July Monthly Round Up

Ahhh, July. One of my favourite months. Why I hear you ask? Well, I work in a high school and July means that the summer holiday is on its way. I have been off work for just under a week. It has been a bit of a weird week weather wise (alliteration game is strong there). Scorching hot sun which I have moaned about (I am ginger, I am not made for this heat) and then unrelenting rain. Ah well. Can’t win them all.

Anywho, onto the books that I have read this month. Here we go:

  • High Notes: A Rock Memoir by Richard Loren (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • Dead Girls by Abigail Tarttelin (Hardback)
  • Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher (eBook)
  • So Glad to Meet You by Lisa Super (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • Hello, Sunshine by Laura Dave (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • Heidi by Johanna Spyri (Hardback)
  • The Final Raven by Finian Black (Paperback)
  • Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool (eBook)
  • Cold Bath Street by AJ Hartley (Paperbook)
  • Until You Find Me by Amber Hart (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • Songs About a Girl by Chris Russell (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • Melody Bittersweet and the Girl’s Ghostbusting Agency by Kitty French (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • Hocus Pocus and the All New Sequel by AW Janth (Hardback)
  • Far From the Tree by Robin Benway (eBook)
  • Vinyl Freak: Love Letters to a Dying Medium by John Corbett (NetGalley Review Copy)
  • How to Be Famous by Caitlin Moran
  • A Crafty Cigarette – Tales of a Teenage Mod by Matteo Sedazzari (eBook)
  • Second Best Friend by Non Pratt (eBook)

So I didn’t read as many books as last month but I still think it was a bloody good attempt. Also, I haven’t managed to go up a NetGalley review percentage – darn it. Ah well. I am really close, I swear.

I am currently reading NetGalley review book Maybe in Paris alongside a re-read of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Already I have deviated from the summer booklist (see photo). What I did notice though is that I was able to tick three more books off the BBC big read list, so go me.

The books that stood out this month were Songs About a Girl by Chris Russell, Hocus Pocus and the All New Sequel by AW Janth, Far From the Tree by Robin Benway and How to Be Famous by Cailtin Moran. I really enjoyed them.

Hope your August is full of bookish goodness.
