Hey guys! I can’t believe it’s already May…WOW. That means another wrap-up!
what’s been happening in my [real] life?
This month was very…slow? But at the same time I can’t believe it already passed. I don’t know how to describe it. It was definitely less stressful than other months. I feel like things are starting to calm down, but at the same time I’m feeling very much burnt out. Anyways, I don’t want to talk about my burnt out-ness because I talked about it here, but yea.
Nothing really exciting happened, though I am SO excited that the school year is almost over. Just a month and a half left and then I’m DONE with my freshman year of high school.
Oh! I remembered one thing, though! I finally got my braces off after FOUR long, hard years! I’m wearing a retainer for life, but still. Braces are gone!! This was definitely one of my favorite moments of the month, since mostly everything else was boring.
Unfortunately, though, I missed a Maggie Stiefvater signing that I was so excited about. I literally cried for an hour straight because I couldn’t believe that I didn’t go. Next time she comes (she MUST come, otherwise I’m gonna be depressed forever) I have to go. Like I have to.
what’s been happening on my blog?
Because of my burnt-out stage, I also didn’t feel like blogging even though I had the time. That’s why I only wrote these posts, two of which weren’t even necessarily about books:
- Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi | Review & Discussion
- Books I’m Excited for in April/May
- Musing Monday of April 11th, 2016
- Have I Fallen Into…A Slump?
- Bookish Facts About Me (Stalk Me Even Further)
- On Being Burnt Out
Yea, not the best month for blogging, considering the fact that most of these were really boring and not creative posts.
what about bookish updates/wrap-ups?
This month I read TWO books. Well technically I haven’t finished the second one but I will today and I only have 60 pages left. Those books are:
- The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski (4 stars) — review will be coming soon!
- The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater (I haven’t finished it yet but already a five star read.)
And for the first time in I think a year? I bought the same amount of books I read: two. One was TRK, and the other was The Rose and the Dagger, which I will hopefully be reading next!
Another exciting thing that I did was sell 9 books that I didn’t want anymore. I have barely any space for books, and these books I had mostly bought for a dollar. So I posted something on Facebook if people wanted to purchase them for a cheap price, and they all got sold! So I made 30$ for more books, haha!
Like I said: a really boring month. My favorite book is definitely TRK, because DUH, and another highlight was getting my braces off. But other than those, I don’t really remember anything memorable happening. Anyways, May should be an exciting month because I have a lot planned, so hopefully I’ll have more to talk about then!
