May Wrap Up

Around the Blogosphere:

Last month I only featured two posts, so to make up for it, I have ten this month!!

Black

Leslie @ Books are the New Black had her baby!!!! Everything went well and Mom and Baby are both happy and healthy ? Baby Oliver was born May 15th (I think) weighing 6lbs. 9oz and was 20in. long.

Metaphors

Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight talks about different types of retellings, and asks which ones you like best.

Jenn

Jenn @ Jenniely shares some tips and tricks on the best ways to request ARCs from publishers.

Pheonix

Amber @ The Literary Phoenix introduces us to three underused magical creatures with a lot of potential (Phoenixes, Gorgons, & Selkies – Oh My!)

Writer

Dani @ Perspective of a Writer shares 5 ways to start easy with bookstagram!

WTF

Lisa @ Way Too Fantasy wrote a rambling essay on why she loves Fantasy.

Weird

Margaret @ Weird Zeal rated cover changes (and we all know how much I love comparing different covers!)

Geek PlaceCameron

Cameron @ Cameron Writes wrote a guest post for Lisa @ Dear Geek Place where he talked about his favorite fantasy tropes.  He listed “The Grizzled Old Badass (probably dragged out of retirement)” as a trope, and I love it, and it is now my second favorite trope (right behind enemies to lovers)

ZeZee

Zezee @ Zezee with Books listed her top 5 favorite magical creatures, and her list included cats, which I totally agree with!

Beware

Sophie @ Beware of the Reader tries to predict your favorite genre based on your job! Its a super fun post, and you can tell she put a TON of work into it.


June

Currently Reading:

My goal was to read this last month and have it completed by the time the TV show was released, but I failed miserably, but I should be able to read it this month!

Up Next TBR

I received a copy of this from NetGalley, so I need to actually get to it sooner rather than later!

I am not going to do a tentative TBR this month, because I haven’t read any books from it in the last two months, so I am not even going to bother!
