- May was a the month of waiting, which was incredibly frustrating. Last month, I said that May 22 was the day I’d find out if I got the scholarship to get my master degree, but the results didn’t come in. Now, the results are suppost to come out in June, so I still have to wait for a little longer. If you can keep sending good vibes my way, I would really appreciate it.
- Last month I also said that I was applying for a job and I thought I was gonna know if I got it or not in May, but it’s a job with the government, so the application process is really long. I’m still waiting for that as well.
- Thanks to all the waiting and expectations, my anxiety got out of control. It was a really hard month.
- I got to see my boyfriend, who lives in another city, but came to visit. It was really good to see him. Also, I got to spend a lot of time with my friends and it was really fun and exactly what I needed.
- There were presidential elections in my country, Colombia. It was the first round and the candidate that I like passed to the second round, but it’s very unlikely that he’ll win. If he loses, we are gonna be stuck with a far-right president AGAIN. I’m worried and sad and it sucks.
What I read
I read A LOT MORE than usual in April and I could feel at the begining of May that I was kind of going into a reading slump, I didn’t want to read as much and so I decided to re-read one of my favorite series, which is 10 books long, that’s why this wrap up is full of re-reads. Now, I’m feeling the desire to read again and I’m sure June will be a great reading month.
A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas (3 stars)
This was so disappointing, there was a bunch of unnecesary scenes and there were scenes that are simply fans’ wish fulfillment. Things I liked: Nesta’s and Cassian’s chapters and the portrait of PTSD. The review is coming next month.
Tempting the Best Man by J. Lynn (3 stars)
This is a fun, quick read. It has the sister of the best friend trope and at least it doesn’t take the usual route of the brother that doesn’t want the protagonists together, it goes in a different direction. The main characters had chemestry, but the reason they weren’t together was kind of silly and based on miscommunication.
Addictes/ Calloway Sisters Series by Krista and Becca Ritchie
This was a re-read and I really enjoyed it, since this is one of my favorite series of all time. This was the third time I read the entire series and some of the book I have read even more times (like 4 or 5). I had never written a review of any of them and this time I decided to write a few thoughts for each book on Goodreads and I’m linking that down below:
