May 2015: Recap & Wrap-Up!


Once again, the month flew by. With BEA (and friend-visit) preparations, I totally forgot that May was actually ending… oops. So my May recap is here but a bit late! I’ve mostly just been trying to catch up on some reading here  and there with no huge goals in sight. The TBR pile is, of course, never-ending so I’ve been aiming at making a dent in a few ARCs and so far, it’s gone well!


  • Number of Books Read: 9 — a pretty good month for making it through books!
  • Popular Search Terms:  “books like divergent” and “books like if I stay” // “lunar chronicles character quiz” // “books about best friends falling in love” // “anna and the french kiss”
  • More Amusing Search Terms: “i loved this book. what is like it?” (I’m confused?)  // “young adult books inspired by disney movies” (Yes!) // “today is the day your sister is coming and your’e over much excited” (I don’t even know what this means!)
  • Most Referrals (non-social media): Perpetual Page Turner, Rather Be Reading, Oh, the Books!
  • Where My Blog Most Often Leads You (non-internal/social media)Books Take You Places, Andi’s ABCs, Tripping Over Books



Other Reviews Posted

  • I really enjoyed Trish Doller’s latest book, THE DEVIL YOU KNOW. It hit my mystery/thriller sweet spot!
  • LAST YEAR’S MISTAKE by Gina Ciocca sounded like a total “me” book… But I didn’t QUITE connect with it.
  • I just fell head over heels for THE NAME OF THE WIND by Patrick Rothfuss. I’ve already started the second book and I’m so in love!
  • I read the second book in Lynne Matson’s Nil series and NIL UNLOCKED was just so much fun!
  • Sadly, I had a few DNFs this month (some months in the making) and I added one mini-review to the mix in a quick wrap-up of mini-reviews/reports!
  • Sometimes I have a hard time with full reviews so I came up with a new review style for some mini reviews called “10 Things I Felt About…” The first one was for PETER AND THE STARCATCHERS!

    Great month you had 🙂 Loved your posts this month, I took a look at the best friend turned boyfriend list & added a bunch to my TBR!

    Hope this month is just as amazing 🙂

    I think people who searched “what’s like it?” were looking for “Like This? Try That!” suggestions!

    Have a lovely Jun Brittany!

    Looks like you had an awesome month. Those unusual search terms made me laugh. No one ever types in random, funny things to get to m blog. Ha
