Another month has flown by!

I actually surprised myself by how much reading I got done, but I also was highly motivated because I was going on vacation and I knew I would need to get ahead on my posts!

I knocked out the following books on my TBR this month…

  1. Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks
  2. Dreamland by Sarah Dessen
  3. The Color Purple by Alice Walker
  4. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
  5. After You by Jojo Moyes
  6. Still Me by Jojo Moyes
  7. This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

… as well as a few more that will be coming down the pipeline in May!

Also, I have two book tags to catch up on that have been waiting in the wing for a while now. Ready?

The first is from @SinkintotheInk on Instagram, the Bookish Musical Genre Tag.

Classical (favorite book):

I don’t do favorites, haha. I have way too many that are dear to my heart.

Pop (overhyped book):

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. I saw it a lot on #bookstagram, but I didn’t think it was as good as the hype made it out to be. The cover is gorgeous, but that’s about it.

Rock (underrated book you love):

I don’t really think it’s underrated, but it’s not as popular among peers in my age group. The Rolling Stone Interviews is soooo beloved in my house. It’s a gem in my collection of music-related books, and I think more young fans of rock and classic rock should read it!

Heavy Metal (brutal book):

She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb. Lamb basically uses the reader’s heart as a punching bag. Related image

EDM (a fast paced book):

I blew through Divergent. There’s so much action!

R&B (a slow but lovable book):

Every Last Cuckoo. It’s slow to start, but picks up towards the end, and the characters are so endearing.

Disco (book with a flashy cover):

The Sun Is Also a Star. I have no idea what this book is about, but that cover is so pretty!

Reggae (summer read):

Stiltsville. It’s a little heavier than summer fluff, but it’s still a good summer read.

Doo-Wop (romantic read)

The Time Traveller’s Wife. It’s such a fantastic love story- not too mushy, but absolutely romantic! Related image

The second is a quick questionnaire from @BooksofThunder on Instagram, the Beauty and the Beast Tag.

Belle (a book you bought for its cover, but was equally beautiful on the inside):

I don’t really buy books for the cover, and the ones that I have weren’t that great, haha.

Beast (a book that pleasantly surprised you):

Spoonbenders! I didn’t think I would like it when I started reading, but by the end I was hooked!Image result for Spoonbenders

Gaston (a book that everyone loves but you don’t):

I won’t say that I dislike them, but I really have no interest in reading the Sarah J Maas books. This isn’t to say that I wouldn’t read them, but I’m just not a huge fantasy fan.

Something There (a book series that picked up at the end):

I think the Twilight series got more interesting the farther in the series you go.

Be Our Guest (a book character you’d want over for dinner):

I think it would be immensely fun if I could have dinner with the Weasley twins!

Well that’s it for this month!

I have planned a bunch of e-book and audiobooks for the month of May. I love my library’s app system, but because I will be on the go during May, I decided now was a great time to up my app game! I’ve downloaded Audible, Hoopla, Overdrive and Kindle to play around with, so I hope you guys are excited for the upcoming month as much as I am!!
