May Wrap Up

Hello!  I know I've been MIA lately but I'm hoping to start coming back slowly!  Thank you for your patience with me.

May was an awesome reading month!  I read 11 books which is a TON for me especially considering May was so busy.  I guess it helped that I reread several Laura Ingalls Wilder books and those are pretty easy to read.  I have now read 38 books this year; I'm almost halfway to my goal of 80!  I read a wide range of books this month and it was really nice to just kind of pick up what I wanted without the pressure of review books.

In addition to reading a lot in May, the hubs, toddler and I went to Colorado to visit my brother.  It was a really nice little trip and Julia did pretty good on the 8/9 hour car ride.  We also went to 4 kid's birthday parties, celebrated Mother's Day, the hubs' birthday and a friend's high school graduation and I made my first wedding cake.  It was kind of a whirlwind. June won't be quite as busy but we will be working on spring cleaning our house before Julia's 2nd birthday (!) at the end of the month.  She's still not sleeping great but we've kind of adjusted to it (even though it is really annoying at times).  Anyway, I'm glad May is over and looking forward to June and summer!

Here are my May numbers:
-11 books read
   -1 non-fiction
   - 6 historical fiction (I am now at 17/25 for the Historical Fiction Challenge)
   -0 review
   -6 library books
   -3 books I own (ebooks) - I'm not counting the Little House books I reread in this total

Next month I'll try to update where I stand with regards to my reading goals for the year since it will be the halfway point.
