April Wrap Up & May TBR12:30 PM
Hi guys! Can you believe April already passed? We're only 8 months left until 2017! #scary.
I've been having quite a great time lazing around, with nothing to do for a whole month. Well, except for the house chores that I have to work. But it's better than doing nothing! Which is why I managed to read quite a statisfying amount of 6 books this month.
- The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ✰✰✰✰
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stievfater ✰✰✰✰.5
- The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stievfater ✰✰✰✰
- Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover ✰✰
- Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone ✰✰✰✰
- The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness ✰.5
- Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stievfater ✰✰✰✰
I also read the entire series of Vampire Knight (yes all 19 volumes of it) but I didn't update it on Goodreads because it will messed up with the reading challenge counter. Let me just say I love the earlier parts more than the rest. It was so fun and light and it's just too dark and political in the end. But the ending break my heart though!
- All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr // I know it was on my tbr last month, but I just didn't managed to read it.
- Sea of Monster by Rick Riordan // I really need to continue with my PJO re-read.
- Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini // One of those books that has been sitting too long on my shelf collecting dust.
- Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson // Everyone has been raving about this author, so it's time to jump on this train too! Also, a little contemporary wouldn't hurt, right?
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald // Another book that has been on my tbr last month, but I didn't managed to read.

- I'm being really productive this month. I'm back into swimming and morning walks, I'm learning how to drive and I watch lots of TV shows this month. I watched Shadowhunters, season 1 of Empire, and Descendants of the Sun. I initially planned to post a review for them, but Erin already posted her review of Shadowhunters, and it's pretty accurate with mine so I won't post it again. But I'd still do Empire though.
- My sister is binge-reading the PJO series this month, and she's currently on the 4th book! I'm so proud of her, and it kind of motivated me to continue with my PJO re-read.
- I WATCHED CAP 3 GUYS! It was amazing, and I definitely want to watch it again. You can read my review here. I enjoyed it so much, and Bucky really owns my heart that I watched all Captain movies the next day, and repeated those 2 movies daily for 3 days now. I'm such a Seb trash. I really need new movie with him in it though, so if you have any recs, please let me know in the comment<3
