May in Review... Hello June!

I feel like I JUST wrote one of these posts.  May has FLOWN by.  We went to yet another wedding (our wedding streak started in October... then one in December, January, March [in Jamaica!], April, May [just this past Friday], and we have one in June - Oh.. and October.  Between all those and the plethora of baby showers I've been to in the past 12 months [4] and wedding showers [2], I'm really surprised we are making mortgage payments. lol), we had house guests in our new guest room, I opened a store on Etsy to sell my travel photos and paintings (check the sidebar!), went to Disney World/Universal Studios in Orlando, I wrote maybe a couple of pages of my WIP, I won a B&N gift card in DL's 300 celebration, and I didn't lose any weight.

I read three books, which is the same number as in April, though 10 pages less, even though TWO of the books had 336 pages each... how FREAKY is that?!

May Books:

Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston (my first Faerie read) *4/5
Beastly by Alex Flinn *4/5
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins *5/5

Words read in May: 976
YTD: 6716

 How was your May?  Read any good books?  See any good movies (IRON MAN 2 ROCKS MY FACE OFF!)?

  1. HEX HALL is definitely on my to-read list. It sounds really awesome.

    I've just read MISTWOOD by Leah Cypess, and thought it was awesome. :)

  2. HEX HALL was a fantastic read! My books for June are Eat, Pray, Love... The forest of Hands and Teeth & Dead Tossed Waves. The month of May went by way to quickly for me!

    Looks like you'll be busy as a bee for the remainder of the year! Not to mention you've already been to a boat load! You're on a role girl!

  3. Sandy - I'll have to look into that. :)

    Jen - I JUST started reading The Forest of Hands and Teeth! Literally.. like, I'm on page 10. lol. A girl at work and I are reading it at the same time so we can talk about it. I guess Dead-tossed Waves will have to come next then, won't it? :)

  4. How do you manage to fit all that in? I'm jealous. Now I feel like I had a very lazy May :)

  5. Okay, so what did you think about Beastly? I was thinking about buying it the other day, you know, since it is going to be a movie but bought The Forrest of Hands and Teeth instead. I must know if I should order it now?! LOL

    You are one busy girl!

    Kim - I really liked Beastly. It was only like, $6 at borders for the paperback, but I'm sure the library has it. wink wink. ;)

  10. My boys liked Iron Man 2. I read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. Loved it! I didn't lose any weight either, AND I exercise 3-4 days a week. Bah! Happy shopping for all those gifts!

  13. Chris Evans told me he was terribly angry with you for saying you've never heard of him, so he asked me to send you a picture of his as a punishment for your sinful ways :)
