Hello all, I wanted to do something different this time around and do a “what have I been up to this month” post. This is basically a monthly wrap up to bring the month of May to an end. This month has been amazing for me, because of all of you, my lovely followers. Now, before we get into what I’ve been up to this month, why don’t you go grab your coffee, tea, wine or beer and settle in with me…
What have I been reading:
This month I’ve been introduced to and read so many great books. Some of them you can find the reviews for on the Book Review page, I have organized this page by authors so far. So, you will find pretty much anything from Rom-Com’s to YA reads with a little magic attached to them. You will find lots of 4 star reviews and a 5 star review of a debut novel… Seriously, it was just amazing… I have read a couple other books that I haven’t yet been able to review, but I will get those out in June for you. 🙂
You will also find a short review that I did on a Standalone Sunday post.
What have I been listening to:
Well, I mostly just listen to the XM radio on my drive in and out of work. Some days I am so into that I’ll drive all the way to work, and others I’ll take the train in and read my book… However, one album I actually purchased this month is the new album of Imagine Dragons – I just love anything and everything that’s Imagine Dragons. 🙂 The songs I was able to download of the album that’s not yet out (yuppers, I have pre-ordered it) are amazing. I recommend to everyone if you like that kind of music.
This being said, I had many favorite single’s this month, but only one will forever stick me with me. And that’s Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You. I can just listen to that song at all hours of the day, and it’ll improve my mood. 😉
What have I been watching:
Well, the end of May means, end of all the TV shows that I watch religiously. Criminal Minds, ended in a high note… Grey’s Anatomy, ended in a high note, Bull is about to end, all my cooking shows are over… with the exception of Master Chef Canada which will be over this week. I have lost my Survivor pool but I believe the most deserving person won… Now waiting for Private Eyes and Pitch to start for the summer. 🙂
What else have I been doing this month:
All of this is good and fun, however, this month also held some personal notes for me. First of all, my 2.5 year old daughter is now out of diapers, and I couldn’t be happier about this… Can you believe the cost of those things?? Highway robbery… I tell ya…
Another and most important accomplishment this month for me was to actually push “publish” for the first time. It took a lot of going back and forth, reading, re-reading, re-typing and re-organizing, but let me tell you… when I actually pushed publish and saw people react to what I was writing was an amazing feeling. I had to learn web-design, that I knew nothing about before I started on this journey, I had to get re-familiarized with writing again and I had to get re-acquainted with my love for reading. This is still a very young blog, however, it’s growing because of you all and I couldn’t be more appreciative of your support.
Keep your eyes open for a give away coming soon on my Facebook page. Thank you all for reading and sharing my passion with me and have a great night/day.
Tell me how your month went, and what you’ve been up to lately…?
