For the month of May, I read 13 books! Not as many as I was hoping to read, but I still had a pretty good month and I'm pleased. I don't predict June to be a great reading month. My husband is coming home from Afghanistan mid-June and then we are going to Florida right after that for some job fairs and job interviews. While we are there, we will be going to Busch Gardens where I will proceed to have a slot meltdown just like Kristen Bell and then we are going to spend 2 days on St. Pete Beach. So that should be really fun. I plan to take a bunch of books with me and I will be blogging from the vacation (I am just that dedicated) but probably not as much.
Onto the books I read this month. Links to my reviews can also be found here.

Average Star Rating: 3.461
Paradise by Jill Alexander, Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok, Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready, The Dark Tower by Stephen King, and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. I probably should have read more review books, but I was happy to read some books I have wanted to read for awhile.
For the 50 States Challenge, I did so well!! I managed to read in 6 States!!
The states I completed are Maryland (Shade), Colorado (Monument 14), Wisconsin (Lies Beneath), New Mexico (Fated), Florida (The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer), and Kansas (Dust Girl). I have to go add those to my challenge page. I'm excited!! I probably STILL won't finish all 50 States, but I sure am having fun trying. I can't imagine having a better month than this last one, but you never know. I can't wait to see where I get to read next, if anywhere. Some of these states are HARD to find. Maybe towards the end of the year, if I am close, I will individually pick books so I can finish the challenge.
As always, if you have a wrap-up post you want to tell me about or have me come comment on, leave me the link in the comments. And if you just feel like saying "hi," that's great too. Have a great June!!
