May 2022 Reading Recap

I have to be honest – May was a rough month for me. You probably noticed a lack of posts this month. It wasn’t for lack of trying, but my work was insane this month, the world felt like a dumpster fire and I was mentally and physically exhausted so I took a bit of a step back from reviewing to prioritize myself.

While I don’t regret that decision, it definitely sucks that I wasn’t able to be as active with reviews and reading this month.

All this to say, May was not a good reading month for me. I only read six books this month – and that was a struggle. I’ve fallen slightly behind on my reading goals for the year, but I have no doubt I’ll catch up over the summer.

Here’s what I read this month:

MY REVIEW

CW: Emotional abuse; parental abandonment; cheating; pregnancy

If there is one thing I can count on from Vivienne Lorret, it’s that her books will be fun. How to Steal a Scoundrel’s Heart is no exception. I liked this one – but wow, did it go in a direction I did not expect towards the end. Vivienne Lorret kept me on my toes with what would happen with Leo and Prue’s relationship on their journey towards a happily ever after.

June 2021 Recap

I cannot believe June has come and gone. Does this year feel like it is flying by for anyone else, or is it just me?

Since we just passed the midpoint of the year, I thought I’d start with a quick check in on how I’m tracking against my reading goal for the year. This year, my goal is to read 100 books. So far, it looks like I’m track to meet that as I closed out June with my 54th book of the year. According to Goodreads (if we’re not friends, come add me!), that puts me about 5 books ahead.

Now let’s dive into the June recap!

MY REVIEW

I went into this book without reading the synopsis and had no idea what to expect in terms of the plot. I’m so glad about that as I found this story delightful and unexpected. I had read the first book in the series, Lord Holt Takes a Bride, and while I enjoyed it, it didn’t wow me. With My Kind of Earl, I had a smile on my face the whole time and couldn’t wait to see what happened next.

June TBR List

Happy June! Hard to believe summer is almost here!

I don’t think I’ve ever posted a TBR list before on my blog. I’m more of a mood reader than anything else, but I’ve been trying to pull together a TBR each month to give myself a little structure. I definitely don’t stick to it all the time though.

For June though I have high hopes of reading all of the books on my TBR! First off, half of them are part of the “But Do They Bang?” readalong of Tessa Dare’s books. Am I ever going to get tired of saying the name of that readalong? No. I have a library book, an ARC and a new release on here as well that I’m feeling confident about as well.

Here’s what’s on my TBR this month:
