It's finally hot again! I love summer. I love being able to sit outside, I love going on walks, and I love summer fashion. So, I am thrilled that summer weather is back. It definitely brightens up my mood. Anyways, here's what happened in May:
What I Read:
The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline: 5/5 stars
24 Hours in Ancient Rome by Phillip Matyszak: 3/5 stars
Shadows Cast by Stars by Catherine Knutsson: 4/5 stars
Lost in the Never Woods by Aiden Thomas: 4/5 stars
Will My Cat Eat by Eyeballs? by Caitlin Doughty: 4/5 stars
The Voyage to Avalon by Julie Leung: 4/5 stars
All Boys Aren't Blue by George M. Johnson: 4/5 stars
You Say It First by Katie Cotugno: 2/5 stars
Favourite Book: I re-read The Marrow Thieves to prepare for my masters degree and I loved it even more the second time around. It is a hard read, but it is full of some amazing characters and a powerful storyline. Please give it a read.
What I Blogged:
I didn't post too much in May, but I did combine my love for Marvel with my love for books by Fancasting Book Characters with Marvel Characters. It was a fun crossover for sure :)
Favourite Posts of the Month:
Shayna shares some information about working in a library in Library Life: Holds Slips

Nyx asks: Why Are YA Books Always Set in Summer?
At the beginning of May I got my wisdom teeth taken out. It was pretty quick and mostly painless, and I'm just happy to have gotten it over with. One thing that really bummed me out was not being able to eat all the foods I love for a good week. I would watch my sister eat candy and it really put my mood off haha! But, I'm all good now :)
I also got my first dose of Covid vaccine! I am so happy, because Canada's vaccine rollout has been terrible. While I did get some side effects, they were so worth it. If you are eligible, go get vaxxed!
The end of the month has been pretty busy. I am attending some conferences on Indigenous literature to prepare myself for September, and I also have to prepare for virtual graduation in June. I am a pretty shy person so a virtual graduation was a welcome thing for me, but of course I would much rather have an in-person graduation then be in a global pandemic. I guess it's just one of the sacrifices we have to make.
Other than that, I've been doing as much work as I can outside in the beautiful weather. I said this already, but I just love summer so much. I am looking forward to many more sunny days ahead.
That was my May. How was yours?
