I like May, it’s the start of summer in Ireland so it always feels a little more warm and cheery. In May I headed out a little more for longer walks and getting some fresh air in the parks and walking paths around my house. Of course, I brought plenty of audiobooks with me.
So, with more time outside the house, and fewer books open, was there still time for reading?
One of my favourite things about March is the Irish Readathon. It’s a month long readathon giving me the chance – nay, the EXCUSE – to focus on Irish authors and Irish books. You can guarantee I took that opportunity with both hands.
I also hosted the NSFWathon throughout March, and fitting books into the prompts for both readathons was a little easier than I expected it to be. But, I was plagued by a strong reading slump at the start of the month – could I overcome it?
Now winter is over, and we’re also past the surprise winter 2.0 from a couple of weeks ago, it’s time to talk about those books I had intended to read in the colder months.
I’ve started to make seasonal TBRs for myself, setting out a couple of books I really want to get to in those three months. I had some success with the ones I set in summer and in autumn, but I really went all guns blazing for my winter choices.
I had seven books on that TBR, but did I tick all of them off?
