Monthly List: May 2018


Can't believe it's almost summer. May is one of my favorite months in the year mostly because of nice weather, barbecue season and cherries! I love me some cherries. It's such an underrated fruit. 

Now let's look at new releases I plan to read/see in the month of May. 

Books





From Twinkle with Love by Sandhya Menon | May 22nd
I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman | May 3rd
Legendary by Stephanie Garber | May 29th
Lifelik3 by Jay Kristoff | May 29th
Listen to Your Heart by Kasie West | May 29th
War Storm by Victoria Aveyard | May 15th

I most definitely plan to read the new Alice Oseman book, as well as Lifelik3 and the conclusion to the Red Queen series, War Storm. I'll check those others out if I find the time. 

Movies



Solo: A Star Wars Story | May 25th
Deadpool 2 | May 18th

Monthly List: April 2018

I don't know about you but for me, March flew by so fast. I've been reading more in March. There were days when I would be finishing up one book a day. I've read 54 books out of 100 for this year's Goodreads challenge. The much neglected graphic novels also got some time. Seems like a win.

Now let's take a look at April new releases I plan to read.


I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman | April 1st
Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli | April 24th
Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett | April 3rd

Gayle Forman is one of the authors whose work I automatically read. I Have Lost My Way was suppose to come out in March but it was pushed to April for some reason. No worries, I will read it as soon as I can get my greedy hands on it. 
Becky is also on my auto-read list. I love her upbeat novels with interesting characters. 
Jenn Bennett is also on my auto-read list since Alex, Approximately. That book was bursting with cuteness and it seems her newest novel is getting a lot of great reviews so my expectations are high. You better not disappoint, Jenn!  


A Quiet Place | April 6th
Avengers: Infinity War | April 27

Yes! A Quiet Place is finally coming out! I'm so excited about this movie. Apparently, some critic spoiled the whole film before it was even released. What a bad move. Who's going to invite you to their premiere if you're not doing your job the way you're suppose to?! 
Avengers! Watching this for Cap's beard. :)

Monthly List: March 2018

It seems March is blessing us with so many exciting new releases. The one I'm looking forward the most is Restore Me. I live for Warnette. Can't freaking wait!!! Just a couple of days left! 

February flew by so fast if you ask me. During it I started my very first bullet journal and I even started watching a Turkish soap which became a huge part of my daily daydreaming, read obsessing. I haven't been this invested into something since Reylo. 



Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi | March 6th
High Voltage by Karen Marie Moning | March 6th
I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman | March 27th
In Search of Us by Ava Dellaria | March 6th
Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff | March 13th
Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi | March 6th

I'm going to need some help getting through all those book after March 6th releases drop. I can't possibly read them all till the end of the month. Maybe I could do it, if I challenge myself. 



 




March 2nd | Red Sparrow
March 6th | A Wrinkle in Time, The Strangers, Thoroughbreads
March 16th | Tomb Raider, Love Simon 
March 23rd| Pacific Rim 
March 30th | Ready Player One

Top Ten Tuesday #30


I haven't participated in this meme since 2014! :O It's good to be back! I probably won't post every week.

This week's topic is Books that have been on my TBR the longest and I still haven't read. Most of my picks are embarrassing cause I'm really bad at reading books with a lot of pages.


1. Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman - I have the boxed set. Since 2012, I think. So embarrassing. 
2. The Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson - The case of huge book syndrome. I have the first 5 books and they are collecting books on my bookshelf. Has anyone read it?
3. The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan - Got this as a early b-day present from mom a couple of years ago and I've been avoiding it cause I don't want to be disappointed. All of my friends seem to adore this book.
4. The Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent - I kind of want to read past book 1 because of Tod. He's a cutie.
5. Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick - Ehhh... This series. This came during the Twilight craze so the romance is super unhealthy.
6. Going Bovine by Libba Bray - Dust collector. I love Libba but her books are loooong.
7. Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta - It's a known fact Marchetta is amazing and allegedly, so is this trilogy. Will read it before I die. For now they're dust collectors.
8. Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor - I'm probably the only one who hasn't finished this trilogy. I wasn't a fan of the first book. :/ It was meh for me.
9. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray - Libba, Libba, Libba. I want to read this but the size is turning me off.
10. A Little Wanting Song by Cath Crowley - My friends love this book and it's been years since they read it. What am I waiting for? I dunno.
