A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Goodbye May!

Parting is such sweet sorrow!

I have to say, May did some good things for me. I feel like I read a lot even though I was watching my niece and nephew, a friend came over and stayed for a full week, and I still am ahead by nearly a month! Not quite as far ahead as I would like but it won’t take me long to catch back up. AND I saw Maleficent, read The Fault in Our Stars, and finally was able to enjoy the weather (when it wasn’t raining). I also finished my Film class which was AMAZING and really got me thinking about my book reviews and the way we critique things. Overall it has been one awesome month!

I’m really looking forward to seeing The Fault in Our Stars this upcoming weekend. And I’ve also been couponing (it’s crazy but fabulous) so I might make a few posts about that as well. I think I’m getting addicted!

What are you looking forward to this month?

May

FAV book of the month:

These three all threw me! I guess I was expecting something so different and what I got made me think for days after reading. The Fault in Our Stars was definitely the best book of the month but The Medea Complex and The Fever had me asking questions throughout the reads and trying to figure out what was going on while pulling my hair out because I could not! All three are highly recommended but if you haven’t read The Fault in Our Stars I would definitely read prior to seeing the movie. It comes out this Friday, June 6th!

 FAV movie of the month:

Absolutely amazing. I went in thinking that I may not enjoy it due to some reviews I had read but I loved every single minute. The plot was quite interesting and I just loved the characters. What happened at the end of the original story is not what happens in this one!
