Monthly Recap: May 2017


Happy June, book lovers! I had a good May - managed to get quite a bit accomplished, spent a lot of time with my family, and read some great books. We're having wild weather here - drastically fluctuating temperatures, a ton of rain and a lot of flooding, and weather that changes from minute to minute, but I guess that's Spring for you! Everything looks beautiful at least, reminding me why Spring is my favourite season next to Autumn.

What I Read in May:
  • Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy
  • A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
  • Chateau of Happily Ever Afters by Jaimie Admans
  • It's Not Like it's a Secret by Misa Sugiura
  • Love and Blarney by Zara Keane
  • Macy McMillan and the Rainbow Goddess by Shari Green
  • Dust and Shadow by Lyndsay Faye
  • With Malice by Eileen Cook
  • Racing the Sun by Karina Halle
  • Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

On the Blog:
  • I talked about Mental Health Awareness Month, shared my experience writing about a character with anxiety, and shared a few recommendations for my favourite books that deal with mental illness

I've also been posting more on my personal Instagram feed. We're having such a beautiful spring, it's making my feed look rather artsy, haha.

The end of May also marked the end of the latest Bookish Bingo season. I tried really hard to fill as many squares as I could these last three months and amazed myself that I was able to get 4 Bingos! *happy dance*



So, that was my month. How was yours? How many books did you read? Do you have a favourite? Do you have a blog post you wish got more attention in May? Feel free to leave a link in the comments. Also, if you did a wrap-up post, be sure to leave that link too so I can visit you!
