Hey everyone!  So April is over and that means that May is here!

30 more days until a summer of nonstop reading
a ton of books on my TBR list

TV Shows/ Webseries:
I haven't been watching too much because of school, but lately I've gotten into watching Emma Approved on Youtube.  I've also started rewatching just about my favorite TV show ever, Merlin (starring my husband Bradley James).

I can't think of too many that stick out in my mind besides the DVDs that I either owned or borrowed from the library.  I saw Pride and Prejudice (the one with Kiera Knightley) for the first time and SWOONED at the sight of Darcy.  I mean let's be serious here... I also saw  The Illusionist which really is a fantastic movie and if you haven't seen it you should.  Plus, if you've ever seen Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging, you may recognize some characters ;) ALSO, just last week, my mom bought me The Book Thief ! Like the movie version.  I plan on doing a review of this sometime but  I haven't really had the chance to.  Although it might be a good idea to reread it first.  Let me tell ya, watching this movie was more painful the second time.  But all of it was so so so worth it.

AP Exam studying & track and field have pretty much taken up my life, so I haven't had much of a chance to get to reading or anything else really.  But hopefully in May, things will turn up.  Especially because my birthday is on Saturday.  EEP!!

May TBR & Things I'm Excited For!:

Honestly, I have so much on my plate, I'm not even sure how I'm going to balance it all, but because school ends for me at the end of the month, I think I can do it all.


First of all, my most anticipated reads coming out this month that may just be the DEATH of me.

The One (The Selection, #3)City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments, #6)
The One - Kiera Cass & City of Heavenly Fire - Cassandra Clare

And then the regular TBR (& it's a doozy!!)

Dorothy Must Die - Danielle Paige
This Star Won't Go Out - Esther Earl
The Selection Stories - Kiera Cass
Where She Went - Gayle Foreman
Better Off Friends - Elizabeth Eulberg
Howl's Moving Castle - Diana Wynne Jones
Castle in the Air - Diana Wynne Jones
Throne of Glass - Sarah J. Maas
Second Chance Summer - Morgan Matson
Ignite Me - Tahereh Mafi
The Taking - Kimberly Derting
Sea of Shadows - Kelley Armstrong
To All The Boys I've Loved Before - Jenny Han

Now yes, I'm pretty ambitious, but I am ready to take on this challenge (plus I'm participating in Bout of Books 10.0, so you may see some of these there *wink wink*)

Now 4 of the books I've mentioned are on my TBR for a reason.  I'm pretty excited about this & I'm so excited I'll get to meet one of my favorite authors of anything ever.  AKA KIERA CASS THE BAE.

The Summer 2014 Dark Days Tour presented by Epic Reads

I'm so freaking excited that I'll be able to attend this and I'll get my copy of The One signed and I'm literally shaking, because I'm so excited.  I have my library's copy of Dorothy Must Die but I have Sea of Shadows and The Taking on hold at my library.  Whoops.  

Besides bookish things, I'm excited because on Saturday, I turn 18!  And I've convinced my parents that we should see The Amazing Spiderman 2.  YESSSSS.  BRB SWOONING.

That's all for now, and obviously, I'll have some reviews up and running for a lot of these books, so definitely STAY TUNED!  May is gonna be a good month.

May sounds like a good month for you! I have my last exam in two weeks, then here I come non-stop reading and nervous exam grade waiting. Weird to think that I may be graduating in July.

I loved TBF, and am so looking forward to the movie and having my heart broken all over again! x)
