In all honesty May has been an exceptionally shit month for me, the whole lockdown/pandemic thing was not really getting to me at all during April and I was in a pretty good place and then there was this major upheaval in my personal life. The worst thing about it is that it has thrown everything off, I was in an amazing reading groove and my creative bug was well and truly fired up, but I have lost all my motivation and enjoyment of the things that were previously helping to make life fun. It’s only been the last week or so that I’ve started to feel any semblance of my normal self but even then I know I’m not in as good a space as I was before, so if your reading this and can spare me a little positive thought I’d appreciate it.
Anyway things still (surprisingly) happened in my little slice of the ether and I am thankfully still on track with my Goodreads challenge, so lets take a look at what has been going on…
A wonderfully gothic fantasy with mysterious monsters and magic, an enigmatic man and some strong female characters, a brilliant recipe in my eyes.
A steamy romance with a darker and more complex storyline than I expected.
A sweet and fun romance with some recipes that I really want to try.
A tense and gripping thriller that really gets inside your head.
A surprising and captivating thriller that had me questioning every character.
I also hosted a cover reveal for The Middle-Aged Virgin in Italy by Olivia Spring.
I featured a submission call for new imprint PM Press.
Another cover reveal this time for Deja Vu by Melody Saleh.
I put together my reading list for the 20 books of summer challenge, as usual I’l probably change it but I’m hoping this year to be a little more successful than previous years.
Hopefully things pick back up again in June and that I can get back into the swing of things properly, because I have some good books on my list to read.
