What’s On Your Nightstand: May 2017

What’s on Your Nightstand, is a monthly meme hosted by 5 Minutes for Books on the last Tuesday of every month that summarizes what you’ve read for the month, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan to read next. For my posts, I also include articles, music, art, TV shows, and whatever else I did in the month.

May was such an eventful and busy month, but a great one as well. My reading is back on track and life is full of bustling fun. I am happy and am looking toward the future with high hopes about what I can accomplish.

In this month, I noticed an improvement in my driving skills (I’m learning how to drive), made new friends, saved some money, and took a leap of faith that turned out well at the beginning of June (I’m vague here, but I’ll mention it some more in my June wrap-up).

I also committed to a natural journey for my hair (though at this moment, as I’m typing this post, I’m tempted to book an appointment to relax my hair and throw in some purple highlights), but it’s hard to remain committed so we’ll see what happens by the end of June. Anyway, here’s what happened this month:

What’s On Your Nightstand: April 2017

What’s on Your Nightstand, is a monthly meme hosted by 5 Minutes for Books on the last Tuesday of every month that summarizes what you’ve read for the month, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan to read next. For my posts, I also include articles, music, art, TV shows, and whatever else I did in the month.

I’ve been struggling with my reading since the beginning of the year, but it picked up this month. Finally, I’ve started to read books that capture my attention and no longer do I feel like hopping from book to book. But though my reading took a positive turn this month, I was ill for most of it due to my allergies reacting to the pollen in the air.

I’ve spent almost all of April with a stuffy nose, itchy throat, headache, a cough, and sometimes a fever. I took a break from blogging a couple weeks ago because I was too weak to do much, returned because I felt better, but now I’m sick again, though not as much as last time. I now realize that doctors give good advice and I should have rested, as my doctor had prescribed (I’m stubborn so I often don’t do as I’m told). Anyway, back to the fun stuff.

What’s On Your Nightstand: January 2017

What's On Your NightstandWhat’s on Your Nightstand, is a monthly meme hosted by 5 Minutes for Books on the last Tuesday of every month that summarizes what you’ve read for the month, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan to read next. For my posts, I also include articles, music, art, TV shows, and whatever else I did in the month.

January was rough for me. After all the wrap-ups and reflections and look-ahead posts, I was drained and wasn’t in the mood to read or blog. I instead spent much of my time watching movies and TV shows and now have so many TV shows I want to keep up with that I’ll have to make a schedule for them. I also read a couple interesting articles because of the divisive administration currently in power in the U.S., but I didn’t keep track of them so unfortunately, I won’t be able to share much in that section. But, enough of my rambling. Here’s what I did in January.

Weekend Reads #61: What’s On Your Nightstand: October 2016

What's On Your NightstandWeekend Reads is a weekly post in which I discuss a variety of topics and mention the books I plan to read on the weekend. For this week’s entry, I’ll do a What’s on Your Nightstand post, which is a monthly meme hosted by 5 Minutes for Books on the last Tuesday of every month that summarizes what you’ve read for the month, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan to read next.

I treat my What’s On Your Nightstand posts as quick wrapups because usually the books on my nightstand are the ones I recently completed that are waiting to be reviewed. The books I’m currently reading are usually in my purses since I mostly read while commuting to work and other places. But now my nightstand is clear because I’m all caught up on reviews. It’s the first this has ever happened as I’m always behind on them. I’m quite proud of myself. Anyways, here are the books I completed since my last entry.

Villain Squad Tag

This is a pretty interesting tag that I’ve seen around booktube. I was tagged by Trisha Ann at The Bookgasm to do this back in October. Thanks Trisha!

Basically, I’ll create a villain squad based on my answers to the questions below. I’ll also adhere to Trisha’s added rule, which makes the sources for my choices limitless.

Think of your own villain identity and power!

I would have psychic powers like Prof. X from the X-men since I do this a lot —

Prof. X

I’m sure I’ll move something with my mind or read someone’s thoughts one of these days.
