May Wrap Up Post

Well it's been quite a month. I was sick. Spanish was hard. I fell behind on blogging. I listened to music and read a few books. I liked a lot of quote and did a bit of artsy stuff. I pinned on Pinterest. I wished for summer to get here already. I drank coffee and planted plants. ALSO I DISCOVERED THAT CHRISTOPHER POINDEXTER IS A REAL PERSON!!  Let's just get to the wrap up, yes?

Music this Month

Music has a way of keeping me sane, or as sane as I can get. Here are some of my favorite (or really most played) music from this month.

Empire: Shakira
Gentleman: Theory of a Deadman
Long Time Traveller: The Wailin' Jennys
Better Than Me: Hinder
Out Through the Curtain: The Hush Sound
Duluth: Mason Jennings
Last Love Song: ZZ Ward

Books I read
~Click on cover to see Goodreads 

This book (above) was EPIC! I'm still having trouble deciding if its a 4.5 or 5 star book. AND THAT COVER. And the guys. And the action. . . Y'all have to read this one!

Forever sent me this one in exchange for a review, and let me tell you, I was not disappointed! This book is just *UGH* I didn't connect to it as much as I had hoped but it was still worth the read!

These two authors are SO FREAKING TALENTED! Can I just have all their books? Pretty please?!

Oh god. This book was so star-crossed (hehe) and the writing was SO LYRICAL! Loved it so much. Luna Lacour is an author to watch out for. See my interview with her here.

Books I added to my to-read list

Honestly, that cover, the font it what drew me in. What can I say? I'm a typography nerd. 

This book sounds SO UNIQUE! The main character has OCD and then something (what?) sets it off and makes it worse and the guy . . . Okay, I just have to read this one. Click the cover to see the full summary. 

She witnesses a murder. And is now on the run. Uhmm, I think HELLZTOTHEYUP!

Honorable Mentions. . .

So how was your May? NEXT WEEK IS FINALS *runs away to Antarctica*


  1. OOh nice haul! I hesitated against Kiss of Deception at first, but the more I see it, the more I want to just read it anyway! Why not! I already have wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too much to read, what's another book going to hurt? Look forward to your review!

    Lovely artwork too! I totally can't draw to save my life! It's just more like crummy doodles! Oh well!

    Hope you enjoy your new reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. Thanks :3 Kiss was SO GOOD! You should really read it. Too much to read?! NEVERRRRR!!
      And thanks. I like my art xD
      Happy reading

  2. Hey Jackie! Hope you're feeling much better now :) Kiss of Deception looks really good. I enjoyed Facade too but I agree it wasn't as good as Charade. Masquerade is much better. Your artwork is amazing!

    1. Hey Janhvi :D I am feeling better, thanks! And Kiss, as you'll see in my ramble was SO GOOD! And thanks :3
      Happy reading

  3. Looks like you read some great books this month. I haven't seen many reviews for the Kiss of Deception, but the ones I have seen all rave about how amazing that book was. Even without the beautiful cover that one would be on the top of my TBR.
    Happy June Reading :D

    1. I did indeed! And all the reviews rave because THIS BOOK IS WORTH RAVING ABOUT!!! And the cover is gorgeous, isn't it?
      Happy reading
