If we were living in the old normal, this would have been a fairly regular looking month if you just looked at the figures, but of course we’re still in this strange new world and there were definite peaks and troughs in my reading mood and experience. As we had towards the midpoint in the year, I’m behind schedule with my efforts to work my way through the to-read bookshelf and with my attempts to catch up with my NetGalley backlog. I’m trying not to beat myself up about it, because a lot of now is about being kinds to yourself, but I am going to try and focus my efforts a little bit more in June to see what I can do. In blog terms May was another busy month – there’s a list of all the posts I’ve made in yesterday’s mini reviews – I don’t know what has brought on this surge of creativity, or how long it’s going to last, but hey, it’s been two months now so that’s something right?!

Bonus picture: A fairly typical view from the hammock, where a lot of the reading of books from the tbr shelf has happened this month. I suspect I should probably be doig something to make that hedge in a better shape, but I have no idea about gardening and my parents haven’t been allowed over to supervise me and tell me what to do
