May 2018 Blogging Recap!

Image result for planner

Summertime has officially kicked off! May was such a spectacular month, and we're so excited about this recap. (And by the time you're reading this post, we'll be at BookCon tomorrow!!! EEEEEPP!!)

In May...

....We did more guest reviews!
We started featuring guest reviews from other readers and bloggers on The Book Bratz (2 or 3 each month) earlier this year, and SO many awesome people seemed interested that we opened it up for the rest of the year! If you're interested in guest reviewing for us, head over to the Contact Us tab and shoot us an email! :-)

This month, our guests reviewed One of Us is Lying, My Plain Jane, and Ash Princess!

....We reviewed tons of great books!
This month, we reviewed Don't Forget Me, The Leading Edge of Now, Failsafe, Leah on the Offbeat, More Than We Can Tell, If You Don't Have Anything Nice to Say, and Caraval!

....We went to BEA for the very first time!!
And it was seriously so incredible, but it's still going on at the time you're reading this post, so we haven't done a recap yet! Stay tuned, because that will definitely be coming in June. :-) We'll be re-capping BookCon, too!

....We did another subscription box unboxing!
Scribbler is a writer-oriented subscription box that we recently got a subscription to, and we've been loving it! We unboxed the second box ever (the theme was POV!), and you check check out all of the lovely goodies it came with by clicking here.

We also caught up on our unboxings and unboxed the May box, whose theme was Fight Scenes! You can check out that unboxing by clicking here.

....We hosted an author interview and ARC giveaway!
We were lucky enough to sit down with author Marci Lyn Curtis and interview her in regards to her newest book, The Leading Edge of Now, and we also got to host an international ARC giveaway for a copy! You're in luck, because the giveaway is running until June 4th, so there's still time to enter! You can check out the interview and enter the exclusive ARC giveaway by clicking here.

....We added another installment to The College Diaries!
If you're new to The Book Bratz, let us explain -- The College Diaries is a mini-series where we do posts updating all of you on how balancing blogging, reading, and college is going. This month, Amber added an installment all about the end of the semester, BookCon 2018 and summer vacation, which you can read by clicking here.

What was your favorite thing that we did on the blog this month? What are your recommendations for future posts/reviews? Comment down below and let us know! :-)

Now it's time for June -- and hopefully some great days reading by the beach!

Also, something new is coming to the site this month, and trust us, you definitely want to be around to see that... ;-)
