Posted June 1, 2015 by Stephanie in Wrap Up / 0 Comments

So, I’m going to do this new thing monthly where I let you guys know a little bit more about me. I used to do this over on Bookish. But since I’m not there anymore, I decided to bring over a version of the Bookish Digest over here. I’ll let you know what my favorite read was for the month and I’ll link up some of my posts from the month as well as give you guys some news or information about my life.
My pick for the month of May:

Title: Black Ice
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Series: Standalone
Genre: Young Adult, Thriller, Mystery, Contemporary, Romance
Published By: Simon & Schuster on October 7, 2014
My review will be up later today. 🙂

Danger is hard to resist in this sexy thriller from Becca Fitzpatrick, the New York Times bestselling author of the Hush, Hush saga.

Brit Pheiffer has trained to backpack the Teton Range, but she isn’t prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two very handsome occupants;but these men are fugitives, and they take her hostage.

Britt is forced to guide the men off the mountain, and knows she must stay alive long enough for Calvin to find her. The task is made even more complicated when Britt finds chilling evidence of a series of murders that have taken place there and in uncovering this, she may become the killer’s next target.

But nothing is as it seems, and everyone is keeping secrets, including Mason, one of her kidnappers. His kindness is confusing Britt. Is he an enemy? Or an ally?

Black Ice is New York Times bestselling author Becca Fitzpatrick’s riveting romantic thriller set against the treacherous backdrop of the mountains of Wyoming. Falling in love should never be this dangerous.

What happened in May:
1. The Chicago Blackhawks won the Western Conference which means we are going to the Stanley!! Saturday May 30th was a great day!
2. I read quite a bit this month! Not as much as I was hoping but a lot more than the previous months!
3. Joe and I haven’t completely set a date, but we are REALLY looking at January 30, 2016. Which is exciting and nerve-racking all at the same time!
What I’m looking forward to for June:
1. The Blackhawks winning the Stanley Cup and bringing it back home!
2. Joe’s annual Chicago truck meet is happening which means one whole weekend dedicated to grilling, being outside, drinking, and reading! Plus getting to see all our friends from out of state as well.
3. Setting an official date and putting down a deposit at a venue for the wedding!

Let’s talk about it!
