What I hauled?

So much for book buying bans. This month I just couldn’t help myself, I bought 4 books (which is not so bad now that I think about it!) I mean when you see the list of books I acquired you’ll understand why I just had to have them;

  • Yellow Brick War by Danielle Paige – Such a beautiful cover I had to pick it up.
  • A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab – I mean magic and alternate universes, I just had to buy this.
  • A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab
  • The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith – I mean its J. K. Rowling, I had to!

What I watched?

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice: I know not everyone was a fan of this but I totally loved it and you can check all my fangirling thoughts on it here.

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 1: Picking up right were s5 ended this premiere was totally awesome in my opinion, I mean nothing was held back; it was bloody and political and of course it wouldn’t be game of thrones without boooobs (lol). The only thing that would have made this better was if a certain someone didn’t die, how could they do this to me!

Originals Season 2 Episode 1 – 9: Trying to catch up on my Originals, such an awesome show; those poor Mikaelsons just can’t seem to catch a break.

What I listened to?

The Hamilton Musical Soundtrack: I actually held-off listening to this because I thought it wouldn’t be anything I liked but then a friend of mine played me Wait for It and I just had to listen to everything else.

Twenty One Pilots, Blurryface: Such an amazing album, my life’s goal is now to see twenty one pilots live!

 First by Cold War Kids: Such a great song I fell in love with this month.


OK lemme end my post before I get even more off books. I hope you guys had a great month both reading-wise and life-wise (hope that made sense) and I’m super excited to share more bookish love with all you amazing people! Thanks for reading…

May.
