July was a definite mixed month, filled with a couple of reluctant firsts! I finally caught covid after 2+ years of avoiding it and felt worse than I have done in years. Looking after two littles when ill yourself is no joke, especially when they each start feeling poorly as the days go by! Secondly, I don’t think I can not mention the heatwave! We got 39 degrees here and wow, it was rough. I mean summer is my favourite season but honestly, that was just too much for me. Definitely a July to remember!
In terms of reading, July was slow! I think it was a combination between not feeling great for a week, being too warm and just generally being more busy now the boys require more of my attention. I didn’t take part in any blog tours but I read four books and reviewed two.
What I Read
Do No Harm by Jack Jordan
The Last Library by Freya Sampson (eBook)
Book of the month
This has been a very tough choice as I read some great books this month, but, my book of the month is… All About Evie! I really enjoyed revisiting Evie and her world now she’s older. Her humour and wit return with a vengeance and, somehow, she’s even more likeable than before! If you haven’t read The Miseducation of Evie Epworth (my review can be found here) then I highly recommend it before embarking on All About Evie. You won’t be disappointed, she’s fabulous! My review of All About Evie will be up very soon, and I’ll also link it in this post so be sure to keep an eye out!
I have quite a number of blog tours in August so I’ll definitely be posting more frequently to keep up with those. I’ve read one book already but I’ve got three more to go for tours alone, so it’ll be a busy month! I’m going to make sure I take some time to read books I’ve been eager to read from my shelf though as I still don’t do that enough.
As always, a huge thank you to the publishers and authors who provided me with a gifted copy of a book in exchange for an honest review. You’ll find their details tagged in each individual blog post, linked above.
Until next time,
