Monthly Wrap Up

Monthly Wrapup: April 2016

IT’S FINALLY MAY! Who else is excited? This may (haha) be one of my favorite months of the year. First rays of sunshine, flowers blooming, trees blossoming, birds singing AND some holidays  this month so you know what that means: MORE READING TIME YO!

But anyway, this wrapup is not about May, but about April. April was kind of… meh. Like one of those months where you’re only waiting for exciting things to happen some time in the future. In general that is. Reading wise, I think April was pretty good. I read not one, but two 5 star books. And the other ones were pretty good too.

So without further ado, here’s my April wrapup!

What I listened to

Honestly, the only reason this list contains any songs other than Troye Sivan is because of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. Ever since reading that book I’ve been listening to Tegan and Sara and Elliott Smith on repeat. All day. Every day. #noregrets

Tegan and Sara – Closer

Elliott Smith – Waltz #2 (XO)

Troye Sivan – Talk Me Down

 What I Watched

This month has been pretty low on quality tv time, but here’s what I did manage to keep up with:

  • The 100
    Sooo goood! I love this show so much but it also hurts me so much. Stop killing people, show!
  • Arrow
    Talking about killing people – WHAT THE F DID YOU DO THAT FOR, SHOW? Seriously, WTF?

 What’s on the May TBR

May 2016 TBR

Disclaimer: This month’s TBR is tentative at best. I really want to read these books but SO MANY GLORIOUS NEW BOOKS come out in May and chances are they will be distracting me from any previously set TBR. (Especially the epic amazingness that is ACOMAF!)

  • Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch
  • The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
  • Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry


  1. Great reading month!!

    I love The Raven Boys so much, I hope you enjoy it too 😀 I know what you mean about getting distracted about all the new books coming out this month though, haha. There’s so many!!

    1. Thanks! I have really high hopes for The Raven Boys, but I’m sure I’ll love it 🙂 And May is CRAZY with all these new releases, I don’t know where to start!
