Wrap Up – May 2016

Hey guys! Since today is the first day of June, I figured that I would do a May Wrap up post to show what I was up to this past month!

✴ Finished Freshman Year! ✴

As of May 5th, I have officially finished my freshman year of college! Woop woop! It was a year full of many ups and downs, but I’ve learned so much from so many people and I already feel myself changing for the better.


And, of course, I celebrated by watching Captain America: Civil War because that’s how *THIS* Marvel girl celebrates😂

✴ Trip to Iran ✴

I went to visit my dad’s family in Iran for 16 days and it was really fun! I’m planning on doing a separate travel post on this, so stay tuned!

✴ Books Read in May ✴


Despite the very hectic first week in May, I was surprisingly able to read a total of 7 books! Yay! I loved all of these books, but I think that Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, and Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson take the cake. I re-read Clockwork Angel because 1) The Infernal Devices is one of my absolute FAVORITE series and 2) I’m preparing myself for Lady Midnight which I bought when it first came out, but I wanted the previous stories to be fresh in my mind when reading that to get the full effect of the amazingness that is the Shadowhunter world and Cassie Clare😋

  1. Book Review: Beastly Bones by William Ritter ★★★★☆
  2. Me Before You – Jojo Moyes ★★★★★
  3. Dorothy Must Die – Danielle Paige ★★★★☆
  4. The Wicked Will Rise – Danielle Paige ★★★★☆ (4.5/5)
  5. Clockwork Angel (re-read) – Cassandra Clare ★★★★★
  6. Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour (ebook) – Morgan Matson ★★★★☆ (4.5/5)
  7. Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins ★★★★★

✴ June tbr! ✴

I’m still patiently waiting for them to come in the mail, but here they are! I’m hoping to be able to read all of these in June because I will be taking a summer class throughout the course of the month and I will also start back work, so fingers crossed!


  1. Since You’ve Been Gone – Morgan Matson
  2. Yellow Brick War – Danielle Paige
  3. Unrivaled – Alyson Noel
  4. The Shadowhunter’s Codex – Cassandra Clare
  5. The Wrath and the Dawn – Renee Ahdieh
  6. The Rose and the Dagger – Renee Ahdieh

✴ I Finally Made a Bookstagram! ✴
