Monthly Book Report ~ Month 4 of Year 2019… Good on Reading!

Posted May 7, 2019 by Michelle in Monthly Book Report / 4 Comments

When I started this post I was going to write that I didn’t do so well this month with reading but 6 books is pretty good so YAY! I have been on a Madison Faye kick the last few weeks and even this month hasn’t really broken me of that. They are short, HOT and just so fun to read. I am really enjoying her books and she just came out with a new series so I need to add that to my list of series to start/finish of hers.

I listened to an Audiobook this month also, I have a hard time listening to them but I actually enjoyed it so I plan to try and do at least one audiobook a month and then read a physical and ebook at the same time. Not sure how that will work but you never know, might get me reading a lot more.

Finding the balance for everything again has been a struggle but it’s getting better. Just need to stay out of my head. 🙂 Visits haven’t going as well as I would like but I am hoping to start working on that and try to do at least if you visit I visit back, if I can find a flow I will try and keep it going to more visits but sometimes life just gets so crazy! 🙂
