  1. Hi Kathryn, What a great month you had! I will checking shards of hope. I wish I had known about you meme (just learned thought Elizabeth @ evil overloard) I would have prepare a post to participate. I'll try tonight when I get home again.

    1. Daniela I love this psy/changeling series, I think this is about #14 or almost that.

  2. Great monthly post Kathryn. It looks like you've had another great reading month. It is strange to think your winter is approaching as our summer is. I'll post my monthly update tomorrow. Have a great week.

  3. forgot to say that I love your blog! now following you everywhere! :)

  4. You had a great reading month
    I will post my link later.

  5. Good job on reading 13 books this month, I managed to finish 7 books.

    1. Thats great, we all read as and when we can!

  6. You got a lot of books for very little money; good job! How did you like the Giuliana Rancic book?

    1. I liked Giuliana's book, I think if I remember I gave it 4 stars, probably knew most of what she had written already as I really admire her - so could be biased!

  7. Looks like you had another fantastic reading month! I agree with Pat @ Posting For Now! I had to read that twice about the leaves starting to fall and having your first frost! Lol! Have a wonderful June and enjoy your cool weather! :)

    1. I know the seasons are opposites, you'll be delighting in a new summer while ours is long gone!

    2. True! It's just that I forget we are all in very different places. It's fantastic to have "friends" all over the world! :)

  8. I haven't read any of these books, I will have to check them out!

  9. had a great month! And once again, we've read many of the same books :) I just got a copy of The Guest Cottage on audio and can't wait to start it. I also have The Lake Season sitting on my shelves that I am quite anxious to start.

  10. I wish I had your numbers!! I'm going to try really hard in June to get more books read. I feel like a slacker lately, although all of my May books were really good ones.

  11. You had a great month, I think I read 6 books and 2 of those were children's picture books lol. I'm really looking forward to The Colour of Light, love that series!

  12. Sheree Me too, I so love that series. I get her newsletter / blog posts and she was asking what we want her to write so I voted for the Goddesses and I liked her Shenandoah series too. Children's picture books sure count!

  13. Not a bad reading month at all! I need to get back to Linda Lael Miller and JD Robb soon. It's been way too long for me reading either one of them.
