the year in books: may & june

May has flown by in a flurry of family celebrations, leaving little time for curling up with a cup of tea and a good book.

Not a great excuse but the only one I have. But I do have good intentions. I will get back on track.  This month, I need to finish The Land of Decoration, my May read and I have a copy of Kate Atkinson's Life after Life waiting in the wings.

I am really enjoying this project and despite life getting in the way sometimes, I'm delighted with how being part of #theyearinbooks has revived my love of books and reading.

Joining in as always with Laura.


  1. Ah yes, Life after Life - added to my kindle around the end of the year, still not read. One day day! x

  2. I've been wanting to read Life After Life too. I thought it sounded a little disturbing so I wasn't sure. But I've heard such great things about it. Looking forward to hearing what you think.

  3. Hi, Bee! Glad you're finding some time to read again... May was hectic around here too.
    Looking forward to hearing what you make of your book choices.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. I love Life after life, Kate Atkinson is pretty much my favourite author, so good!

  5. i find reading difficult when the weather is nice and when i have sewing ideas and projects running around my head... although in London i always liked going to the sunny park with a sandwich and a blanket and a good book to read. hope you'll find some more time to spend reading this month! x

  6. Don't be hard on yourself, it isn't a race to get books read, better to take your time and enjoy them. I hope that you can get May's book finished though so that you can start June's, hope that you enjoy them both as well! xx

  7. I think that's why it's such a popular project. While I'm not joining in, I have enjoyed learning about what other people are choosing to read and why, and that in turn is influencing my book choices and purchases. I only read for about ten minutes in bed at night so it takes me ages to get through books lately! x

  8. I have enjoyed Kate Atkinson books in the past and I am looking for something for my dad to read in hospital so that is a good call. happy Friday for tomorrow. Jo x

  9. I loved Life After Life. Such a good read from a great author.

  10. It's on my 'to read' list so looking forward to hearing your thoughts. x
