Well, I took an unintentional, but much enjoyed break from blogging over Spring Break, but now I'm back with lots of post ideas! I'm officially half way through my semester, and after the semester is over I'm going on vacation and then it's summer break! The weather is nicer, the sun is out, so I'm in a pretty good mood! Reading wise, things have still been a lot slower than I want them to be, but I did read and LOVE I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson since my last wrap-up. I will be reviewing that next week so keep your eyes peeled. I'm hoping to get a reread in before the end of the month, but I'm not sure which one from my Classics and Rereads for 2015 List I want to pick up.
What I Loved:
Movie: Over Break I watched Kingsmen: The Secret Service and I really enjoyed it! I mainly wanted to see this one because Colin Firth was in it, and I will watch anything with his beautiful face in it. I loved how British it was and anything with Firth in it is oozing Britshness!
Music: My brother got me hooked on synth-pop, which I never would have thought I would be obsessed with, but I am. I'm loving Lazerhawk and Miami Nights 1984 right now.
What I Bought:
It's been a while since I have done a wrap-up, so this section is going to be a little messy. I've got a birthday gift from my family, a few things I bought myself for my birthday, and a random used bookstore purchase.

My Last Wrap-up
Like I mentioned before, I will be reviewing I'll Give You the Sun and as usual I will be participating in Top Ten Tuesday. Beyond that I am unsure as usual.
