This month was a bit tough for me. It was Oliver’s first birthday and we couldn’t really celebrate. We did do a zoom smash cake party but it just wasn’t the same. My birthday was three days later and it was a rough one this year. My whole family always comes and spends the weekend, I was missing that. I haven’t seen my family since the beginning of March. I did read a lot because I just had to get away from the real world at times.
I read 31 books that totaled 9,868 pages. I am so pumped because I read my OwlCrate book for the month, all my Middle Grade TBR’s AND My two Book of the Month picks!!! The only thing is that I didn’t finish my buddy read, The Way of Kings. We both had a lot of life events this month and I finally decided to just go ahead and try to finish it the last week of May. My little one had a lot of fussy nights, so I didn’t get to finish it but I only have 300 pages left. It’s so good!
I have filled in letters E & X on my AtoZ challenge. I only have J, K, O, & Z left.
I’ve also read 30 books for my #startonyourshelfathon !!!
I participated in two Middle Grade readathons: Middle Grade MAYhem and Believathon! They were amazing and I got a good chunk of my MG shelf read. I also ended up purchasing a lot more. haha. I loved Believathon so much, Gavin made it a lot of fun!

I’m so glad to finally have read this one! It was an enjoyable one. 451
I really wish I liked this one more. It was just so underwhelming and quite boring. I didn’t like the characters and the plot was just all over the place. I did like the ending, so I added 1/2 a star for that. 406
I’ve had these on my shelves for so long. Glad to finally get to them! The illustrations inside are so good. 368
I liked this one a little bit better than the previous. I think it was because of our new characters. 368
This was a really cute one! 199
I can’t believe it but this is my first DNF for the year. This book was not good. I read 40% and I couldn’t keep going. I did review what I did read. 168

This was my first book for Believathon and it was just okay. I will continue the series, since I have them all. 221
I loved this one so much. It covers some intense subjects but so worth the read. I did find myself laughing too! 384
I own this whole series and it’s taken forever to pick them up again. They are long reads for middle grade but I really enjoyed this one. 544
This one was okay. The story took forever to get anywhere but once it did I enjoyed it. Not sure if I’ll pick up the rest. 368
A really cute middle grade about a boarding school for witches! 244
