#BookADayMay Wrap Up + #MGCarousel Book Bingo for May

#BookADayMay final stack

Books are a big part of my life all year ’round, but kicking off summer with a reading challenge has always been my favorite tradition. There’s something about that first day with the A/C on that makes me wild for a trip to the library…

That being said, it’s a lot easier for me to stay focused when there’s some sort of incentive attached, which is why I decided to participate in Middle Grade Carousel‘s first official #BookADayMay challenge!
