May was a pretty uneventful month for me. I didn’t read as much as I had planned because I spent most of my time this month binge watching stuff of Netflix and Hulu but more on that later. Yeah so that’s all I really have to update y’all on so lets just jump right into the post shall we.
# of books read: 6
# of pages read: 2,129

As always I am behind on my reviews but I will get them posted eventually. If y’all seen my May TBR post you know I had a friend pick the books I was going to read. I had her pick 8 books and out of those 8 books I only read 2 of them so I would say that was a complete fail. I do have 2 of the books she picked on my June TBR so I will still be reading them but more on that in my TBR post coming Friday. Overall though I am happy with the 6 books I did manage to read even though I didn’t stick to my TBR and didn’t read as many books as I would have liked to. While all of these books were pretty good none of them blew me away but if I had to pick a favorite then I would have to go with The Selection.
What I Watched
Ok like I mentioned earlier I binge watched a lot of shows and movies this month so this is going to be a pretty long section so you might want to grab some popcorn and something to drink.
I’m a big fan of the first Tremors movie with Kevin Bacon in it but they have gradually gotten stupider and stupider but I keep watching them for some reason.
Viewer Discretion is Advised
All of the Fifty Shades movies are out and I own all of them as well as the books. I love the books but overall I’m not a huge fan of the movies for a couple reasons one being I don’t think they got the casting right and second they left out so much that I think should have been included.
I finally watched Baywatch. It wasn’t the greatest but it was pretty funny and I found it entertaining. There was a lot of vulgar language and I saw something I was not expecting to see lol.
I watched The Phantom of the Opera for the first time in my high school chorus class and I have loved it ever since. Every once in a while I get the urge to rewatch it.
In May I binge watched seasons 1-3 of The 100. Season 4 is available on Netflix but I forced myself not to watch it because season 5 isn’t available yet and I knew I would want to keep watching so I am holding off on it.
Aside from all of that I also watched a few other shows that I can’t find trailers for and those were Dancing With The Stars Athletes Edition, Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 & 14, and Bones Season 12. I enjoy all of these shows but Bones is my favorite and unfortunately season 12 was the Series Finale.
What I Listened To
I listened to several new songs in May after not having any new ones in April. The one I have listened to like a thousand times since it came out is Don’t Go Breaking My Heart by the Backstreet Boys. I grew up listening to them and I am an unapologetic fangirl.
- Goodreads – 36/100 books read
- Pages Read – 11,749/24,000 pages read
- Alphabet Soup – 15/26 books read
That’s a wrap on another month. I can’t believe we are already into the 6th month of the year. I am still behind on my Goodreads goal and I have now fallen a little behind on my pages read goal but I am still working on catching up. Have you read any of the books I mentioned? Have we watched or listened to any of the same things? What was May like for you?
