April18WU

Happy May bookworms!

Even though we are only 3 days into the month of May, things are already looking up from April.  After 6 LONG months of a hard winter, warmer weather seems to have arrive in Ohio.  Time to break out the shorts & t-shirts and put away the coats & sweaters.

April was an off month for me.  I definitely didn’t get as much accomplished as I had hoped, both in regards to reading & blogging.  Actually, April was my smallest reading month thus far this year.  I read a total of 7 books, which is a tad under my average of 10 books per month.  Despite not having a big quantity reading month, I did have a good quality reading month.  I even handed out four 5-star ratings!  If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I am not one to hand out 5-star ratings lightly.

Which books received the coveted 5-star rating? Read on to find out…

BlackHistory2018

I had a killer reading month in February, knocking out 15 books!!!  Not only that, but I stuck with my February TBR for the most part and read 6 out of 7 books.  I’d call that a success 🙂  I’ve been good about sticking to my monthly TBR lists thus far in 2018, so here’s hoping I can keep up the momentum in March.

Let’s see what I am planning on reading this month…

Happy Sunday bookworms!

I hope I find that everyone had a good weekend?  My husband took a trip out to California with his brothers, so I was flying solo here at home with the kids.  I can say that I definitely have a new respect for single parents, and parents whose spouses travel a lot for work.  You all are heroes for what you do!  Since I was a little busy this last week, I am behind on blog hopping, but I plan to start catching up with everyone this week.

Let’s see what I did get accomplished this week…
