This week I am waiting on

When assassins ambush her best friend, the crown prince, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing her ability to perform all seven kinds of elemental magic. The only people who should possess this extraordinary power are a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light and salvation and a queen of blood and destruction. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven trials to test her magic. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.
It only took 5 months but my reading mojo is back! May has been a blessing in disguise for me. I actually managed to read more than my average 2 books this month and I am over the moon with it. Who knew all it took was some heartache and sadness from the Winner’s Trilogy to snap me out of my slump. I have to say The Winner’s Trilogy has solidified its place as an all time favourite series. My heart suffered for it but the end result made it all worth it. After finishing that trilogy I really did not want to read another heavy book so I turned to Katie McGarry. Her books are addictive and the guys in her books are some of my favorite book boyfriends. So it’s safe to say I had a productive reading month.
And we have officially entered the year’s halfway mark. Where has the time gone?
This has been a very, very, very slow reading month and I’ve found myself in a bit of a slump. I’ve just not really been in the mood to read. On top of that it’s been so hot and sunny here (which is a rare occurrence) that I’ve been outside most days so I’ve been slacking on the commenting.
With this reading slump hitting me in full force, I have made some progress in checking off my TV watch list. I’ve finished Season 5 of The Walking Dead. The current season of The Flash and Arrow have both come to an end and I’ve started watching the first season of Grimm. So something good has come out of the slump.
In terms of life moments, things have been busy. To start, Middle-Earth has been calling me for quite some time; so I had to answer and I am off to New Zealand for the month September, which basically means I’ve spent the past few weeks planning and organising and saving up. I’ve also found myself working 3 part time jobs, which is chaotic and tiring but hey, every little helps.
This is how May treated me blogging wise.
