May Wrap Up | 2023

May was a bit of a slower reading month for me, however I did manage to finish 11 books.  To be honest, my mind was just all over the place between planning for summer and trying to adjust to a healthier lifestyle in relation to food and exercise.  All good things, just entirely distracted! Thankfully I found some new favorites this month, and I ended up DNF’ing one of the books that’s been on my TBR the longest… sorry Joe Abercrombie! Since I’m just getting back into the swing of blogging, my reviewed and blogged sections are on the shorter side this month.  But I’ve already written double the amount of reviews for June so that’s exciting!

Most Liked Photo(s)

When I drafted my May wrap up, this photo of Andrew and I was my most liked photo but at the time of posting, the last photo I posed in May, a photo of the new Sarah J Maas covers overtook us for most liked.  But since I love the one of Andrew and I decided to include it here anyway since I make the rules :-)

  1. I’ve read so many mixed reviews about Meet Me at the Lake. The cover looks cute but I’m a bit hesitant now 😬
