SUMMER READING START: May 2022 Wrap Up

I’m writing this wrap-up post on Memorial Day, which is my unofficial start to summer. I have read SO much this month – it honestly feels like the kind’ve reading I do from June through August when my schedule frees up and that makes me even more excited to see what my summer reading will be like. I also didn’t watch a ton of TV this month, but I have been really enjoying the shows that I did watch.

I did read some absolutely spectacular books this month, but it is no surprise whatsoever that my absolute favorite book was Book Lovers by Emily Henry. I’ve mentioned before and while there are a few other contenders for this title, it’s my favorite book of 2022 and possibly my favorite book ever. 

Some other favorites from May include Dating Dr.Dil by Nisha Sharma, All My Rage by Sabaa Tahir, Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus, This Time Tomorrow by Emma Straub, and The Impossible Us by Sarah Lotz. I’m going to share a what I’ve been recently post soon with some of my latter reads that were mostly absolute GEMS.

Currently Reading: By the Book (Meant to Be #2) by Jasmine Guillory & Brazen by Julia Haart 

The Time Traveler’s Wife (HBO Max) – HBO’s take on The Time Traveler’s Wife is definitely a more dramatic version of the film adaptation starring Rachel McAdams, but I am hooked… and I sort’ve promise it’s not just for Theo James! Only 1 episode comes out each week (they’re about 45-50 minutes each) and every time the episode ends, I just want more. 

Workin’ Moms S6 (Netflix) – The last season or two of Workin’ Moms had been kind’ve lackluster, but WOW Season 6 made up for it. I loved Kate’s storyline and the characters we did focus on too (okay, but THAT ending with ANNE??). The show is a must-watch and I cannot wait for the next season. 

Senior Year (Netflix) – I’m not the world’s biggest movie fan, but I love randomly putting one on every now & then, with me recent pick being Senior Year starring Rebel Wilson as a high school cheerleader who wakes up from a coma twenty years after and still acts like she’s 17 years old in the early 2000s. Definitely on the comedy/not serious side, this movie was so cute and very nostalgic of a 2000s rom-com with modern changes and I want to keep seeing more movies like this!
