Thoughts: Wow, after listing these, I hate to toot my own horn but I'm kind of impressed by how many books I read and reviewed, especially with all that homework and stuff. Schools coming to a close and I have time to read 10-ish books.. no wonder I'm stressed out :P Please check out these reviews if you haven't already!
My favourite May read: The Piper's Son or The Demon's Covenant (I read some really really fantastic books this month, I'm extremely happy!)
I finally got around to doing an Awards post :) which took forever!
Reviewed the movie Avatar
Held a contest for The Demon's Covenant and Spirit Bound (closed)
Offered a Blog Tip
Created a blog button (right sidebar)
Set up an "Honesty Box" thing for you to leave whatever comments you like anonymously
And shared my thoughts on TV Show Finales!
So overall, I think I really improved my blog this May, gotten into the routine of posting consistently, reading books, actually reviewing them, and generally smoothed out some kinks in my blog. I think I gained a lot of readers, which I am the most happy about. Thank you guys so so much, I could never have done this without your lovely comments and support :) mwah!
Oh gosh, school is coming to a close and it's crunch time. I have tons of final exams for different courses, including some government exams! I'm kind of obsessed ("kind of" is the understatement here) with this blog though, but I think you can understand that I need to make sure that my priorities are straight.
This blog definitely won't be on the back burner, but I might be updating less constantly (probably 2 posts every 3 days). Don't worry, I will still reply to all your comments! Just expect perhaps a few less book reviews, but I'll still be around (albeit a bit crazed in the head from all that schoolwork!)
Looking Even More Ahead:
I'm going on a LONG vacation in July with my mom! We are going to ____ (haha, don't worry, I'll to you guys soon!) so expect a weird-ish haitus in July but I'll still update when I can and schedule as many posts I can beforehand.
--Also, I'm thinking about starting a blog about my vacation to _____ ;) I'll let you know if I do! It might be kind of like Adele's Japan blog.
Finally, I just wanted to thank all you guys again for being so so so awesome! I wish I could make an awesomecake with awesomesauce and just give every one of you a slice :D
