It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a wonderful place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be, reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! Everyone is welcome. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn over at The Book Date.
We have a Bank Holiday weekend in the UK (that means we have Monday off work – well I have the whole week as it’s half term too) and for once the weather is warm and sunny. The heat has encouraged the flowers to start blooming – or producing buds at least!
Nipper is so exhausted by the sudden appearance of the sun he is having to relax inside.
Read This Month
I read a total of 18 books in May, one of them hasn’t had the cover released yet, so I wasn’t able to include it here. The vast majority were arc books, many of which I went on to purchase or had already pre-order. One was a DNF/skim read, some were great, others not so good and two were TBR reads, so that’s more crossed off the list.
The Menopause Manifesto will pop my non-fiction cherry, at least in terms of being the first non-fiction book I’ve read for pleasure rather than for University or work.
Shadow Lands HAS to be on the list as this is the best Fantasy series I’ve read in a long time.
OK, so these are exactly the same books as last week, but that’s because of a couple of short notice arcs and also a beta read.
That’s my week, how was yours?
Happy reading, Louise x
