Reading Challenge: Month 5

Hello Monday and Hello LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL!!! As excited as I am that it's almost summer, the fact that another year (school) has already came and gone is nuts!! This year went so so fast!! 
Moving along....this month I finished two more books....let's see...

#12....Station Eleven....This book was on every.single.bestseller list and was a 2014 National Book Award was literally everywhere I looked and because this isn't usually my preferred genre, because of all the hype (and maybe bc it was like $4 on Amazon) I caved and read it. And I'm so glad I did, it was really good. Civilization as we know it is no more due to a flu epidemic (which oddly enough can be somewhat imaginable these days), and it follows a group of actors who survive the flu and how they struggle to stay alive and rebuild a life. In the wake of the Ebola outbreak, something like this doesn't seem just like fiction, and it made me stop and wonder what in the world would happen if something like this really did happen to us.

#13...You Should Have Known....Tells the story of a marriage counselor who has a great life, when out of nowhere, her whole life and marriage is put into question! I didn't know it would be a mystery, but it turned out to be one. It threw me for a couple of loops at the end. Worth the read.

On another reading related note....for all you Serial fans out there...did you hear....not only are we getting a second season, BUT a third season is in the works as well!!! So excited to see what stories/issues they will be telling!
That's about it...Happy Reading!!
