Monthly Summary: May 2019

Welcome back to another Monthly Summary here on Pages and Tea.

Here’s a surprise – I only finished two books during the last month. I thought I’d read more than that, but apparently not.
What I did read though was very good. First I went adventuring with M. Poirot again and discovered just who murdered the unfortunate Roger Ackroyd. Talk about the unexpected! Definitely a twist to remember, and I’ll watch out for future books delivering such a great surprise.
Next my reading became post-apocalyptic as I witnessed a journey across a desolate land inspired by the theft of a much-loved family pet. A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World was just brilliant. I savoured each and every page, and didn’t want to reach the end, even though I found it heard to tear myself away from reading just one more chapter.

When I wasn’t reading, I finally posted my take on the Spring Cleaning Book Tag, and I thought about books I would love to see given the big screen/tv series treatment for Top Ten Tuesday.
There was also another instalment of the Bout of Books read-a-thon, which gave me the opportunity to make daily updates to the blog, even though I didn’t end up reading a massive amount during the event.

Here’s what happened in May on Pages and Tea…

    Just a few days ago I thought about Agatha Christie books I used to devour in high school and how I needed to re-read them to refresh them in my memory!
    Also, for some reason, I love Hercule Poirot books much more than Miss Marple ones (even though they are great too!) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I’ve gotten on the Overdrive hold list for A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World due to your recommendation!
