May was a crazy month !! It’s back to work full-time and like I mentioned in my last post, when I got offered one week off I decided to pack my things and went to Europe 😂 Hasta la vistaa babyy ✈️ I just came back this morning and I’m so exhausted. Jet Lagged AS FUCK. Can’t wait to tell you guys all about it !

NOW ITS REST TIMEE!!

Lashaan

It has been quite the busy life going back to a full-time working schedule for the summer. The routine is insane! Slowly but surely, I’m trying to find a flow that works and so far it has been nice. I still need to manage time even better to plug in some things I need to do. Everything is a process anyways, right? All that being said, I hope everyone is making the most of the end of spring and start of summer!

    If I had your folks busy schedule I’d definitely not be blogging the way you do. So my hats off to you both!

    Trang: Honestly, I think you were insane for using that week off to travel and get all exhausted, but I guess it takes every kind right? 🙂
    I do hope you have pictures for a travel post, as that would be nice to see.

    Lashaan: I am really glad that Sins of Empire keeps up the quality that McClellan started in his powder mage books. Gives me something good to look forward to 😀

    1. Hahah thanks man. I think there’s a little too much addiction that plays into all that. I’m really surprised by how much time I pour into blogging and reading nowadays. I must really want to escape reality or something. 😀

      Absolutely. He’s releasing another book soon that doesn’t seem to have anything to do with flintlock fantasy too. I’m curious to see how he delivers on that end. Happy reading, sir. 😀

  8. Great recap both of you, and it seems like you each had a great month despite it being busy. Trang I’m so glad to see Scythe made your favourite book of the month list. I’m planning to start that very soon and now I’m even more excited to pick it up. Also Lashaan I hope you manage to find a flow that works. I will say the amount given the amount you already manage to blog you already see way more productive than me and I have a semi-decent schedule already. 😀
    Great post, and I hope you both have a great June as well. 🙂 ❤

    1. You’re definitely an inspiration when it comes to scheduling posts and publishing consistently though, Beth! I am often really impressed by how many posts you are able to put up per week, and still blog hop around without any issues! Happy reading, Beth! 😀

    Some great books there. How was Hyperion, Trang? I’ve wanted to read it but haven’t yet worked my way to it.
    Hope the Grey Bastards goes good for you, Lashaan. I tried it earlier this year, but it didn’t work out for me.
