may round up

The May Round Up is finally here! I had tried to post it at the end of May right before I left for Chicago last weekend, but I was having some issues with my WordPress site that prevented me from doing so. Thanks to the WordPress gods (aka moderators), my blog is officially back on its feet and shouldn’t be crashing again anytime in the future. Thus, the May Round Up is arriving during the first week of June. Sorry about that!

This month I indulged in way more audiobooks than normally because I’ve been listening to them while walking and running around the absolutely beautiful Prospect Park. My listening will probably decrease as soon as it gets cold again, but I’m hoping to spend as much time outside and listening to audiobooks as I can for the foreseeable future.

Without further adieu, here is a round up of May’s book reviews, books acquired, and backlogged book reviews.

  1. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon (I meant to post this during May, but it’s scheduled to be posted soon!)

  3. The Body Project: An Intimate History of American Girls by Joan Jacobs Brumberg

Are there any books in the May Book Haul that I absolutely need to read soon? I received The Book of Life from a Penguin giveaway (!!), but I haven’t read the previous books in the series yet, so I’ll need to acquire those before I can dive into the book I won. Have you read this series before?

I also won another giveaway (!!!) from Random House, but I can’t announce the details of that contest just yet. Looking forward to telling you about it soon!

      I was having some weird WordPress issue where my blog was stored as a duplicate in their system which kept causing my site to crash every other day. Very strange problem, but I’m happy they helped me sort it! If you notice any wonky issues in the future, let me know 🙂

        How bizarre. I ended up just adding your blog to my other rss feed to bypass it but I will keep you posted for any other issues
