I have arcs for quite a few of these, which I haven’t gotten to yet, but will be soon. I’m especially looking forward to Making Pretty being published because I adored this book. Here are five reasons why you need it in your life, curtesy of me. 🙂 Other than reading some of the arcs, I’m really excited for P.S. I Still Love You, ACoTaR and Anything Could Happen. I’ve heard Anything Could Happen features unrequited love, I believe. So hopefully that’s the case because that would be so amazing!

~*~Music~*~

Wilder Mind
Mumford & Sons “Wilder Mind” (May 4)

The Waterfall

My Morning Jacket “The Waterfall” (May 4)

The Desired Effect

Brandon Flowers “The Desired Effect” (May 18)

True Colors

Zedd “True Colors” (May 19)
I pre-ordered Mumford & Sons and Brandon Flowers albums last month, but I may end up having to cancel M&S. 😦 Lack of funds right now (gah), but it was only a digital pre-order, so it’s not much of a hassle. I’ve really loved the three songs that I’ve heard of Brandon’s albums. I’m excited for Zedd’s album, I liked the last one quite a bit, hopefully this will be just as good.


~*~Movies~*~

Pitch Perfect 2 (May 15)

I haven’t seen Pitch Perfect 1 (still), but I really love this trailer, so I’m happy it’s coming out.

Aloft (May 22)

In the end, you surrender to life. And freedom.
I just discovered Aloft today and it sounds heartbreaking.

 ~*~Other Things~*~

I’m posting my interview with Corey Ann Haydu on the 4th and I’m so excited!
I’m also looking forward to Armchair BEA and seeing everyone recap their BEA experiences who will actually be there.
Bout of Books is coming up again on the 11th, which I’m excited about. ❤

What are you looking forward to this month? Let me know in the comments.
