14 books. I also go to meet author Judith B. Pinkard and she was wonderful! We got our new puppy, Sasquatch and I hope in June he will sit still long enough that maybe we can include him in some photos. We also had a preschooler that graduated and registered for kindergarten next school year. What a busy month! I read The Mister by E L James, The Midnight Dance by Nikki Katz, My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent, Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon, Guarded Dreams by L J Evans, Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane, Bible Promises For Moms by Heidi St John, The Invited by Jennifer McMahon, Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan, Broken Pieces by Judith B Pinkard, Falling For Fallon by S J Sylvis, and With The Fire On High by Elizabeth Acevedo. I normally strive for 20 books a month, didn’t quite get there this month but great thing is there is always next month! Do you strive for a number goal every month or do you just read without setting goals?
Wow April is over today and it’s less than a month from my kiddos being home for the summer! Yay!!!!!! I finished and reviewed 18 books in April and I am currently reading The Mister by E L James which I won’t get finished until tomorrow.

I’m wrapping up March with 15 books! While you are doing your wrap up posts for the month do you ever feel like, “I should have read more” ? I do. I mean 15 isn’t a terrible number but I my personal goal is 4 books a week……Im not close. Not yet….but I have faith and will continue to read until I reach that goal!
