May 2014 Round-Up

School is out, summer is pretty much here; I just spent yesterday mowing the lawn and planting the garden, and didn’t get a speck of reading done. Thankfully, next weekend is the 48 Hour Book Challenge, and I’ve been putting together my pile of diverse books to read. I’m also looking forward to a summer of rereading John Green’s books so I can lead our summer book group for teens (and others). (I’m also being dragged — not unwillingly — to The Fault in Our Stars next weekend.) And the YAckers have decided to make a summer project of reading the Graceling series. It’s been too long since I’ve visited those books.

As for this past month, my favorite was:

The Great Greene Heist

I’m not just saying that because we’re in the middle of the #GreatGreeneChallenge at work. I honestly thought the book was a lot of fun.
