May Recap!

Goodbye May.  This is completely cliche, but the month just flew by!  Rather than my previous "Favourites" post, I'm trying something new.  Let me know what you think and here is a recap of my not-so-exciting May!

Eight Books Read in May (with one word reviews!)

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken (what!)
Icons by Margaret Stohl (meh!)
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (asdfghjkl;1!)
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins (awesome!)
Shadow on the Sun by David Macinnis Gill (action!)
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick (Samantha!)
Fragments by Dan Wells (science-y!)
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson (emotions!)

Five Moments from May
--- I watch my old dance studio's annual recital.  I cried the whole way through, and can't believe that I haven't laced my fake pointe shoes for three years!
--- Managed to get the worst sunburn that I've ever had at work.  I can barely lift my arms.
--- Speaking of which, I've worked a lot, thanks to a coworker quitting.
--- I should mention that I work in a fry stand off the highway.  Hey, it's a paycheck in a small town where there aren't a lot of jobs to begin with.
--- I now remember why I hate online classes so much.  Turns out my easy class is a lot of work!

  1. How about three word summaries? ALSO I jumped on the Anna bandwagon behind you and am so happy I did. I am in luuuvvvvvvv

    1. I like that idea. I'll do that for June! And yay! I kind of love the Anna bandwagon and can't believe I didn't jump on it sooner!
