May’s Moments of the Month: March // The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Month (but Love, Simon and Gay Music!)

March was a really tough month.

It had a lot of ups and downs? Most notably was my mental health. It started out great, got worse, and then kind of got to a “meh” position again. But there were also little things scattered throughout it that made it more bearable!!!

(LOVE SIMON LOVE SIMON LOVE SIMON.)

It was also the month that 1) I blogged WAAAAY less (and it was so so relaxing omg) and 2) a lot of things happened. Just like, in general. In life, in reading, and so much more.

mmm reading

So I read 8 books this month!! One was a webcomic, one a novella, and two were rereads!! I’m so good at this reading thing!!!!

I finished a book the morning of April 1st though so…

In better news, this month I actually BOUGHT a book with my own money (actually it was from a gift card so technically not my money but the gift card was given to ME so it’s pretty much mine now!!), received an ARC of one of my most anticipated 2018 releases that wasn’t from a publisher, and also—the most exciting part—GOT A NEW BOOKSHELF!!!

I also read a lot of highly-rated books this month but I have Legitimate Reasons for that but I don’t need to explain myself when I enjoy books, so I won’t. (Aimed towards all my “friends” who mock gasp when I “actually like a book”.)

Always Human  Furyborn (Empirium, #1)  The Mysterious Benedict Society (The Mysterious Benedict Society, #1)  All Out: The No-Longer-Secret Stories of Queer Teens Throughout the Ages

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda (Creekwood, #1)  The Wicker King  The Legend of the Golden Raven: A Novella of The Wicker King  And I Darken (The Conqueror's Saga, #1)

  • Always Human Ari Walkingnorth // EXTREMELY cute f/f webcomic + beautiful art and MUSIC + relationship was so sweet + just love it so much! ★★★★★ [read it here!]
  • Furyborn Claire Legrand // disappointment of the year + too long + very boring + not good bi rep in my opinion + did NOT care about any characters ★★☆☆☆
  • The Mysterious Benedict Society Trenton Lee Stewart // REREAD // literally my childhood + still suck supremely at solving everything tho + characters are amazing and diverse for a 2007 novel!! ★★★★★
  • All Out (anthology) Saundra Mitchell & others //  technically 4 stars (calculated average) + but I really really loved the stories + it means a lot to me + beautiful + queer + so well-written ★★★★★
  • Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda Becky Albertalli // REREAD // reread in anticipation of the movie + forgot how HILARIOUS it was + I love the characters so much + this book means the world to me!! + I LOVE IT AAHHHH ★★★★★
  • The Wicker King K Ancrum // damaged soft boys stole my heart + characters, story, message, and unique formatting are beautiful!!! + just,, such a gorgeous story ★★★★☆ [4.5]
  • The Legend of the Raven K Ancrum // novella set in the world of The Wicker King + disappointed me + thought it would be gayer oops★★★☆☆
  • And I Darken Kiersten White // I thought I would love it + but no + of course not + it was boring + way too historical for me + and it WASN’T GAY ENOUGH ★★★☆☆ [2.5]

book haul?

This month, I bought All Out, one of my most anticipated releases for 2018 (and I definitely do not regret it). I also received The Astonishing Color of After, thanks to Ilsa, Jackie, and Ju trying to win it in a giveaway for me, Ilsa catching the attention of the lovely Lili, who got her friend to send her ARC to me!!

  

(THANK YOU SO MUCH!)

I also!! GOT A NEW BOOKSHELF!!! It’s very pretty and I like it much more than my old one, which was just a hutch above my desk. And before I got the bookshelf, I was having multiple breakdowns each night, but then after I got it, I was completely fine and I was just overall very happy!!!

Here it is in its tall glory:

(Tbh it’s WAY too tall, it’s like 2 feet taller than me. And it’s taller than the door. Which means to get it out of my room, we’ll have to take it apart. Yikes.)

And here’s a (PRETTY!!!) closeup of the specific shelves I’ve filled up:

Obviously, filling up only 2 of the shelves out of 7 is a sign that I NEED MORE BOOKS. (Also Renegades wouldn’t fit so then I just ended up hiding it on the very top shelf because I didn’t want to be reminded of disappointment by leaving it out on display, like I did with Crooked Kingdom and Girl Made of Stars, two of my favorite books!!)

favorite book?

Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, 100%. Mysterious Benedict Society is more of a nostalgic five stars, All Out is technically supposed to be four stars, and again, I barely read webcomics and have no idea how to “correctly” rate them. (This is me justifying why I’m not choosing my other 5-star reads.) And also, this book means so so much to me and I just LOVE IT.

disappointment?

Okay, while Furyborn was a really big disappointment for me, especially with all the good reviews at first PLUS the promise of bi rep, but… And I Darken was an even bigger disappointment??

I mean, I should know better than to expect to love a historical fiction book by now, but all my friends loved it. It was gay. I thought I would love it too. AND I DID NOT.

favorite review?

My favorite review I wrote this month probably had to be for All Out, and not for really any reason?? Like I’m just proud of it??? It’s formatted Professionally I guess. I don’t know. I LIKE IT.

mmm blogging

updates?

  • So I blogged WAY less than I normally do. Like a lot less.
  • This was because I was trying to be aware of my mental health and cut out stress from blogging!!!
  • And I can’t decide if this actually helped?? Because I had so much free time (especially over Spring Break) and I really didn’t do anything, which 1) caused a vicious cycle of regret and self-hatred and feeling drained and then continuing to do nothing because I was drained, and 2) allowed time for Bad Thoughts.
  • So maybe if I’d been blogging, I might’ve been more distracted??
  • But I mean, if I’d been blogging, I would’ve ended up hating it more and more because there were times where I just did not want to blog.

post of the month?

I literally posted three times this month. One was a recap. One was a response to feedback survey results. Only ONE was a “real post” which was:

privilege ya

My favorite post also happened to be this one! It was really interesting to see everyone’s comments on that, because I loved finding out about how others saw this issue! It was also a lot of fun to rant about things. As always.

mmm writing

  • Y’all I literally accomplished NOTHING this month with writing.
  • I actually had the motivation to write, which doesn’t happen often, and I wanted to write!! A lot!!!
  • But then 1) I got distracted by other things, or 2) I… had no inspiration. None.
  • So the main thing that I wanted to work on this month was plotting my WIP and developing my characters so that I could outline it for Camp NaNo. Well guess who still has no plot!!!

Image result for vine gif

  • I’m going to try to attempt plotting/outlining for Camp NaNo this month, but between school exams and my very unpredictable mental health, I have no idea how much I’ll be able to accomplish!!
  • UPDATE: It’s April 4th and I have written nothing. Absolutely nothing. 
  • But I do want to know what the first few chapters will look like since I’m planning to write them and send it off to a writing contest. :)))
  • I was able to complete a 4K-word short story tho! My literal only motivation for that was that I was entering it for a writing contest, and if I won the writing contest, I would get money. I have no shame.
  • Anyways I really liked how the short story turned out! It’s about a girl named Ash(a) who has depression, a tree lady named Kiri, and it’s very simple but meaningful. It also used to feature a Vine reference about croissants that I sadly had to delete.

mmm life

  • So I explained a little about what went on with my mental health in the blogging section (concerning the Vicious Cycle), but basically, it got to the point where I was having multiple breakdowns that involved crying each night for three nights, and it was just… uncontrollable.
  • There were also some other things made worse by my anxiety & social anxiety, but yeah. Basically lots of emotional fragility!!
  • Uhh besides that, I think I had an averagely good month! Mental health was great in the beginning, and then after Spring Break it got better. AND I also got to spend some time with my friends that mostly revolved around…
  • LOVE, SIMON!!!!

Image result for love simon

  • Y’all, this movie means the literal WORLD to me. I love it SO SO much and I’ve seen it three times already.
  • I felt so represented as a queer person, even tho I don’t identify as a white gay male, because there were so many parts of Simon’s story I could see myself in. And some of the words said to/by Simon about being gay and coming out really resonated with me. I shed lots and lots of tears.
  • IT’S SO GOOD IT’S SO GOOD PLEASE GO SEE IT IF YOU HAVEN’T THREE TIMES IS A BIG DEAL AND I CRIED ALL THREE TIMES I WENT AND SMILED AND LAUGHED AND IT WAS SUCH A CATHARTIC EXPERIENCE FJASLDFJALSDFSD.
  • (It’s literally to the point where I’ll listen to the soundtrack or score and start tearing up.)
  • Speaking of music, I’ve been listening to more this month!! Listening to Lesbian Jesus Hayley Kiyoko really really helped me when I was having breakdowns or on the verge of one. Also!! Her debut album Expectations is AMAZING and gay and I love it (as well as Keiynan Lonsdale’s Kiss the Boy)!!!

  • And now to get a little serious: If you haven’t heard yet, there were about 4 package bombs/explosions in Austin, Texas. (And another down south.) Google is your friend if you want to know more, but basically, I live really close to Austin. We didn’t know if they might leave some package bombs in my area.
  • The serial bomber died on March 21, nineteen days after the first package exploded. 2 were killed and several others were injured. The sad thing is that it didn’t get much publicity in the US, most likely because: There was no information on the race of the bomber at first, and the victims were people of color.
  • The bomber turned out to be white. And yet, if it were a person of color, hurting white people… you probably would be seeing more of this in the news.
  • To end on a better note: I had a dance show that lasted all day and I’m sore and achy and tired but it was very fun and full of lots of sentimental sappy things and I LOVED IT!!

mmm old goals

READING

  • read at least 10 books  (I WAS SO CLOSE!!! I finished a book on April 1st so I MIGHT have been able to accomplish it, but nope)
  • write & upload at least 10 reviews  (I’m… laughing hysterically at Past Me who thought I could do this. what the frick. do I not know myself at all. I uploaded three reviews this month. THREE)
  • request more ARCs  (well, I’ll be getting an ARC for a blog tour!! and since the purpose of this goal was to get more ARCs, I’m saying I accomplished it!!!)

WRITING

  • ACTUALLY plot my WIP ✗✗✗ (uhhh yikes)
  • write more poetry  (so I kind of wrote more poetry?? a little??)
  • write 4K short story for writing contest  (I DID, and I’m very proud!!)

BLOGGING

  • reach 1,220 followers  (I am… so surprised people followed me this month?? when I posted like four times???
  • take a break  (I DID. IT WAS FUN. I’M STILL ON MY BREAK.)
  • COMMENT & REPLY TO COMMENTS ON TIME ✗ (I’m literally a month behind on replying to comments)

LIFE

  • drink 1 water bottle each day 
  • SEEEEELF-CAAAAARE  (I’m counting this because I kind of did it)
  • get 8 hours of sleep at least three times a week  (no)

mmm new goals

READING

  • read at least 8 books (I have school state exams this month so I’m keeping it on the down low)
  • write & upload at least 5 reviews (I’ve given up on my RTCs from like,, October 2017)
  • request more ARCs (this is again part of my plan to Get As Many Free Books As I Can And Validate Myself In The Process)

WRITING

  • write 10,000 words of plot for Camp NaNo (I don’t know how achievable this is but I just WANT A PLOT FOR MY WIP UGH)
  • and that’s pretty much my only writing goal because god knows I won’t be able to achieve even that

BLOGGING

  • reach 1,240 followers (I am HOPING that I’ll be posting more this month so hopefully that means more followers?)
  • continue on my break-ish thing (mental health = still not good, posting = still not regular)
  • COMMENT & REPLY TO COMMENTS ON TIME (I GOTTA DO THIS I GOTTA DO THIS)

LIFE

  • drink 1 water bottle each day
  • SEEEEELF-CAAAAARE
  • get 8 hours of sleep at least three times a week

mmm looking ahead

School state exams!! Texas always has the STAAR test around this time of year (April and May) so you can bet that I’ll be stressing out about those. I’ll be in a testing room for 4 hours, no talking, minimal eating, and feeling very sleepy. BUT. One of two activities I can do when I’m done is READ (the other option is nap) so maybe I can read a lot!??!

Camp NaNo hopefully? The hopefully part is very big because I have no idea how my mental health will be this month, and I want to start getting into blogging regularly again. So that might mean writing gets pushed to the side. Howeverrrr I’m REALLY hoping that I’ll get a lot of planning done (at least in my head maybe?).

Trying not to stress about the end of the year. End of the SCHOOL year, really. This is the last quarter and the last semester, finals are coming up in May*, and I am determined to end this year with all averages above 95. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be doing an unhealthy amount of stressing to achieve that.

*I DON’T HAVE A SCIENCE FINAL BECAUSE WE ALREADY HAVE THE SCIENCE STAAR TEST AND I MAY NOT GET A MATH FINAL BECAUSE OF THE MATH STAAR CAN YOU HEAR ME HOLLERING BECAUSE I AM


shall we chat

how was march for you? are you ready for summer vacation yet? are you participating in camp nano? have you listened to expectations or kiss the boy yet? HAVE YOU SEEN LOVE, SIMON YET???? take care of yourself, lovelies!!!!

  1. I’m sorry that March was a crummy month for you. I hope April will be better!

    And oh my goodness yes! Love, Simon! I dragged my Mum into the city with me to watch it (Probably at least an hour and a half drive each way…) because my local cinema wasn’t going to have it! And I am so glad I did because it was amazing!

  2. Oh, it’s terrible that March was so awful! But you’re so strong! I do hope April is MUCH better than the first quarter of the year.
    Also, Love Simon was so fantastic! I keep smiling about it because is was so lovely! I can’t wait till it comes out on DVD!
    But you did get so much reading done! That’s super impressive! I kind of have this goal of writing a historical fiction you’ll enjoy, haha! I enjoy historical fiction so much, though I know it can be super boring.
    The situation with the Austin bomber was so terrifying. I have friends in Austin, and I was so frightened for them. And frustrated at the lack of national coverage and how the police and media handled it. I’m glad you stayed safe!
    Summer break is almost here! You’ve got this!!!

    1. Thank you so so much, Elizabeth!! 💖 And yes I’m so excited for when it’ll come out on DVD! I’m definitely buying it to rewatch over and over. 😂

      Aahh thank you so much! And OMG PLEASE WRITE A HISTORICAL FICTION I LOVE. MAKE IT GAY. And I think I used to like historical fic more? Don’t know what happened oops.

      And yeah, I know. I’m like 45 min away from downtown Austin and had no idea if the bomber would come to us? So that was scary. And I’m super frustrated that it didn’t make a lot of news because if the roles of white people/POC had been switched, it definitely would’ve been much bigger!!!

      1. Ah, yes, I want to write historical fiction so much! I actually wrote a whole post today about history I want to write into books. And yes, I want to make it diverse and queer and completely awesome.

  3. I’m sorry March wasn’t a good month for you and I hope April will be better. I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying your break, though. And, OMG LOVE SIMON WAS SO AMAZING I SAW IT THREE TIMES AND I NEED TO SEE IT AGAIN AND I JUST WANT TO MAKE EVERYONE WATCH IT BECAUSE IT’S SO GOOD. I totally agree with that thing you say about connecting to the movie, even though you don’t identify as a white gay guy, because that’s exactly how I felt. Like I literally sobbed through half of the movie, and my friends didn’t understand whY AND I– I had to explain it to them, and that destroyed me, but it was fun. ALSO EXPECTATIONS IS SO GOOD AND I HAVE BEEN PLAYING KISS THE BOY ON REPEAT FOR LIKE A WEEK I LOVE IT SO MUCH!! It’s like the only thing I’ve been listening to as I draft (because I am Camp NaNoing this year, apparently, idk).
    and I cannot wait for summer break!
    Take care ❤

    1. Thank you, lovely!! I hope you have an amazing April as well. ❤ AND YES I LOVE IT SO SO MUCH EVERY TIME I WATCHED IT WAS WHOLE NEW EXPERIENCE AAAHHH. And omg yes like it just meant so much to see gay characters on screen??? And the way certain scenes were crafted made me sob (the mom scene anyone?). EXPECTATIONS AND KISS THE BOY ARE THE ONLY THINGS I’M LISTENING TO NOW and good luck with Camp NaNo!! 💞

  5. Aww, I’m sorry March wasn’t a good month for you! I’m really really hoping April is a lot better.❤️OKAY BUT I HAVEN’T SEEN LOVE, SIMON YET AND I REALLY REALLY WANT TO. Except I haven’t read the book yet and I have this internal rule that I can’t watch the movie until I read the book and I want to see it in theaters tho…help. 😂

    Also, I have the STAAR test next week… *screams because wHY* And I heard about the bomb packages in Austin! I don’t live super close, but close enough that I was worried that it would happen where I am.

    I hope April goes well, with your tests and Camp NaNo and everything, May!❤️

    1. Aaahh thank you so much, Olivia!! 💞 And YES AFTER YOU READ THE BOOK, GO SEE THE MOVIE IMMEDIATELY. It’s so worth it.

      I literally forgot about having the STAAR test so soon because we barely talked about it!! (And omg I didn’t know you lived in Texas! Are you in central TX?)

      Good luck to you as well! You’ll do amazing on the STAAR. 😉

        1. I’d personally say to read the book first, but it honestly doesn’t matter because they have the perfect balance of similarities and differences!

  6. OMG I watched Love Simon yesterday with book bloggin friends and it was sosososososo great omg!! ❤ ❤ I mean, it had flaws (definitely a privileged white male's story) but it was really sweet and I just loved how it was a rom com except gay ahhhhhh. This month I basically had heaps of university assignments and got used to living in a dorm and being at college and stuff. I didn't really blog much but I hope you're enjoying your break ❤ ❤

    1. Love Simon was so much better than I was expecting and I literally love it so much!!! Yeah it definitely had flaws (the ending was actually kind of exploitive imo) but it’s still a fav of mine. ❤ And aahh that sounds stressful but I’m glad you've settled in to your dorm!!

  7. Ooh, it’s boo when health catches up to you but I’m glad you’re okay now! [I totally see Love, Simon has something to do with that and I’m ridiculously jealous you got to see it THREE TIMES already when it’s only released in freaking June here.. The green monster is present all the darn time whenever someone tells me how often they’ve seen the movie, haha.]

    I’m soooo pissed Furyborn is ending up being a disappointment for pretty much.. everyone I follow? Like.. That doesn’t bid well for when I’m going to pick it up since those people’s opinions often mirror my own and I don’t want the darn thing to be a disappointment? You saying the bi rep isn’t good will be the death of me. That’s like.. “my” rep and I hate seeing it executed badly. So, we’ll see. Maybe I’ll end up throwing the thing out the window. [Wouldn’t that be fun.]

    LOVE your new bookshelf! Like, it’s huge but it’s soooo pretty! You definitely need more books to fill it up though. Totally validates wanting free books and ordering books and simply begging people to buy you books. You have my support!

    Hope you’ll have an awesome month this April, May! ❤

    1. Thank you so much, Kathy! ❤ And aahh I hope you've been able to see Love, Simon by now, and if not, then I hope you're able to see it soon!! It's really truly amazing 😍

      I'm seeing some people really love Furyborn, and I think I heard something about the ARC being different from the FC so that may be why?? (I don't know though, I don't think much could have redeemed how bad it was for me. 😅) And yes, same! I'm loving this increase of bi rep in fantasy but it also means that there's a chance it could harm me or other people in the bi community :/

      Thank yooou! I'm really loving my bookshelf and I've gotten a few more books since April, but definitely not enough to fill it all up 😭

      1. I have and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT TO PIECES. I want to go a second time but my boyfriend is refusing me. Just you wait. As soon as I can get my hands on the bluray, I’ll be watching it again and again and again! ❤

        Ugh, yup. Although I sometimes feel like I'm so.. ignorant when it comes to certain things. I guess I'm simply not easily harmed / hurt in any way when it comes to books. Maybe I'm simply too used to certain views that cause me to simply accept problematic things as normal? I don't know.

        Eh, the excuse to buy / get more books is still standing then! [My bookcases are more a case of "stop buying books or we'll collapse on top of you" by now..]

  10. Oh May I’m sorry March wasn’t a good month for you. I get where you’re coming from struggling with your mental health because I struggle with mine every so often and I guess the important thing is to take care of yourself, which it seems like you’re doing. I’m sure April will be a better month for you. 🙂
    I’m also sorry Furyborn and And I Darken were disappointments but I’m glad you loved the Love, Simon movie. That’s only being released in the UK tomorrow and I am so so so excited because I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about it. 🙂 ❤️
    Good luck with your goals for next month, and with Camp NaNo/your WIP. Fingers crossed you’ll be able to read and write loads in April. 😀
    Great post, and I hope you have an even better month. 🙂 ❤️

    LOOK AT YOUR PRETTY SHELF YOU SUPERSTAR. WOW. so aesthetically pleasing. why are you so good at everything seriously please

    i’m sorry it was a rough month mental health wise bbg 😦 but also i’m sososososo glad that things began to look up a bit!!! also plz don’t strain yourself over getting 95s, that’s bonkers!! school is stressful enough without putting excess pressure on yourself

    & finally….I LOVED LOVE, SIMON. i didn’t even love the book! who knew. who could’ve seen it coming. anyway ily and you’re the best and i hope you have the best most zen relaxing successful conclusive fun april in the history of time and space. ❤

  12. Oh May, I’m sorry that March wasn’t the best month for you, but yay for taking breaks, breaks are important and what matters is that you are feeling a bit more relaxed about everything, blogging can bring a lot of stress and taking time away from it can really help. I’m glad you took care of yourself and I hope you’ll continue and that April will be amazing for you ❤ I'm sending you all the hugs and love ❤
    Also yay for getting The Astonishing Color of After, that's so amazing! I can't wait to read that one, I really hope you will love it.
    I'm glad you enjoyed Love, Simon! I can't wait to see it, I have to wait until the end of June, when it finally releases in my country, but I can't wait.
    YOUR SHELF IT IS SO VERY PRETTY I LOVE IT.
    Best of luck for all of your April goals and for your writing ❤ Take care of yourself ❤

  13. *sighs* I put “hopefully” on my Camp NaNo goal for this month, too, since my emotional state, like yours, has not been great and life is just roughhh. I hope you end up making your goal though (and that you start feeling better)!!

    I’m glad you liked The Wicker King! I’ve been meaning to read it since it came out but have not gotten around to it.

    And that’s so disappointing about Furyborn! I’ve been on the fence about reading it but since it has bi rep maybe I’ll try it? But if it’s not good bi rep like you mentioned I’m going to be sad. Alas.

  16. Oh no, I’m very sorry to hear that March was a really tough month for you 😦 I do hope things get better, even with exams on the horizon!

    YES new bookshelf, that is always very exciting!!! I already love the shelves that you have filled up, they look pretty aesthetically pleasing to me 💗 I wish you the best luck with your writing! It’s not always easy (I didn’t write for 4 months after NaNo last year), but sometime it will work out again 💗

    I’m also so glad that you got to see Love, Simon this is so exciting! I have to wait a bit until it gets released in my country, but I’m much looking forward to watching it 🙂
