I read nine books this month, and five graphic novels. Pretty good, if I do say so myself!

The weather is getting colder her in Australia as we head into Winter, and I am loving all the days with rain or just generally cold weather where I can get cozy on the couch with blankets, my cat, and my books. Unfortunately, quite a few of them have kind of been spent with me watching tv more, due to migraine symptoms and being unable to focus my eyes on printed words, but I still got quite a lot done and I am feeling kind of chuffed.

Out of the nine novels/books, seven were actually non-fiction, which fills me with happiness because I have been trying to read more non-fiction. In particular, I got back into nature writing this month, which was so wonderful - there is just something so relaxing about it for me. One that really deserves a mention there is Understory - I love that book so much.

I don't really want to go on for too long this time, so I will just say that I had a really good month for reading, despite some irritating symptoms, and I am already reading more for June. Oh, and I have already completed my Goodreads challenge of reading 52 books this year so... that's pretty awesome.

Huzzah for reading!

Love to all who read. (See what I did there?)
