May Wrap-Up 2016

In My Life

May is over—and with it, the school year! Today is my last day of school and I am soooo excited for summer. I’ve survived junior year and that is giving me so much joy right now.

Honestly, not much happened this month. I took my AP exams, which went pretty well, and then school calmed down to the point where it feels like summer has kind of already started.

On This Blog

I had eight blog posts this month, which kind of sucks. I was finally starting to get back into the rhythm of blogging near the end of the month, but the beginning of this month was rough. I can’t tell you how glad I am that AP exams are over and that my life can go back to normal.

I only had one Top Ten Tuesday this month: Top Ten Books I Feel Differently About Now That Time Has Passed. One more thing I’m trying to get back into the habit of doing.

In Reading and Reviewing

I read seven (ish) books this month (ish because I started the month by finishing one and ended it by almost finishing another), and reviewed four of them. After AP exams ended, my classes calmed down a ton and I was able to read a lot. YAY!

In Writing

Yeah…you know what didn’t happen this month? Yep, you guessed it—writing. I published one poem (You Came Back) and did no other writing. I’m hoping that summer will be better for this.


How was you May? For people who took AP exams, how did they go? What are your summer plans?

  1. My May was so hectic! I’m spending the summer doing prelims, catching up on reading, writing, and making plans. My parents might come visit me, and maybe I’ll take a weekend trip or two. I’m hoping to take a road trip, maybe out west. Come on over and visit and leave a comment or two, it’s been aqhile since I’ve seen you!

  2. I’m going to start the Raven Cycle this month! What did you think of them? I didn’t see star ratings. Would you recommend them? What did you think of the writing style that’s so famous in these books?

    1. I love the Raven Cycle! I’ve given every book 5/5 stars, I think (in previous reviews). The characters are simply incredible. I would totally recommend them!
      The writing is gorgeous. It’s poetic and fascinating and the kind of writing that makes me want to get better at writing. I know some people have called it wordy or overly complex, but I think it’s great. You have to read it carefully but if you do it will impress you 🙂
