It’s crazy to me that June has already arrived! This year is flying by!

May turned out to be one of my most productive reading months despite feeling like I was falling behind on my reading goals at several points throughout the month.

I finally finished A STORM OF SWORDS, which has been an amazing 2 month reading adventure. I’m so happy to be buddy reading these with a fabulous group that’s pushing me to keep going!

To sum up May: This month gave me a lot of new favorites that I’ll be pushing on everyone. Fans of horror or creepy or just those intrigued by medical experiments need LAKEWOOD now! Fans of YA and fantasy need to get on the RED RISING bandwagon with me (I know I’m super late to the party)! Those looking for some science fiction space horror should check out HELL ON MARS and join me in this crazy new-to-me series! Oh and…I read a romance book! Does ANNA K count as romance? Either way, I loved it and I’m planning to read another romance book in June…I know, I don’t know who I am anymore either!

Lots of reviews are hitting this space soon, so stay tuned for more thoughts on my May reads!

Cheers to June reading!
