May comes at an end today and I couldn't be happier. It started fine because you know, Sense8 came back and season 2 was spectacular but it also broke my heart and I'm hoping we get a third season because otherwise I'll be pissed! Besides that, as a whole, May hasn't been a good month for me. Nothing bad happened but I haven't been in the right mental space. I'm used to May being revision month but this year, I don't know why, I haven't had the motivation I had other semesters. I'm always stressed out but this time around I've also been apathetic and sad. And finals aren't over yet. However, I'm gonna try my best and just beat my own brain.

May is almost at an end and that means book haul time. To be fair, I have not spent much on books this month, and although my wishlist is growing longer for the minute, I'm keeping my promise of buying less. So far it's been working and my urge to buy books has decreased despite my wishlist growing, as I said. So I have 4 books to show you today. One of them was a pre-order I did in February and the other is a book I bought in April but arrived at the beginning of May and the other two are from the May Moth Box so technically these last two are the only ones I really bought in May. I'm proud of myself so fingers crossed I can stick with this new way of aquiring books for years to come - unless of course it's my birthday or Christmas.

Got my second Moth Box in the mail! I was so happy when I got a notification to go and pick it up at the Post Office. It kinda lightened my mood since I started finals yesterday and I can't seem to catch a break when it comes to the stress department. Anyways, let's talk about the two beautiful books that came in the box.

I apologise for not uploading anything in the blog this week but my stress is off the roofs recently because finals start in two weeks and revising is killing me and everything frustrates me and I don't have the energy to sit down and write a proper blogpost because I feel really guilty. That's why I haven't actually do any blog hopping either. However, I didn't wanna leave the blog unattended for the next month and a half so I'm just gonna write weekend reads posts until my finals are over and my brain is free.

This weekend I'm gonna try and finish both Dreams of Gods and Monsters and Am I Normal Yet? although I might not finish either of those not only because I seriously need to spend hours and hours revising (how people manage that?? need tips to help me concentrate, please!) and also Sense8 season 2 comes out TODAY! and that's a priority. Like, I can't even deal and the trailers look fantastic and my babies and - can you tell I'm obsessed with that show?

You know how every single month I'm like "I need to buy less books" and it never happens? Well, here's the proof. I try my best but internet deals are the devil. Here are the books I aquired in April. My mum gifted me Las cosas que perdimos en el fuego by Mariana Enriquez - which has been translated into English - for El Día del Libro (World Book Day). All books will be link down below as always.

And another month goes by. To be fair, this time it didn't fly around for me; it was quite a slow month in general and I spent half of it reading - I can't even believe I have managed to read all of these books - and half of it studying for University. I'm all caught up with all my courses and I'm ready to start revising for finals which will be at the end of May/beginning of June. I'm still in awe that for once in my life, I've being productive as hell if I say so myself. Hurray! Basically I wrote down all I had to do and I organised it throughout the first three weeks of April. At the same time I told myself I had to read for fun at least 30 minutes every single day in order to avoid being slumpy due to stress. It worked.
