Let’s talk about books!
I love talking books. I love hearing what other people love to read. While I can’t always be on top of by TBR (to be read) pile, I can dream about what I want to get to next- So here it goes!
Books reading in May:
Ummmm. The same one I was reading back in April! This guy:
It is a nice book- very enjoyable for a fantasy/historically fun fiction type of book. I am actually really liking it, but…It’s been a busy month, and I was under the weather for much of it! May has sort of flown-by, I feel, and if my reading is any indication, I have been pretty overwhelmed by it all! Here’s hoping June fares better!
I have been cooking a ton, so I will share with you one of my favorites that I could buy, but never have, but would totally recommend to anyone who hosts or brings food anywhere. So…I guess that could mean that I recommend it to anyone or everyone. Yes.
Not technically on a nightstand, but I feel that since I have been looking at it for 2 weeks, that I should put it down as a book that I’ve been reading, right?!
Books Listened to in May:
In the Unlikely Event, by Judy Blume
Are you there God? It’s me, Barrie! I missed you Judy Blume! You sort of raised me alongside my parents of course, but I was not alone in adoring her books as a younger version of myself, and I was happy to finally read an adult book by one of my faves. She does not disappoint in this crazy story that she tells, based on the true events of 1952, where 3 planes crashed at the Newark airport within just a few months. While it may seem unlikely…it is. But the story is a wonderful account of the events as seen through many local viewpoints and how it affected their lives. I love when a book shows all kinds of ‘sides to the story’, and the book is set up in this way, introducing the narrator each time by name. Wonderful. Except if you are scared to fly. Then it’s not for you!
What’s lined up ready to finish and then start for June? These guys:
