Despite feeling like Six of Crows took forever to get through, I actually had a really great reading month in May, with a total of seven books. That being said, I didn’t rate any of them above 3.5 stars, but that’s not to say that I didn’t find them enjoyable and engaging.

I have a YouTube channel where I promote Australian books using the hashtag #AusReads, and also indulge my compulsion for signing up to readathons. Here are the latest videos:
FAVOURITE BOOKISH PHOTO:
I struggled with Six of Crows a bit, and I have to admit it didn’t quite live up to the hype for me. But it was good to discuss thoughts with other readers in the comments on this photo. That’s why I love the bookish communities on various social media platforms so much.
You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.
Physical book: Spellslinger by Sebastien de Castell. A friend loaned this to me months ago, and I’m finally sitting down with it. I think it’s going to be a fun, quirky YA fantasy.
Ebook: Nothing at the moment.
Audio book: Butter Witch by Tess Lake. While the title is a bit unfortunate (the events of the story involve a butter sculpting competition), so far this is quite entertaining. A friend and I spotted it together and both bought it. We’re planning to read it this week and then get together to talk about it.
PLANNING TO READ NEXT:
I’ve got Reluctantly Charmed by Ellie O’Neill out from the library. I’m hoping I will be charmed by this one. I’m not sure whether there are actual fairies involved or whether it’s more the suggestion of them, but either way, I’m here for Irish folklore in the modern day.
What are you reading? 🙂
