May was quite a busy month with the end of the university semester and final grades etc. etc. but most of my work responsibilities are now complete and I have time to reset and chill out. Reading for May rather reflected the work load in some ways, but it was still fun to do.
Reads for May included the following:
- The Bean Trees – Barbara Kingsolver (F)
- Rebecca – Daphne du Maurier (F)
- Majesty: Elizabeth II and the House of Windsor – Robert Lacey (NF/bio)
- 100 Great Artists: A Visual Journey from Fra Angelico to Andy Warhol – Charlotte Gerlings (NF/art history)
- As We Are Now – May Sarton (F)
- Gentlemen Prefer Blondes – Anita Loos (F)
There is a distinct lack of blog posts related to these reads, but that is not a reflection of the quality – only of my available time and energy!
I enjoyed these reads, two of which were rereads (the Kingsolver and the du Maurier) – unusual for me. I’m not typically a big rereader but I wanted a few reads that were pretty straightforward and that I had enjoyed in the past. Both of these met those goals so that was nice.
June reading goals: more of the same really. Stay focused on the current TBR pile and pick up the focus on POC authors and topics again. (Rather fell off that in the previous month.) Onward and upward!
