Yikes, I can’t believe May is gone already. I feel like it was just last week I was trying to figure out what to do for my birthday and now a month has passed. This year is simultaneously flying by and dragging, if you ask me. Of course, I’m also still here thinking it’s 2020 or 2021, despite the leniency in mask-mandates in my area (and everywhere, really).
This month was better for reading, though I didn’t read more than last month. I’m still in a bit of a weird haze, but now it’s more like I’m going in and out of it each day. Also, it took me forever to read Sense & Sensibility… like twelve days, y’all. That’s a lot of days for me to finish and book. I think it took me less to read Gone With the Wind.
In any case, I’m hoping my reading will pick up a bit for June because I still have many, many, many books to read.

I’m going to admit it, watching Girl Meets World last month turned me into a Sabrina Carpenter fan – of her acting and music. So I definitely went to see what else she’s been in and found this little gem of a movie on Netflix (along with two others that she co-stars in). Work It was fun because it’s a dance movie, and I do enjoy dance movies. There are some fun laughs in this movie, and the casting is pretty great, but I will say that it’s not my favorite dance film. That title belongs to Dirty Dancing, followed very closely by Feel the Beat (which is also a Netflix film).
I also watched Tall Girl and Tall Girl 2, partly because of Sabrina Carpenter’s part in the films, and mostly because they were recommended to me by a patron at work. I have to say the first one is a lot better, due to the story being about Jodie’s overcoming her insecurity about being so tall. It has more of a message to it than the second film. Don’t get me wrong, the second one is great too, but the first is more meaningful, whereas the second is more for fun (in my opinion).
That’s all for my May Wrap Up. I was tempted to buy more books than I actually got, but I have been trying to be good. In other news, I’m very excited for Monday (June 6th) because I’ll be going to Soman Chainani’s book signing for his new book, The Rise of the School Good and Evil – the prequel to his School for Good and Evil series!
What did your May look like?
