May Monthly Chit Chat

May News

Seriously. It has been that crazy.

I talked about the flooding in Texas in my Sunday Post, and you can read more about it in this article to get better insight.

School is *almost* over! However, not for me. I signed up to teach summer school, which starts next week. Blaaaaahhh! I know, I know. Stupidest idea ever…but not for my bills. 🙂 I hope it’ll be fun and a great learning experience for the kids.

May was a whirl. So many things going on at school, and the kids were just done. Thankfully book clubs held their attention spans (at least for some), and all the projects and grades have gone in. There were some who were stressing and down to the wire at the last minute, and I was definitely stressed all last week.

We are winding down the year. Three more school days, two with kids!

Reading Challenges

Goodreads — I have surpassed my goal of 52 books, but I’m still keeping track. At the end of May I clocked in at 83 books.

NetGalley —  I’ve completed 3 – about to be 4 – out of 50 NetGalley books. It’s pathetic, I know. This summer I’m going to be blowing through these. I want all of them read and reviewed. I feel like it’s been a weight burdening me down.

Shelf Love — I surpassed this one, too. I’m going for double or nothing. My original goal was 31-40 books, so I’m shooting for 80! I met my goal in April! May brought my total to 64 books.

TBR Pile — I also met my TBR Pile goal. I’ve surpassed my goal of 50 books and finished 69 books in May.

BINGO — I have completed 13 of the 24 squares, and I am listening to Great Expectations on audiobook for my Classic square!

Alphabet Soup  — I still haven’t gotten any further on this one. N, Q, U, and Y titles are still needed.

Book Blog Discussion Challenge — I am winding down on this one. I thought my April and May discussions were good topics, but now I’ve kind of hit a dead end. I’ll be turning to some of the suggested topics for future discussions.
