May 2020 | Wrap-Up

Hey Everyone! May is over, which means that it is time to give you a bit of an update on my reading progress! These past few months have been hard on me and incredibly hard on the world. Cal is doing well. He’s as hyper as ever and is acting like he didn’t have major surgery last month.

As you all know, I’ve been pretty quiet here. I truly appreciate you all staying here and reading my posts. I’m hoping that June will reinvigorate me, and I will start to be more active on my blog.

  1. Awesome reading month well done!!! A great variety of books. I’ve never heard of any of them before but I’m about to go research them!!! Xxx

  2. I love that you list the hours wasted on DNFs. It really is infuriating, isn’t it? 😭 On the other hand, I like to think those hours at least provide me with fun ice breakers for my next date (“So, I read this really awful book the other day…”). Now that I think of it, I could use this as a test. If my date loved the book but is still willing to date me (and vice versa), I may have found my soulmate! 😄
