It’s that time again! It’s the monthly wrap up. This month has been absolutely crazy, the first half of it was almost redolent with heat and the rest of it has sped by and I am still reeling from it. I don’t think I managed to read a lot this month solely because I got a new job and I work full time so there was literally no time to just keep reading the books I wanted to read.
No worries though! The first half of the month pretty bore all the weight, I guess. I might have had my life upended because of a brand new job and suddenly not having tons of time to read but I think this could prove to be awesome too! I have ordered a subscription box, I am hoping it will arrive soon! Don’t you hate waiting for book mail to come to you? I do. I check everyday whether it’s been shipped or not. (It hasn’t, yet.)
So, let’s just get into it!!!

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows

The Mozart Question by Michael Morpurgo, Michael Foreman
This little book tore me apart, I cried during it and even after. However, it is worth a read, its illustrations are beautiful and the author writes in such a way that makes everything look effortless. This book has a separate review post and you can just click here to read it.
This month hasn’t been super happening in terms of the number of books I read but trust me, the quality of the books more than made up for it. There are some books that will live with you forever and I read such books this month. Now, I am currently reading ‘All The Light We Cannot See’ by Anthony Doerr which will hopefully be done soon!
I expect May to be extremely busy and I might have even less books read at the end of it but I will try my best to read at least a few. So, be on the lookout for that at the end of May. Last month, I told you guys that I read books which weren’t close to their publishing dates, well, one of them is done and the next one is coming up soon so I will be posting the reviews for that this Wednesday. So, be on the lookout.
Till the next time, arrivederci!!
