31 July 2015


Hello everyone! First of all, I just want to apologise for the blog being so silent in July, but it's going to be silent through most of August too. I'm still trying to balance reading and working full time, which has led to me reading a lot more audiobooks, but I'd rather spend the next month getting into a routine than posting the odd review when I get around to writing them. So apologies, but it'll most likely be September before I get into the swing of things.

Anyways, onto what happened in July! I started my new job at the beginning of July and I'm loving it just now, but I'm dying to get on the counter an start serving - which will hopefully be soon! I saw 5 movies in the cinema this month. Knock Knock which I enjoyed even though it was a bit odd and the ending could've been better. Magic Mike XXL which I loved! I learned a bit more about the male stripping profession, and also the dancing was really hot. The Gallows which I found pretty scary, but it wasn't bad, just a bit predictable. Ant-Man which was fantastic! Paul Rudd was a brilliant choice for the lead character. He's funny, charming and had me cracking up. Definitely one of the better Marvel movies. And lastly, Inside Out which I obviously loved because it's Pixar. Pixar movies generally never fail to make me cry and this one was no exception. Also, the Lava short at the beginning was amazing!

Bookwise, I only managed to finish 8 books this month (one of which was a re-read).
None of the books I read in July were 5 star reads (minus ToG), but Lying Out Loud by Kody Keplinger was definitely my favourite. I listened to it on audio, and I found it so hard not to laugh when I was on the bus. Sonny is such a hilarious and extremely flawed main character, and I just completely adored the story.

So, that's it for July! I'm in the middle of a few books just now - The Pledge by Kimberly Derting, Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas - which I'm hoping to finish this month along with a few other books.

What was the best book you read in June?


  1. Oh you read This is One Moment too. I actually loved that one. Got a bit cheesy at the end(but what romance doesn't?), but otherwise it was fab.
    Can't wait for you to read SoC. YEA! :)
    I also can't wait to start rereading ToG. Even more YEA!
    Hopefully you're booking some vacations next week.

  2. LOL and Everything, Everything are two books that I want to read so badly. My favorite read this month was Bloodlines (I know - soooo behind!!)

  3. I can't wait to see Inside out :) Happy reading!
