The end of June is here, and it is time for yet another wrap up. Buuhuu, I don’t want the summer to end, I’m starting to dread it already. Since I had my big blog pause in May I didn’t do a wrap up for that month, so I’m including the books I read in May in this post.
The format of this post will be a bit different from how I used to do my wrap ups. Instead of writing my thoughts on every book I have read that month in one long post, I will do a summary of my month. My thoughts on the books I read will be in separate posts called 3 IN 1 MINI REVIEWS, that means I will post a blogpost of my thoughts every 3rd book I read. You can read my first 3 IN 1 post HERE.
In May I had my big blog pause. I only wrote 1 post on my blog to let you know I was ok. Even though I was in a blogging slump, I did quite a bit of reading. 7 books isn’t that bad for me. This was also the month I went on vacation to the West of Norway to visit my grandparents and other family. I celebrated 17th of May, Norway’s constitution day, with my family on the West side. It was such a fun day. I wore my Bunad and ate lots of good foods.

This month has been a roller coaster of anxiety and problems with my chronic illness. The start of the month was absolutely horrible, but thankfully it is better now. Besides not feeling great, I have prepared for my trip to Croatia next month. I have dragged my mom and my brother to the mall to buy things I need for the trip. I have shopped A LOT, and spent so much money. The weather has been absolutely beautiful this month and a lot of my time has been spent on the porch tanning and reading.
