April was a lot of fun for me. I got to finally have Spring Break, my library hosted a book sale, Starbucks released a Unicorn Drink that is disgusting and Easter came around. Though I didn’t do much, I did get to watching some movies and reading some books. May is coming up, if we like it or not, and we might as well spend the day reflecting on April. Today is that day and I’m going to be wrapping up the month for you.

Pretty Little Liars – Season 7b
The final ten episodes have started and I can’t stop obsessing over how awesome this show is! I have been waiting for this show since about January so I am so happy that I am watching it. I need to know who A.D. is because I saw somewhere that a certain character was A.D. and it sort of made sense but I don’t know. Then we have the whole Spencer and Toby situation. We have the board game and I just need to know who was behind the whole thing. I really need to. I just can’t believe that this show is going to be ending soon!
Quantico – Season 2
I can’t believe that I am talking about this show, again. It’s like the third month in a row but who really cares. Quantico has all my feels burning while I was watching the past few episodes. But yet, why can’t Ryan and Alex still have their special moment? I seriously need to get these two in the same room and making some magic. Plus, I miss watching them together. But Caleb is now officially back and who knows what is currently going on with what’s her face name. That tells you how much I like her (the one that currently has Ryan wrapped around her finger that has some secrets).
Imaginary Mary – Season 1
Yet again, another TV Show but it isn’t one I have talked about! I kept seeing this ad for this show Imaginary Mary and I needed to know if it was any good. Oh. My. God. It was amazing. It follows this very professional women named Alice who is dating a man with three kids. Alice’s imaginary friend from her childhood Mary is back and is helping Alice with these kids. I find this show hilarious and there is always something new to learn about all the characters. It is so relatable and it is something that I never thought about it. Plus, watching this adult talk to basically nothing in the middle of public is hilarious. I would die of laughter if I saw someone in their car, dancing like a mad woman, while she is looking in her passenger seat. Plus, Mary is adorable.
Overall, I would say I had a good month. I read 7 books and watched 4 movies. I’m ahead on my Goodreads challenge by like 7 books and it makes me really happy because May might be a really busy month!
