Thoughts on May’s Reading:

  • As far as non-fiction goals go, I didn’t read any titles this month that fit the bill.
  • I read some knockout YA this month, the best being Perfectly Good White Boy by Carrie Mesrobian (out this October).
  • Although I’m still plugging along on my recapping of Sweet Valley High novels for my other blog, I’m not as into it as I was before, which is why my numbers are much lower this month.
  • I read a couple of adult fiction titles, including Mother, Mother by Koren Zailckas for book club.



Much as I’d like to, I’m not obsessively tracking what TV show episodes I watch and when.  So this will be mostly bullet points.

  • J. and I finished re-watching The Office and we’re still plugging away on the re-watching of Parks and Recreation in hopes of eventually catching back up.
  • We’re still watching Game of Thrones and Orphan Black.  I’m excited for the return of Switched at Birth and Masters of Sex (which should premiere mid-July).
  • I’ve gotten super intoThe Fosters (first season is on Netflix).


Best Movie(s) of the Month: Bachelorette

Movies Watched: 5
New: 1
Re-Watch: 4
Theater Trips: 1

Thoughts on Movies Watched in February:

  • Not a stellar month for movies.  I’m not sure why.
  • I don’t have a lot to say about the movies I saw this month.  The only one we saw in the theater was Godzilla which was kind of fun but mostly stupid.

Goals for June:

  • Continue reading and watching diverse things.  Keep up with keeping track.  Try to squeeze in a few more movies.

Happy reading and watching, readers!
