What did we get up to in April?
Omg how is it May already?! I know I say this every single month, but April literally slipped through my fingers like water. I’ve been quite busy at my job learning about my new clients and doing all the fancy PR stuff (loljks) so I haven’t read all that much this month. I know, it saddens me.
BUT, Kinokuniya was having a 20% sale on graphic novels ahead of Free Comic Book Day and I couldn’t resist buying two. I’m not hooked on Locke & Key, it’s so darn good!
Other than that, April has been pretty quite for me minus a few birthdays and outings with the work team. Hopefully, May will be much better reading wise!
WOW! It’s May?! I can’t believe how quick this year is going already!
Just like Joy, I’ve been super busy at work and actually got to go to my first conference in Bowral this week, which was pretty cool I must say. I’ve also been spending my limited free time trying to catch up with high school friends, and scouring IKEA for new items for my bedroom.
I haven’t had a chance to read much of anything lately, but I’m hoping to get back into it with so many great titles I’ve got my eye on.. including the new Sarah Dessen title which I NEED! *grabby hands*
I hope everyone had a great April… looking forward to an even better May!

I didn’t actually buy any books this month. Totally boring I know, but I’ve been spending my money on my newly decorated room (which isn’t even a tiny bit put together at the moment) and work clothes. When did I become such an adult?!?
