What were your best and worst reads of May? Did you meet your reading goals? I was hoping to read 8 books this month, so I managed to reach mine, which surprised me, because it was a very busy month for me and I wasn’t sure if it would happen!

    1. I read My Lady Jane a while ago and I adored it. Have you gotten a chance to read it yet? You sure did get a lot from Netgalley! I really need to get on that and start requesting some books. I’m trying to dig myself out of the massive thrift store haul books. lol.

      I also just noticed that you go the Queen’s Poisoner. I love love LOVE the Kingfountain series! It’s super amazing!

      I had to lower my Goodreads challenge to 150, which is a lot more manageable for me. I managed to read 11 books despite being in a semi slump.

      1. I haven’t yet, no! I’ve heard it’s hilarious so I’m probably putting it on my July TBR – June’s is going to focus pretty heavily on ARCs, though. I love NetGalley! I’ve had a pretty good run of getting approved for most of the titles I’ve requested, so that’s nice. Hey, 11 is fantastic! What are your numbers like when you aren’t in a slump?

        1. From what I’ve looked at, Netgalley looks pretty bomb! I think the most I’ve done so far was 17. I read whenever I’m at work so I have a lot of time. lol. Thank you, though! 😀
