Month In Review | May 2012

Well ... it's the end of May, which means that summer is officially upon us! I read a TON this past month, and a quick recap is definitely in order. Thanks to Crystal at Just Another Book Lovin' Girl for inspiring me to do these monthly updates. :)

Favorite book(s) this month?
After reading SO MANY incredible books it's hard to choose a favorite, but if I had to choose, I would say Wish You Were Here by Beth Vogt and My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade. As far as a historical favorite? I think The Ride of Her Life by Lorna Seilstad. BUT . . . they were ALL so great!

Other Noteworthy Posts / Happenings
  •  This has been the month of memes it seems. I just like them. I think they're fun, and I enjoy visiting others who link up. What do you guys think about memes?
  • I posted the first "Getting to Know You" post. Be watching for another one soon.
  • And, I posted the first (and possibly only) "Review in Haiku." What did you think?
