It is the end of another month stuck at home. How are you doing? How was your May? While everyone around me seems to have found their rhythm at home, I find myself going down the negative thought spiral.

But May has brought some very good things too. I visited my parents and sister (at a safe distance of course) and that brings me so much joy and relaxation. My friends and I also met up and it gave me some much needed energy. I really hope we can do that more often, but at the same time I’m still so worried about the virus that I’m hesitant.

Another good thing is my editing course I started in April. I had to turn in some stories and got feedback and it was SCARY, but so much fun too! I picked the right course and I can’t wait what other assignments I have to do! Who knew school could be fun?! I even submitted one of my stories to a writing contest, which I will be hearing about at the end of June if I won. The prize? A new e-reader (much needed!!) AND your story getting published as an e-book on the Dutch version of Amazon. Fingers crossed!

Because of the course, my reading took a backseat. So let’s dive into those numbers.

May in books

Books I read in May

I thought it would be way worse, but I actually finished six books this month! And I’m still 14 books ahead of schedule for my reading challenge, so I have nothing to worry about 🙂

Books I hauled in May

The library is open again!!! And I was there the second they opened. Actually, that’s not true, but I did go there on the second day they were open and switched my books for some new ones. I also got the app for borrowing e-books from the library, which is not good for the books I bought because now I’m not reading those…

Looking into June

The country is slowly opening again, with schools going open full time and restaurants having the opportunity to open too if they can guarantee a safe distance. I’m not sure how I going to act now. It feels safer, but I know it’s not over yet.

Book wise I am still in the middle of a non-fiction about eco-friendly living and I just started reading The Upside of Unrequited.

Hope you all have a lovely June!

What did you read this month? What are you planning on reading in June?
