    I love reading, although struggling to get much time for it at the moment. But it means I savour it that much more when I do get a chance.

    What is nice to see is that because I've spent a lot of time reading to my little boy even at his age he loves books. It warms my heart to see him get so much pleasure out of them.

    It's such a nice thing to pass down to the kids 😀 dd always liked reading but I noticed when I started reading again she started wanting to read chapter books like mum 😀 and because of that her reading level at school has hugely improved 😀😀

    That's wonderful @Jensha. I hope my DS is the same. We would read all kinds of things to SS when he was younger. At one point my DH was reading The Short History of the World by Geoffrey Blainey. He was such a curious child and there's just so many interesting historical facts in that book. He really liked it and DH got time to read a book that he was interested in as well.

    I am about to start reading Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty.

    I just finished reading book 7 of Body Movers (7 Brides for 7 Bodies) by Stephanie Bond.

    Bad behaviour- Rebecca Starford
    Great girls in Michigan history- Patricia Majher
    The first bad man- Miranda July
    Mr kiss and tell- Rob Thomas
    Simple things- Bill Condon
    Hot little hands- Abigail Ulman
    13 storey treehouse- Andy Griffin
    How to be bad- E Lockhart

    I read heaps in May! Quite a lot of children's and YA books as I felt I'd been neglecting my reading for work. The standout was probably the last book- So you've been publicly shamed. Essential reading for anyone who uses the Internet!

    Currently reading The Tournament by Matthew Reilly- a good page turner.
