Week 18 of 2014

Week 18 brings in May…the most busy month of my entire year. It’s full of birthdays, graduations or end of the school year, traveling, Mother’s Day, outside yard work and so much more. Throw in I am in so many fundraisers right now I could scream…seriously, I am about to donate my book money just to get away from them all.

So week 18…in the 5th month of the year…518 is my favorite number…why…May 18 is my birthday. Oh, it’s early but when I saw the numbers I thought lucky week. Only one book bought…one I just couldn’t live without and plan to read soon.

How was your week?

Good choice! I’m not missing out on this book either, but not sure when I’m getting to it. Yay! Reset on the budget.

Net Galley is like one of my favorite places because I love to read the latest just for the cost of a review. ๐Ÿ˜‰
