It's the end of May and time to see how I did on my Read-A-Thon goal for the month. Spoiler alert, I didn't finish my list, in fact, most of the books I ended up reading weren't even ON my list. Of course that's partially because I forgot that I signed up for BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge which started in May, and I'm a mood reader. But without further ado, here's my rundown.

So in the end I only moved two books off my currently reading list, and I only moved four books off of my to be read list (although two of those were also finished, so that's a plus, right?) But I finished and reviewed eleven books last month, which is almost three books a week, and I'd say that's pretty darn good. I'm also over halfway done with three of the books that are still on my currently reading list, and hope to finish two of them tomorrow (so chances are I'll only finish one.) Stay tuned next month to see the insanity that is my list (really, it's going to be LONG!) - Katie 


  1. You did a lot better than me. I still need to make my list.

    1. If it makes you feel any better, one of my books was an illustrated kid's book :) - Katie
