Hello Bookworms! Despite the unrelenting insanity going on in the world around us, I hope that you are all well, and finding some solace in the fictional worlds of your favourite books, whether they be Fantasy, Science Fiction, Contemporary, or something else entirely. 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 photography and painting!
Another big change to my life 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! Initially, I managed to balance my time between work and “play” (so to speak) relatively well, but as the weeks wear on, I find Distance Learning engulfing more and more of my time – so much so that I have almost completely ceased doing much beyond teaching and preparing to teach. It has been exhausting, to say the least, yet rewarding – as teaching always is.
So what will I be reading in June 2020?
While I didn’t get as much reading done as I had hoped to during the month of May, I am still slowly working my way through my quickly dwindling To Be Read Box, and the books that I did manage to find the time to read were superb – such as Scythe by Neal Shusterman, and The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins. This month, I hope to finish to neglected books still languishing in my To Be Read Box, and tackle to exciting new releases as well! That being said, I really do have to catch up on my book reviews as well!
