I’m honestly so glad that May is over.
Because that means school is as well!!! I’ve been on summer break for a few days already, and it’s relieving to not have to worry about grades or tests anymore.
All things considered, May was an okay month, but definitely could have been better.
I read 8 books! Unfortunately, I did not manage to read all books by Asian authors because of my library loan deadlines. But I hope I’ll be able to read more next May, and I’m glad I was able to read a little more than last month!!
But I am still so disappointed that over half of the books I read were . . . just not very good?? My dislike of The Bone Witch and You’ve Reached Sam kind of put me in a little reading slump but Iron Widow pulled me out of it :’)
So I kind of didn’t have much motivation to post last month. But it came back (possibly because school is now over) and I am now blogging more than I used to and hopefully will be posting more in June!
- Cherelle @ A Bolt Out of the Book came back from her hiatus! Her blog is gorgeous and I think you should check it out!!
- Birdie @ Birdie’s Booktopia started a new series where she rereads, reviews, and discusses her old favorite books, starting off with One of Us is Lying!
- Noura @ The Perks of Being Noura recommends three of their favorite middle grade books, and this was perfect for me, as someone who wants to read more middle grade.
- Belle @ This Belle Reads Too shares a list of books by Asian authors featuring siblings and I just loved it so much <33
School is officially over for me!!! I still cannot believe it’s over and I’m looking forward to two and a half months of summer and doing absolutely nothing! (For those of you still in school, you can do it!!) It’s been a surreal year of having to complete my freshman year completely online, but hopefully school will be somewhat back to normal in the fall??
I didn’t get to write as much due to finals and so many things going on but I’m feeling more confident about my wip ideas (but not my writing yet aldskfj). I’m also getting distracted by so many new wip ideas that I’m not focusing as much on my main one HELp
Music wise, may or may not have listened to Sour (Olivia Rodrigo’s new album) on repeat much too many times. I loved most of the songs, and it’s nice that she did not disappoint! My favorites from Sour are jealousy, jealousy, brutal, and good 4 u, if anyone was wondering.
how was your may? what good books did you read?? any favorite songs from sour? & if you’re in school, when does summer vacation start for you?
