Other things:

>>In the beginning of June I got a new tablet! It’s a Samsung Tab 4. I had a giftcard from sending my Nexus back. I really like it! I use it mainly to read ebooks on Overdrive and Kindle. I can use Google Books, Nook, and other things (I’m pretty sure Kobo has an app) too. Now it’s easier for me to get things from Netgalley (though I don’t do a lot of that) because if the choice is PDF vs Kindle, I can choose Kindle and read on my tablet!

>>Game of Thrones ended! Waiting a whole year sucks. I wish they had longer seasons. I wish D&D weren’t devoid of human emotions and didn’t thrive on the pain of fans. I read about Michelle Fairley confirming that [spoiler redacted] would not be happening in the show, at all. Lame.

>>I watched all of The 100 and it is all CW and it has its problems, but I actually like it.

General Plans for July: Hopefully finding an apartment and getting settled! Trying to defeat my nemesis, 2048. Maybe watching Brooklyn 99 again?

How was your June? What was your favorite book from June? Do you have anything awesome on your July TBR? Any awesome plans for July? Anything else to share?

April Recap

April was really crazy for me but I actually made a lot more time for reading than I expected I would!

and then there were 4 Iris Johansen books, 2 I read all of out of morbid curiosity and two I did not finish. She writes historical and likes writing about young girls and not a lot of consent which turns into love. Yikes.  I started two or three other romances and didn’t finish them but not because of major issues,  I just had other books to read and things to do!

Posts this month not counting the reviews linked to above:

And I’m still way way behind on commenting on blogs and replying to comments on my blog. I’m trying to work on that! But here are just a few more LGBT related posts I missed on my other post:

 

If I’ve missed a post of yours I should check out, let me know! How was your month? Did you read a lot?

goodbye March, hello April [recap]

This year has been really insane for me and it seems to be moving fast and slow at the same time! In March I finished my short class which relieved a lot of stress! Spring Break happened, but I did very little and less reading than I expected. Instead, I caught up on a lot of TV!

But here’s what I did read in March:

I’m in the middle of rereading The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley and a weird romance and I might have both finished by the end of the day.

I only posted 3 times in March!

But I have plans for April that will hopefully make me do better! And I’m hoping I can definitely carve out more time to comment on posts!

Also up in April:

Fighting Dreamer
“LGBT Month is hosted by Laura @ Laura Plus Books and Cayce @ Fighting Dreamer.  It runs throughout the month of April and it’s here to celebrate LGBT+ readers, LGBT+ authors and of course LGBT+ books.”
I’m signing up for LGBT Month! I’ve been reluctant to be a part of any events this year because my life is really hectic at the moment, but LGBT Month is they low pressure type of event I need! At this moment, I’m not sure what I’ll be doing for LGBT Month, but I’ve been wanting to read Openly Straight and Two Boys Kissing, so maybe I will try to check them out! I’m excited to see what everyone else does for LGBT month!If you’ve been meaning to read some more LGBT books and want to celebrate LGBT reads, you should join this low maintenance and fun event, too! Check out the sign up post! 

What about you? Did you post a recap this month? Have I missed an awesome post of yours lately? Are you signing up for LGBT month, too? Or do you have something exciting you want to tell someone, anyone? Let me know in the comments!

 

 

Hello March, Goodbye February

Books read in February:

  1. All the Truth That’s in Me by Julie Berry  (began in January but finished in Feb)
  2. Arranged by Catherine McKenzie (I read this one because of this review by Jen at Pop! Goes the Reader)
  3. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge – If I get around to it, I might review this one, I was kind of disappointed with it.
  4. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart – E. Lockhart is a hero
  5. The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale – I was a little bored by this one.
  6. Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis – not as intense as I expected
  7. Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi – I’m not sure how I feel about this series ender
  8. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes – Kind of crazy.

Frankie Landau-Banks was my favorite read this month. I was entertained by some of the others but did not feel intense love for them. I’d say The Goose Girl was probably at the bottom, but I think it might have been a mood thing.
