May 2015 Wrap Up

Here is my recap for May!! :)

What Was Read:

  • Timeless by Alexandra Monir
  • Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
  • Insurgent by Veronica Roth
  • What's Left Of Me by Kat Zhang (Review Coming Soon!)
  • Parasite by Mira Grant (Review Coming Soon!)

Project 10 Book (New Book Buying Reward System!!)

So yes I quit Project 10 Book and have instead made up a new type of book buying reward system (a much simpler one to be honest) and that system is that for the first 5 phases I have to read 3 books before I can buy a book and then from Phase 6 - 10 I have to read 5 books before I can buy a new book and so on and so forth. I started this project just before beginning to read Scarlet and after I bought the 3 books I hauled this month so right now here is my progress:

Phase 1 - COMPLETE
1. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer (12/5)
2. Insurgent by Veronica Roth (17/5)
3. What's Left Of Me by Kat Zhang (20/5)
Reward - Not gotten yet!!

Phase 2 -
1. Parasite by Mira Grant (25/5)
2. The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead (31/5)
