Library Checkout: May

Unlike Shannon this month, I’ve totally over extended my library usage for May.  I can’t update my kindle or the books I haven’t finished yet will disappear.  This is too much stress!  I’m trying to hold back for June – kind of…  Ok so I have smutty light reading on hold for summer!

  • The Last Days of Magic by Mark Tompkins
  • The Beautiful Bureaucrat by Helen Phillips
  • The Expatriates by Janice Y.K. Lee

How was your library reading this month?


  1. Haha! I hope not. I think Shannon reads enough to be ok. And happiness – our mom bought the Swans! So I can read it whenever and then force it on Holly. Eligible has a HUGE list so maybe I’ll even be done with Charlotte before I get to it.
