Book Blogger Hop, June 3-6

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy for Books.

In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

This week's question/prompt:

“Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us why it’s close to your heart!”

My answer:

I have two favorite posts from May; one is bookish and one is not.  The bookish post that was my favorite was my review of the newest installment in the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead Reckoning.  May is always a wild month with those of us who teach...this May was even more so with my firstborn daughter graduating from high school.  Dead Reckoning was my gift to myself after all the hoopla was over...WHEW!   No more essays to grade, no more parties to attend or host, no more checks to write (for the month of May anyway), and just pure pleasure reading....ahhhhhhh :)

My 2nd favorite post for this month had nothing to do with books.  It was a tribute to my mother on Mother's Day.  My mom and I have had an up and down relationship all of our lives, and it is hard for me sometimes to tell her how I feel.  However, for some reason this year I was able to find the words...she called me crying after she read it to tell me how much it meant to her so I think I got it right :) 

Can't wait to hop around and read everyone else's favorites!!
