May was a month of beginning to get back to normal for us. I had my vaccine early in the month and it feels so good to have had it. I wasn’t very well for a little while after it but I’m still so glad I had it done. Then at the weekend my husband started back at work after fifteen months off. It’s an anxious time him being back at work but it’s good to have more of a normal routine again. We also spent time with my husband’s mum in her lovely garden in the sunshine so that was fabulous. I’m struggling with life getting back to normal but it feels good to be taking these steps.
I’ve had a good reading month and have finished eighteen books in May. I feel like I would have read more but we started watching The Sopranos (the first time either of us has ever watched it…) and it’s taking over our lives. We’ve been watching for around three weeks and are on season five. I’m kind of dreading it being over as I’m enjoying it so much.
I’m still predominantly reading one book at a time and this is really working for me. I can’t remember a time in my life when I’ve ever read like this before but it’s good to have a change. I’ve mainly reading books from NetGalley or books I’ve been sent for review so that I can catch up but from June onwards I’ll be adding in my 20 Books of Summer as well. I’m looking forward to challenging myself to read 20 print books from my bookcase.
Here are the books I read in May…
You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen
Luster by Raven Leilani
Five Strangers by E. V. Adamson
The Lamplighters by Emma Stonex
One Last Time by Helga Flatland
The Murder of Graham Catton by Katie Lowe
This Lovely City by Louise Hare
