This is the first month in a long time that feels like it hasn’t moved at warp speed. The sunshine found it’s way to Kentucky, and the temperatures have stayed at pleasant levels (even the heatwaves were welcome!) I have gotten a lot of reading done this month while exploring new mediums (audio- and e-books) and branching out into poetry.

Wrapping up this month, I knocked the following off my #TBR pile:

  1. The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer
  2. The Dogs I Have Kissed by Trista Mateer
  3. Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate
  4. F*ck Him! Nice Girls Always Finish Single by Brian Nox
  5. The Barefoot of Summer by Carolyn Brown
  6. Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
  7. Walden on Wheels by Ken Ilgunas
  8. For the Broken by Shenaia Lucas

I really enjoyed such a variety in reads this month, and can’t wait to share what’s coming down the pike in June!

Also, I wanted to point out two new additions to the blog this month. I recently got added to Shirley’s Book Blogger List, which currently houses over 200 book-blog site listings! If you are a book blogger who isn’t on the list, help Shirley grow the book-blog community by sending her an email to join the list! Check it out by clicking here, and then click on the image on the page! I also added a page with my book review and request policies, so if you were curious about that, please check it out here!

Along with that info, I wanted to give a huge shout out to all my super awesome readers who helped me reach my goal of 250 blog followers!

Now, instead of #booktags this month, I thought it would be kinda fun to share a few of my favorite photos from my family vacation, since you all heard so much about it the last two months!

Seaside Beach, perfectly calm and with very few people!

Leaving the bay to go deep sea fishing.

My dad and nephew, note my nephew holding onto my dad’s foot so they’d float together.

My sister, her boyfriend, and my mom celebrating mom’s hole-in-one playing mini-golf!

All in all, May has treated me well, and I hope that you all have enjoyed it too!
