May’s Moments of the Month: June // Excessive Reading and Writing (aka I Nearly Died But Stayed Alive)

June was a pretty great month.

At least, what I experienced of it.

Yes, I’m still somewhere in Canada hiking through treacherous mountains full of things called nature and bugs. (I have nothing against nature, but BUGS. #ew)

But I will attempt to recap what happened BEFORE I left you all to fend off the dark monsters. Of my absence.

And I probably read some more books??? But hello. I can’t read the future. Or can I.

*Also did anyone get the Hamilton reference in the title. #onfire And FYI I have some “Saturday updates” in this post, meaning today I went through and corrected things.


mmm reading

I have read 9 books so far, but I probably read at least two books by the time this is posted. (Saturday update: Hahaha NO I DID NOT READ TWO MORE BOOKS.)

I’m using the same pic that I used for my last MMM because I’m #lazy like that. (Even though I read some other books. And didn’t read Because You’ll Never Meet Me. Whoops.)

  • The Names They Gave Us Emery Lord // LOVED the characters, couldn’t connect to Lucy??? ★★★★☆
  • The Weight of Feathers Anna-Marie McLemore // Something about the romance was off, but still beautiful. ★★★★☆
  • Geekerella Ashley Poston // SO CUTE AND FLUFFY AND I ENJOYED IT SO MUCH. ★★★★☆ [4.5 stars]
  • History is All You Left Me Adam Silvera // I wanted to like this SO BAD—and I did, just not enough. ★★★☆☆
  • Strange the Dreamer Laini Taylor // The characters are SO SMOL and this book is gorgeous but the insta-love and writing style… *cries* ★★★★☆ [4.5 stars]
  • The Female of the Species Mindy McGinnis // I spoiled the ending for myself but STILL I AM IN SHOCK AND NO THIS IS NOT FAIR. WHY. ★★★★★
  • This Savage Song Victoria Schwab // THIS WAS BEAUTIFUL AND I NEED SEQUEL NOW. ★★★★★
  • Wink Poppy Midnight April Genevieve Tucholke // A good book with GREAT twists, but much confusion??? ★★★☆☆
  • Allegedly Tiffany D. Jackson // (Saturday update: So it wasn’t as good as I expected? But it still has beautiful messages, even though I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NOW??? ★★★★☆)

library haul?

I legit have a library haul, but no picture of it. CRY WITH ME.

[the most amazing bookish pic ever and you know it]

  • Allegedly Tiffany D. Jackson // Wasn’t as great as I expected, but still good.
  • Nevernight Jay Kristoff // #AussieAuthor I’M SO EXCITED TO READ THIS. I’ve read part of it and LOVE the formatting gaghahgah.
  • The Love That Split The World Emily Henry // I am slowly falling in love with the magical realism genre and I’m so excited to read this!
  • The Diviners Libba Bray // Steampunk? Yes please. Also this was recommended to me so yes I will read it.

favorite book of the month?

I read TWO 3-star reads this month??? I’m getting more critical. (They probably should’ve been two stars tbh.) BUT DEFINITELY THE FEMALE OF THE SPECIES. Like holy cow please hold me while I die. (Even though This Savage Song was super good as well.)

favorite author of the month?

Mindy McGinnis??? Or Victoria Schwab??? One of them???

tbrs accumulated

  • When They Collided
  • Wild Beauty (to be released)
  • More Happy Than Not
  • other books by Mindy McGinnis
  • Our Dark Duet
  • just go look at my Goodreads shelf tbh

mmm blogging

  • THIS MONTH (JULY) IS MY SIX-MONTH BLOGIVERSARY MONTH!!! Which doesn’t count for a memorable blogging moment in June…
  • I have a total of 630 followers which is IN. SANE.
  • 12 posts
  • 4,386 views
  • 951 likes
  • 1,646 comments
  • 154 WordPress followers + 3 email followers – 1 email follower (tbf all three email followers were my friend’s three email accounts after I told her I was close to 600 ❤ )
  • I think my stats went down because I had a lot of collabs/guest posts/blog tours. While I LOVE supporting my fellow bloggers, I also love having my own original content…
  • BUT. I’m still happy with my stats. As I should be. #AbnormallyFastGrowingBlog

top posts of the month?

fantasy vs contemporary

writerly update 7

mmm may

Honestly I am SO PLEASED that you guys actually like my writing updates.

(Saturday update: Let me also say that my Diversity in Books discussion was SUPER SUPER popular. As in super.)

favorite post of the month?

non-reader

I had a lot of fun coming up with all these problems (although some of them were SO HARD to come up with). If this post was something I stumbled across on another post, I would’ve commented, “#RELATABLE.” Because it is. And I’m proud of that fact.

other awesome posts?

me taking over the blogosphere?

  • NOTHING!!! *applauds* But I promise there will be some things here in the next month.

mmm writing

  • I somewhat finished brainstorming for my magic story??? Somewhat is better than nowhat though.
  • But I also figured out that I’m outlining my magic story for Camp… but not writing the actual novel. I’M SORRY. I keep giving up on my projects but I SWEAR. MY PLOT BUNNIES ARE BETTER THAN THIS ONE.
  • And I also sent off IMS to a writing contest! *crosses fingers*
  • Let’s also note that the contest I’m entering to is ALSO hosting an essay contest for “Why We Need Diverse Books” and I’m SO. ENTERING.
  • I was also chosen to read my writing at a big reading as a representative for my camp class. 1) I DON’T WANT TO SHARE, and 2) there’s a possibility that the reading falls on the same date as a BOOK FEST WITH MARIE LU AND #NO.
  • I convinced my friend Jackie to start writing!!! And obviously this is important to mention because I feel VERY ACCOMPLISHED when I do this. Also Jackie is simply AMAZING. ❤ Go follow her blog or I will throw rotten mangoes at you.
  • (Last month I inspired Julianna to start a novel… I think she’s better at writing than I am. LUV YA, J8 MY M8.)

mmm life

  • Listening to my mom try to say “Porta-Potty” is the best thing ever. (Her native language is Thai.)
  • I also sliced some apples this month with a knife all by myself??? At first I enjoyed it. Then I got scared. And then I giggled.
  • I had a workout that left me lightheaded, and then I also had dance. In which I actually was GOOD at the combo.
  • Apparently I was “berry berry missed” by little children. THEIR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND RECOGNIZES THAT I AM THE MANGO QUEEN.
  • In writing camp, we were prompted to make a “stage name” and I chose May. 😉
  • I’M CURRENTLY IN CANADA AND PROBABLY DYING FROM NATURE.
  • Near the end of the month I listened to Hamilton more often and I’m re-obsessed.

mmm goals last

READING

  • read at least eleven books this month

    I read 9 books before vacation and THOUGHT I could read two more… but I underestimated how tired you can get after hiking. And fending off The Bugs™.

  • at least two of those books have to be from the TBR ✓✓✓

    Let’s just say that more than half of the books I read were on my TBR.

  • at least two have to be fantasy

    I READ STRANGE THE DREAMER AND ALSO THIS SAVAGE SONG SO HA.

WRITING

  • brainstorm EVERYTHING for “magic” story

    Um… well I still haven’t come up with a title. *smacks brain* I’m also taking character questionnaires with me on vacay/the plane. And I’m still in the process of worldbuilding. But not EVERYTHING can be planned, right???

  • finish editing IMS for writing contest!

    I DID. I mean they weren’t GREAT edits, but they suffice.

  • finalize ideas for my blog writing project

    YAS YAS I DID. THE POST IS READY AND SO IS THE FORM AND SO IS THE EMAIL (though I might need to trim it down… it’s like 1K words #sorrynotsorry).

BLOGGING

  • SPEND LESS TIME IN THE BLOGOSPHERE

    Kind of??? I mean I guess I should correct this to “computer” because I will go on WordPress on my phone. It’s hopeless. yOu HaVe CoRrUpTeD mE.

  • reach 600 followers???

    I DID I DID I DID AND IT MAKES ME SOOOOO HAPPY!!!

  • decide on new theme!

    I DECIDED ON A NEW THEME… but I’m not using it. I feel like it makes my blog have a “darker” atmosphere and my blog is LIGHT AND FUN AND FLUFFY. I think.

LIFE

  • get more sleep and drink more water

    IT’S SUMMER AND SOMEHOW I’M NOT GETTING NINE HOURS OF SLEEP??? Nor enough water. Help me.

  • straighten back MORE MORE MORE

    *cries* NOOOOOOOOOOO.

  • spend more time with the fam!

    I did! And I will! My sis, dad, and I had some epic Chinese Checkers battles. Yes. I’m a nerd. And proud.

mmm goals this

READING

  • read at least nine books this month

    I want to read MORE but I have Camp NaNo going on and that’s my number one priority. #IStillLoveYou

  • get into arcs and netgalley maybe???

    I REALLY REALLY WANT TO GET SOME ARCS GUYS!!! Like, I want physical copies. Mostly because my phone sucks and has no storage to download the Aldiko Reader app. BUT I’LL TAKE WHATEVER FREE BOOKS I GET.

  • take pictures of my beautiful rainbow shelf

    I ACTUALLY REARRANGED MY SHELF TO LOOK PRETTY AND NOW IT’S AESTHETIC??? Now I just stare at it with loving eyes. Except The Sword of Summer ruins EVERYTHING by being purple AND orange. Like no???

WRITING

  • outline magic story!!!

    This is my task for Camp NaNo (WHICH STARTS TODAY ASDFGHJKL). I’m aiming for 10K words. I will fail.

  • come up with an ACTUAL TITLE

    Not that this is necessary or anything… Mostly I won’t have to say “I outlined magic story for Camp”. But maybe this isn’t necessary because I’M NOT WRITING IT???

  • not procrastinate

    Because obviously I will. Wait that made no sense May.

BLOGGING

  • reach 800 700 750 followers

    As you can see I had a bit of trouble deciding which number to shoot for. BUT I think I have some interesting content coming up soon (!!!), so that’ll (hopefully) generate more traffic!

  • fix design stuff

    I have a new header… but it’s blurry for some reason??? I also need to fix the Goodreads graphic in the footer. And while I’m at it, let’s just rewrite my whole About page.

  • launch my writing project!!!

    Otherwise known as get the sign-up post up. And also hope that this isn’t a huge flop. I’M SO EXCITED THO ASDFGHJKL.

LIFE

  • get more sleep and drink more water

    I’m still #smushing these together.

  • straighten back MORE MORE MORE

    I REALLY DON’T WANT TO HAVE A HUNCHED BACK. *wails*

  • spend less time on the computer!

    Which… probably won’t happen because blogging and writing is on the computer, but I WILL TRY.

bulletI’m in Canada right now!!! Until the 5th of July. Which means I’ll miss Fourth of July fireworks which is NOT FAIR. But hopefully I haven’t died yet and will come back in one shape. Because the hiking and horrid flies mosquitos are real.

bulletMy six-month blogiversary is coming up! I’m planning on having a giveaway. But like… a lowkey giveaway. One that doesn’t involve money because I’M SORRY BUT I’M #BROKE. Maybe for my one-year blogiversary???

bulletI’m introducing my blog writing project! I am SO SO EXCITED. You don’t even know how excited I am. HONESTLY. I really hope that this doesn’t fail, though, because that would be SAD. But I believe in you. Because you should like anything the Mango Queen does.


ALSO. SHOUT-OUT TIME.

My irl friend Tessa started her very own blog!!! (This is the same one that followed me with all three of her email accounts THE SMOL CHILD.) I guess she was just that inspired by me…

Image result for flips hair gif

But be sure to check it out (and follow if you can)! She’s going on vacation soon so she won’t be able to post as much… but still. ❤


shall we chat

how was your month of june? any plans for the summer? what books did you read in june? are you doing camp nano? goals for july? and will you be loyal to the mango queen and her friends by checking out tessa’s blog?

P.S. HAPPY CANADA DAY!!! I’m hoping to see some fireworks. To make up for not seeing the Fourth of July fireworks.

P.P.S. GIVE ME ALL THE TIPS FOR GETTING ARCS PLEASE.

P.P.P.S. I swear I am reading all of your posts… BUT THE WIFI IS SOOOO SLOW. It takes forever to load the page.

  1. Ah, thanks so much for linking to two of my posts (and for telling everyone to go follow me), WHICH THEY SHOULD (lol, no; just kidding). And congratulations on 600 followers! I’m close to that number, and I realized that’s SO MANY PEOPLE; I didn’t even stop to think about it! And yeah for celebrating that 6-month blogiversary! 😀

  2. Yay! Sounds like June was a pretty good month for you. I can’t wait for your writing project! Can you at least tell me what it’s called? Pretty please?
    Aww, Tessa sounds like such a sweetie. I’ll check out her blog with much enthusiasm knowing she followed you three times. How could you possibly be more dedicated?

  3. Congratulations, May! 600 + followers is amazing. 🙂 And also why are you having so many adventures when I have just escaped from 27 exams and am here, in a boring little town in England, trying to figure out what I will eat after this cereal bar and just generally leading a sad life. *sobs* But ANYWAY, well done x 100 for everything! xx

  5. MAY DO YOU HAVE BLOGGING MIRACLE GRO OR SOMETHING????

    also would you be interested in, say, me interviewing you on my blog at some point? I’ve decided to do the occasionally blogger/etsy shop owner spotlight post and you’re the second person I’ve asked so 0.o

    ALSO ARC TIPS: basically google all the ARC sites and sign up, tbh. and get a Klout account (which requires twitter but you don’t have to tweet) Klout measures your online presence and I bet yours is huge. I 100% RECOMMEND BLOGGINGFORBOOKS, OF COURSE. they send out some oldish books too so… :p

    AND A WRITING PROJECT WHA?? *awaits eagerly*

    • IDK I HONESTLY DON’T KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENED???

      And AGH, I’d be so HONORED to be interviewed by the Dragon Queen! Just let me finish beta-ing your story. XD (Also the reason I haven’t been commenting on your posts is because I’m logged into Google on my phone with my personal account… and I’d comment with that name too. SORRY! ❤)

      OOH OKAY. And dude my parents are so protective they wouldn’t even let me get an inactive Twitter account. XD

    You got through some amazing books this month, and oh you have to let me know what you think of The Love That Split the World when you get around to it. Emily Henry is one of my favourite magical realism authors and I love her books so I really hope you do as well. 🙂
    Congratulations on reaching 600 followers, I’m sure you’ll be able to read 750 during July as well, maybe even more! 😀 Also congrats on nearing your six month blogiversary too. Do you have anything special planned for it to celebrate?

  11. Bugs are literally the worst. Stay strong.
    You read a lot of books this month that I’ve had my eyes on! It’s a pretty good month when the lowest rating is 3 stars. 😉

    Thanks for putting your stats up for us to see, and congrats on the 600 followers? Question, though: Do you not use bloglovin’? It’s how I follow most of my blogs, but I’ve noticed recently that a lot of bloggers don’t seem to be using it as often. (I can still follow you on there even if you don’t have a registered account, though.)

  18. I read Love Does by Bob Groff and Think by John Piper, as well as finishing That Distant Land by Wendel Berry and starting Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (second-time ’round 😉 ) and The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien. Eek – too many books at once.

    My goal for July is to read at least five books. We’ll see how that goes. 😀

  19. may, if i can give you any advice, DON’T FORGET TO STRAIGHTEN YOUR BACK. as someone who has a lot of back issues, i wish i could’ve told myself a few years ago to be more careful about it. this could’ve avoided me several nights of intense back pain!
    i really hope to read this savage song and history is all you left me as soon as possible. these books have been on my tbr since the release, but i’m sadly too broke to afford them at the moment. hehehe. (watch me laugh as i hide my tears).
    i really hope you return alive from your canada trip and i hope you have a fantastic month of july! 🙂

      TSS was sooooo good! The writing style was a bit hard to get into at first, for me. And I’m so sad I didn’t like History! I’m hoping I like Silvera’s other books. I GOT THEM BOTH FROM THE LIBRARY SO MAYBE YOU COULD DO THAT??? I’m not joking when I say I am broke too. 😂😭 Have a wonderful July as well, Lais!

I love Laini Taylor’s writing but insta love #nothanks 😰 BUT I WANT TO LOVE THE BOOK. So fingers crossed? Anyway. I shall now screeeeeech because you were… disappointed by History is All You Left Me?

Geekerella was ADORABLY cute. 😍 Yeah the insta-love is real… I'm so sad they had it because I would've given it five stars if they didn't! (As you can tell I pretty much hate insta-love. 😂) But I know some people who were able to overlook that so maybe you will too??? And I'm so sad I didn't like History as well! But I do like his writing style so we'll see???

  23. WELL someone had a productive month for also being on vacation! 9 books is lovely, I only read 4 this month. My TBR is weeping in the corner.
    Congrats on 600 followers! That’s so wonderful, you should be proud! Also, I was thinking about writing something for Camp NaNo and then I thought oh, I’ll just outline it, and now, i’M JUST DOING NOTHING SO it’s okay. You’re still working towards the thing, and that’s the most important of things! I betcha I passed you crossing the border because I was coming home from Canada land at a very close time to you 😉

    • IT’S OKAY KRIS we will defeat the TBR some day. Hopefully. THANK YOU! Nooooooo Kriiiiiiiis you have to wriiiiiiiite. EVEN JUST A WORD A DAY IS OKAY!!! And that would’ve been sad if we’d seen each other but didn’t recognize each other. (Dude my writer brain is screaming at me for the repeated use of “each other”.)

  24. Hi May,
    So sorry to bother you, but can you confirm that you’d like to be a part of my blogging project? I am just trying to get a list of names together. You don’t need to email me if you’re busy, you can just let me know now. I have your email address anyway so I can send you the instructions for the next step.

    Thanks! Again, apologies!
