May was my most productive month of reading yet, but I still feel like I’m in a deep slump—nothing has really grabbed me yet this year. So I’ll be reading some books that have sat on my TBR shelf for far too long!

I’m looking forward to your review on Game of Thrones. I haven’t watched the show, unlike most of America, so I thought I might try the book. My most favorite recent reads- Maud’s Line and Cherokee America by Margaret Verble.
