May - Monthly Wrap Up

May was a pretty slow month on the blog compared to April. Both Rachel and I went through a few changes career-wise so we were unable to interact with our readers and other bloggers. Rachel started her internship, I switched jobs and we had to organize the Indie Self-Published Author Event for June so yep, it has been a crazy month! But we definitely enjoyed reading/reviewing our newly acquired books and talking to kick ass authors and great readers/bloggers! 
Stats-wise: Lots of new followers so welcome, we hope you guys are having fun! Thank you so much for all the lovely e-mails, blog post comments, tweets, Goodreads and Facebook messages(553 Likes-Yay!). We might not have had time to return your thoughts but trust me we both loved each and everyone of them! :)
Reviews on the blog: 
The Boyfriend App is a refreshingly fun and cutesy story that readers will surely like!
Stripped was a quick and easy read that keeps you entertained despite the slow start. 
This is a recommended read for the mystery fans out there.
Always Remember is a novel you will surely not forget because it’s a lighthearted read that will make you laugh but at the same time, knock you off your feet.
But the real question is “Would I read the sequel?”
Click to Subscribe is a refreshingly adorable debut novel by Augustine that will surely make your hearts flutter and crave for chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream with rainbow sprinkles on top.
Going Under has it all.
