May Wrap Up + Book Haul

May was a bad month for me personally speaking! Blogging last week was tough, if you guys noticed I wasn’t around much. I am also drowned in work and get so tired at the end of the day, writing for the blog becomes difficult. Though, I have read a lot of books.

I am hoping that June is much better. So I am hoping to get some more posts up and work some ideas I have for the blog. Without further ado, let’s get into it!

Personal 

I am starting Uni again in the month of August and I have made up my mind to enjoy as much as I can with my friends and family. With that in mind, I went to Lonavala for a trip with a few friends to celebrate a birthday! I don’t have a lot of pictures since I was so busy enjoying myself. Next time, I promise I will!

We stayed for 3 days in this huge farmhouse with lots of food, games and dancing! It was a lot of fun.

 

How many books did you buy/get in May?

Have you read any of them above?

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim

Top Ten Tuesday meme that was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic:

Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim

Usually, if I want to keep reading within the same genre, I go on to Goodreads and find a list of books that fall under the same genre. Once I have a list of books I like, I buy the Kindle version of the books. And if I really love the book, I go buy the physical copy.

But these books were all bought simply because I saw them on the kindle store and either the name intrigued me or the cover. For the majority of the books in this list, I will be honest; I do not know what they are about. They are all on my TBR list.

 

I have read The Testing series and you can read my review here.

What are the books you bought on a whim? Have you read any of the books I mentioned? What did you think of them? Share the link to your Top Ten Tuesday and I promise I will visit! 😀 

Mini Book Review: Eleanor And Park And Saint Anything

I haven’t posted anything for a while but that does not mean i haven’t been reading. In fact I have been reading a lot. Work this week was very crazy and I just could not write anything. I had a Top Ten Tuesday post ready but when I posted it the formatting was terrible, so I had to take it down.

Anyways, I am doing a mini review of all the books I read this week. I am trying something different so let me know if you like it. Continue reading “Mini Book Review: Eleanor And Park And Saint Anything”
