Hi… I’m Back?? (A Recap on Everything that Happened While I Was Hiding From Everyone)

Hi… I guess I’m back??

I thought I was going to be back when I posted my review for The Fever King but apparently life had other plans and loves to hold me captive!

A Lot of things have happened since I last posted a monthly wrap-up (for… January??), so I decided to just write a neat little recap of everything that happened while I was gone as an update post, since there are a lot of things I want to talk about!

Unfortunately, I did not do the blog-hopping and comment-replying I really hoped to get done during my hiatus (you’ll see why), but I feel a lot more refreshed from this break and hopefully you’ll see more of that for the rest of this month!!

May’s Moments of the Month: January // Worst Book Slump Yet, All Over the Place Mental Health, but Lots of Self-Care!!

I think we can all collectively agree that January didn’t happen, yes?

January always flies by so fast but I… genuinely have no recollection of anything this year. I can make out vague events but it feels like such a long time ago. When did the new year start? I have no idea.

Overall, it wasn’t a horrible start to 2019, but it wasn’t a great start either. The best part about the month, though, was actually practicing self-care, and I’m super proud of myself for doing that, especially with other parts of my life not doing so well!

2-Year Blogiversary Q&A! // Screaming About the Same Books, Giving Blogging Advice, and Not Enough Food Questions

Hello, my name is May, and I can’t stop talking about the same books?

This whole post is basically just a love letter to Six of Crows, The Foxhole Court, and Percy Jackson. Do I care? Not really.

Books aside, a few days ago I celebrated my 2-year blogiversary and asked for your questions for a Q&A, and here it is! Again, thank you all so so much for your support these past years, whether you followed me a few days ago or a few years ago!

(Also if you’d like to help me better my blog for you lovely people, I’d love to hear your feedback on my feedback survey!!)

It’s My 2-Year Blogiversary!! // Me Being a Sap, Shoutouts to the Friends Who Made My Year, and Some… Promises

So… hi. I’ve officially been blogging for two years.

It feels so weird to be saying that?? Like one year was HUGE to me, and somehow, two is even larger? I mean, obviously, because two years is longer than one, but it feels like I took a big leap from my first to second year of blogging and I just feel so in awe that I’m still here.

I think this year with blogging has been the most impactful on me. Yes, there’s only one other year to compare it to, and yes, there could be so many more impactful years of blogging, but I feel like my first year was me flying, and my second was just falling.

I just. have a lot of thoughts about this day. It makes me happy, it makes me nostalgic, and it makes me bittersweet. Because this last year of blogging, while amazing, has been horrible, yet also exciting, and just makes me feel… a bunch of emotions.

But!!! I’m going to keep the negativity for the end of this post (it couldn’t be helped I’m sorry) and be more positive!!! Because I am so proud of myself for making it this far and I just want to CELEBRATE my achievements!!!! I love you all so much!!!!!!

May’s Moments of the Month: December // Stressful Midterms, a Lot of Books, and a Pretty Okay End to the Year!!

December was… interesting.

There were a lot of things that happened last month, and a majority of them were fortunately good! Overall I feel like it was just crammed with A Lot: midterms, winter break, rushing to finish my Goodreads challenge, dance.

And it wasn’t a bad way to end the year either! Even though I finished like three books in the last hour of the year, and still had breakdowns, it was definitely not the worst way 2018 could have ended, and for that I’m thankful.
