April Wrap Up and May TBR

Greetings readers!

Life right now is in a lull for me. My university is literally trying to crush my will with anxiety. Even the promise of summer vacation does not cheer me. It’s just a big disaster right now, but I will not bore you with details.

The only silver lining I can really find in this mess right now is that I have had a lot more time to read and blog. I’m still never “ahead” of schedule, but I try. And I am making good progress! I actually made a blog calendar that looks all cutesy to keep me on track for this month, hopefully it does its job, so I can do my job.

Looking back at April, it was pretty good. I got in some good reads and even better buys!

This time around I’m going to add in a little update on my TV life too because PEOPLE. I have been watching some shows.

HOLY MOLY! I READ 10 BOOKS. 10. AND STARTED AN 11TH btw. I know I said that reading more than like 3 books a month is nearly impossible for me, but as my dear Nikolai Lanstov says, “When people say impossible, they usually mean improbable.” (BTW did you see the King of Scars Cover Reveal because I am still raving about it.)


THE HAUL

Prodigy and Champion: Graphic Novels by Marie Lu

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

That’s it…..? Huh, I thought I had gotten more books. It’s good that I didn’t though, I have big books coming so I must save up!!!

TV/ MEDIA ENTERTAINMENT

I have watched TV and I have watched movies. Lately I have had enough time to do both! So let me tell you about all the great and wonderful things to watch.

If you want to laugh, cry and get angry all in one sitting, you need to watch this show. If you hate laughing, crying and getting angry at the same time, you still NEED to watch this show. I HAVE BEEN BLOWN AWAY. It all started in a big Snap Chat group with my friends, they were raving about it and I was there like okay. Soon enough everyone in the chat watched it and I was the only one left. With some added pressure of everyone sending memes and I not getting the jokes, I went forth and watched the show.

I LOVE IT SO MUCH. AND I AM SO THANKFUL IT HAS BEEN RENEWED FOR A SEASON TWO BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE CRIED IF I WAS LEFT WITH THAT ENDING!

GO FORTH AND WATCH IT NOW. If you want a diverse, funny and a m a z i n g show to fill your hearts, WATCH ON MY BLOCK!!!

 

Then I watched Avengers: Infinity War

I was destroyed.

Then I watched it again.

And was left in anguish.

That ending. It happened. They did that.

I don’t need to tell you to watch it, just do it!

I have quite a month plan ahead. I don’t know what life will throw at me next that I will have to go through that might interrupt my plans, but that is alright I guess.

Let me know what you think! What was your favourite read from April? What books did you buy? What shows/movies did you watch? What book are you most looking forward to in May?

Happy reading!

  1. Ooooooooooooooooooooooooh, Rendz!!! Sounds like not only a great month, but a wondrous month ahead!!! I can’t wait to see what you think of Furyborn, and you get to read your Penderwicks!!!!! So sorry uni is crushing Rendz. 😦 I hope it gets better for you soon. D: Wonderful wrap-up as always! ❤

    • Thanks, Mandy! May just might be my favourite month this year so far! I can’t wait to start Furyborn! I will be getting to it very soon and update constantly so you know all my thoughts! Uni might be a slump-motivator but not this month. Not with the Penderwicks and Legendary coming. Nope. It’s time to get to work! XD

  2. I saw Infinity War in the cinemas two times and some of my friends went three or four times. I was in shock after the first time, I couldn’t believe what had just happened! I hope you’re able to get through all the books on your tbr – Furyborn is on my tbr pile too but there’s about five books in front of it so i’m not too sure i’ll be able to get to it before the end of the month!

    • Wow! Your friends must have really loved to feel the pain of the ending! XD I’m still in a bit of shock and can’t wait for the next movie. I’m currently getting through Furyborn right now, it took me a while to get to it because I had so many other reads to get to first. I hope you enjoy it whenever you get the chance to read it!
