Bookish Reflections – May 2017

A monthly round up of all things bookish at Sammi Loves Books…It’s my attempt at becoming more accountable in my reading and reviewing habits…


In a nutshell

I’ve read more books than I have reviewed this month.  Seven were completed, and yet I only wrote one review!  I did wonder whether there was any point posting May’s Bookish Reflections, but then, if the point is accountability it would be wrong not to.  In fact, I have neglected the blog entirely this past month because of one thing or another and that leaves me feeling quite disappointed with myself.  Well, I endeavour to do better this month, and of course, something I always look forward to is coming up…Indie Only Month.  So, any book review requests or recommendations, send them this way.  And I promise to respond within a couple of days 🙂

To be honest, my aim this month is to catch up with the backlog of reviews that need writing.  If I get around to reading anything else, it will be a bonus.  We shall just have to see which books catch my eye…
