May Wrap Up

May Wrap Up & Book Haul

Ah, don’t look so surprised. Nadwa’s doing a wrap up!

Yes, this month, I’ve decided to do a wrap up. Since a lot of stuff happened in May, and it honestly feels like it’s time. I think I made a sloppy wrap-up-post at some point during my wretched amateur blogging times, but this one’s going to be a well-written one -hopefully. 

I finished school on May 4th, only to stay in and study for the Official Exams which will be in 12 days. BUT, that -however- did not stop me from reading 6 books this month 😉 I did not feel like reviewing them all, though…

Series I Watched:

I finally finished binge-watching New Girl and I totally LOVED the final scene in the season 6 finale. And they decided to renew the series for a 7th and final season, I’M SO FRIGGIN EXCITED FOR MORE NESS!!

And I did re-watch the first episode of the first season of Orphan Black since the series is also going to be back in June!! But I literally forgot everything that has happened so I’ll be binge-watching the series again soon after my exams to catch up with the final season afterwards! I’m honestly mostly excited for more Helena and Alison & Donnie. Not to mention MORE CLONE-SWAPS!

 

 

I’ve also been watching Friends. And although I was super hesitant because of all its hype, I’m LOVING it so far. I’m currently watching season 2.


Blogging-wise, I created a new meme called We’re My OTP, which I still haven’t done yet 😂 It’s a meme in which you get to choose your very own ship each week, and fangirl about it, what the couple said and did and all that.

 

We're My OTP

And I created a Goodreads group for YA Book Bloggers. With a couple of my close blogging-friends as fellow moderators. You can check it out here.

      It depends on what you feel like reading. It’s not going to be this life-altering series, you know? It’s like something to read on the side. I got the whole series at once thinking I’d love the first book. But it was just meh, so I had to force myself to read the other books. The ending was okay, but I don’t think it was worth it, to be honest. A Court Of Thorns And Roses, though is definitely a MUST READ!! I really really hope you’ll like it 😍😍

    Omg I used to read After when it was still a Harry Styles fanfiction on Wattpad and I’m quite ashamed to admit that I was obsessed with it 😂 NOT ANYMORE! I can’t believe I never realised how problematic and just… bad it was lol.

    Anyway, great wrap up and I can’t wait to see your first post for your new meme! 😍

    Every Day has been in my TBR for quite a while but I never feel like reading it :/ But now I am even less motivated hahaha I guess I’m not picking that one up 😛
    But I definitely have to try those series out! I never know what to what and I end up seeing things over and over >.< I should try something new! I think I will go with Orphan Black!
    Awesome post, Nadwa! 😍
    Also, good luck with your exams! 😀 I'm only missing one ^^

          Oh yes absolutely 😂 ‘messed up’ is the understatement of the century. Of course!!! 😍😍💘 Bet you’re binge-watching it now, yeah? Once you start this show, you’ll never be able to stop until the episodes run out 😂 Enjoy! And please don’t hesitate to drop off a fangirling-filled comment. I’m watching it right now so the feels are still fresh 😂

            I AM!! ahahah 😂 But I had so see some of the first episodes twice because my boyfriend decided that he also want’s to see it 😂 So I am not super far yet but I am catching up 😛 My favorite episode so far was probably the 3rd one, it’s so freaking intense!! 😍And when they said what they were I was like WTH?!?! I didn’t see that coming… I had a different explanation in mind, which now that I think about it, wasn’t that good 😂 Holy hell… How come I didn’t star seeing this before!?

              Oh yes, the C-word messed up with my mind, too 😂😂 I really hope you like sci fi, because if you do, you’ll find this show super interesting (even if you’re not a sci fi fan, I’m certain you’ll like it either way, lol) You’ll find it too intense at first, but then there will be scenes that will definitely crack you up 😂 especially the ones with Alison and Felix, and keep an eye out for the clone-swaps, those are my favorites! Godddd, I really hope you’ll like this show.

                I’m loving it! 😀 And I love Felix ^^ He’s just so damn cool!! And there’s always something that makes me gasp in this series, which I love!! Actually, I am quite picky in sci-fi but this one I really like!!
