Anticipating June 2016 – New Releases in Books

Hellooo my darling bookish friends,

It is with great joy that I welcome June – yet another month of awesome new releases I look forward to (that, probably, I will still be catching up on in December, seeing how behind I’ve gotten already on all the books bought and received thus far this year). Anyone else with me on that? I know I’m not alone on endless tbr-piles 😉

Also a quick note on teaching and my blog: somehow, I was so much better at keeping up while my students were still at school… Is this the teacher version of senioritis, I wonder? Complete lethargy for the 2.5 weeks I still have to show up but do absolutely nothing but clean up and prep for next year because all my students are gone? (Ah, the joys of teaching seniors…). Anyways, it’s now June 1st, time to recommit, for real this time!

New June Goal: 4+ blog posts per week, and also keeping up with all of your wonderful blogs and updates!

Without further ado, here’s books I’ll have to read (aka ARCs), others I’ve pre-ordered, some I would love to read eventually, and one that I sadly cannot recommend. (more…)

Anticipating May 2016 – New Book Releases, Fiction & Non-Fiction

Hi everyone! It’s that very exciting time of the month – the end! Which is thrilling of course because it means May is almost here, bringing with it a wealth of NEW BOOKS to swoon over and be enchanted by and hopefully fall in love with.

Here’s my most-anticipated list – 4 I’m still eagerly awaiting (on pre-order), and 4 I’ve had the privilege to read & that I highly recommend. Each list is in order of publication.

What are *you* looking forward to reading this month? I would love to know!!! Please leave a note in the comments if you wouldn’t mind sharing 🙂
