// may recap 2016 //

One day I'll manage to do these at the actual end of the month instead of a week into the next one, I swear. 

Life + On the Blog

-SCHOOL IS OVER.  I'm done, peoples. Words can't express how drained I am. I slaved over studying, and had many (stupid) stress breakdowns. But I got high marks that I'm extremely proud of, so all is okay in the long run. 

-Civil War came out, and there were ALL the Bucky feels. It was fantastic and I've already seen it twice. The latter of which was wonderful because we went during the day and there was absolutely no one in the theater besides my mother and me. We were so loud and made so many comments out loud. I probably screamed "BUCKY!" about twenty times. It was terrific.

-I found a glowing tree and I highkey want it. My parents dragged me out of the house during the weekend in an attempt to get me out of my finals slump, and we went to a little run-down mall nearby. The mall itself was pretty sad and dreary, but one shop was fairly neat. AND IT HAD A LIGHT UP FAKE TREE. Isn't it gorgeous??? ^-^

-Posting on the blog this month lacked immensely, but I did get some things up that I'd been wanting to for a while, and I think I did alright considering May was the busiest/stressful month this year. :)

My personal blog favorites were: The Hamilton Book Tag// May Playlist

Favorites from other blogs:  Things That Are Okay (The Permission Slip)//I Met Maggie Stiefvater (so jealous yet so happy for Anna)// That Spoiled Booknerd//

May Books Read: 8 
{links to ones that have reviews}
Kind of a sucky month for reading a lot of books, but most of what I read was terrific, so it was okay.

A Court of Mist and Fury- Sarah J Maas: 6/5 stars {this thing was so freaking good and caused such a major slump. it wins everything + is currently number one on my list of favorites. so. freaking. fantastic.}
The Last Star- Ricky Yancey: 3/5 or 5/5 stars. {it was a conflicting end and i still don't know how I feel about it. all i do know is that i hate rick yancey.}
Hamilton: The Revolution- Lin-Manuel Miranda: 5/5 stars {'twas utter perfection}
Shiver- Maggie Stiefvater (reread): 5/5 stars

May Book Haul
I went on a partial book buying ban this month, and didn't even go into a bookstore for about a week and a half. I was doing so well, and then a nearby store announced a sale where if you bought one you got two for a dollar. And I of course couldn't pass that up, thus my insanely large collection for the month. {My excuse is that I'm stockpiling for summer}

A Court of Mist and Fury// The Problem With Forever (current read)// The Coldest Girl in Coldton (current read)// The Last Star// Symptoms of Being Human// Half Bad// Girl Against the Universe// The Hidden Oracle// The Crown's Game// Unrivaled// The Darkest Part of the Forest// The Way Back To You// Challenger Deep// The Darkest Minds// Never Fade// Somewhere Among//

And that's it! I hope you enjoyed my little recap for the month. I know they're not terribly exciting, but I enjoy compiling everything together, to look back on the month.

Have a lovely morning/day/evening/night. Don't forget to smile for me, because you're so lovely. ^-^

Let's chat! How was your May? Read any good books? Do anything fun? TELL ME ALL THE THINGS! 


  1. That tree is insanely pretty?? I need one right now!

    I'm super glad to hear you got good marks at school -- and I'm also glad you can enjoy summer stress free now, too. :)

    I can't wait to read your review of Half Bad. It's a series I keep umm-ing and ahh-ing about picking up, so it'll be good to see what you think. Might finally give me a push one way or another!

    Hope June is filled with more glowing trees, a lot less stress, and all of the chilled out reading sessions ever, ever. ^_^
