There’s nothing like a good vacation abroad to have you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed! In a way I’m glad to be back even if my trip felt like it flew by so quickly as it means that I can get started on planning my next trip. (I already have trips mapped out for the next four years)
Anyways, I’m excited to share my thoughts on the books featured this month as I think they all would make great beach reads for the summer! Feel free to let me know your thoughts on them if you’ve read any of them as well.
On another note, I will be taking my annual summer blog hiatus starting next month. And although I may have the occasional review or blog post during the summer, I won’t be back in full swing until September.

April was a busy month for me personally. And after all the chaos, I’m glad that I’ll be finally able to travel in a few days. And while it may just be me running away for a bit, I could really use the break from all the craziness that’s been happening in my life. Plus I could really use a change.
Interestingly enough the trip itself has brought on some interesting situations that will have to be dealt with once I arrive in the country that I’m travelling to. But here’s to hoping that there are no major mishaps and/or drama and that my trip goes as smoothly as possible.
Anyways I know I haven’t been posting much lately, but if you’re still reading and following my blog, I just want to take this time to say thank you. This month I’m back to posting (almost) twice a week, and I’m hoping to keep it up for next month too (fingers crossed).

February was a pretty fun filled month that felt like it just flew by, which is why if I’m honest I’m not looking forward to the month of March (with its no work holidays) as much. Fortunately I have a few fun things planned during this month to help the days go by faster. In fact tonight I’m going to an advance screening of the Before I Fall movie and I’m also hoping to go to make it to a GTA Bloggers Hangout later this week as well.
Next month, Words of Mystery will be taking a bit of a break as I will be busy with work and hopefully some travel prep. But I’ll be back with new posts come May. Until then, I hope the following posts this month.

Finally October is over! Though to be honest it wasn’t as bad as I expected, slightly hectic but not too overwhelming. Somehow between all the event preparations and working various events, I still managed to have some fun as well. I went to a couple of IFOA (International Festival of Authors) events in Toronto and I even got to attend a Fall Preview at the Penguin Random House Offices.
This past month I’ve gotten really into the Poke food trend, thanks to my co-workers. For those of you who are unfamiliar with what Poke is, its basically a sushi bowl and was something that originated from Hawaii. Fortunately for me, a bunch of new Poke places have opened up downtown. My top picks would have to be Pokeito (which my coworkers LOVE) and The Poke Box. Other than food and bookish stuff, I’m gotten news that my work team may be expanding. Which is both cool and slightly daunting, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best.
I hope you guys enjoy the coming posts this month, and feel free to let me know your thoughts, I’ll be on hiatus next month but I’ll be back in full force come January. As always, thank you for visiting my blog.

2015 flew by so fast! It was also a busy year for me, I went back to school and completed an internship at a hospital. I also turned my summer part-time job into a full-time temporary one. Furthermore, I was also fortunate enough to attend so many bookish events, and I hope to do more in the new year like, BEA! If you guys are still reading my blog after all this time then, thank you and if its your first time here then welcome and thanks for reading. I hope you all have a wonderful 2016 and that its filled with much joy and opportunity. And I hope you enjoy the reviews I have planned for this month.
