MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!
Books I Read
A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn
Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch
Anne’s House of Dreams by L.M. Montgomery
Glamour in Glass by Mary Robinette Kowal
Only one of these is YA! I’m trying to broaden my horizons a bit. I enjoyed all these reads but Anne’s House of Dreams was my favorite (which was such a relief after Anne of Windy Poplars was a small let-down).
Movie of the Month
Beauty and the Beast! It was lovely! As much as I loved Emma Watson and the guy who played the Beast though, I kind of think Luke Evans as Gaston stole the show! He was spot-on.
My husband and I are also working our way through a Star Wars movies rewatch; only episodes VI and VII to go now!
#Bookstagram Images of the Month
I needed some serious time away from the project I have spent years on, so this month I dabbled on a new story idea that I am pretty sure now is going to be my next WIP, a contemporary about two teens competing for first chair sax. I completed my goal of 10,000 words, though they weren’t all exactly in order. Oops. Anyhow, I’m really loving it and hope I get to share it one day!
Looking Forward to in May
My husband and I will be celebrating 8 years of marriage and 13 years together on the 16th! Sometimes it seems so crazy it’s been that long, but sometimes it feels like it’s been longer (in a good way)! Sadly, we don’t get to go on a vacation this month around our anniversary like we usually do because I got sick so much this winter and used up my PTO, sigh… But I trust it’ll be a good month regardless. We have a local jazz festival I am looking forward to plus a few things lined up to do with friends.
Potential May TBR
The Secret of a Heart Note by Stacey Lee
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (reread) by J.K. Rowling
These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas
Paper Wishes by Lois Sephban
I also already finished one book after reading half of it on April 30 and finishing it the first day of May, but I’ll mention that in my recap next month. 🙂
How was your April? What are you looking forward to in May?
