Things are still a bit crazy in the world, aren’t they? The UK has completed two full months of lockdown, and restrictions are starting to be relaxed. I have to admit that I think it’s too soon, and I’ll still be cautious as I’m wary of a second wave. We’ll see – I hope I’m being overly cautious…
May was much improved from a blogging perspective at least, and I think I’ve got my mojo back! 😎 I posted eight reviews, of which the stand out reads for me were:
- Tender is the Flesh by Agustina Bazterrica
- The Waiting Rooms by Eve Smith
- The Secrets of Strangers by Charity Norman
I also reviewed:
- Goldilocks by Laura Lam
- The Warehouse by Rob Hart
- The Viral Storm by Nathan Wolfe
- The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman
- The Mist by Ragnar Jónasson
I also posted A Love Letter to Hay Festival, in which I got a little sentimental about missing one of my favourite bookish events of the year. I have to commend the organisers on a magnificent digital festival though – it was superb, and almost as good as being there. May also saw my fifth blogiversary – which I’m still a little astounded by – and I posted my planned reads for this year’s 20 Books of Summer.
My TBR pile is coming down nicely, which would be more impressive if it hadn’t increased in recent months. I now have exactly the same number of unread books as I did at the start of the year… 😕 Still, I have almost read all of my books purchased prior to this year!
