May Book Reviews

Here's what I've been reading during May. I'd love to know what you've been reading. I need some good books for the summer. 

Banana SplitBanana Split by Josi S. Kilpack
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a quick easy read. I love a good mystery.

  Okay for NowOkay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was an interesting book. It's told from the perspective of 7th grade boy. His father is abusive and his brother is a troublemaker. So when he moves to a new town, a lot of people assume the worst about him. This book shows how abuse and dysfunctional families do not have to become a cycle. A few people accept him for who he is and who he can become and with their support he earns the respect of a lot of people and helps his family change.

Divergent (Divergent, #1)Divergent by Veronica Roth
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book right from the beginning. I've got the next book on hold at the library. I can't wait to read it.



  1. Rachel, thanks for the reviews. I think I just may pick one up to start reading! :D

  2. Thank you , those books sounds really interesting. Now tell me how do you find the time to read. Me between working, house, kids, blogging. Cannot find the time, my books on the kindle are piling up. Share your secret please I really enjoy reading but it looks like it has made it to the bottom of my list

  3. I'm so impressed that you got three books read this month! I am trying so hard to get back to my normal reading schedule. I am totally going to look up Divergent it looks good. Thanks for partying with us at Ready, Set.., Read. You have been entered into the giveaway.:)
