May Wrapup

Wow!  I can't believe May is over already!  It has been a super crazy busy month and all kinds of things have been going on.  I  participated in two 5K races and will start training for my second 1/2 marathon next week.  Yippee!  I also will be changing jobs and my new job starts on Monday.  Yippee again!  I am really excited as I have not been happy at my current job for pretty much the entire time I have been here.  I am looking forward to starting a cake decorating class next month which should be fun.  I haven't done any decorating since the fall and I really miss it.  So June looks like it's going to be a great month!

I read a lot this month.  I finished 12 books which puts me at a total 57 books read for the year.  I am kind of disappointed in myself since I only read 3 books off my shelf and for some reason I keep picking up more library books and books from NetGalley.  But I am going to try not to sweat it.  I would love to read more of the books I own but they just haven't been calling to me and I don't want to force myself to read something I am not in the mood for.  I am doing really well with working on my reading challenges and should finish the Historical Fiction Challenge in June.  Overall, May has been a great reading month!

Here is what I read:

1.) The King's Concubine by Anne O'Brien
2.) The Law of Dreams by Peter Behrens
3.) Moloka'i by Alan Brennert
4.) Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
5.) The Terror by David Andress
6.) Pretty in Plaid by Jen Lancaster
7.) The Secret Keeper by Sandra Byrd
8.) The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
9.) Jeneration X by Jen Lancaster
10.) Days of Splendor, Days of Sorrow by Juliet Grey
11.) Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
12.) The Second Duchess by Elizabeth Loupas
What books did you read in May?  Any fun plans for June?


  1. Ah! I haven't stopped by in a while. So sorry for that! You kicked butt and took names in May! 12 is awesome sauce!! I have the issue with getting more books from the library instead of reading what I have purchased.

    1. I am kind of surprised I got through 12 books. May was crazy busy!
