Month in Review

Happy Friday! I hope you are all ready for the weekend. I know I am! So, let’s talk about how the month went.

I read some really good books this month and some that didn’t work. Two five star reads for me were Radium Girls by Kate Moore and May God Forgive by Alan Parks. I really enjoyed Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal and When the Stars Go Dark by Paula McLain. I appreciated the poetry collection of The Wild Iris by Louise Glück even if I didn’t really connect with it. Finally, I was very disappointed with Community Board by Tara Conklin.

As usual I’m carrying over a couple of books into July. Last month I also mentioned I was taking part in Cathy’s 10 Books of Summer reading project. I did start Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson and thought I would have it finished by now but it’s a bit slow going. Not in a bad way as I do like the descriptions of the scenery and weather elements but it’s not a fast read. I want to focus a bit on this  reading project as I’d really like to whittle down those 10 books I chose to read which have been sitting on my shelves for years.

July will be a hectic work month for me as I have a couple of additional work projects but it’s some exciting stuff. Or perhaps I’m just excited because I may actually have a vacation planned for the end of the month!! More on that to come.

So that’s a bit about things around here. I wish you all a wonderful weekend and I hope you read some great books!
