Monthly Reflections (#5) ~ May


Photobucket

Monthly Reflections, where we take the time to reflect on the previous month.

My goals for May were...

Read 10 books
Read at least 1 eBook
Read two "Just for Fun" books (one being Nightmare by Robin Parrish)
Read a book starting with the letter "E"

In May, I...


Read 12 books - including:
3 non-fiction books
2 eBooks (Flirting with the Forbidden and Unfriend Yourself)
3 "Just for Fun" books (Nightmare, Loving, and Divergent)
Did not read a book starting with the letter "E"


I am very happy with the amount of books I read! I hope I'm able to do the same in June. :) I can hardly believe I read THREE "Just for Fun" books - the majority of books I read are review books and how I was able to read three books that I didn't get for review in May, I don't know... :| In June, I plan on getting my review book TBR stack down in size, so I'm hoping I'll be able to read a LOT! :)


Books read:


Gone to Ground: A Novel

My favorite fiction book was Gone to Ground by Brandilyn Collins - Nightmare by Robin Parrish was very gripping though and a close second from this list. :)

My favorite non-fiction book is a tossup between Praying for Your Future Husband and Flirting with the Forbidden. I loved both of those books and while there were a few things in Flirting with the Forbidden that I didn't like, it did make me think a LOT.

1 "Just for Fun" book
1-2 eBooks
Read a book starting with the letter "E"

  2. Your two favorite non-fiction books look very interesting! Two great "E" books are Expectations and Evasions by Melanie M. Jeschke - books 2 and 3 in the Oxford Chronicles series. Here's my monthly reflections.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~ Philippians 4:8
