Monthly Recap = April & May

I could have sworn I did a Monthly Recap post for April, and only just now discovered that all I really have is a saved draft of my template, not even filled in! Ugh. So I’m combining April and May this time, which should also make my reading tallies look a bit less pitiful. Work has pretty much taken over my life these days and the only reason I get any reviews posted at all is because of book tours (an unexpected side-effect!).

Books Read in April & May: 10 including:

    Adult Novels: 7
    Children’s/YA Novels: 3
    Picture Books (new): 0 (refers to new, bought picture books, not re-reading old ones or library copies – which I do a lot of!)
    Non-Fiction: 0

Total Books in My Library as of End of May: 3761
Total Books Added to My Library in April & May: 26 (look how good I’ve been!) including:
