April 2017 Wrap-Up

April is the last full month of the semester, so of course that’s been the stressful. The good news is that I’ve turned in all my assignments for one class! Just two more to go. AND a couple of really exciting things happened in April!

  1. I got to visit a friend one Friday. She lives a couple of hours away, so it’s not a big trip but it’s still far enough we sometimes have trouble coordinating(we’re both grad students). It was a really fun Friday of browsing bookstores, eating delicious food, and hanging out with her cats.
  2. I also got to see Becky Albertalli, Sara Zarr, and Katie Cutogno at one of their Texas tour stops, and that was wonderful. I’d only read Becky Alberalli’s books, but Sara Zarr and Katie Cutogno did an excellent job of talking about their books too, and I really want to read both of them now.

Watched

Well I finished the One Day at a Time reboot on Netflix, which was wonderful! I laughed & cried, and got used to the laugh track eventually. Such a wonderfully diverse show, and I highly recommend it.

Then, because I wanted something lighthearted, I started watching The Great British Bake-Off on Netflix, and y’all, I’m obsessed. I watched four episodes in one day, but I don’t understand WHY I love it so much. By all accounts it should be boring, but it’s just not. It’s very comforting and relaxing. I’ve watched the first season available on Netflix.

Listened

Here’s my April playlist!

bloghighlights

The blog’s been kind of slow (man, THIS SEMESTER. I am so glad it’s almost over!), but I did review The Upside of Unrequited.

favbook

I ended up really, really loving Tash Hearts Tolstoy. I’ll talk more about it in my review, of course, but I loved the main character & her friends and the romance.
