Confessions of An Addict [39]: Falling Behind and May Reads

DSC00173


 

It’s June 1st! Almost halfway through 2015, y’all. The passing of time is always a such a surprise to me. I can’t figure out why. Perhaps it’s because January doesn’t seem like forever ago, but just mere days. Here we are, six months to the day.

May was a good reading month. Not quite as great as April was, but I’m still way ahead of my reading goal. I’m working on my 95th book of the year (reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell). I read 17 books and am currently 33 books ahead of schedule. I didn’t quit on any books this month (hasn’t since 2015 started), but I did have a couple of 1-star reads.

I’ve been stalling writing a review for An Ember, mostly because I know it’ll be a scathing, ranting one. I really don’t have the energy to expend on writing a negative review at the moment. So perhaps it will remain unreviewed on the blog.

I finally started my quest on catching up with In Death series by J.D. Robb, and I’m happy to say that I’m glad I decided to take up this endeavour. It’s fantastic! I’ve read quite a few wonderful books in May, but if I had to pick the best one, I have to say it’s Made You Up by Francesca Zappia. I don’t have a review written for it yet, but I promise to post it some time in the next few days. Here’s the rest of the books I read last month:

Unfortunately, I’ve fallen behind on the blogging front. I’ve drafted only one post for next week this weekend. I usually have the week planned ahead of time, but I had quite a busy Saturday. I’m also a little behind on commenting. Please bear with me!

In other news…

I’m going to make a concerted effort to curb down purchases next month. I’m hoping there won’t be too many good books coming out in June. I’m also going to take advantage of my relationship with a few publishers who know my existence and perhaps request books that I absolutely want to read instead of always resorting to “panic-request”. Also, I’ve been really good with my Net Galley books, so perhaps I’ll take advantage of that one as well.

As a result, you may only see one or two Hoarders post this month instead of weekly. I think that if I train myself to do a monthly haul post instead of weekly, I will be able to avoid bookstore shopping every week.

June Releases I’m excited for:
