  1. Here's mine--and it's an upset victory that makes American Idol drama look tame! Well, perhaps not because, let's face it, both my "shout out" book and my Book of the Month are completely awesome. :)

  2. Good morning! I'm prepared this month. :)

    Best Book of May

    Here's to a great day of reading and writing!

  3. I'll just like to my YA Book Club Review since that's my answer =)

    Although, to be fair, Finnikin of the Rock and Froi of the Exiles put up a pretty good fight.

  4. Just posted about this yesterday. Didn't realize YA Highway hadn't posted this one for May yet! Oh well... Here is mine.

  5. I posted this a week ago, but I couldn't pick anyway. I read five great books this month:

    Entwined by Heather Dixon
    Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles
    Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
    Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
    Insurgent by Veronica Roth


  6. Lord, May was a big reading month for me. Read about it here:

  15. I can't believe it's already the end of May...wait a's not May! ;D

  16. Is it cheating to say Insurgent again? If I can't pick Insurgent, I'd have to say Bitterblue!

  17. Everyone seems to like Insurgent... Including me. :) It was amazing.

  18. Tough to choose!

  19. The best book I read this month was "Size 12 is Note Fat." Such a funny read!
