May 2020

My inadvertent social media hiatus has meant that this wrap up is just a teeny bit late. I mean at this point I'm struggling to remember the days never mind the month. It could be September for all I know right now. Needless to say, it been a strange few months and as a result, my desire to read took a bit of a plummet. Normally I'd be…
