PersonalLet's get the negative stuff out of the way first. In the beginning of the month I suffered of migraine with aura symptoms. I think it's stress-related but I can't be sure. There might not be any explanation behind it but it can't be coincidence if you ask me. Throughout the month I've been feeling more anxious than not. Stress has really gotten to me and sometimes I manage but other times I just can't. I want to get all the work done, I want to get it out of the way but there are so many things going on that take up my free time. Result: I don't get anything done or if I do it's at a slugs' pace. Anyway. Let's talk about fun things now.
I'm so proud that I did the #novelnellieapril16 book photo challenge in April. I'm so happy with how creative I got and how pretty my photos turned out. PROGRESS PEOPLE! I posted every single day, without forgetting but I got the help of Later for that. This is seriously the best way to keep up with photo challenges.
Back in February, I won one of the Love-a-Thon prizes and this month the first few books arrived! I'll be showcasing those in my upcoming book haul. It's gonna be a big one guys (at least for my standards)!
• Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas // reread
• Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas // reread
• Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas // reread
Wow so many rereads! Never thought I would find such joy in rereading my books. I had so much fun rereading the Throne of Glass series. Initially I was going to read one book per month or so in anticipation of Empire of Storms but the excitement got the better of me and well... This reread changed my view on the series but not in a negative way at all. I love rereading.

• Beyonce dropped Lemonade this month. Unlike her previous album I'm not a fan of every single song but my faves are Freedom, Formation and 6 Inch. The others are good too though.
• Great music this month:
