100 Book Reading Challenge: May

Hey all you readers out there, how's it going? Are you still reading? Has life gotten in the way? How many books are you up to now?

I haven't had the chance to count up to where I am, but I think it's around 24 (ish). I'm waaay behind where I was last year, but, hey. Life happens sometimes. :)

This month, I've got two more ARCs to give away.

My Life, The Theater, And Other Tragedies by Allen Zadoff
High school sophomore Adam Zeigler, who lost his father to a sudden accident two years ago, thinks the best way to live life is behind the spotlight. As a member of the theater crew, he believes he's achieved it all when he wins the coveted job of spotlight operator. But that was before a young actress, Summer, appeared in his view. Instantly smitten, Adam is determined to win her over. But to do so, he'll have to defy his best friend and break the golden rule of his school: techies and actors don't mix.
Set against the backdrop of a high school production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Zadoff's latest is a bromance, a love story, and theater story in one. The politics of love and high school collide as Adam struggles to find the courage to step out of the shadows and into the light.

The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens
Kate, Michael, and Emma have been in one orphanage after another for the last ten years, passed along like lost baggage.
Yet these unwanted children are more remarkable than they could possibly imagine. Ripped from their parents as babies, they are being protected from a horrible evil of devastating power, an evil they know nothing about.
Until now.
Before long, Kate, Michael, and Emma are on a journey to dangerous and secret corners of the world...a journey of allies and enemies, of magic and mayhem. And—if an ancient prophesy is correct—what they do can change history, and it is up to them to set things right.
 
To enter, fill in the form below. Also, you must follow these rules, or your entry will be disqualified:
  1. One URL per entry, and that URL must directly link to a book review. A general link to your blog or Goodreads account isn't specific enough (I simply don't have the time to go sifting through reviews to see if you're reading).
  2. You may enter as many times as you like, BUT you must keep to the one URL per entry rule. Otherwise your entry will only count as one.
  3. You must have read and reviewed the book IN MAY. Past reviews don't count.
FYI--to get to a direct link to your Goodreads reviews, click on the title of the book, and then click on the "My Review" heading just above where you type in your review.

Come back here on tuesday, May 31 to see if you've won. Good luck!!

Cool contest. I haven't been reviewing books even though I read a ton, so I'm not entering. These books sound great though.

I'm in! I posted my first review for May on goodreads, but it's giving me the link through FB - hopefully this works.

I wrote this up in Spanish because the book was in Spanish, but the rest of my books this month will definitely be in English!

Glad to have you, Kiperoo!

Can you put your link in the form at the bottom of the post? That's where I'm collecting all the entries.

Thanks!
