Happy Cinco de Mayo πŸ’ƒπŸͺ…πŸ‡²πŸ‡½

May 5th is Cinco de Mayo. It commemoratesΒ the Battle of Puebla in 1862. I didn’t really know a lot about how this celebration came to be, just that we ate Mexican food.

It’s Beginning to Feel a Lot Like Christmas – 3 #BookReviews of #Audiobooks: Meet Me in London, Mistletoe Season, Sleigh Bells Ring @HarperAudio @michelle_major1 @ToffTalks

I am well into reading Christmas stories as well as reading books for my 20 Books for Christmas Challenge. Each of the books here was available in both ebook and audiobook. I did a read/listen and enjoyed them all in both formats. The audiobooks were all well done and added to my enjoyment of the stories. All were provided to me by the publishers upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

Three Holiday Romances: Keep Me Warm at Christmas, The Matzah Ball & A Little Christmas Spirit @harperaudio @HarlequinBooks #MIRA #BookReview #Audiobook

I am getting into the holiday spirit and Christmas magic, holiday romance, and new beginnings are all things I love about these stories. I had both ebooks and audiobooks for all three of these stories and did a read/listen (more listen than read to be honest) with each of them. The pubishers generously provided me with copies of these books upon request. The ratings and opinions shared are my own.

πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ To all my fellow Canadians, I wish you a very Happy Victoria Day. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Victoria Day is a federal Canadian public holiday celebrated on the last Monday preceding May 25. Initially in honour of Queen Victoria’s birthday, it has since been celebrated as the official birthday of Canada’s sovereign. It is informally considered to be the beginning of the summer season in Canada. I listened and watched a lot of fireworks over the weekend. πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‡πŸŽ†βœ¨
