Hello, I’m back! It feels like forever since I sat down and wrote a blog post but it’s really only been about a week I suppose. Which is actually quite a long time for me to go without visiting this little space. But I’ve been suuuuper busy packing to move, actually moving and then unpacking. There’s still quite a bit to go, there’s a few carloads of junk still at the old place which we need to sort out this week and I also need to arrange my bookshelves and reshelve my books. But apart from that, we are pretty much done with the move and it’s been great so far. Except when we moved in on a Saturday and had no gas connection until Monday (it was supposed to be done Friday) which meant no heating, no hot water and no stovetop for 2 days. And it’s been lovely and cold in Melbourne, so yeah, that was fun. Watching TV at night time under 2 quilts because the house was about 10 degrees! But everything is all sorted now.

May was still a pretty decent reading month, despite everything that went on. I managed 15 books. I don’t think I read a book after the 26th May, just had far too much to do. And my books were all in massive piles anyway. Thankfully I was super organised with my blog tour post for the wonderful Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett. I got that read early and my review scheduled so it was all ready to go to kick off the tour on the 1st June. If you haven’t checked that review out (and there’s an Aussie only giveaway of a signed copy!) then definitely go have a look over here.

And so it is June. Here’s my pile of books:


It’s quite large, isn’t it? I am not sure if I’ll make it through all of them this month but I’ll try! I’m particularly looking forward to The Kiss Quotient, I’ve heard quite a few good things about that one. I’ve never read Lauren Weisberger…..I’m not sure if you need to have read anything else by her before reading this, they seem to inhabit the same world. Will have to investigate. The Book Ninja should be good too. Basically lots of good books here, fingers crossed my unpacking and sorting demands let me get through a good number of them!

Thursday of this week I am off to see Lisa Ireland and Sally Hepworth at a local event, which should be amazing. I would count both among my favourite authors and I’ve been lucky enough to meet Lisa on several occasions as well. One good thing about pulling all my books out was that I was able to set aside the ones I wanted to take with me to get signed, as I found them all when I was transporting them to the new house.

Hope you all had a wonderful reading month in May. If you’ve read anything on my June pile, or you intend to, feel free to let me know 🙂

  1. Our piles are quite similar, but quite a few of my copies of the books haven’t arrived yet 😦
    I’m quite enjoying The Book Ninja but also having mixed feelings at the same time.. .it’s a bit odd.

    So glad the move went well. and good luck with the reshelving… 🙂

  2. Have fun at that event. How fabulous!
