April Wrap Up

ENDGAME HAPPENED. AND I AM STILL NOT OKAY. 

This is what Post Endgame life is like…and I am not sure how I feel about it. April was a crazy month for me, both Blog wise and personally. In the month of April, my partner in crime and I kicked off our first event of the year for Bookend Events (Bookending Spring) which I am still waddling through all your terrific posts and hosts prompts! The event was amazing and even though we had a few hiccups and bumps along the way, I like to think it was a major success! Thank you to all who participated in this whether as a host or as a general participant– YOU guys made it to be this amazing experience and I am eternally thankful! If you didn’t get a chance to participate this time around, DON’T WORRY! We have our next event in the works with more details to come! Keep an eye out over on Clo’s blog (Book Dragons) and the events Twitter page (@bookend_events) for all the details! Continue reading “April Wrap Up”

Most Anticipated May Movie Releases

T-minus 5 days until Avengers: Endgame.

Literally Marvel is all I have throughout about these last 20 days. What is going to happen to my children? Are they safe? Will I see purple rain (get it…cause Thanos is purple and I’ need him to die from a thousand cuts)? No matter how many times I tweet at the actors, the production crew, the writers–no one will give me the answers I need.

Sheldon Cooper GIF - Sheldon Cooper BBT GIFsHell, according to Buzzfeed, Tom Holland doesn’t even know the answers. Well, I kind of figure that would happen cause the dude is a walking and breathing spoiler machine (which is one of the many qualities I love about him).

 

I guess until Endgame happens and we all fall into a puddle of shock, we can talk about the movies I am excited for in May, AKA Post Endgame.

March Wrap Up

Reading Slumps are real.

This month I have been marked by the black spot…AKA a really big reading slump–which was super inconvenient because March was a month where I was inundated with ARCs to read/review. A time truly these passed 31 days have been.

Apart from the great reading slump of 2019, March was a great bookish month, simply because I got to go to my cities annual Teen Book Convention (Teenbookcon)! I got to meet so many different authors–new-to-me and beloved ones–as well learning more from those I aspire to be like. From Angie Thomas to debut author Mimi Yu, I got to meet a plethora of amazing and talented people that took time to give us nuggets of wisdom and advice from their writing journeys.

Color me super inspired.

I may write a separate post about my time at TeenBookCon, but if you are super impatient and love instant gratification (like me), you can check out my bookstagram account (@fictionallysam) to see my highlight reel of my time there as well as some photos that I will be posting throughout the remainder of the week! So be sure to follow me on the Gram to not miss my “funny and hot take” on books in the picture format!

On that super high note, here is my wrap-up of the drought called March!
