May Wrap-Up 2018

For some reason I feel like I read a lot more in May then I really did. Seven books isn't bad but it felt like more. Sadly, there weren't any 5 star reads either. That's always a bummer. Oh well. May was eventful. My husband and I took a short vacation to our happy place; the Oregon coast and then less then two weeks later, spontaneously drove back for Memorial Day weekend.


How can this not be our happy place?! It's so beautiful! Anywho, I listened to two audiobooks on the drive which made it a tinsy bit more bearable but, dude, that's a LONG drive. Flying is much better. Here's my books.

Being Friends With Boys by Terra Elan McVoy, Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Allbertalli, Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore, Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Allbertalli, Finnikin of the Rock my Melina Marchetta, Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin and Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. 

Favorite of the month was Being Friends With Boys. Least favorite was Finnikin of the Rock.

  6. Oh my gosh that place looks beautiful! I actually enjoy long drives, depending on who's with me. If my 4 year old is with me, he's generally pretty good but get's super restless. But if it's just me and hubby we usually blast music and sing the entire time.

    I haven't read any of those books, but a few are on my TBR

    1. I’ve never been a road trip person so it’s a bit torturous for me.

  10. I have only been to the west coast once (Disneyland). I hope to get out there and see the Pacific Northwest, because it is really beautiful.

  11. Oregon is one of the few states I haven't been to yet and it looks absolutely gorgeous! I'm hoping to take a trip there (and to Washington state!) soon :)
