Reading Round-Up: May/June 2019


Can you believe that we're over halfway through the year now? It doesn't seem possible, but here we are!

Over the last few months, I've been trying my best to dedicate more time to reading in an attempt to try and make my tottering tbr pile a little more manageable. So, how did I do? Keep on reading to find out!

  1. Wow, you get through a lot of books! I feel good if I can get through 2 or three a month. Sometimes I don't even manage that. I read the first book of A Discovery of Witches and found it a little hard going and I've not read the other two yet. However, I did watch the first series and Loved it...I'm desperate for the second series on tv but can't bring myself to read the book first. I've just finished 'Normal People' By Sally Rooney and I'm now reading 'The Bone Clocks' By David Mitchell.

    1. Ooh The Bone Clocks is on my tbr - let me know what you think of it?

  2. that's a lot of books read, quite an achievement, when I set my mind to it I can read a book in a day, but it's not often

    1. Same here, but all too often life gets in the way!
