Wrap-up and TBR banner with a selection of books with red spines

June '19 wrap up

Good morning bookworms!
OMG how are we in the second half of 2019 already?!


So, I read 6 books in June (well, I DNF’ed 2, so I guess I only read 4?), and I’m trying very hard not to beat myself up for it. which is definitely my smallest monthly count for this year so far. However, I got through some review books, and that’s the main thing… (well, I’ve also already read 4 books in July, so I think I’m definitely coming up the other side of the slump!!)

Top read for the month was my reread of Maggie Stiefvater’s The Scorpio Races – I mean, seriously, if you haven’t read it, you really should – there’s a reason that this book is my all-time favourite novel (and the audiobook is just as good as the physical copy!). Links above for reviews, and I think I’ve only really got a couple more to write!!


So, as previously mentioned, I won’t be doing set TBRs any more. (I still need to redo my banner!!) However, I will be noting review books that I have to read this month because they are due!

  • The Gamer’s Guide to Getting the Girl – Kristine Scarrow (thanks Netgalley)
  • Toffee – Sarah Crossan (thanks Bloomsbury)
  • The Bride Test – Helen Hoang (thanks Allen and Unwin)

Plus these two left over from May:

  • We are Blood and Thunder – Kesia Lupo (thanks Bloomsbury)
  • StepSister – Jennifer Donnelly (thanks Hotkey)



Well… I wouldn’t say that I slacked off as such, but there were a few days that my blog definitely didn’t get the love and attention it deserved (from me, not from you! You all are amazing!). I was planning on fixing that towards the end of the month with a bit of extra love, but that plan was thwarted as well when I hurt my back… Seriously, July will be my month to catch up!!

So, there were some pretty amazing posts out there this month (although I apologise because I am behind on blog-hopping as well). These are some of my faves that I saw:


WE MOVED HOUSE!! Finally!!
I also had a birthday, and then I sprained three discs in my back. Both of which were somewhat painful, but the latter was far worse.
Only joking, my birthday was great. I worked from home that day, in my pj’s, and a) I got to buy books and b) my armchair for my ‘library/study’ arrived. Best day ever!!
