Be Good To Me: Graduation is Upon Us Edition

May is the month of awesome. Sharon is graduating May 11th and while Racquel graduates June 7th, she'll be done with school by the end of May. VERY EXCITING. Plus Bout of Books is this month!

Racquel read:
  1. Love Irresistibly by Julie James  A+
  2. Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning C
  3. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare A
  4. A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare C
  5. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon  B
  6. Dark Triumph by R.L. LaFevers A
    Yes six books are listed only BUT I don't care what anyone says, Outlander (870 pages!!!) counts as THREE books. I read the equivalent of NINE books this month, y'all. I didn't read very much because I spent April watching Lost Girl, a show about Fae and it's awesome.

    The first two seasons are on Netflix for U.S. viewers and the third season just ended recently. The main character, Bo, is a bad ass and her side kick, Kenzi, is so amazing, I wish she had her own show. Definitely watch it. Anyways, after that, I started Merlin.

    Merlin gives me A LOT of FEELS. It's a medieval fantasy about sorcerers and it's just great. 4 out of 5 seasons are on Netflix so get to it U.S. peeps. Lastly, I started watching Hannibal with my brother and wow.

    Hannibal just started airing on NBC and this Thursday, episode 5 will air. It's about a cannibalistic serial killer and an FBI agent, Will Graham, who's hunting him down. The acting in this show is just phenomenal. Hugh Dancy as Will Graham and Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal are just so darn perfect for their roles. I'm obsessed with these characters and what will happen to them.

    I just wanted to share that because these 3 shows are worth your time but back to books!! 

    Racquel's April favorites: 
    Love Irresistibly by Julie James - I didn't think it could be done but Julie James did it. She topped her Love Irresistibly, I was chanting "this book perfect".
    other 5 novels. The entire time I was reading
    Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare - This series is just GREAT.  No second book syndrome with this book. It was even better than Clockwork Angel. This is a must read series.
    Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers - This book gave me ALL. THE. FEELS. I dare say it's better than Grave Mercy and I LOVED Grave Mercy so I don't say that lightly! It's official-- Robin LaFevers is a fantastic writer.

    Sharon's April favorites:
    So many! April was a GREAT book month. I LOVED experiencing the Fever series. They just got better at the series went on, and loved Jericho and Mac so much it is ridiculous. Love Irresistibly was fantastic! I will have to read both it and About That Night again to see which I love more! I also very much enjoyed Once Upon a Tower by Eloisa James. And, of course, freaking INDIGO SPELL made my life in a thousand ways. ♥
