May RAK and TBR Reduction

This was my first R.A.K. and I hope to do it again!

Book Soulmates

This month I sent Beverly of Booklady's Booknotes a copy of Divergent by Veronica Roth.

And I received The Wedding Bargain by Victoria Alexander from Mary of Sweeping Me.

I was going to say I was such a good girl this week, I'm down negative 11... or I'm up 11 books on my TBR list. I only read two books off my TBR list. I'm hoping in June to reread less books. And of course there was my birthday near the middle of the month, so it's no wonder I have a ton of new books..... Hopefully I'll have better luck next month.

Weigh in Wednesday (5)

Weigh in Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Epilogue. The topic for this weeks meme is: 

Poetry vs Prose

Alright let's put it out there. I'm one of those people who don't really understand poetry. I can't write poetry to save my life, it doesn't sound romantic to me, and half the time it's hard for me to figure out what the point of it is. Not gonna lie, but I even have this problem with music. I was one of those kids in high school, who in English or in Creative Writing, whenever we did a poetry assignment, I was the one who just put my name on the paper and handed it in that way, otherwise it would have stressed me out trying to figure it out. Yup so it's prose all the way for me.

Showcase Sunday (4)

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books Biscuits and Tea.

Can it be? I was actually good this week? Yup! You saw that right! I was good this week! All of these are free kindle ebooks, with the exception of Warbreaker, which my friend allowed me to keep. And Kiss Me, I'm Irish which is an ebook I won. The Royal Sheikh was kind of a consolation prize. And The Wedding Bargain (like Warbreaker) is a physical copy, and that was a RAK gift. Still... I think I might have overdone it with all this free goodness. I also just received some swag I won a few weeks ago (I was going to take pictures, however... that didn't happen).
