Hey howdy hey! I can’t believe it’s the end of May! (Oh hey, that rhymes!) I feel like I was just posting my April wrap up. This month seriously flew by. I feel like this summer is going to be over before I know it, but we will get into that in a little bit. First I want to fill you guys in on what I read in May, and then I want to tell you about what I’m going to be up to this summer, because I’m so excited!!!

June is when I celebrate my birthday….and my blog’s birthday! On June 11, I turn one year closer to 30 (yikes) and on June 12, my blog turns one! I really can’t believe that I have been blogging for a year already. It went by so fast! And I am still amazed at how absolutely wonderful this community is! I could keep gushing for a while, but I will save that for another post. Keep an eye out for my reflections on my year of blogging as well as a giveaway to celebrate!
Bookish events in June:
Barnes and Noble is having their first ever B-Fest Teen Book Festival to help me celebrate my birthday! Ok, so maybe they didn’t organize the nationwide event just to honor me, but it falls on my birthday, so I can pretend, right? My lovely author friend, Caragh M. O’Brien, will be visiting a Barnes and Noble near me, so I get to spend my birthday with her surrounded by books! What could be better?!?!
You have probably already seen me talking about this (I mean, I’ve practically been screaming about it on Twitter), but in case you haven’t heard, I am going to ALA Annual in Orlando at the end of June! I could not be more excited! I am turning the trip into a mini vacation for myself as well, so I can’t wait to bask in the Florida sunshine, surround myself with amazing books, and spend time with some even more amazing people. I already know it’s going to be an unforgettable experience. Will you be there??? I would love to meet you!
Got any tips for me?
I’m going to be traveling like crazy this summer, so that means that almost all of my posts will be scheduled way ahead of time. This is a totally new experience for me, because I rarely ever schedule posts far in advance. This is where I need your help. Do you have any tips for what keeps you and your blog organized? How do you not lose track of what you have scheduled and what you have to do? Also, any tips on how to stay organized while traveling? I would love any help I can get! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by guys! I hope you all have a wonderful June and will help me celebrate! Until next time…
When you are about to have the most exciting month of your life…..
…..blame it on the books.
