On the Road: Toronto

As most of you know, I took a month hiatus from blogging from Mid-May until Mid-June. Posts were still scheduled, but I rarely interacted on the blog. So, today’s post is going to be a little different than my usual book-related discussions as I spotlight the highlights of my trip to Canada.

The experience itself was incredible overall. I met some amazing people, reconnected with my relatives, explored some epic cities, and learned a lot about myself along the way. I’ll go into details about that in a future post, but for today I’m going to talk about the first leg of my trip. Toronto.

Top Ten Tuesday: Summer TBR 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I’ve talked about why I don’t typically set a TBR list. So I like to think of this as a wish list of books I’d like to read in the Summer. I only ticked off two books on my Spring TBR, so I’ve not mentioned the books on that list as they’ve already been carried over to this list. Here are the books I hope to read this Summer.

What I’ve Been Watching #4

This is the first official post since my return from Canada and I am already itching to fly back out. During my time there I didn’t actually watch a lot of productions. The first three films I mention in this post were my in-flight entertainment. However, sometimes you need a Netflix and chill night just to unwind after the day’s activities so I did some casual viewing on the side. The only stress inducing viewing was the Stanley Cup Playoffs. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire series. Not gonna lie, my shouty voice came out a few times because I was so frustrated with some of the plays I’d seen. Anyway, here’s a list of what I’ve been watching.
