May Recap (I had a Great Month!)

This year is flying by!! I can't believe it's June!! Where has the year gone. I think I had a pretty good month on the blog. All of the book titles will bring you to my review. I did awesome towards my Goodreads challenge, but not quite so great on my other challenges.




Wow!! 15 books this month. It would have been more, but I hit a rough patch and was in a tiny reading slump. Then I took 2 days on a book that ended up being a DNF. I think I did super awesome, and I don't anticipate keeping up this pace, but I will sure try!

I read 15 books towards my Goodreads challenge of 125 books which puts my total at 69. (some of those were actually short stories so according to my count I am actually at 67, but still doing awesome!!)

I am no longer participating in the Debut Author Challenge, but I think that 5 of the books I read are Debut Authors, which I do still want to keep track of. (That would bring my total to 6 for the year which I had said between 11 and 16)

I read 3 towards the Sensational Seconds Challenge which puts my total at 8 I believe and that is exactly how many I set as my goal I think. I should really update my Sensational Seconds Page lol!!

I didn't read any towards my TBR pile challenge. Here I was at the beginning of the year thinking I was so going to rock at that one, and I am a total fail at it. *sigh* I will try to get to some, really. I hate to fail at things.

Overall I think I had a pretty great month. I had a few blog tour stops, cover reveals and some other random stuff. I am hoping to keep up the pace, but really, I think this was a really epic month for me. I also reached over 300 followers on the blog this month too!! I can't even tell you how excited that makes me. I totally love all of you guys whether you are followers or not. I read every comment and you all make me so happy!!

  1. Yay great month, Amy! We read a lot of the same thing. I also just bought Possession by Elana Johnson it was 5$ at Chapters and S&S sent me the sequel so I figure why not. The reviews are all over the place though. And congrats on 300 followers!! :D

    1. I am amazed at how much I actually got accomplished. I felt like I wasn't really getting a lot done, but apparently I was lol!!

  3. You had an amazing month!!! 15 books is incredible. These recaps are great because as bloggers, we're always focusing on what we didn't do or what we still have to do, rather than on what we did.

    1. It really makes me feel proud of how much I actually accomplish. I am not a very fast reader, so to read 15 books in a month is awesome for me.

  4. Hey hon! :)
    Wow 15 books! I think I've only reviewed about 6-7 books on the blog last month, but that's because I was working like a bee on preparing my contemporary fic month :P Which BTW just kicked off! :D YAY!
    And no worries that you didn't totally rock the TBR pile challenge. I am the organizer and one of the hosts and yet I totally SUCK at it hahahah, oh well, what can you do with all these awesome new titles coming out?! :D

    Keep up the great work, sugah!

    1. Haha!! I was totally thinking I would do awesome at the TBR pile challenge, but NetGalley and so many awesome books coming our got the best of me lol!! For once I have actually been about a week ahead on my blog so I think that helps with getting reading done. I have tons more time to read when I don't have to worry about so many blog posts.

  5. Well it looks like you had a great month and got A LOT done! Yeah for you! Even with the DNF finish in there- you managed to read a ton. Hope June is another good month for you.

  6. 15 books is totally awesome!! I loved CoLS a lot. I'm totally failing at the TBR challenge too and I thought it would be easy as well!

    1. I hope to keep up that pace, but not likely. I couldn't believe I read 15 books.
