Monthly Wrap-UP/Remembering May

Monday, May 31, 2010
Even though summer is officially twenty-one days away, for me summer is when I wave goodbye to the last bus load of students on the last day of school. 

May is always a busy month so as I look over what I accomplished I am actually surprised I did as well as I did.

15 Books Read and 9 Reviewed:

Storm Glass by Maria V. Synder
The Pigman by Paul Zindel
Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafron
Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork
We Were Here by Matt De La Pena
The Red Pyramid by Rick Riodan
Pyramid of Souls by Erica Kirov
The Red Umbrella by Christina Diaz Gonzalez
Morpheus Road: The Light by D. J. MacHale
The Cardturner by Louis Sachar
Suddenly Supernatural: School Spirit by Elizabeth Cody Kimmel
The Turning What Curiosity Kills by Helen Ellis  (reread)
Heist Society by Ally Cater  
School of Possibilities by Seita Parkkola 
Knife That Killed Me by Anthony McGowan (finished this in April but wrote the review in May)

I still need to do a lot better with writing reviews. Having all summer to read and write I should be able to do this. 
I am also making headway in most of my challenges.

 62/100 completed

62/75 completed

5/6 completed (one more to go)

8/15 completed

23/10 ( I completed this a while back but continue to add to it)

Of all the books I read this month my favorite hands down was The Morpheus Road: The Light by D.J, MacHale. I loved the mystery, the characters, and the tension that gripped me from start to finish. I cannot wait for the next book in this haunting tale.

Some great books on that list! I really, really want to read Marcello in the Real World. I just received Morpheus Road: The Light in the mail this week, so I hope to start it soon. Congrats on finishing your school year--We go until the 17th!!

13 books a month is a good record. With so much to do right now, I'd be lucky to read at least 5! :)

Will check out the books you've read.
