This is a bit of a sparse post compared to previous monthly wrap-ups. I was doing a musical, then I got sick, and work has been busy. So not only did I not get much reading done, but I also didn’t do much of anything else (Youtube, #bookstagram…)
Past Month’s Reading:
A bit of a slow reading month this month for a variety of reasons, most of which can be summed up under the umbrella of “life got in the way”. Still, five books is better than no books.
- The Diviners by Libba Bray (YA historical fantasy/horror – 4 stars – review)
- The Matchmaker by Thornton Wilder (playscript/comedy – unrated – not intending to review)
- Get the Girl Out by Lucy Bloom (memoir – 4 stars – review)
- A Summer Escape and Strawberry Cake at the Cosy Kettle (romance – 3.5 stars – review)
- Beau & Bett by Kathryn Berla (YA contemporary – 2.5 stars – review forthcoming)
I have a BookTube Channel where I talk about Australian books. I only got one video posted this month, though I intend to get a bit more on top of it in the coming weeks. Sadly, I didn’t post a single video this month! I really need to get back to that! (I do have two in progress, so you can expect better things come July!)
Favourite Bookish Photo:
Erm… and again, nothing to see here! I posted one photo to Insta all month and it wasn’t bookish.
You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.
Physical book: I am part of the way through The Women In Black by Madeleine St John. This book is considered a bit of a modern classic in Australia, and I am enjoying it so far.
Ebook: I am reading an ARC of Mother Tongue by Julie Mayhew, a YA novel set around the Beslan School Siege in 2004. I have a feeling this one is going to be herat-rending.
Audio book: I am well on the way to finishing Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray, the second in the Diviners series.
Planning to read next:
I’m honestly not sure! Mother Tongue is the last of my ARCs that are due before I got to America in a couple of weeks. Guess I’ll see where the mood takes me!
What are you reading? 🙂
