Monthly Wrap Up [May in Review]

MonthlyWrapUp.jpg

It’s been a lousy month of reading. I hate to say it but I’m kind of in a reading slump. I only finished one book in May and the 3 books I’m currently reading are taking me forever to get through! I’m hoping to finish the three I’m currently reading and then find something that will grab my reading attention again 🙂 Any suggestions while I’m talking about it?

Monthly Wrap-Up: January in Review

Reading Goals for March:

Finish Rapture of the Deep and How to Catch a Prince

Read 4-5 Books

Post 3-4 Book Reviews

Books to Read in March:

I’m disappointed that I didn’t post very many book reviews or posts this month. I’ve just been really busy and with a computer that is very temperamental, it’s hard to make it behave long enough to write reviews and posts on my blog. It’s my goal to catch up on all my reviews within the next couple months and then start posting them on a regular basis.

Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I read in February. Check back soon for more Book Lovin’!
