I also got a dog. His name is Oskar (like in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close) and he's an 8 week old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel/Bichon mix. Our older dog, Buddy, isn't overly thrilled by the new fur ball, but is adjusting. Anyway, I'm babbling about puppies. This isn't a puppy blog.
Without further adieu here is my May in Review post. As always, I took the template from the lovely Lily at Lily's Bookshelf.
This is Oskar. He has mastered the "I'm skeptical" look.

I'm starting to think my original goal of reading 75 books this year might be unrealistic with the start I got off to. Regardless, it's been a slow reading year for me. Hopefully this summer will help me to pick up my pace. I'm kind of sad I'm done with Harry Potter for a while, but it will probably be best for my friendships and my own mental health if I can talk about things that are Hogwarts related. Other than that everything's been pretty normal.
How was your May? Read any fantastic books? Let me know!
