Wow. We are here. We’ve reached the six month mark in the “new
year” 2017. Though this post is last (I
know!), I still wanted to post my monthly recap.
Another month’s close means another “month in review” here
on Finding Wonderland. Let’s take a look.
»Favorites from May 2017«
1. Armchair Book Expo
| Since I still haven’t made it to the actual BEA event, I again joined the fabulous fun of Armchair Book Expo (the from-home virtual version). Search the ‘Armchair BEA 2017
‘ tag to check out the fun or find lots of the posts in my “popular” posts down below!
2. Camera | After weeks of “agonizing” over what to get, and searching for deals, I finally got a camera! While it’s still in the early stages in terms of learning all the ins and outs, and how to work all the darn settings, I’m crazy excited to have a decent DSLR.
3. Dancing with the Stars | Retired Cubs player (and all-around good guy) David Ross along with partner Lindsay Arnold (love her as a DWTS pro) came in second in the latest DWTS season. While I’d have loved to see him win, and enjoyed that it was America who supported him (he is the “heart” of what that show should be), it was great to see football player Rashad Jennings (another great contestant!) and his partner Emma win (glad to see a pro who hasn’t won take the trophy).
4. INSPYs | We’re currently posting our author interviews! Make sure to come by and meet all the shortlist authors. INSPYs.com
5. Summer Blockbusters | The summer season of blockbusters
is in full swing. There are two out I still want to see (‘Pirates’ and Wonder Woman), but the one summer flick
(albeit not a blockbuster) I did see – Everything,
Everything, I really enjoyed. What have you seen and loved?
Tressa and I are hosting another #WishfulWonder Bookstagram
challenge. The fun began on June 1st
! All the details can be found
in our introduction post.

Silver Petticoat: I’ve been allowing myself a “lighter” schedule over on Silver Petticoat while I get through other commitments, but I still hang out there and love it. Here’s a recap look at what I contributed to
the amazing webzine, Silver Petticoat.
TV Recaps | None. Breaking from recaps for now.
As always, thanks to the editors of Silver Petticoat and my
fellow contributors! Working with you all is always fun.
That’s an end to the month here at #FindingWonderlandBlog.
