May 2017 Recap: A Month of (Kinda) Productivity

I started actually DOING things. Like commenting on other blogs + Twitter-ing + projects.

Like I said in my Updates post.

And I’m happy because I:

  • read REALLY AWESOME books!
  • started writing again (well, kind of.)
  • um
  • wait, did I do other stuff?

books i read edit

Well, I only read like six books this month??? And I actually had ONE FAVORITE but the other threes were really good!

Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh ★★★★★

  • SOOO good. I love Renee Ahdieh forever. [review]

Always and Forever by Jenny Han★★★★★

  • Perfect ending to one of my favorite series!! [review]

Beauty and the Beast by Elizabeth Rudnick ★★★★☆

  • Almost exactly the same as the movie. But I loved the movie, so it was good. [mini review]

Geekerella by Ashley Poston ★★★★☆

The Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana ★★★★☆

  • TBH at first I didn’t like it as much but if you stay IT GETS SO GOOD. [unfinished review]

The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan

And yes, I said unfinished review BECAUSE I AM SUPER LAZY and am ALWAYS putting “Review to Come” except for the books that I REALLY REALLY like.

So, um, this was not the best reading month?? I read like 15 books in March WHAT HAPPENED TO ME.

And also. Why. Is. Beauty and the Beast. So. Small. #readerproblems (and also I made a post about it! Here.)

Books to Read

So I’m going to aim for like, at least 7 books next month because I think I am in a slow reading slump. Woe me*. But these are the books EVERYONE HAS RECOMMENDED THAT I READ so I’m FINALLY GOING TO DO IT**.
