Monthly Recap and Book of the Month

May has come and gone. I’ve been yo-yoing between voracious reading and a book slump, where everything I read is meh, which makes it hard to write reviews.

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas – 5 Stars

What I’m Watching

bachelorette

It’s time!!!! I am a HUGE fan of The Bachelorette and proud member of #Bachelornation. My Monday nights consist of The Bachelorette, wine and yoga pants.

sneaky pete 1

I’ve also been watching the Amazon Original series Sneaky Pete. It’s wildly entertaining starring David Shore and Bryan Cranston. It’s great for fans of Breaking Bad.

What I’m writing

I’m almost done with my current round of edits on my first work in progress. These last few chapters have been a huge hurdle because something isn’t right and I can’t figure out what it is. I just need to buckle down and figure it out.

August was a great month for reading, not so much for blogging.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

This book is dark, but good. It’s already haunting me when I’m forced to set it down to participate in reality.

I really like Kasie West and I received it with my monthly Uppercase Box.

What I’m Watching

Harry-potter-films

I’m going to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios in Orlando for the FIRST TIME over labor day weekend. In preparation, I’m binge-watching the entire movie series. It’s amazing how much I’ve forgotten from the movies. I can’t imagine how much I’ve forgotten from the actual HP book series. Someday I’ll reread them, but not today.

What I’m Writing

pusheen-writing-book-animated-gif

I’m prepping for NaNoWriMo in November. This time I’m going to plot my novel, not write by the seat of my pants. Hopefully, this will spare me unnecessary edits in the future.
