Hello all, and happy May! I can’t believe it’s already May, but I’m super pumped for it to start getting warmer outside. Even though I had a pretty chill April in my personal life, I still managed to disappear a bit from the blogosphere. No worries though! I have no intention of leaving any time soon.
This month, I did manage to read five whole books, even though three of them I finished in the last few days of the month. Also, technically I finished Geekerella on May 1st, but it was around 12:30 AM, so I’m counting it in April. This month, I’ll be summing up the book in three words and posting my reviews in another section.
- The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas | ★★★★★ | Powerful, gripping, insightful
- Scythe by Neal Shusterman | ★★★★☆ | Unique, fun, flamethrowers
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern | ★★★★★ | Beautiful, enchanting, magical
- Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller | ★★★☆☆ | PIRATES, sass, adventures
- Geekerella by Ashley Poston | ★★★★★ | Geek heaven, heartwarming
Yikes, April once again was not the best blogging month. I’ve seemed to develop this pattern of not posting in the Spring months very much. However, I’m determined to change this!
TOP 5 WEDNESDAY
BOOK TAG SUNDAY
Sadly, I didn’t get up any Tea Time Talk posts last month, although I’ve been brainstorming a bunch of ideas recently and wrote them down in my BuJo. Also, if you all would like to see a bullet journal update, just let me know! I’d love to do one.
For my monthly wrap ups, I’d also like to include a section of my favorite posts from you all for the month. Unfortunately, I wasn’t active enough in April to do this, but I’m going to try my best during May!
Alright, part of the reason why I wasn’t as active on my blog last month was the fact that I had some pretty cool (and crazy) things going on in my life. In the beginning of April, the wind ensemble at my high school had a chance to travel to New York City and perform in Carnegie Hall. This was an absolutely amazing experience, because it is so difficult to get to play in Carnegie.
I’ve never been to New York before this trip, and I fell in love with the city. The vibe and the whole atmosphere is quite different from what I’m used to, which was good exposure. Although, when people tell you that New Yorkers are mean, they aren’t kidding.
On a completely different note, I started my final quarter at school, and I’ll be graduating high school (and college with my associates degree) in just over a month. I also confirmed my enrollment to university, so things are going to changing for me soon. I’m super pumped for this new stage in my life, and you may just see some university related posts coming up in the Fall…
How was you month? An exciting books that you read or obtained? Have you ever been to NYC? Let me know, I love talking with you all!
