June has felt like a really busy month for me, yet it’s still gone past almost painfully slowly. I managed to read eight books this month though; three non-fiction, four fiction, and one poetry collection.
Carol Ann Duffy’s award-winning 2011 poetry collection, The Bees, was Duffy’s first publication as Poet Laureate. It explores a variety of topics and themes, all bound together by the subtle symbolism of the bee.
One of my reading goals this year is to tackle my TBR. In my Spring Readspost, I mentioned some of the books that have been on my shelf the longest, some for two or three years, so when I came across The Unread Shelf Project, I knew it would be a perfect motivator to keep me focused on my plan.
