May Confessions

Jamaica 2009
I can't believe May is coming to an end. We've been having a major heat wave here in Pennsylvania and it feels like summer!  I've really enjoyed this past month and my recent trip to the beach. I couldn't have asked for better weather either.

I am so excited to start June and you know what that means.....school's out for the summer! Yes, we teachers also have a summer countdown going!

Books Read in May:
1.  Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer Holm
2.  The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan
3.  The Boys Next Door by Jennifer Echols
4.  Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols
5.  Seventeenth Summer by Maureen Daly
6.  Gone with a Handsomer Man by Michael Lee West
7.  The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
8.  The Magnolia League by Katie Crouch (review coming soon!)
9.  13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson (review coming soon!)

May Top Five:
1.  Favorite Book:  I adored Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer Holm. I love all things Key West, so I especially enjoyed that aspect of it and The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen is also one of my favorites.

2.  Biggest Surprise:  The Boys Next Door by Jennifer Echols was definitely a surprise. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would and The Magnolia League was also pretty addicting.

3.  Biggest Letdown: I'd have to say Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols, because it unfortunately wasn't as good as The Boys Next Door.

4.  Favorite Post: My favorite post of this month would have to be the Beach Reads and Beach Bag Must Haves for the Summer Part I and Part II.  All of my favorite bloggers shared with me their expert opinions regarding summer reading!

5.  Favorite Part of May: Of course it was my trip to the shore over Memorial Day weekend.

See you guys in June!
