May is HOPEFULLY the last month that I won’t have a ton of time for blogging because after this coming Monday, I will not have any more homework! At all! Because I’m finishing my degree! No more essays! Yay! I’ll have more time and energy for blogging-writing, so hopefully I’ll be doing more blogging along with my reading in my spare time. I have a lot of catching up to do!

Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson — 4 of 5 stars
I’m keeping track of all of these that I’m marking “review forthcoming” even if I don’t get them done right away. I swear.
- Number of books read: 12 (including 1 DNF)
- Number of nonfiction books: 1
- Number of ARCs: 6
- Number of books by marginalized authors: ~9
- Number of books read for class: 1
- Number of library books: 2
I’ve still been keeping on-par with the number of books I’ve been reading! I’m getting through ARCs and new releases and checking out fewer library books in favor of the books I’ve already read, so on the reading front I’m doing great! Reviewing is another story… I’m working on it. June will be better.
On The Personal Side…
My life right now is basically 1.) finishing up my last two assignments for all of my degree, and 2.) job-hunting. I am tired, but I am trying. I will have more of a life in June and will have more of a personality to talk about stuff with…
How was your May? Are you looking forward to anything special in June?
