Monthly Recap! May 2016

Posted June 2, 2016 by Wendy in recap / 3 Comments

recapI absolutely can’t believe it’s June already! Whatttt even. I think it’s because there were a lot of book events at the beginning of May and then it was crazy getting ready for BEA and then BEA itself! Busy, busy, busy but filled with awesome bookish goodness! As a result, the blog was a bit quieter this month but here is what did happen!

May in Review!

Books Read in May: 7


Audiobooks Listened to in May: 2

May16audio(Oh my gosh, the audio for Feast of Crows was soo long!)

Progress so far: 4/12


I read The Fixer series this month! It is SO GOOD, you guys, read it! Although I do desperately hope that there will be a 3rd book! Everyone, go read this series if you haven’t already!

Favorite Things This Month:

It goes without saying — BEA! You can read about my trip in my recaps part one, two and three! I had the absolute best time and I’m just still suffering from friend withdrawals. I miss my people!!

The Fierce Reads tour was here at the beginning of May and I totally braided my hair and gushed to Marie Rutkowski about how much I loved her series and Arin. <3 Then Morgan Matson was also here along with Suzanne Young and Siobvan Vivian! Morgan was so sweet and had a fun polaroid camera to take selfies with that we got to take home with us! Such a fun idea and ALSO she said she loved my eye shadow and I was all omg Morgan Matson loves my eyeshadow! <33

What were you all up to in May? What were your fave reads or fave moments of May? Now that summer is upon us, do you have any summer plans?

  1. YAY for The Raven King – omg that book was perfection ♥ I’m still not over it…I don’t think I’ll EVER be over it. I WILL be doing a series reread, hopefully soon 😀 I’m so happy you had a blast at BEA too Wendy – I loved living vicariously through your updates. I’m hoping I’ll be there next year and hopefully you will be too, I’d love to see you again 🙂 Happy June! xx

  2. wow blogversary and BEA all in one month. A lot of people seem to have May blogversaries, wonder how that ended up happening?

    Also major kudos to you for reading the A Song of Ice and Fire series. If I even think about reading all those book my body curls in on itself. I can definitely image it having a ridiculously long audio.
