May in Review

Since when does May mean summer? It was hot here in Michigan and that meant outdoor activities! Well, sort of. There was a lot of ice cream, bon fires, and of course reading outside. I spent a lot of time with friends! I contused my downward spiral into majesty that is Orphan Black! 

Honestly May felt so long. I didn't have any big events going on and even Memorial Day weekend fell flat. I have a lot of plans coming up in June and I really spent the last five weeks wishing it were later in the year. Now that I look back the month wasn't so bad, just uneventful, and you know what, after what I've seen in 2014 uneventful isn't so bad.

If nothing else May was a great month for reading. After a few months of struggling to find a balance between reading, life, and sometimes writing everything seemed to click into place within the last 31 days. It helped that I discovered some amazing new authors, fell in love with a new series and found a slew of unused Barnes and Noble giftcards. I didn't even realize I was only reading female authors to just now. Overall I'm really proud of my reading for May. Hopefully June will be just as good.

Hi! A couple of things, 1. I love how you keep track of your books that you've read! And 2. I didn't know you were from Michigan! I am too!!! If you don't mind me asking, where from Michigan are you from?
