May-July Wrap Up

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've had a post on this blog. So this seems to be the month that I've started to get out of my slump. I've got reviews written and scheduled for the whole of August and I'm getting there with September as well, so fingers crossed this is me on my way back!

So this is probably going to be a pretty big post. I haven't done a wrap up since the end of April, so there's a lot to catch up on.

In May I celebrated my 23rd Birthday, had two weeks off from work and headed off to London for the 3rd time. I completely adore London and of course, while I was there, I couldn't not revisit the Harry Potter Studio Tour due to the addition of the Hogwarts Express! I also went up to tour The Tower of London for the first time, visited the Natural History museum and did a couple of football stadium tours because that's what the fiance wanted to do. And then on the final day we happened across the BAFTA's and I met the lovely Katherine Ryan. I also got to see Busted live twice in Glasgow! Busted were my favourite band when I was younger, so I was super excited to see them back together. 
May was a good month for reading as well. In May I read 10 books.
1. Tangled by Emma Chase
2. Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy
3. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
4. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
5. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
6. The Dead List by Jennifer L. Armentrout
7. Wrong Number, Right Guy by Elle Casey
8. Do You Remember the First Time? by Jenny Colgan
9. Charged by Jay Crownover
10. Addicted After All by Becca and Krista Ritchie
A Court of Mist and Fury was by far my favourite book in May.

June was a bit of a quieter month. Back to work and all that. I saw some pretty good movies in June as well: Nice Guys - brilliant, hilarous, and Matt Bomber as a villain <3; Me Before You - I sobbed my heart out; The Boss - extremely funny! I managed to read 9 books in June which I was pretty happy with. 

1. Fuel the Fire by Becca and Krista Ritchie
2. Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher
3. Christmas with Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher
4. Always with Love by Giovanna Fletcher
5. Sunny Side Up by Holly Smale
6. The Summer After You and Me by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
7. On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves
8. Settling the Score by R. S. Grey
9. He Will Be My Ruin by K. A. Tucker
He Will Be My Ruin just had to be my faourite book. Nothing else I read in June came anywhere close to this one.

July was a quieter month again. Didn't really do much. Spent more of the time inside due to the awful weather here. I got completely addicted to Pokemon Go because I was determined to beat my fiance at it - which I did! Haha! I saw quite a few movies this month: Absolutely Fabulous - which was hilarious; Central Intelligence - another one that was hilarous; The Neon Demon - very strange and weird, I may be scarred for life after it; Now You See Me 2 - AMAZING; Ghostbusters - really enjoyed it, a lot better than I thought it would be and Jason Bourne - boring, too much action not enough story, fell asleep. In July I read 9 books (3 of which were re-reads). I also kicked off my full series re-read of Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampires which I can't wait to work my way through again!

1. Trust in Me by Sophie McKenzie
2. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick (re-read)
3. Truly, Madly, Deadly by Hannah Jayne
4. I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
5. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (re-read)
6. Did I Mention I Miss You? by Estelle Maskame
7. Glass Houses by Rachel Caine (re-read)
8. Torn by Jennifer L. Armentrout
9. Game by Barry Lyga
Game was by far my favorite book of the month. I Hunt Killers was really good, but Game took Jasper's story to the next level and it was fantastic! I need to get book 3 right now since this ended on a pretty big cliffhanger!

Let me know how you got on in July and what your favourite book of the month was!
