May is over so it's time to see how I did on my list. I feel like I didn't really get much reading done this month, so I definitely have a lot to do in June to try and get caught up (I'm way behind on Penguin First to Read books and haven't been able to connect my iPad mini to the internet for a couple months now just so I don't lose them). Hopefully I'll find myself a little more time to read in June.

I managed to get 12 books read and another book reviewed in May, which seems impressive, until you realize that most of those 12 books are illustrated children's books. I really didn't get much reading done in May. But hey, if you're looking for books to read with your children, check this list out! I resolve to do better in June. - Katie
