Month in Review

Time for a monthly recap! I hope you’ve all been doing well and I’m sorry if I’ve been a bit absent around here and blogland.

May has been challenging. I’ve had some work issues that took up a lot of time and energy. My father-in-law has been in and out of the hospital. Then I was hoping to finally have a vacation and my plans fell through.

Still there have been some really good moments. For example, I celebrated my birthday last week so there were a lot of books and cheesecake. I’ll probably have to do two blog posts just on the books I’ve received throughout the month!

My reading was a bit slow but I did finish four books: Nightcrawling by Leila Mottley, The Mountains Wild by Sarah Stewart Taylor, Lost Children Archive by Valeria Luiselli, and Detective Inspector Huss by Helen Torsten.

My favorite by far was Nightcrawling by Leila Mottley. What an impressive debut novel.

Going in to June I’m carrying over a couple of books, one is The Radium Girls by Kate Moore, which is blowing me away! I’m also excited to join in Cathy’s 20 Books of Summer reading project. I’m going for the 10 books challenge and will tell you more about that in my next post. June also happens to be my bloggiversary. Surely that means more books right?

Not only that but I’m also taking a week off starting next week so I cannot wait. I’m so tired and just want to spend some quality time reading and relaxing. Here’s to a great start to the summer. Hope you are all doing well and would love to hear if you’ve got any summer reading plans.
