When I started this book, I worried that it and I just weren't going to get along. Despite being 30+, and going through some stuff, Olive can come across as immature and self-centred. And the opening scene, with four giddy girls leaving university and dramatically screaming and sobbing all over each other did not sit well with me. However, thankfully, there was a lot more going on in these pages, which managed, in a non-judgemental way, to raise good questions about having children and whether you even need an obvious reason if you don't.

Review: The Empire of Gold by S. A. Chakraborty
Empire of Gold is the third book in the Daevabad trilogy and, with so much that happened in the previous novel, and so much that went wrong before, this book really gives Chakraborty the chance to put the epic in fantasy.
Review: The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant
So, I've been feeling quite meh recently, which was definitely reflected in my reading speed for The Court of Miracles. However, I don't know whether it was me, or this book, but I also went away feeling quite meh about this book, sadly.
Monthly Wrap Up – May 2020
Phew. This his been a massive month for my reading. For some reason, I've had an intensely aggressive approach to getting books read. Obviously I'm still enjoying reading them, but I feel like I'm competition with myself.
