I am finding it difficult to concentrate enough to read at the moment with all that is going on in the world. I don't know if anyone else is struggling? 

I don't mind the whole staying in and social distancing when I go out for essentials such as food or medication. It's just everything feels in limbo and when you do have to go out it feels like a very eery atmosphere to me as if one slight thing could cause a problem or argument with some people. It's difficult to fully explain it. I guess it's not "normal"
It's certainly an odd, not very pleasant feeling. 

Hope you are all well and staying home & staying safe. And if you are a key worker, be it in a hospital, care home, supermarket, garage, waste collecting or post delivery person, delivery driver etc 
(sorry if I missed anyone off)


I am also currently reading these ARCs . . . . . .

My Non-Fiction Read was . . .
So I have started this one but am seriously struggling with it, it isn't quite what I expected it feels like a "holiday" type brochure for a Victorian Asylum as opposed to explaining what real life for normal people was when admitted to this type of establishment. Its difficult to explain, but I have had to just put it to one side for now.
