May really did fly by so fast! In two months I’ll be going on what will probably be the last family vacation with my entire family as we’re all getting older and would rather do our own thing now. Until then I plan to have fun weekly outings to make up for the fact that I’ll be in over my head with work especially since I’ll be losing my assistant for the summer. Fortunately, I also have a couple of book event this month to look forward to as well! In the meantime, I can’t wait to share my thoughts on this month’s book picks as they’re probably some of my favourite titles of the year as not only are they great reads but they’re also quite diverse as well!

Happy May Day! April was more of a bookish month than usual as I attended the Frenzy Presents event at the new HarperCollins Canada offices which had some amazing views, as well as an authour conservation between one of my favourite authours, Kim Thúy and Jess Allen from The Social. It was surprisingly an incredibly hilarious and fun talk!
In other news, we’ve finally got some decent weather where I live and I’m hoping for the warmer weather to come and stay for a long time. Work wise there’s going to be some significant changes coming and my contract is up in two months so it’s both exciting and stressful not knowing what’s going to happen but I hope things will turn out okay. Anyways hope you guys had a good month, and that May will be just marvellous. As always I hope you enjoy the posts this month, and I’ll “see” you guys again in June.

February was an interesting month filled with much change. I’ve finally submitted my vacation request and if all goes well I’ll be heading to Asia with the fam this summer! In blogging news, I’m finally on Edelweiss and it’s given me more access to new titles which I hope to feature on the blog. I’m also thinking of experimenting with other kinds of blog posts and memes on this blog as its probably boring to just have only book reviews?
