May 2017: A Bookish Reflection


May was a bit of an odd month for me. Due to it being such a stressful, busy time in work I fell into my first mini reading slump of 2017. I was also struck down by a painful back/hip and fell out of sync with my journalling too. All in all it was a bit of a nightmare! Luckily over the last week or so I’ve picked myself back up and I’m feeling much better.


Number of Books read: 7

Number of Pages read: 2,260

Last Breath (Detective Erika Foster, #4)  When Dimple Met Rishi  Flame in the Mist (Flame in the Mist, #1)  Half of a Yellow Sun

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them  If I Was Your Girl  Who Runs the World?

Despite my slumpy feeling I did manage to read 7 books in May and on the whole I enjoyed them. It took me a while to read Flame in the Mist as it was very wordy but I thoroughly enjoyed it! A quick overview of my ratings is listed below. Book covers link to the Goodreads page for each book, the titles below will lead you to my review.


When Dimple Met Rishi

May Book of the Month absolutely has to be the wonderful When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. This book just filled me with SUCH joy and happiness. I fell in love with Dimple who is such a fab character, I love her ambition and independence. Rishi is an absolute darling and I just wanted to give him a big cuddle. This book is a cosy read with plenty of moments to warm your heart. It is also full of laugh out loud moments. I’d love to see this book as a movie, it would be bound to be Rom-Com of the year!

June is shaping up to be a rather fantastic month already. Just looking at all the wonderful books being released on 1st June is making my mouth water and my bookish heart pound. It’s certain to cost me a fortune but it’s my birthday this month so I deserve bookish treats, right?

    • Oh no! I’m glad you read some books you enjoyed though. I loved Caraval and Stephanie Garber is super lovely too! When Dimple Met Rishi is FAB and I thoroughly enjoyed Flame in the Mist! Would love to hear what you think 🙂
