Blogger Hop


So last week was the first time I joined the blogger hop, and you know what?.... I only joined in spirit, because I learned that my link wasn't working. HAHA!  Just like me to screw up the link.

If I do the link right this time, then this will be my real first blogger hop.  I discovered some really cool blogs last Friday, and I of course followed.  

If you are interested in joining the hop, head on over to Crazy for Books and join.

I'm going to do a month of May wrap up..

May books read:

The Unwritten Rule- Elizabeth Scott
The Birthday Ball- Lois Lowry
Perfect Chemistry- Simone Elkeles
The Lies We Told- Diane Chamberlain
The Mark- Jen Nadol
Passion, Betrayal and Killer Highlights- Kyra Davis
Prada and Prejudice- Mandy Hubbard
The Oracle of Dating- Allison van Diepen
Seven Year Switch- Claire Cook
Obsession Deceit, and Really Dark Chocolate- Kyra Davis
Catching Fire- Suzanne Collins

Obviously you can tell that I read a lot of young adult, and women's fiction.  I also read chick lit, contemporary fiction, and alittle bit of mystery/thriller, and memoirs.

On my sidebar I have a link to all the books I've read this year with the link to the review.   Some haven't been reviewed yet, but I read faster than I can review them. 


Just for fun, here are pictures of my books.  Notice they are basically everywhere in my room and not so neatly on my shelves. 

This one is on my dresser.  I used all my dark colored HB for decoration. As I told my DH, much cheaper than if I would have gone to Pier 1 to get something to put there. ;)

This is my nightstand.  Not Hoarders worthy, but still "Do you think I might have a problem?"

These are my shelves in my extra walk in closet.  Ummm, is it me or do I see a bowing effect on the middle shelf.  There is also on more shelf that I couldn't get in the picture.

These two are what happens when you have no more shelves or no more room.  You start putting them in containers, and stacked up on the floor in a room nobody but me goes into (laundry room).

Now for giggles, here is how my husband contributes to this mess.

His one book!  He's been reading it for weeks now. 
Too cute.

Hope everyone has a great Friday, and weekend ahead.


  1. I found you at the hop. I had to laugh because your shelves look a lot like mine.


  2. Haha, that's so cute how your husband has his one book. =) My husband has been reading a lot more than he has in the past... but even then his TBR pile is like 5 books high LOL!! And mines takes up every other spare space in teh house!

  3. LOL about husband's one book! i found you through the book hop. you read a lot during may--sadly, i only read 7. i really want to read the elkeles and scott book.

  6. I can definitely empathize with all of the bookshelves. I cleaned mine up some last week, but they are still everywhere. My husband has more than one book, but I definitely put him to shame. I look forward to reading your blog and I'm glad I found you on the blog hop.
