Two birds one stone - I stumbled upon The Sunday Post Meme hosted by the lovely Caffinated Book Reviewer & the Stacking The Shelves meme hosted by the awesome Tynga's Reviews! It is quite similar to what I'm doing here with my Sunday musings - recapping the week in book blogging universe as well as letting you guys know about what books I bought or received.
Review: The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight By Jennifer E. Smith
A week after being on vacation is hard - my body and my mind are still trying to adjust back into my normal routine! As we leave May behind and enter June, my daily schedule is about to get more complicated! I decided early February this year that I wanted to fast-track a little with my university courses and so I enrolled in summer school! For the month of June I will be taking an intensive Observational Painting course at OCADu here in Toronto. I'm super excited and super nervous about the course mainly because I'm not sure where I stand amongst the group of painters I'll be around. I am officially in the Illustration program at my University but the Observational Painting course I'm taking is in the Drawing & Painting department. I hope the adjustment is not too dramatic and nothing I can't handle!
I guess I should mention here briefly what my focus is with illustration. There are three things I love to do and they are: to draw&paint, to read and to write. I had a dream once where I got the chance to paint the things I read and so born, was my goal of becoming a book cover artist. Still haven't worked out the nitty gritty on becoming 'successful' in this goal of mine but in the mean time I'm enjoying an education in something I love. If anyone wants a portrait painted of them - shoot me an email! If anyone's interested a link to my in progress online portfolio could be found HERE.
This past week was the week of Book Expo America in New York City and yes I am kicking myself each day that goes by because I'm not there and couldn't plan my New York trip to coincide with the expo and con. I'll cross my fingers and pray that I make it NEXT year. For now I'll settle with reading all the awesome tweets about what's happening and seeing all the epic author photos going around Instagram and Twitter!
Did any of you guys attend Book Con? Did anyone meet Jesse Eisenberg? Any books that I should be made aware of and add to my TBR?
