This week went by rather quickly. Between work and blogging and reading - I barely slept. That's okay though, I'm use to that by now after three years of university procrastination development! I did get a chance to watch one of my favourite movies this week- Only Lovers Left Alive. It stars Tilda Swinton and tom Hiddleston and is a loose modern interpretation of Adam and Eve as vampires. The soundtrack is beautiful and the cinematography is dark and grungy. Great vibes and mood set with Tilda and Tom! I definitely recommend checking it out if you're in the mood for a dark and twisty romance!

As the month of May rolls in, I begin my #monthofmaybookchallenge over on instagram. Again I am so amazed by the support and love of the book blogging community across all platforms (Blogger, Instagram, Wordpress, Bloglovin' etc.). If you don't do the whole Instagram thing fair enough I'll post some of the challenge photos here for you lovely lot!
Day 1 : May TBR
Day 2 : Book & Glasses
Day 3 : New Books
The two books pictured on Day 3 of my #monthofmaybookchallenge are the newest additions to my bookshelf and boy are the covers pretty! The first one pictured is Finding Paris By Joy Preble. Based off the synopsis on the cover sleeve, it seems to be about a pair of sisters who set out on an adventure to have fun but one of them ditches the other making the one sister set out on a journey to find her. All the while learning about herself. It sounds extremely interesting and so now it has been added to my ever growing TBR pile of books!
The second book is How to Be Bad By E. Lockhart, Sarah Mlynowski and Lauren Myracle. These three authors have written other great teen novels and so I was super excited to stumble upon this read! I believe this is a new cover of the original book - not a new book in general. The sounds of this one are three friends who seem to be stuck in their hometowns dealing with boy problems, school problems and family ones. Together they set out on a drive with no destination in mind and no clue what their goal is but ultimately, each one of them will find answers they never knew they were searching for.
Both of these books sound like great summer reads for me and I cannot wait to read them!
Question for you guys out there: What are some of your favourite movies? Any recommendations?
