May 2024 Wrap-Up + Book Haul


Well, May was a busy month. I worked 20 days straight and then had only a few days off sprinkled in. In light of that, I feel pretty accomplished with the number of books I got through. I read 8 books in May, though I ended up in a slump the last couple weeks of it so I potentially could have read even more. Still, an overall good reading month. I only hauled two books this month as well, so we're still on track for downsizing my book collection and saving money. But, without further ado, let's dive in!

Review TK 




The first of two books I got this month was Tourner by Jane Washington. This is the second book in her Ironside Academy series and one I absolutely adore. With the release of the fourth book at the end of May and the upcoming series cover change, I knew I wanted this book on my shelves. I love these covers and Tourner really is one of the more stunning ones in the series. Plus, the story is so much fun and very addicting. I'm just excited to have it and add the next two to my shelves later in the summer. 

Then I picked up the Stardew Valley Official Cookbook by ConcernedApe and Ryan Novak. I've become a huge Stardew Valley fan in the last six months and, being a huge foodie, I was so excited when this cookbook was announced. Cooking is a relatively big part of the game and having a lot of the recipes be represented in this cookbook to then get to try is a very fun prospect. I've had a couple cursory flip throughs so far but I'm pretty excited to dedicate some time soon to having a proper look. 



Thanks for reading!
