Hello and welcome to another monthly overview! Another month come and gone (well almost, anyway), another busy month, including reading and reviewing for next month’s blog tours. I have managed to say NO a bit more often, so I’m on fewer tours in the coming months and I’m looking forward to having fewer obligations and to reading whatever the hell I want whenever the hell I want ?
Here’s what I’ve done this month, and some of what I’ll be posting next month:
What I read (full novels):
The Butcher’s Daughter, Jane E. James (review on the blog blitz next month)

This month I also stacked my shelves with the contents of my second Fairyloot box, I shared some music on the Mondays (Long Road to Ruin, One of Us, Tainted Love, Bohemian Rhapsody), I shared an excerpt of Hungry Moon by Ramsey Campbell and I put Kelley Armstrong’s Rockton series in the spotlight.
Wow! Every month I make this list I’m astonished! I probably read less than some of you, but I’m rather proud of myself, and I’m even prouder when I look at everything I’ve posted (not so much in terms of the quality of the reviews, more the fact that I’ve actually written reviews and people have actually read them). I’m really enjoying this blogging shenanigans! As for a book of the month… I’ve read so many great ones in so many genres, I can’t bring myself to choose. Hope you’ve had a good month too and here’s to a new month of happy reading!
Wow what a month you have had!!! So many awesome books!!!! ❤️
Thank you, Zoé, yup not bad at all ?
You put many of us to shame when I see your list! And soooo many interesting titles I still want to read! Thanks for the spotlight on the Rockton series too, wonderful to discover a new series that sounds amazing! Happy reading in May!
Thanks Inge, but no shame, this is a shame-free zone ? Happy reading, lovely.
Looks like a brilliant month!
Thanks Nicki, it was ?
Such a great list of books read, Kelly! You almost make me jealous that I don’t take part in blog tours 🙂 🙂 I have loved following your blog posts, too.
Thanks so much Stephen! Blog tours, yeah, I love partaking in them, but they do add stress, especially when you have to wait ages for the book to arrive.
You can definitely be proud of yourself! I love your posts, and you’ve been reading loads! 🙂
Aww merci chérie ??
Looks like you had a wonderful month! So many excellent titles… Here’s to a fantastic May! xx
