Monthly Recap

Hi guys! It's finally MAY! May is always a favorite month of mine because it means summer is coming and I get a break from teaching!
This May will feel quite different because, for the first time in 9 years, I will not be returning to the classroom after the school year ends. I have loved being a high school Spanish teacher, but it's finally time to move on. I will be making the move to New York City this June to pursue a career in publishing. I am so excited about the opportunity I have and am looking forward to starting a new chapter in my life.
Hence the reason for my hiatus. I have been MIA from the blog these last couple of weeks and even more so from the social media world for the last couple of months, as I have been making preparations. This month will probably be the craziest of all, so I am going to just post when I can.
I did manage to get some reading in this past month, as I have been trying to read some books off my shelves. (I know that I can't bring two bookcases full of books to the city with me, as I won't be living alone.)
My favorite read this month goes to Addicted by Elle Kennedy. I just love this series so much!

  7. YAY to your new move! Do you have a job yet? Keep us posted! I also read ADDICTED last month and I LOVED IT! *sighs* That book was so hot and was loaded with feels. I read ME BEFORE YOU a couple of months ago and it broke my heart. The movie is going to kill me. I enjoyed PAPER PRINCESS, but that ending was a killer. I can't wait for the next book. I'm glad to see you liked WHEN WE COLLIDED because I've been hearing mixed things about it and I adore Emery's other books.

    Glad you are back to blogging too! The Unexpected Everything is so good, I hope you love it!

  9. I always hear from students that they love summer because they get a break from school, so funny to hear the same thing from a teacher. I wish you good luck and I hope everything would be great career-wise and in life in general.

    I’ve heard positive things about Addicted by Elle Kennedy, thanks for remanding me about it. I loved Me Before You and Paper Princess too.
