There are a couple of things that I just love about May… Most of them have to do with sitting out and reading, drinking coffee, basking in the sun and feeling the spring weather on my skin. Ahhh fabulous! And who knew zombies would be involved!? Can life get any better? I think not!
The entire month of May 2012:
Zombies! Zombies! And more, yes… ZOMBIES!
When I started getting interested in reading about zombies I thought I had to be the only one. Who else would read about zombies? My husband looks at me like I’m weird and my incessant talking about the zombie apocalypse probably has him a bit worried. But here we have a read-a-thon for the entire month of May that has everything to do with my favorite subject, zombies! I have to say I’m quite excited and will be picking up a couple of books just for this!
If you’re into zombies as much as I am, you will want to head straight over to Bookish Brunette and see all the amazing things she has going on for May! I think we can all say we’re super excited and if my hubby walks in on my wielding a baseball bat because I thought he was crazed, well… he knows how much my imagination takes over when I read
May 1 to Sept 1, 2012:
This goes right into the Summer Challenge of 2012 that Semi Charmed Kind of Life has baked up for us! Quite the interesting challenge to say the least!
