May literally went in such a blur. Then again, I am certain my mind is still caught back in about March – where is this year going?
I’ve had some great reads pop up over the last month! It has got to the point that I have so many books that I want to either read or re-read that I have drawn myself up a list as to what I am going to read in what order.
I’m mainly doing this for non-reviewing books, because the publication dates helps me decide what makes it onto the blog. But I am currently (still) re-reading Harry Potter and have an ever-growing pile from a friend.
I was getting to the point where I was only reading books for reviewing purposes. Then I realised that I have the entire Infernal Devices and Mortal Instruments series sitting under my bed that I haven’t yet read since I owned them, just because they didn’t need a review.
I didn’t like that feeling, so now have myself a little system. I’m not sure if it will work or not, but as long as I am reading, does it really matter?
June is a month of changes for me; uni isn’t so constant and job hunting is heating up. It does literally sound like I am repeating myself from about two years ago, but there we go!
What do I have coming up this month in regards to reviews?
Books: In The Shadow of the Hanging Tree was published earlier this week. I hope you all enjoyed the review as much as I enjoyed the book – I felt it was a very powerful tale.
The Things we Thought we Knew by Mahsuda Snaith arrived through the post after I fell in love with the cover. I hope the story is going to be as gorgeous as the cover! I think it is going to be an interesting read if nothing else.
Borne by Jeff Vandermeer is another one that drew my attention because of the bright cover. It also sounds really intriguing and definitely `other-wordly`. I’m hoping its good and doesn’t go too far with the strangeness – I don’t want to get lost!
They Are Trying to Break Your Heart by David Savill has been on my Netgalley list for nearly a year now; I think it is time I get it read! It sounds like it could be a heartbreaker, mind you!
Films: Carrying on my habit of being late seeing things, I thought I would finally give The Night Manager a go after hearing such amazing things about it. I hope it’s as good as the hype!
Moana and Sully are both films that I have heard a lot about over the last few weeks. If that isn’t an invitation to give them a watch, I don’t know what is.
I’m hoping Fantastic Beasts will arrive, as I am eager to see that. Fingers crossed!
There’s my month! How about you?
