The end of another month has come – so all sorts of goodies coming up here to wrap up my reading from April.

Loads of good stuff last week though, so I have a lot I want to tell you about once I get my act in gear!

Bonus photo: This week’s bonus post is a rare horticultural success for me. This is our peace lily, which my mum says is now so big it needs splitting. This is a miracle as usually plants only last for a matter of weeks in my house. I currently have four plants alive – a record – and I attribute it all to the fact that I’m home all the time so remember to water them!

A happy and large peace lily

  1. What a fantastic list you have ! I love the variety of genres. Thanks for sharing. My May TBR pile is already getting to be quite daunting but my first book is out of the way and I absolutely loved it. Thought you and your readers might enjoy it too. It’s called “Lucky King” by Bruce Henderson and the book asks – “What if the fortunes in fortune cookies came true?” Such a cool concept! I also enjoyed how it was written in that it’s from multiple character’s perspectives including the Lucky King himself (he writes the fortunes that predict the future!). The book feels super realistic yet it has some really unique supernatural elements to it. Overly conservative and shit stirrer DJ Jack DuVal lives a life of luxury and without consequence until he decides to get Chinese and reads his fortune – “YOU WILL LOSE WHAT YOU TREASURE MOST” This book is full of exciting twists and turns and I can’t recommend it enough. Happy reading! Maybe this can make it on June’s TBR list! Here is the website in case you want to check it out –
