My Favorite Books of Spring 2019

Friday is the first day of summer! (And the last day of school for us.) I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am about this. Summer is my favorite. It's so relaxing. I get so much reading and writing done in the summer (and there is no homework to nag about every day, either). To kick off our summer, let me tell you about my favorite books of spring 2019.

Ever since Violet had gotten her backstage passes to a Bon Jovi concert for her twenty-ninth birthday, Leah had been trying to find the perfect gift for her friend. A Caribbean cruise in her…

Books to Read in June

I have a confession to make...I didn't finish all the books on my Books to Read in May list. In fact, I only read one of the five books. I put way too many books on my library reserve list and they ALL came in at the same time. So of course, I had to read those first, right. Anyway, for my Books to Read in June, I'm going to have to finish my May list AND a whole list of books to read in June. That'll be NINE books. How am I going to read all of those books in one month??? I'll Have to Cheat A Little on My Books to Read in June Translation: Audiobooks. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's not reading in the traditional sense, but it's the only way I'm going to get through a massive amount of books in the month of June. Plus, we…
