Following May’s chemotherapy, I wondered when my concentration and ability to get lost in books would return. It took about a month. June was fast and furious reading hard cover books, e-books and audio, one after the other. It felt like finding myself again or returning home.
By far, my standout from last month was Lessons in Chemistry. I could not put this book down and read it over the weekend. Trigger warning: it’s set in the 60s and there is awful work place sexism and assault. Having said that, the imaginative writing, brilliant character and message were outstanding. Give me a book where the dog is narrated as well all day, every day.
As I’ve been back in the hospital, had additional chemo and been quite out of it, this post reads a bit like a boomerang. I relied heavily on audio books when I was at my worst but once again, I’m looking forward to reading.
Any recommendations? Send my way! My TBR always needs some love.
