Month in Review: May 2017

Goodbye May...Hello June!!! As this post goes live, I will be in NYC at BookExpo. This is the 3rd time I've attended, though I skipped a year - I did  not attend last year when it was in Chicago. I have a list of books I'm hoping to pick up, authors I'm hoping to see and publishers/publicists I'm hoping to meet with, plus I'm hoping to get some sight-seeing in while in the city for the week. I'll be putting a post together once I get back as well as tweeting and posting some bookish pics to my Instagram account (if you want to follow me there, I can be found at @k2reader).

*Kathyrn over at The Book Date has created a Month in Review meme for those who put together these monthly posts. From now on, I'll be linking my post up each month...Thanks Kathryn for putting this meme together!!!



  1. I've been really curious about Into the Water. The blurb grabs me more than Girl on the Train which I never could get into so I think I might have to give Paula Hawkins another try.

  2. It sounds like May was a great reading month! I've been interested in the new Paula Hawkins. I hope you're having a lovely time at the book convention. Happy June!
