Shabby Sunday

collage-2017-08-10-51

I have a bunch of old vintage books and continue to acquire more. One of my plans when  starting this blog was to do a post every now and then sharing one of my cherished vintage books. I figured there might be other book bloggers out there with some vintage books, heirlooms, or maybe some old books from childhood that they might want to share.

This meme titled ‘Shabby Sunday’ is for those who would like to participate and share some of their old vintage books. Do you have some shabby books you’d like to share? If so, please feel free to participate as anyone can join. Feel free to use my meme image if you’d like to. If you decide to do this meme, please consider linking back to me in this post so that I can see the book you’re sharing.

May Wrap-up 2021 #Books #BookReviews #MayWrapUp #Music

Seriously, I can’t believe it’s June already! May went so fast for me. It wasn’t a super productive month as far as reading due to all the outdoor work and planting that needed to be done. We also had a wonderful reunion with a good friend of the family and his little daughter. We hadn’t seen them in over a year due to the pandemic. The kids were like in another world. I’ve also spent a little more time streaming and watching true crime videos on YouTube. That can take up a considerable amount of time if you let it.

So, now that all of our planting is complete, I’m hopeful I’ll be able to get more reads in for June. I’ve also decided to slow down on my NetGalley reads because I’ve requested too many at once. Reading a handful of books with late publication dates always slows down posts for the blog because I just went back to requesting ARCs a few months ago. I’d like to keep my ARCs manageable so I don’t have too many deadlines. It stresses me out to have too many waiting, and right now I have five NG reads on my list.

So, let’s see how May turned out!

In May I only reviewed 4 books; one was for Shabby Sunday, but I did have a few other reviews on Goodreads for books that will post this week. I’ll include those for June, which will likely be a much more productive month.

Late March/April Wrap-Up #Books #BookReviews #Music #ReadingChallenge

It’s hard to believe we’re coming into May! This month flew for me. Now that the weather is warming up and all the snow is gone, it’s been a pleasure to spend more time outside in nature. I’m feeling very positive about the upcoming growing season too.

I returned to blogging the second half of March. Because I missed that wrap-up, I’m going to combine everything I’ve posted since coming back. I’ve had a few good months and feel really good about being back here in the blogging community again, especially now that I’ve figured out the block editor. 🙂

Regular Book Reviews from March-April:
