Wrap-up: May 2015

Well it’s already the beginning of June. We have to be careful because before we know it it’ll be December 31.
So far, May was a pretty busy month for me. There was not one moment to rest, but I’m not complaining. I got to read and do interesting things last month.

This month’s recap: with a lot of sweat and determination I managed to finish FOUR books this month. I know that may not seem like a lot to some but for someone who has a full time job, I think it is a great achievement. Three of them were great reads and highly recommend them to you all and one that could of been better. You can read my reviews of the books I read below:

The Daughter by Jane Shemlit

Emma by Jane Austen

The Sound of Glass by Karen White

Love in the Elephant Tent:How Running Away with the Circus Brought Me Home by Kathleen Cremonesi

Currently reading:

The Bones of You

The Bones of You by Debbie Howells

To Read Next:

Echo by Lorena Glass

Cutting the Soul by Theresa Larsen

Discussions:

Last month I started Weekly Tea Discussion and I want to thank you all for the great response and feedback I received from my posts. I hope all of you are enjoying reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. If you haven’t read any of them, here are some previous posts and watch for a new post every Friday:

Usually mention this but this is somewhat book related. In the first time in six years, I went to see Wolf Hall on Broadway, both parts one and two. The play is based off Hillary Mantel’s novels Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies. It was so good and now I want to read the books!

BookCon happened and it was such a great experience! If you want to read more about it and see great pictures at the same time, check out my post here.

Upcoming for Next Month:

As of right now, nothing. But you never know, that soon might change. I will keep you posted.

Happy reading!

BookCon finally arrived this weekend and I had a great time! I met so many authors, attended interesting discussion panels, and received so many free books (a definite plus) that my mind is still trying to wrap around all the amazing things I saw and participated in this weekend. Take a look at the amazing pics I took over the weekend:
