Here we are, the first week of May coming to an end, and I still can’t believe it!! The thought that my son will be out of school next month for the summer is shocking. I can’t believe how quickly this year has been flying by!! At the same time, there are a few things in my life happening right now that feel like they’re taking forrrrreverrrrrrr to get here, so I guess that’s just how time works. LOL
Our weather has been pretty typical for us here. Lots of rain, temps in the 60’s, the usual springtime showers often. Usually it’s April that rains a lot, though this year it’s definitely feeling like May is going to be our rainier month. But if the showers bring the flowers, I’ll be a happy girl!
I’ve found so many awesome books lately!! New authors that I didn’t know I’d love so much, and I’ve even ventured out of my comfort zone when it comes to genres too! I’m definitely looking forward to my spring TBR!
Book Haul (For Review)
April’s Lit-cube theme was “You’ve Got Mail!” I wasn’t sure which book we would be receiving, but when I saw it was Alex, Approximately I flipped out!! I adored this book!!! It’s definitely one of my favorite books this year. This box, as well as other prior boxes, are often available for purchase on the Lit-cube site, so be sure to check if you’d like to purchase one for yourself. May’s box is sold out now, but the theme for June has just been revealed as “Modern Cinderella”. How cool does that sound?!
You can use code “LOSTINLIT10” to save 10% off your first box!
