I am keeping to my resolve of not posting pressuring TBRs, however, I cannot really stick to my plan of not buying any books. I make regular detours to the comic as well as the regular book store and they never end well for my purse. As I’ve mentioned last week, I won’t add books/comics here that I already posted in my April Wrap-Up, because I don’t really see the point of having them on here twice. Let’s get started!
- The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
- Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
I am a sucker for movie-tie ins!
- The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember
Technically I pre-ordered this for my kindle, but that’s only semantics.
- Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith
I am at 7% and it seems cute.
- Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley

- Geekerella by Ashley Poston (4 stars)
- Lumberjanes, Vol. 1 (4 stars)
Honestly, this was SO fun. It was bold and hilarious but also very confusing. I love the artwork and the characters though and I cannot wait to read the rest.
- The Librarians and the Mother Goose Chase by Greg Cox (3. 5 stars)
- Saban’s Power Rangers: Aftershock (4 stars)
I am obsessed with the new Power Rangers movie, so when my trusted bookseller showed me this, I simply could not resist. It was a tad too short for me and there were these prequel chapters for another version of the Power Rangers that I really didn’t need. It’s not that they weren’t interesting, but I would get so confused about what’s happening in which universe if I tried to keep up with that as well.
- Archie, Vol. 1: The New Riverdale (4 stars)
Archiekins oh Archiekins … seriously, how is that dude still alive? Never met anyone so clumsy (not even you Cátia).
- Stealing Candy by Stewart Lewis (2.5 stars)
- Girl Out of Water by Laura Silverman (4.5 stars)

There’s not that much to talk about this month. I have all the major preparations for my trip to Canada checked off my list, now it’s just a matter of packing lightly and convincing the immigration officer to really let me stay for the entirety of six months. I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t all that though. Recommendations of all sorts for what to do during my stay are still very welcome! I am also up for a cup of tea, a movie night or a bookstore hang-out if any of you live in the area and are willing to go through the nerve-racking process of meeting me irl.
I am thinking of making #CurrentlyWatching a bi-weekly thing. It’s not that I don’t watch enough shows, but I have to feel very passionate about them or at least have thoughts I can put into words, which just really isn’t always the case.
I haven’t posted anything new for Arcadia, but since I won’t have a job while I am in Canada and I tend to go crazy if I don’t have something to do, I intend to make writing my full time job while I am away and hopefully that will also mean tons of new chapters for you. However, I might still do the Beautiful People Link-Up in the meantime, just because I don’t want to get out of the story and the character’s world entirely. How hilarious was that first kiss scene in chapter 10 though? As always, you can read the whole thing here.
