April has gone and May has arrived! It’s been two months now since NYC has been on a pause and it’s been a whirlwind. I have been keeping myself busy with work, reading, cooking and watching Hulu/Netflix with my husband. We have been binging on TLC’s 90 Day Fiance, Happily Ever After and The Family Chantel. As you can see, we are really into it. We have yet to see the current season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, but has seen the memes and all – we are waiting for it to finish, so we can binge.
Back to books – even though we have been stuck at home, it was a bit hard to read in the beginning, but then I got my groove back. I got through three books this month, even though, I had set my expectations to five.
