May 2013 – Review Recap!


This is the second month in a row that I’ve posted this feature, and I have to say it’s probably one of my favorites. Not only does it give you guys a chance to catch the reviews you missed, but it also allows me to reflect on all the stellar books I’ve been reading lately. I am now three months then to my commitment to only read the books at the top of my “must – read” list, leaving all of those “obligation” series for when there’s truly nothing exciting on my radar. I used to force myself through books that I wasn’t enjoying, but no more! Because of this, I haven’t enjoyed reading this much since I was a kid. Long story short, I’m not picking a favorite this month – there were too many good ones!

As a side note, I’ve also created a review archive with links to all the books I’ve reviewed since I started the blog (separated by genre, of course) which I will be updating periodically.

IMG_2113q1 This also happened to be the month that all my blogging dreams came true: one of my reviews was shared by my all-time favorite author, Richelle Mead. My first instinct was to play it off as if this sort of thing happens to me all the time; but who am I kidding? It is seriously the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me and made all of the blood sweat and tears I pour into this blog worth every moment!

There you have it – my adventures in May! There were couple of books that didn’t quite work for me for various reasons, but on the whole, this was a stellar month of reading! I cannot remember the last time I read so many five-star books in a month. What books were at the top of your list?
