May Favorites!

By: Taylor

May is almost over! And I feel like I’ve enjoyed so many things this month and there are still so many more things to watch/see/read/do before this month is over! May has been such a good month for entertainment and geekdom! Join me on this journey while I explore all the things I’ve loved this month so far!

YA Books

1. Books

I didn’t get to read as much in May as I would have liked to and then the books I did read were kind of meh. BUT I did buy a lot of books that I’m very excited to read. I was lucky to go to one of my favorite bookstores on Cinco de Mayo and they were having a buy 5 get 5 free on all their used books. I was in heaven. I went through all the shelves and had to make some tough choices. I left with a book on Lizzie Borden and several mystery books and even a few ghost stories. But the creme de la creme are The Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver (one of top 10 favorite authors) and Magonia by Maria Dahvana a book that takes place in space. I am so excited to read these books. I just started the Lizzie Borden book yesterday and it is amazing!

 

Movies

2. Movies

I watched several amazing movies in May. I watched Mad Max for the very first time and I loved it. Charlize Theron killed it, as always. And it was such a unique story line and unique characters. I’ve never seen a movie with Tom Hardy in it where he said only like 50 words. Mad Max was stellar. I also watched Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile, the Ted Bundy movie on Netflix. And while it started slow, the ending was great and very intense. Such a interesting movie that focuses on Ted and his long time girlfriend  Liz. I learned so many details that I didn’t know about the Ted Bundy case before. And the detailed look at his relationship with Liz adds a whole new perspective on everything you thought you knew about Ted Bundy. After this article is posted, I will also see Avengers Endgame and Detective Pikachu and I can’t wait! I’ve avoided all spoilers and I can’t wait to be able to understand jokes and read all the memes.

 

3. And all the rest…

I started watching David Dobrik vlogs on YouTube and boy, they are wild. It’s like a crazy car crash where the car flips three times and then catches on fire, but you just can’t look away. They’re kind of funny and 100% dumb, but I just can’t stop watching. I’m also obsessed with slushies. The weather is finally warm and it’s time for slushies all day, everyday. The It: Chapter 2 trailer came out and I’ve watched it at least 10 times. I can’t wait for the movie to come out in September. I’ve gone back to my roots and been completely obsessed with the new Jonas Brothers music. It’s so good, I could listen to their song Cool on repeat all day and not get tired of it. I would 100% go see them in concert if their tickets weren’t so expensive. I also returned to my roots of only wearing glitter nail polish on my hands. I did this a lot when I was a kid and wanted to do it again, but was kind of afraid it would look dumb and childish since I’m an adult now. But my mom convinced me to go for it and I’ve not looked back. My nails look like mini stained glass windows and that is how I am living my best life today.

 

Those are just a few things I enjoyed in May. What have you been watching/reading/loving this month? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I’ve been reading Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain, it’s hilarious and insightful. But I’ve been watching a lot of Netflix, Lucifer (my fave), Wine Country (hilarous), Cable Girls (emotionally gripping). Next on my list is Dead to Me (Netflix) and What We Do In The Shadows (FX) because I saw the first episode of that show and I couldn’t stop laughing.

    • I think I’m going to watch Wine Country this weekend! It has so many funny women in and I’m excited to watch it and laugh. Dead to Me also looks really good and I’ve added it to my watch list. Let me know what you think of it when you watch it!
