Hi and welcome to my monthly bookish overview! It’s not been my best month in terms of reading, I’ve listened to only three audiobooks instead of the usual four, and the novels-I’ve-read list seems to be a bit shorter too, but of course there was Wanderers, a beast of a book that’s about the size of two regular-sized books, but worth every second I spent on it! In related news, I’ve now read and reviewed all my pending blog tour books, and I have only two NetGalley ARCs left (I had only the one but I couldn’t resist requesting Sheryl Browne’s latest this week, and I’ve been approved). I hope to keep this up for a while, so there’s more time to read my own books… But enough chitchat, take a look at what I’ve done this month, and some of what I’ll be posting next month:

I also stacked the shelves with FairyLoot books and goodies, not once, but twice: I got the May and the June box. I had a Music Monday Q&A with David Ellis Overttun and I shared an extract from Dead Is Beautiful by Jo Perry. I put the Tranquility Trilogy by Linden Chase in the spotlights and I announced #Orentober. I also shared what books have taught me so far this year and I joined Meggy’s Positivity Wave.
As for my book of the month… Really tough decision, I’ve read some great stuff, but I keep coming back to these and I can’t seem to choose:
Hope you had a great month! Happy reading!
I haven’t heard of The Escape Room or the Wanderers.
Hope you have a great July
They’re not out yet, I think ? Keep an eye out for my reviews to find out more ? Have a great month!
Three audiobooks still sounds massively impressive to me. It takes me a whole month or more to finish just one ?
Normally I get through half a book a week just by driving to work and the other half when cleaning and ironing. I have this week off and 3 weeks in August so my audiobook numbers will dwindle even more this month and the next.
Ohhh you read some great books! I can’t wait to read The Escape Room now (my blog tour spot is recently in August, but I’m not waiting that long haha). Have a wonderful July! xx
I did! And now I wish I’d saved one for this month, I’ve been feeling let down by a few rather hyped books I’d been looking forward to ? My spot for The Escape Room is in August too but I couldn’t wait any longer ?
