TSS: May 2012 Books Recap

May was a tough month. I only read 4 books and three of them were audios. Despite being ridiculously excited for Shine, it took me three weeks to read it. Between settling in the new house, getting ready for the baby, and having the baby, May just flew by without leaving me much time to myself. But I finished a book on June 1 already, so hopefully I do a little better now that Evan is here.

What I did read in May, I enjoyed. All four of these books were very different and made for an interesting mix of baseball, zombies, WWI, and ghosts.

  • The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach (audio)
  • Zombiestan by Mainak Dhar (audio)
  • Pardonable Lies by Jaqueline Winspear (audio)
  • Shine by Jeri-Smith Ready

I also reviewed:

In addition, I showed you the book collection Evan has already amassed, shared a whole series of pictures of the new house (exterior and living room; kitchen, dining room, and porchesguest room/library and baby’s bathroommaster bedroom; and nursery), and introduced my son.

And now I will leave you with an image that just melts my heart. Happy June, everyone.

Ben and Evan

    Love the picture! This kid is going to be writing prose by the time he is 3!!! Don’t be too hard on yourself with the reading…you’ve got a lot going on. These are magical years you are facing.

    I’d say for as busy as you were, you got a lot of reading done! I’ve got The Art of Fielding and have heard a lot of good things about it so I’m looking forward to your review. Also, congratulations on your adorable baby! And yes, that picture is so cool! What a lucky baby Evan is, getting started on reading so early and already having such a nice book collection! 🙂

    I read The Hungry Caterpillar to my Evan when he was a baby too!! He didn’t listen until he was 3 and held captive in the bath but still.
