Monthly Wrap-Up: May 2021

Hi everyone and welcome back! It’s been a really long time since I did a wrap-up post, but so much went on in May that it seemed like a great time to re-start!

I honestly can’t believe how quickly this month went by… it seems only yesterday that it was full on winter and now summer is already nearly here. I personally love the warm weather, so I’m only too happy about it!

Of course the biggest May news is that this blog received a massive revamp and moved here on WordPress from Blogger. When I started Book for Thought all the way back in 2014, I did it with no real knowledge or understanding of how blogs worked – and it showed. Now, while I’m still learning every day, I certainly have a much better grasp of what I want and need for my tiny corner of the internet, and it had become really obvious that I had outgrown Blogger. I’m really pleased with how the move went so far, and I look forward to many more years here on WordPress!

And now, on to the books!

What I added to my shelves…

May was a great month for books, though my (already massive) TBR pile is less than pleased and glaring at me from the corner. Or at least, it would if TBRs could glare…

For Review

Thanks to all the publishers and NetGalley for the digital review copies! Link in title takes you to Goodreads.


What I read…

Reading-wise, May was good but not great. Link in title takes you to my full review.

What I’m reading…

Currently reading Invisible Women before it’s due back at the library. I’m finding it very informative and so interesting so far, even though I am getting increasingly more frustrated with society with every page I read.

I’m also close to finishing For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten, which releases this week. I’m getting definite Uprooted vibes from this: there’s a creepy wood, a tall, dark and brooding hero and a headstrong, independent heroine. So far, everything’s lining up for this to be one of my favourites this year, but we’ll see when I reach the end!

That’s it from me for this month! I’m linking in with Stacking the Shelves a cool meme hosted by Reading Reality which is all about the books we’re adding to our shelves, whether physical or virtual.

How was May for you? What books did you add to your shelves? And did you read some of mine?
Tell me all in the comments!
