May Wrap-Up: Reviews, Reading Challenges, etc.

Big thanks to May for finally pulling me out of reading/blgging slump. I finally feel like I’m back to my old self again!

Nothing real exciting happened to me this past month, other than just work. Kids, never grow up and get a real job. If Peter Pan comes calling, then you better take your ass over to Neverland and have a good time for me! 😉

  1. Awesome list! I’m planning on reading A Court of Thorns and Roses this summer, and hopefully I can get through the entire series.

    I’m new to blogging and book reviewing, and am very impressed by your blog. I was wondering if you had any tips for newbie bloggers and book reviewers.

    If you have the time, please check out my blog @breenysbooks. I’d love any feedback. Have a wonderful day.

    1. Thanks! I hope you enjoy that trilogy, it’s really good!!!

      The best tip I can give you is just find your own flow. Post whenever you want and about whatever you want. I started off worrying about how many followers I was getting and views, etc. but once I stopped worrying about that, it got so much better. Just have fun with it! Also, interact with other bloggers because you’ll end up meeting some amazing people! Good luck! 😊
