I feel like I change the formatting of how I do posts like this every time I do one of these. I’m try to find the cleanest and most effective way of getting my point across. Oh well! I hope you enjoy the things I consumed this month.

It was a good month! I haven’t been blown away from ARC’s lately, which is a little disappointing, but then I come across diamonds in the rough like Somewhere Only We Know and Don’t Date Rosa Santos. I was really excited to get some mental health books read for Mental Health Awareness Month, so I brought some oldies that I’ve been wanting to read for a really long time. Both Starfish and Made You Up definitely exceeded my expectations and were a highlight to my reading this month.
My favorite show of the spring ended this month. over the span of five decades, it follows the career and tumultuous relationship between entertainers Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon. Starring Michelle Williams and Sam Rockwell (one of my all time favorites) and created/executive produced by the ‘Hamilton Crew’, I have been so excited for this project from the beginning. Most people know who Bob Fosse was but few knew Gwen Verdon—a magnificent Broadway Star in the 50’s and 60’s, and Fosse most trusted partner. This incredible show gives an inside look into their rollercoaster relationship and how they changed entertainment forever.
