May was a slow month for the blog. We went on vacation to Grand Cayman. I’ll be putting a post together to showcase all the fun pictures and things we did, but here is a little Cayman Sunset for you ^_^.



Beside our vacation my son has 1 week – 5 days of school left, before Summer Vacation. OMG where did the time go? My little kindergartner is growing up. Here is some of what he did throughout the year.



Empowering my kid to read!!


We received our 1st Prime Book Box for Kids this month. You can check it out on the post HERE. My son loved getting a surprise package in the mail. 


During the school year they send home those Scholastic Book Club papers, where you can order books for your kids and help support the school. I remember as a kid getting my books from the Scholastic. At the time it was the only way to get books unless you had a store near you, which we didn’t. For my son I hadn’t order anything all year, but deiced that this is the last one coming, so I ordered the Dog Man Books and some Ninjago combo pack of books. My son likes both! He is a 6-year-old boy ^_^. 



Next up I had a flower growing in my garden that I didn’t know what it was. I asked and everyone said an Iris, well when it bloomed it was an Iris. It’s a leftover from the previous home owner and I’m glad I kept watering it, so I could enjoy. 



Mother’s Day was in May and my hubby and son got me KLASK: The Magnetic Game of Skill. It’s fun!!



Last a few other things on the blog: I set up a page that showcases what My Stars Mean. You will no longer see this on the side bar now that it has it’s own page. Under Reviews in the top bar you can now see the Audiobook Review List, Audiobook Reviews by Narrator List, Book Reviews Alphabetized by Author List, and last Movie Review List. That’s all the new changes to the blog besides the Privacy Policy added to the Policies Page under the About at the top bar menu. 



May I Suggest Hop – Erin M was the winner and she picked an eCopy of How to Save an Undead Life




With May being the month we celebrate Mother’s Day I got a kick out of this post featured over at Vampire Book Club – 5 Worst Moms in Urban Fantasy.


Under the Covers Book Blog did a post that is informative for bloggers on the GDPR and what it means for you – Blog it Out: GDPR for Bloggers.
