What I’m Reading: June 2022

Woah, May was rough and reading was hard. Thank goodness for audio books. Between chemotherapy and my hospital admission, I was on the struggle bus for concentration. I found it nearly impossible to follow story lines and stay engaged. Nonfiction was out of the question and audio books were my savior!

I managed to get through Emily Henry’s latest. I read her previous books, loving Beach Read and liking People We Meet On Vacation. I wanted to love this book too but I struggled. Still fun, easy to read but I found the characters whiny and one dimensional. I did however love Park Avenue Summer — I’m always game to read historical fiction. I appreciate learning about women who forged the way in business for the rest of us and changed the face of pop culture in doing so.

I’m excited and anxious to read Between Two Kingdoms. This was another glorious gift from my darling friend and book fairy. I’m going to give it a try and see if it hits too close to home or right on its mark. Hoping I can crank this one out before I’m admitted to the hospital for my month-long HSCT stay.

Books and reading are my escape especially from emotional turmoil and difficult times. It’s frustrating when chronic illness, medications and life take that away. But I will always keep trying, even if it means listening to the same 15 minutes of an audio book at bedtime several nights in a row.

Reading is reading and I need stories in my life.
