Reading Wrap-up For May at Moonshine and Rosefire

Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading month for yourselves. I am known as Rosefire around the Internet and this is my new personal reading blog. I originally posted my reviews over at my daughter’s blog, Emeraldfire’s Bookmark but am now in the process of transferring them all over to my own blog. My daughter makes blogging look like so much fun that I thought that I would try it out for myself! πŸ™‚

Anyway, I started out May with 704 unread books lying around the house and ended the month with 695 books unread. All the books that I acquired this month came from Paperback Swap, a friend, Netgalley, Bookmooch and an author.

Let me try to break down the influx for you:
