Last year I designated August as an ARC reading month, so I figured I’d keep up the tradition and try to read mostly ARCs this month.  I am really trying to clear out the remaining old ARCs from NetGalley that I’ve been putting off.  Like been putting off since 2016… It is starting to be slim pickings.

Happy Sunday (almost Monday) bookworms!

How is everyone?  I WAS having a good day until this evening when we discovered that there is water leaking into our basement.  Oh yes.  Our brand new carpet is ripped up and in the process of drying as we speak.  Nothing ruins your Sunday feels more than a leaking basement.  Hence why this post is late.

Such is life right? Let’s talk books so I can forget about my basement woes…

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…
