Month in Review: May

It seems like every month goes by before I realize it. May was a little hectic with several things to take care of, but I managed to read a lot of good books. Outside of books, I started following the Couch to 5k program. I've never been a runner, and still can't call myself that, but I can jog longer than I've ever been able to before. During my past few workouts I've tried listening to an audiobook instead of music, and I think I may continue that. As for my blog, I realized I haven't had discussion posts like I hoped to in the past two months, and some weeks I haven't had as many reviews as I wanted. I hope to fix that in June!

Losing It by Cora Carmack
Supernaturally by Kiersten White

Snapshot Musings

This post series features discussions on a variety of topics - namely whatever bookish things are on my mind. One of my blogging goals for 2013 was to have more discussion posts, and this feature is how I'm holding myself accountable.

Sadly, I didn't have any of these. If you have ideas for topics you'd like to see, please let me know! I do have some ideas for the upcoming weeks, if only I can find time to write them.
