April Recap // Time Flew, I Read Books, Watched Gilmore Girls, & Now It’s May?

Not to be a broken record, but I don’t know how it’s already May.

Not only is it already May, but it’s already almost a week into May? I don’t understand where this month went exactly, but I’m very grateful that it went by faster than the year and a half that was March. I think almost every recap post I’ve read so far this month said the same, so I know I’m not alone in this feeling- but I still can’t believe we’re in the fifth month of 2020 already.

I’m also very excited to be writing a recap post again, because upon looking in my archives, I realized I haven’t written a proper one of these since September! That is absurd, and it just shows how off on my blogging game I’ve been. I hope I never go that long without writing a recap post again, because I love them.

Anyway, now that we’re here (thank you for being here), I’m going to talk about what I read this month (more than March! unsurprisingly, it can’t be difficult to beat March), the little that I blogged, and the even littler that I did in real life, and some goals for May!

Do You Read the Book Before Watching the Movie?? // ft. an age-old discussion, pros vs. cons, and my fave adaptations!!

“I can’t watch the movie until I’ve read the book.”

If I’ve said this once, I’ve said it a thousand trillion times. I feel like this unspoken rule of reading the book before watching the movie has been ingrained in me since the day I first cracked open a book spine…and honestly, do I even agree with it?? Or have I just been brainwashed to accept it as the norm??

Even though this is an age-old statement (well, not age-old, because movies are fairly recent in the grand scheme of things) and may seem like a trivial discussion, I’ve been feeling conflicted about this for a while now and there’s no time better than the present to talk about it.

In this post, I’m going to be talking about the pros and cons of watching the movie before reading the book and then sharing some of my favorite book-to-movie adaptations!

Without further ado, let’s get into the post. 😉

The Hamilton Book Tag // ft. Me Flailing Because This Exists?!

If I’m not reading, I’m listening to Hamilton.

This is a very true fact. I listen to Hamilton in the car, while I’m getting ready for dance, while I’m cleaning, when I’m writing blog posts- at any time, you can pick up my phone and Hamilton will either be playing or might have just been paused.

I’ve talked about loving Hamilton a couple times on my blog, but there hasn’t been an entire post dedicated to it yet, and I think that needs to change. 😉 So I decided I wanted to make a book tag about Hamilton, and then upon researching it, I discovered that it’s already in existence!

Blog Title - Design #1 (4)

The original tag was created by the booktuber Maureen Keavy way back in 1791 is that what you have, are you done October 2015, and I found the blog version here. I’m not sure if it’s allowed to do a tag so long after it was originally created, but I’m going to do it anyway because I love Hamilton too much not to.

Oh, and a quick warning- this post will contain many Hamilton lyric references, gifs, and fangirling. Continue at your own risk (I really hope you do?!), you have been warned.
