My May was filled with so many books and life happenings! I feel like I mentioned it somewhere in a blog post earlier this month, but I officially graduated with my Master of Arts in Teaching and started my first full-time job soon after! My schedule as per usual has still been packed, but I read the most amount of what I’ve read in a month so far in 2021 with 15 books!! Since I have reviews for all of these books already shared or coming, I won’t be going into too much detail here. 

Twice Shy by Sarah Hogle | 4.5/5 Stars

Summer of ’69 by Elin Hilderbrand | 4.5/5

Not That Kind of Guy by Andie J. Christopher | 2.5/5

Accidentally Engaged by Farah Herron | 4/5 

Anna K: Away by Jenny Lee 4.5/5

Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry by Joya Goffney | 3.5/5 

Dial A for Aunties by Jesse Q. Sutanto | 4/5 

Untamed by Glennon Doyle | 3/5

We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This by Rachel Lynn Solomon | 5/5 

The Lucky List by Rachael Lippincott (ARC) |4/5 

Second First Impressions by Sally Thorne | 5/5 

Meet Me in Paradise by Libby Hubscher | 4.5/5

What’s Not to Love by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka | 3.5/5 

Take Me Home Tonight by Morgan Matson | 4.5/5 

The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave | 4/5 

Friends: The Reunion (HBO Max) – I watched the Friends reunion special with my both of my sisters the night it premiered and it was quite… weird to say, the least. I loved the moments when it was just the cast on the old set or reading scenes together & the interviews with the producers, but everything else felt so out of place. Out of all the cameos/guest stars, how did they not get Paul Rudd?? 

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 2 (Disney+) – Like the rest of the world, Olivia Rodrigo’s “sour” was one of my obsessions in May, and I’ve been watching the new season of HSM The Musical series since it premiered in early May. The show is definitely on the cheesy side, but I’m nevertheless super addicted.

Ginny & Georgia (Netflix) – I avoided the Ginny & Georgia hype for a while (especially because there’s some not-so great Taylor Swift jokes), but I gave in. This wasn’t my all-time favorite show, but there was something about it like other people that had me hooked.
