Monthly Wrap Up

The month that was… May 2021

What a month! I’m sure it was May, and yet the weather has been decidedly mixed this month, with more frost than I’m used to at this time of year. It’s been a good month despite this, and I managed to get away for a few days to go camping. Of course, my timing was atrocious, and I went to Dartmoor the weekend before the lovely bank holiday weather. It was nice to get away though, and to be honest, once the tent is up I don’t think it matters too much. And it gave me time to read books and drink wine, so overall it was a pleasant experience and it was nice to get away and relax and recharge for a few days.

This does mean it’s been a relatively quiet month on the blog, although I managed to post reviews for eight books alongside a couple of additional posts. It was also my blog’s six year anniversary this month, and while I would usually do something to mark the occasion, I wasn’t that organised this year. I might do a giveaway on Twitter later this week, but I make no promises! 😀

Just one book for review this month:

And the books I bought (don’t judge me!):


TBR Watch

Ummm…

  • Books out = 11 read + 0 DNF* = 11
  • Books in = 1 ARC + 14 purchases = 15
  • Equals an increase of 4 in my TBR

*Unusual, but it has felt like a good reading month.
