May Monthly Wrap-up
This month was kind of a bust in terms of reading. My anxiety and anhedonia took center-stage with everything going on right now. For those of you who don’t know, Corey and I are selling our place, I graduated from therapy, and I started a new semester. It’s been a stressful month to say the least. Anyway, I didn’t really start reading anything until the last week of the month and I didn’t really read as much as I was reading before. I’m glad I did read, though. Hopefully, June will be better.
Since it was the only book I read, my favorite book was THE LOVE HYPOTHESIS by Ali Hazelwood. It’s a good thing I really loved it.

How did your May go? What are your plans for June?
Sorry you didn’t get to read as much as you wanted. Hopefully June is a better month.
It’s okay. I got other things done instead. 🙂
We all have those kind of times where nothing is right and too much is going on. I hope you feel better in June and that you get to read some nice books. Best wishes.
Thanks, Marianne! 🙂 I think June will go a lot better with reading. Hopefully, I can catch up a little bit too.
Selling a house and moving is just so stressful. I’ve sold 5 homes and moved about 30 times in my life, and it was always stressful. Exciting too! but also stressful. I hope you feel better in June and are able to read a bit more.
This is the second time Corey and I’ve sold our house. I don’t remember selling our house before being so stressful. Ha! I remember moving being stressful since I’ve moved over 20 times in my lifetime and I’ve hated every on of them.
It’s about the quality and not the quantity. I’m glad that you enjoyed the book you read. That’s important! With all the other stresses going on, it would be hard to find the time or concentration.
Definitely. Quality or quantity is much better. 😀 I’d rather read one book that I loved than 15 books that were all mediocre.
I, too, was reading-challenged in May and barely read anything until the last week. Twins? I have to stop comparing myself to other bloggers who always seem to be able read so many books each month. Graduated from therapy? What happens is you need fine-tuning? Is there a plan for that? Take care of yourself.
Yep, it sounds like we’re twins this past month. 🙂 There are plans for fine-tuning. Basically, I don’t have group or a set appointment each week. Now, I just ask for a booster session when I need one. It works nicely.
One great book beats a many blah books lol
I read 3 for May, which is good for me these days.
You have a lot going on right now so you read when you can!

I agree. I’d much rather read quality over quantity. 😀
It’s definitely fine to focus on other important things and read a bit less – it’s a hobby and should be enjoyable. And it’s great that you loved your read! Hope your June will be less stressful. Your June plans also look amazing – I’ve read and loved both Where The Crawdads Sing and Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, hope you will too. Hope you’ll have an amazing June
Thanks, Lindsey! 😀 You’re right. It’s good to step back and remember that reading’s a hobby and sometimes other things take precedence.
One good book is better than ten mediocre ones! Hopefully June will be a little more settled for you. Wishing you a great week!
I agree! 😀 Quality over quantity. Thank you!
