May Monthly Wrap-Up

Wow! I can't believe how quickly the month of May has gone by. It seems like just a week ago it was Mother's Day. The end of the school year is one of the busiest times for me. It seems like I haven't had much time to read this month; but looking back at the reviews for May, I guess I can say that I have managed to find a few moments for reading. 

Here is my May Wrap-Up:  

Reviews -- May 

Zombies vs Unicorns by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier.
Any Witch Way by Annastaysia Savage
Relic Master: The Dark City by Catherine Fisher
The Lens and the Looker by Lory Kaufman

My 100 Follower Giveaway (which ends JUNE 1st... just in case you want to enter)
My very first giveaway EVER which was generously provided  by Daisy Piper, the author of the new Princess Callie series. Which, BTW, is an adorable new fairytale series that you all should read.


R.A.K.-- May

Thanks to Book Soulmates for creating and hosting this awesome monthly meme. R.A.K. is a great opportunity to fulfill your karma quota by sending a fellow book lover something off of their wish list.

I'm new to participating in R.A.K. so my R.A.K. is on the small side. Training bra size, really. BUT it's growing. This month I was able to send out a little book love to two fellow bloggers.

I sent a signed copy of A Tale of Two Castles by Gail Carson Levine to Misty at The Book Rat.

I also sent a copy of Crime and Punishment and a heaping ton of Faulkner books to Moonlight Reader. Just for fun I added some ARCs of more "manish" books that I probably wouldn't get around to reading for a looooong time. I hate the thought of books sitting unloved on my shelf when they could have a happy home with someone else.  

So, double score for me because I managed to clear off an entire section (small cube) of my bookshelf. Which, by the way, made room for new books! =)

Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America. In an attempt to find a way to exhibit Cassandra’s work at the 1883 World’s Fair, they break into the Inventors Guild—and…
