Reading Queue: June

The Reading QueueHi friends!

What month is it?! June you say?! Oh my gosh! June is going to be crazy. First, my maternity leave is over and I started back at work today for one week until the end of the school year (luckily I have a husband with a flexible schedule), I’m still learning how to be a mother to a now three month old, and we’re moving to the UK. Yup! That’s right friends! We’re packing up our little family and moving across “the pond” to Manchester, England for my husband’s job! So yeah, there’s a lot going on!

Let’s talk about my June Reading Queue in the midst of all this crazy, but exciting, life stuff! Remember that I co-host this monthly event with Jessica at Books A True Story, so be sure to visit her blog (and her Reading Queue) too!

How I Did Last Month

May was a better reading month than April was. Two were continuations in series that I love and one was a new title by one of my favorite authors so I devoured these three books pretty quickly!

My June Reading Queue

I have absolutely no idea how the month of June is going to be on the reading front. Moving to a new country is going to take up a lot of time, and although I am preparing myself mentally for less time to read I’m adding six books to this month’s queue!

Reading Queue: May

The Reading Queue

Hello there!

April was such a busy, yet fun, month!

In addition to staying on routine with a newborn (now two months old!) we had a bunch of family visitors over the past few weeks. First, my brother and sister-in-law came for a long weekend to meet their little nephew for the first time! A few days later, my parents came to visit for few days. Then after that, my in-laws came into town to see Colin as well.  I’m telling you, they only want to see Colin!

Let’s talk about my May Reading Queue. I don’t know if May is going to be any slower than April, but we can hope that I get more reading in! Remember that I co-host this monthly event with Jessica at Books A True Story, so be sure to visit her blog (and her Reading Queue) too!

How I Did Last Month

With so many visitors April was a rough reading month for me as I only finished two books. Also Shadow Scale was SUPER long so I didn’t have much time for other books this past month.

My May Reading Queue

In May I think I’ll do better than I did last month. None of the books are as massively long as Shadow Scale was and we don’t have nearly as many visitors coming in town. Plus, I’ve been cleared to start exercising again and I’ll be working my way back into running, so audiobooks are my game again!

Reading Queue: April

The Reading QueueHi there!

As of today I’ve officially been a mom for a month! I have to say that it’s pretty darn challenging…but also very, very awesome as well! Colin and I are getting to know each other a little better every single day.

But as I said, it’s a new month which means it is time for a new Reading Queue. I co-host this monthly event with Jessica at Books A True Story, so be sure to visit her blog (and her Reading Queue) too!

How I Did Last Month

I had no idea what to expect reading-wise during my first month with a newborn, but I was pleasantly surprised! I managed to read three books during March. I already loved audiobooks to begin with (which you already know! haha), but I can see that they’re going to be my main source of reading material in these early months because I can “read” and be hands-free!

My April Reading Queue

I have high hopes for this month because I hit the mother load when I visited my local library the other day. I found a bunch of new titles on audiobook! I couldn’t believe some of them were just sitting there on the shelf! I was like “WHAT?! NO ONE HAS CHECKED THESE OUT YET?!” It was awesome. So here are the titles that are in my plans for the month – all are audiobooks.

Reading Queue: March

The Reading QueueHi!

Happy March! Here at BookTasty we are officially on Baby Watch! My due date is tomorrow and I’ve been having contractions every hour or so, so things are definitely progressing and are about to real, really soon!

It’s also time for another Reading Queue! The Reading Queue is a monthly event hosted by myself and Jessica at Books a True Story where we reflect on our reading from the previous month and set our reading plans for the upcoming month. I find that having reading plans for the month (even loose ones) helps keep me relatively focused…most of the time! haha

How I Did Last Month

Audiobooks are my friends! When I feel like I don’t have time to sit and read a print book, audiobooks keep my “reading” going! In February 3 of the four books I finished were on audio.

 My March Reading Queue

With Marshmallow coming soon, I have no idea how much reading I’ll actually get done in March, but it’s totally okay to bit off more than I can chew right?!

Okay, so there you have it! March’s plans are, let’s say…optimistic…with a newborn on the very near horizon, but we’ll just have to see how things work out. I already started both Ruby Red and The Boy on the Bridge yesterday, but which titles from my queue should I pick up next?

As always, please join up with us for this month’s Reading Queue! We love to checkout what everyone else’s reading plans are!
