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!
Well, I’ve done it again, I’ve bought more books. Every month, I swear that I’m going to read all the books on my shelves and not buy any books until I’m finished. And I literally never listen to myself, I’m such a push over. If it helps, I did restrain myself a little and only bought like 5 books. And honestly, I deserve an award for controlling myself so much. One gold medal, please! Anyway, on with the book haul!
Hi, geeks! Spring has sprung! And I’m sneezing 50 times a day despite taking the strongest allergy medicine available over the counter. But in between sneezing, I’ve spent the month of March enjoying many wonderful new things and who better to share my favorite things from March than you lovely geeks? No one! There’s books, shows, podcasts, youtube, etc.! Get a snack, sit down, and let’s talk about some amazing things!
So, it’s no surprise that I love YA books, I read them exclusively. But it may be a surprise that I love a good contemporary YA book. Sometimes I’m not all about murder, space, historical YA, etc. It’s a bit weird for me, but I’m learning to fully embrace the contemporary genre! There’s something amazing about reading a characters journey through life or particular situation. It can be heartfelt, powerful, sad, joyful, or all of those at once (usually that’s when you know you’ve found a good contemporary YA). While I’m learning to indulge in the contemporary YA genre, I thought I would share my top list of my favorite contemporary reads I’ve read so far. Here we go!
