Well Bookworms, this month has certainly been a month to remember. With much of our daily lives changed for the foreseeable future, I have found myself struggling to commit to reading – or to anything really. Instead I have been spending time exploring some of my other hobbies, including gardening and painting! Another big change in April was the launch of Distance Learning for public schools here in Ontario, which was both a welcome challenge, and a huge learning curve. Teaching Kindergarten online is not something that I ever imagined I would be doing – and yet here I am!
While I didn’t get as much reading done as I had hoped to this month, I did finish The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon! This is hugely exciting, because The Priory of the Orange Tree had been sitting in my to be read box since June 2019. Some other books that I read include The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi, The Silvered Serpents (ARC) by Roshani Chokshi, The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, and Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. That being said, I really do have to catch up on my book reviews as well!
To be quite honest though, I have somehow ended up with more books in my To Be Read Box than I had at the beginning of the month (seriously – all the book stores are closed, how did I even manage that?!), so I am hoping to buckle down and get some more reading (and reviewing) done during the month of May! Which I really need to do, since I have already pre-ordered some highly anticipated May releases (The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (A Hunger Games Novel) by Susanne Collins, perhaps?).
So what will I be reading in May 2020?
