May was another weird month of reading for me.

That said, I still managed to squeeze 5 books in:
1. Pretty Little Wife
2. Girls of Brackenhill
3. Beartown
4. The Midnight Library
5. Tell Me Lies

Let’s get into the reviews…

What I read: February 2021

What I read: February 2021

February was a weird month for me. I feel like I hit a pandemic wall and struggled to find books that could keep my interest. I had two books I started but didn’t finish, which is highly unusual for me! I usually try to tough it out unless a book is really, really bad.

That said, I did still manage to read five books, including what might be one of my favorite fiction books for the entire year! (Yes, I know it’s only the beginning of March.. but I feel pretty strongly about this.)

Without further ado, let’s get to it.

What I read: November 2020

November was definitely an interesting month of reading for me! I switched gears and read more non-fiction/memoirs this month and also re-discovered my love of audiobooks. There’s truly nothing better than taking a long walk and losing yourself in a good story.

What I read: July 2020

I thought June was an incredible month of reading for me, but in July I topped my personal record and read 10 books! (Please, don’t expect this from me in the future). I definitely filled my quota for fun beach reads and can cross that off my 2020 Summer Bucket List.
