This was a strange reading month for me because after my hysterectomy, I didn’t do any reading for two weeks. I simply was too tired and unfocused to read. You’d think that recovery would mean I would be reading more (after all, I have done very little driving or leaving of my house), but it didn’t happen that way. I wasn’t really surprised, as I didn’t read at all after my breast reduction, which was a five-week recovery. However, after two weeks, I began reading feverishly and finished three books in a week. So I am still on track for my reading goal of 60 books for the year, despite the hiatus.
I also focused on reading books from my shelves. With spending so much time in my bed, I have been staring at my very full bookshelf of books I haven’t read. I was reminded that have curated a great collection of books, as I am a stickler about buying well-reviewed, 5-star books. My collection didn’t disappoint. BONUS FOR YOU: me reading older books means they are cheaper on Amazon and easier to get at the library.
Below is what I read in May. For real time bookish talk, follow my @BookSnobbery Instagram account.
