Well we are now a third of the way through July and I’m not sure that I should even worry about a wrap-up for last month at this point, I’m thinking the ship has probably sailed. At the same time, if it’s something I plan to continue then I can’t just skip a month and then continue like nothing happened.
So, even though it’s so close to midnight I can smell it, and it’s the beginning of the school holidays with a far few kms to put under my belt this week I am going to wrap-up last month nice and quick. Hoping of course to be a little more organised at the end of this month, though with a birthday on the 1st August I doubt it.

June saw me miss my reading target by quite bit which was a little sad, especially considering The Crooked Staircase is still on the TBR (to be read) calling me. I will get to it and I will get to it soon but we are so spoiled with amazing book club reads at the moment that I have to keep moving forward.
My favourite book last month was A Reaper At The Gates, the third instalment of a serious quartet that is still ramping up in its captivation. Often with series by the time you get close to the end it’s starting to miss something of its magic but not this one. I can’t wait to see how it all ends, I just hope we don’t have to wait quite as long this time.
My challenge reads last month were quite low but that seems to have changed already this month so hopefully I can keep growing that and reach my target.
I have a huge pile for July and am not quite a third of the way through so I’m off to bed and hopefully I can hit it hard tomorrow. I need a nice quiet hibernation cave, with plenty of reading light.
Have a great day
We would love to hear if you have read these, what you read and loved in June and what you are looking forward to in July.
Here’s the June List with review links:
My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
