May Wrap Up

How can it be June!? I don't understand! Wasn't yesterday still April? It feels like it was!

So I would normally put my challenges update right about here...except I literally have no idea where I stand on any of the challenges I was doing... Oops? I might try to figure it out later this month but I also might just...give up? It's so hard to keep up with!

In Real Life:

Basically, I failed at all the things this month! I was super busy, I moved and then there was a ton of stuff to do after the move and just all kind of things. I posted like..10 posts and some don't even count cause they were just updates! I did read 10 books though so that wasn't too bad! But...for the first time in like a year I went nearly the full month without writing. Blasphemous!

I had slumps this month. For two weeks I didn't feel like reading much. Then all I did was read. All month I barely blogged and just couldn't really make myself feel like blogging. Likewise with writing. I wanted to write I just couldn't seem to make myself, you know?

I also got an ice cream maker and started making homemade sugar-free ice cream and it's AMAZING. Also, spent this weekend dying my hair so that the left side of my head is now blue and the right black.
*some of the blue is a little darker than the rest because I was lazy and didn't want to bleach a second time to make it all really bright.

Plans For Next Month:

Well, it's been months since I posted a feature(Ships I Ship, Ships I Don't Ship), I've also been neglacting Top Ten Tuesday and basically everything that is not a review, so blogwise I'm hoping to find time to do a few of those things.

As for writing I'm getting back to work, I'm editing one novel and FINALLY, completely rewriting what was my first novel, which I haven't worked on in about two years... It's kind of scary actually.

The Books:
Sadly, recently I've read a handful or more of disappointing books. They didn't completely suck but also weren't amazing.

Top 3 Reads Of May:

25465559 The Lady In Blue by Kimberly G. Giarratano
This book was everything I wanted in a sequel/companion novel to Grunge Gods and Graveyards which is a book I love so much. Also, the author is super nice and so awesome and gives me partial credit for inspiring her to write a sequel which is just really awesome all by itself.

 Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
So this is actually a graphic novel but I loved it so much! It's all about heroes and villains and is so well written and fun. The art is also amazing and I just want to read it again and again!

 The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace
Just one of the best fantasy books I've read in a long time. I loved it so much!

Top 1 2 Disappointment Of May:

Your turn! How was your month? Tell me all about BEA if you went, please? And what was your favorite book of the month!?


  1. Oh, yes! I'm so glad you liked The Storyspinner. I can't wait to see your review of it! :) My month was pretty fine. I read a lot in the beginning, and almost nothing at the end. :/ I also went to London, and to the Making of Harry Potter, Warner Bros Studio Tours. Which was freaking amazing! :) Oh, and the best book I read in May was ACOTAR by Sarah J. Maas.

    1. I am soooo jealous! You went to London and the Making Of Harry Potter tour! I'm glad you had so much fun!

      And yes, Storyspinner was as amazing as you said, so thanks for that! =) I'm really interested in ACOTAR, but haven't read it yet!

  2. Oh, dyeing our hair is such a pain but it needs to be done. I'm currently in love with my pink hair but I would love to try turquoise next. But that's after I have retouched my roots.

    End of days - omo! I'm excited to read this one. The first and second book was really good. I heard some of my friends are disappointed with this book too but I will still gonna give it a try.

    1. I know, right? Such a pain but sooo worth it! I love turquoise and it's been a while since I did pink, though technically I had red last and it faded to pink for the last month or so! =)

      Eh. I was kind of very disappointed with End Of Days, but I think that's partly because I missed out on all the excitement about it. I loved the first but was kind meh about the second so I never had the highest of hopes for the third. I really hope you enjoy it though!
