, but here is a little Cayman Sunset for you ^_^.
Beside our vacation my son has 1 week – 5 days of school left, before Summer Vacation. OMG where did the time go? My little kindergartner is growing up. Here is some of what he did throughout the year.
Empowering my kid to read!!
We received our 1st Prime Book Box for Kids this month. You can check it out on the post HERE. My son loved getting a surprise package in the mail.
During the school year they send home those Scholastic Book Club papers, where you can order books for your kids and help support the school. I remember as a kid getting my books from the Scholastic. At the time it was the only way to get books unless you had a store near you, which we didn’t. For my son I hadn’t order anything all year, but deiced that this is the last one coming, so I ordered the Dog Man Books and some Ninjago combo pack of books. My son likes both! He is a 6-year-old boy ^_^.
Next up I had a flower growing in my garden that I didn’t know what it was. I asked and everyone said an Iris, well when it bloomed it was an Iris. It’s a leftover from the previous home owner and I’m glad I kept watering it, so I could enjoy.
Mother’s Day was in May and my hubby and son got me KLASK: The Magnetic Game of Skill. It’s fun!!
