Monthly Reflections 5/2012


How I fared with my May goals:
I didn't manage to read or review anything for NetGalley and Blogging for Books, but I did review one for Bethany House. Of the eight books I read I reviewed three - so almost half! (Which was my goal.) And I read one non-fiction book (but started two others).
This month has been rather crazy - I think I was only home one weekend. And I got a job! In Africa! As a school librarian! So I'm rather busy getting ready for that. My sincere apologies that this blog will be not be updated as frequently as in the past. 

Books I read:

My reviews:
Prize of My Heart by Lisa Norato
Moonblood by Anne Elisabeth Stengl
The Messenger by Siri Mitchell

My June goals:
Write at least four book reviews of which one is for Blogging for Books and one for Netgalley
Finish that B4B book that I've been dragging my feet on
Read two books for the 2014 Winter Olympic Challenge
Read two non-fiction books


  1. Congrats on your job! That is such a cool opportunity, and I know God will use you. Looks like you had some good books this month. I read and enjoyed both The Messenger and Prize of my Heart.

    1. Thanks Abbi! I'm excited and looking forward to it. Since you liked those two books you should read An Unlikely Suitor, it's good.

  2. Great month! I've read Prize of My Heart and really enjoyed it! :) I hope you reach your goals for June! :)

    1. Thanks Melanie! I hope you reach your June goals as well! :-)

  3. Congratulations on getting such a cool job in Africa!! Woohoo!!!

    1. Thanks Susan! I'm excited. Especially since some of the kids I'll be working with are mks. :-)

  4. Congrats on your job in Africa, that is an AMAZING opportunity!!!! I used to be a children's librarian and loved it! I've read "The Princess Academy" and "An Unlikely Suitor." I love Nancy Moser's books! Did you see NetGalley has a second "Princess Academy" book up? It looks good. There's so many good books on NetGalley I want to review and so little time! Anyway, good luck on next month's goals!

    1. Thanks Megan! I did see somewhere another Princess Academy book but thought it was just a new cover for the old book. Happy to know there's a second book and that it's available on NetGalley. Thanks for letting me know!
      I agree! There's not enough time in the world to read every book I'd like to (and then review it as well!)!

  5. Congrats on your job in Africa! That's exciting!

    Also good job on your May goals.

    1. Thank you Dawn! It is exciting and also a bit scary. But I'm looking forward to it. :-)
