Books Read – April, May and June 2016

Books read in May 2016. Links in titles take you to reviews either here on Reading Upside Down or on Kids’ Book Review.

It’s been a chaotic couple of months for me at home and my reading time has been all but non-existent. I’ve really struggled to concentrate when I’m reading, so I’ve concentrated on picture books. I’m hopeful that I’ll get back on track reading regularly soon. There are so many amazing new releases that I want to read, plus a huge backlog of older titles. Hopefully I’ll get back into a better reading routine in July.
