Sup, my lovely people! How’s it going? Caan you believe that May is already over? GOODNESS.
MEH. I’M NOT READY FOR JUNE BECAUSE SCHOOL WHICH MEANS LOADS OF WORK. May was a pretty good month because I read 8 books! Double the usual number I’ve read so far in any given month this year. BUUUT, YA KNOW WHAT? SOME OF THE BOOKS I READ WERE PRETTY SHORT (LIKE 220 PAGES PAGES OR SOMETHING) Still, I’m happy that I’m going well ahead of schedule on goodreads! Enough blabbering. Let’s get to the wrap up.
- Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. (Re-read)
- Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan. (Re-read)
- Night by Ellie Wiesel.
- Percy Jackson and the Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan. (Re-read)
- Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.

This month was an okay month from the blogging perspective. I managed to post three reviews, introduced a new feature : PERSPECTIVE PALETTE where I’ll be sharing my photography, participated in my first ever Fierce Fangirl Friday hosted by my sweet pea, Jackie @ toomuchofabooknerd and finally tried my hand at scheduling posts which is AWESOME! I was not pretty consistent in posting: two posts in two consecutive days and then no post at all for a week and then three posts, followed by eight days of no posts but that’s always happening, CAN’T HELP IT YO. Here are the posts that I managed to put out this month:
- Reviewing books *laughs nervously*
- Night by Elie Wiesel
- Favourite Poems (2.0)
- Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
- Perspective Palette : Booktography
- The Happiness Tag

I actually listened to the same thing almost on repeat. What’s that, you may ask? Adele’s album ’25’ . GOSH. I KNOW. IT WAS RELEASED BACK IN 2015 BUT I JUST FLIPPED OVER AND STARTED LISTENING TO IT. AGAIN. BUT. LISTEN TO THESE SONGS FROM ’25’
- LOVE IN THE DARK
- RIVER LEA
- WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE
Additionally, I also listened to these:
- Whatever it Takes by Imagine Dragons
- Rockabye (cover by Madilyn Bailey)
- Galway Girl by Ed Sheeran
I SUCK AT KEEPING UP WITH MY TBR . GUESS I JUST NEED TO REPEAT THE SAME.
THAT’S IT! HOW WAS YOUR MAY? Hope you guys liked this post!-Anj xx
