Welcome summer even though it’s already too hot for me. Hoping the cold front that is supposedly coming this weekend is really coming. I am excited to be sharing a wrap up post especially in June because that means that I’m having a baby next month! We are in the final countdown and this is getting real, friends.
May was a great month for me for both reading and blogging.
Now I am actually caught up with reviews and hoping to do a bit of prep blogging for when baby comes, and I take a little blogging vacation to recover and snuggle our newborn.
I finished 6 books in May.
I also published 6 reviews.
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo
Merci Suárez Changes Gears by Meg Medina
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien
The Green Ember by S. D. Smith
Hamlet by William Shakespeare
The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman
I also published one book list this month:
7 Books to read if you love The Help
In June, I will try to keep my motivation up as I move towards my due date.
I hope to finish these three books that are very different from each other.
I hope to read my next Classics Club selection which is #45 on my list!
It would be great to read a Newbery winner this month. Here are some options.
Otherwise, it’s mostly reading for fun this month because any reading is bonus right now. We hope to start a new read aloud book this month and I have some Newbery Honor books I’m excited about.

I just finished America’s First Daughter. It is about Thomas Jefferson’s oldest daughter. I am now reading The Song Of Arcadia. It is a 10 part series. I am almost finished with book three. Will keep you and the baby in my prayers.

That sounds really interesting, Marilyn! Historical fiction like that can be so intriguing. I hope you are enjoying your series as well. And thank you so much. I really appreciate that 🙂
I am reading book two of five in the series. The Heirs Of Acadia A few years ago I read the five books in The Song Of Acadia. The French settled in Acadia until England took over and rid it of the French.
Keeping you and the baby in my prayers.
Sounds like a fascinating series, Marion! I hope you are enjoying it. And thank you so much. I appreciate that 🙂
