Hello bookish friends!
I am so relieved to finally be in May! Did April drag on for anyone else? I felt like we would never get out of it. So glad that the end is in sight for our unconventional home school year. And looking forward to all the big changes for our family this summer.
While I felt like it lasted forever, April was actually a very productive and fun book month for me. Here’s how it played out!
I finished 6 books.
I started 2 books.
I published 10 reviews!! This is a crazy big number for me! So glad to be more caught up!
The Midwife’s Apprentice by Karen Cushman
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
Self Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai
The Solid Grounds Coffee Company by Carla Laureano
The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis
The Lady of the Lake by Sir Walter Scott
The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood
Front Desk by Kelly Yang
I also published one book list.
I hope to keep up my reading enthusiasm in May. While also trying to keep up my energy as my third trimester marches on.
I plan to finish Crime and Punishment and potentially my next Classics Club read. That deadline is fast approaching!
I plan to finish my current Newbery winner and start another.
And I’m hoping to read this eclectic list of books. Included here are a read aloud with my kids, a few Newbery Honor books, and a book I just discovered this month.
And here’s hoping I can keep the pace on my blogging! I’d be quite happy with 5 reviews and 2 book lists for the month. But we’ll see how my motivation continues.
What are you reading in May?
