WHAT. A. MONTH.
So, let me just update you guys…
WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! Sort of…
We spoke with a contractor and drew up plans for our forever home. The contract is signed and we’re signing the final plans tonight actually! It has been such a tiresome process looking at homes after work and on weekends that we loved but had issues with or found things we wanted to change in the long run. Little did we know, the budget we were working with could get us EXACTLY what we wanted and BRAND NEW nonetheless! We’re stoked. It’s going to be December 2019-early 2020 before it’s done but we’re so excited and more than ready to leave apartment life behind.
With that said, I was only able to throw down with 5 books this month. Which is ok! I’m still ahead on my reading goal and I plan to read a LOT when we move in with my parents while we wait for our home to be completed.
I also got a promotion at work that keeps me incredibly busy. I love it, though! I’m not able to read like I was during the time spent in my last position but I do enjoy being up and busy all day. It makes the days fly by! No wonder May raced past me without my noticing!
This month definitely wasn’t the best in the way of books I loved but it wasn’t the worst either.
But let me tell you what WAS the best… SPIN THE DAWN BY ELIZABETH LIM. That book wrecked me in all of the best ways. Go read my review where I lose my mind over this book HERE.
I also got to participate in my first ever buddy read with the Dragons & Tea Book Club which was literally the greatest. I am so thankful that I was invited to the group and I am loving meeting the other members and reading their thoughts while sharing my own. The book blogging community is one of the greatest parts of my life. Everyone is so positive and uplifting and I find it so effortless to fall into step with the community.
I also recieved my first award this month! I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Hannah over at But First, Fiction and I’m honestly still super ecstatic about it.
May has been a whirlwind. I feel like it came and went all too quickly and I’m hoping that June will take it’s time with me as I need all the time I can get to knock out my tbr pile!
I know things will still be hectic as we prepare to leave our apartment and embark on our extended sleepover at my parent’s place and I’m sure they’ll be even more hectic as the house is being built and decisions need to be made. But I’m hoping I can slip into the book realm every now and then in between all these responsibilities so I can check out from reality and check into some wonderful book worlds. 🖤
Ooo cool call on including how many pages you read in a wrap up. I might start doing that too!

Thanks! One day a coworker asked me how many pages I read in a typical month. I told her I had no idea but now I was curious! And so began the page count!
