    May ’20 wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! 2020 has been a time. One of my friends was joking that she and her sister are going to make a tour band style t-shirt for 2020, but instead of concerts, it’s just going to be all the shit that is going on in the world this year against each month. I imagine it’s going to look something like this: January | Bushfires February | Floods March | Global pandemic April | Isolation May | Murder hornets

    June ’20 TBR

    Good morning bookworms! Look, I’ll be honest. I don’t even know HOW we are at the end of May already. There’s clearly some faulty timer or something else gone wrong with 2020, you know, as well as all the other stuff that’s gone wrong with this year… Anyway, separate from my big monthly wrap up that’s coming sometime next week, I’d just like to announce that I read TWO books on the May TBR – and that’s pretty good for me!! 😂 It’s basically a victory, so let’s see if…

    May ’20 TBR

    Good morning bookworms! How are we already a third of the way through the year? I feel like 2020 has taken about 39 seconds, but also 6 years. I have aged 13 years since being at home. All. The. TIME. However, I can’t shouldn’t complain too much, because I know I am fortunate to still have a job – I think I would just like to take a few days off from said job and lie on the couch and read a book. Or make my new home office feel…
