May 2019 Reading & Blogging Wrap-Up


Goodbye May & hello June!

May is always a hectic month for us, so I didn’t have high expectations in regards to reading and blogging.  Surprisingly, I finished 5 books off my May TBR and started the final book off the list.  I ended up reading 10 books in total in May!  Not bad considering everything that was going on.

Let’s see what I ended up reading in May…

Challenge Updates

Goodreads Challenge Update: 56/100 books in 2019


I know the picture says 57 books, but I finished Matilda in June and totally forgot to take a screenshot of my Goodreads Reading Challenge at the end of May.  Let’s just pretend it says 56 books ??

#YARC2019 Update:


I’ve read 12 books for #YARC2019 thus far!  I read 3 books in May that went towards this challenge: China Rich Girlfriend (Crazy Rich Asians #2), Darius the Great is Not Okay, and Rich People Problems (Crazy Rich Asians #3).  You can see my progress here ? Year of Asian Reading Challenge TBR + Progress Tracker #YARC2019

2019 Goals Update:

» 80% NetGalley feedback ratio = 15 backlist ARCs ? 6/15 books read

I read 2 books off my NetGalley ARC backlist!  I read Liar and Five Roses.

» 30 physical TBR books ? 11/30 books read

I read 1 book off my physical TBR: Darius the Great is Not Okay

» No buying new books ? Well…

So I had a Book Outlet order for some summer reading books and workbooks for my children and needed a few more books to hit the $35 dollar mark to get the free shipping… I did end up buying 2 Paper Mill Classics editions for Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility…  #BookBanFail

» Read long books I’ve been putting off ? 0/3

I’m starting to doubt I will ever even attempt this goal lol  The idea was to read one long book every 4 months, but here we are 6 months into the year and I’ve yet to pick any of the 3 long books on my 2019 TBR.
