May 2016 wrap-up and June TBR!

Wednesday, June 8, 2016

May was a looooooong month for me. April went by in the blink of an eye, but May dragged. I think it's because I had so much going on (traveling, BEA, visiting friends, finals) that I felt like I was wading through mud because I was always wishing it was a day or a week later, especially that first week with finals. BEA and seeing all my friends was super nice, but there's nothing like getting back into the groove of life. Being out of school means WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK, which is a relief since I need the money.
Since May was so busy, I only read two books. The first two weeks of May were crammed with finals and BEA, so I literally had no time to read. Then the last two weeks was a little jam packed because I've started my summer hours at work (summer hours meaning working any day that I can), so I had to adjust to the new, earlier hours. I've turned into a grandma. I'm in bed by 9 and up by 6 almost every day, since I'm one of the few people who actually needs sleep. You know those people that can get by with 5 hours or less of sleep every day? Yeah, I'M JEALOUS. I literally cannot function, and I need to be functioning at my work. 

I finished The Museum of Heartbreak by Meg Leder, which was a cute and lighthearted contemporary that I recommend for anyone needing to get over a reading slump, or just in the mood for something light. I'm a part of the blog tour, and my date is June 6th, so my review will be up then! I also read, and absolutely LOVED, The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout. You can find my review here. This is also a contemporary, but it's darker and grittier, with a sweet romance that'll have you absolutely swooning. 

So, since this post is coming a little late, my original TBR for June had been muuuuuch bigger than this. I had signed up for a lot of blog tours for ARC's, and all the dates seemed to be right at the beginning of June and it was freaking me out a little. But since then, I've DNF'd some of them (since that seems to be a theme this year) or already finished them, so I've only got two books for review and then the rest is for pleasure.

The Dreamer by E.J Mallow
Elementals: The Head of Medusa by Michelle Madow (release day is the 29th)
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
The Witch Hunter and The King Slayer by Virginia Boecker
