Monthly Recaps

MAY RECAP // a lot of essay writing, cute new books & some romance to relieve the stress

Who doesn’t love when Ruby only does recaps? Definitely not you, because you love me no matter what I do right?

I’m full of myself I know. Please just ignore me.

Let’s get into this already ; )

Sabrina September Is A Liar by Nikki Lincoln {★★★★☆}: never going to get over how stunning this cover is and you all so need to read this absolutely fabulous debut romance! I was SHOCKED it was a debut because the writing is blow-you-socks-off good and I’m so excited to see Nikki flourish. Tysm for gifting me with an ARC and a finished copy!!! Click here for the GR review xoxo!

Meet Me At The Lake by Carley Fortune {★★★★☆}: Another stunner of a cover, gosh these pinks are getting to me, man. This was an excellent follow-up to Every Summer After, which I really liked last year. She almost had the potential to get a higher rating but something was holding me back. But I loved the characters, and the writing was wonderful and I literally want to go to Canada rn. Love that for me. I’m truly going haha. Click here for more thoughts

With Love, From Cold World by Alicia Thompson {★★★★☆}: This book was one of those I read at a time that I mentally needed it and honestly she’s a winner for that. I haven’t read this author’s previous book but I do really want to. I had a feeling this one would be good and I was glad my intuition was right. Perfect witty yet vulnerable writing, vivid setting and ofc a stunning romance. With a ton of diversity that was explored really well. And she was stunning.

The month was slow in this department, but I went to the theatre a few times with my stunning friend Amy, where we watched To Catch A Killer which was if anything very entertaining *wink wink*

And then we ~just~ went to see The Little Mermaid, which was UGH so good. To be honest, I was nervous about how the ocean CGI would be since Lion King was so scary, but I was thoroughly surprised and I didn’t even know the difference. Halle’s voice was amazing, Eric was amazing, and their romance was amazing. My only critique is I felt the ending was rushed? But I was overwhelmed and I need to see it again so this point may change.

Other than that, it was films for class, random ones I don’t care about and also Maybe I Do. Which was not as bad as the reviews say but also just average.

Oh, and I watched Maid on Netflix because TikTok got to me hehe. It was really good and creatively really well done. I prefer Shameless though welp

My laptop got stolen so that needed to be replaced. And some other stuff that set my mental health off so these last few weeks have been a push.

Literally just a few days ago so technically in June, but I have wrapped up for the semester. Which feels great! Though I have lots of research to work on, however, I’m home free for the next week or so.

What else? My brain doesn’t know how to function anymore so I think that’s it.

Oops. Love you all though <3<3<3<3
