Booksie's Shelves, May 13, 2014

The second part of May is stressful!  With the finish of school come tons of papers and projects and tests.  With a teenager in the house, it is stress city.  Add in the end of the year in dance with the recital coming up this weekend, and we're all ready for summer.  Since we can't get enough drama, we're also initiating several house renovation projects that have been on hold for a while.  There are season finales on TV shows and of course, always a ton of great books to read! 

I went to a wonderful book sale last week and was able to restrain myself and only buy six.  That's good since here's what's come in the door lately:
