You are probably bored of hearing me say “I’m sick!” but guess what? I am still sick. The flare up of my Ulcerative Colitis continues – boo hiss – but I have had two blasts of my new medication so hopefully we will see some improvement soon. Although last time I got my infusion I was called by the IBD nurse the day later to say that my haemoglobin levels have dropped dramatically (from 124 to 84) and I need an iron infusion. Three weeks later and I am still waiting on this. Sad and tiresome times.
Anywho, I have read quite a few books this month and here they are:
- My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix (Hardback)
- Your Turn To Die by Sue Wallman (Paperback)
- After Me Comes the Flood by Sarah Perry (NetGalley Review Copy)
- The Paris Effect by K. S. R. Burns (NetGalley Review Copy)
- Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero (Paperback)
- How Do You Like Me Now by Holly Bourne (NetGalley Review Copy)
- Cover Up by Patricia Hall (NetGalley Review Copy)
- Searching for Grace Kelly by Michael Callahan (NetGalley Review Copy)
- The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett (Hardback)
- I’d Rather Be Reading by Guinevere De La Mere (Hardback)
- Men and Women Talking by Gloria Steinem (eBook)
- Gloria Steinem: The Kindle Singles by Salamishah Tillet (eBook)
- The Art of French Kissing by Brianna Shrum (NetGalley Review Copy)
- The Suffragettes by Penguin Classics (eBook)
- Animal Farm by George Orwell (eBook)
- While I Was Sleeping by Dani Atkins (Paperback Review Copy)
- The Library at the Edge of the World by Felicity Hayes McCoy (NetGalley Review Copy)
- Puddle Jumping by Amber L Johnson (eBook)

I managed to go up another percentage on NetGalley. Now I am at 40% – woohoo!
The two books that stood out for me this month were Holly Bourne’s How Do You Like Me Now? which was bloody brilliant. The other book was Dani Atkin’s When I Was Sleeping which blew me away. I am still not over it.
I went to a bookish event this month. My sister and I took my niece to Waterstones in Liverpool to see a reading of The Tiger Who Came for Tea. It was fun and super cute. I am glad I got to be there for my niece’s first visit to Waterstones.
Also this month I have embarked on a physical book buying ban. I lasted three weeks. I am actually rather proud of that.
Anywho, I hope you all have a great July filled with Bookish fun!
