It’s the first of June today! There’s not a lot to recap for the previous month, so this will be a very short post. Because of my dissertation stress, I took a hiatus of a little over two weeks, but now my dissertation is handed in and Books Baking and Blogging is back in business! If my dissertation is good enough (which I think it will be, but you never know) I now have a 3 month vacation, so lots of time to blog and read. After that, I’m going to do an internship at a publisher of school books, which I’m looking forward to already. But for now I’m going to take my time to relax after that whole dissertation extravaganza, because man, that was exhausting!
Now, let’s recap!
Read this Month
I finished reading Winter by Marissa Meyer which was a rollercoaster of emotions. The review is still to come, but will probably be up next week! After that I finished reading the book I laid aside in favour of Winter, which was Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen. After that, I hardly read a page because I was to busy, but I did manage to read Roald Dahl’s very short Revolting Rhymes, which a friend of my mother’s lent to me. I love me some Dahl, and actually included a few phrases from his take on “Cinderella” in my dissertation!
Posts this Month
- At the start of the month I did another What I’ve Been Up To about my vacation to France and my dissertation.
- I wrote a review of Fairest by Marissa Meyer, which I really enjoyed.
- This Sunday, to end my hiatus, I posted the recipe for the delicious blueberry and lime muffins I made a few days earlier.
- For Top Ten Tuesday this week I told you all about the top ten (or actually eleven) books I want to read this summer.
And that was it this month! I’m looking forward to doing loads of blogging again and hope to have a very full Monthly Recap for June! In the meantime, if you want to stay up to date with what’s going on with me, you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram. I’d love to have a chat with you on there! Or down here in the comments, of course. I hope you all had a great month!

I really need to read Sense and Sensibility ASAP! Happy June! 🙂
Thank you, you two! I didn’t like it as much as I did Pride & Prejudice, but I’d definitely recommend it 🙂
Revolting Rhymes are the best. I own the English copy as well as the Slovenian one and they’re both great (a good translation of such a text is something of a rarity). I love how gruesome some of his retellings are, he was one of those children’s authors who was not afraid to go to the dark side, I think.
I love that about his work! It so often takes a really dark turn, and it just works for those stories. Definitely one of the best storytellers there have ever been, I think 🙂
