As we get into these summer months, I am constantly trying to find the joy and hope in this world and the uncertainty that surrounds all of us right now. It’s such a scary time for everyone, and as Broadway keeps pushing back its reopening, my unease and anxiety of what world I will be returning to in the, hopefully near, future grows. It’s not always easy, but one thing I can say is that reading has given me those moments of freedom and escape and I am eternally grateful that I have such a big love of books.

You really got through some great books this month. Personally I wasn’t a massive fan of City of Bones but I definitely see the allure with the series. Shadowhunters is amazing!
I have had several friends who didnt like the first book either so I had put off reading it for so long. I finally listened to the audiobook narrated by Mae Whitman and really enjoyed it. I hear the series gets really good, so I’m excited to see where it goes!
