July 2017 Wrap Up

July, what can I say about this month. It has been cold. It has been full of new and exciting adventures. It has been hard. It has been busy. It has been good to me. I haven’t had a lot of time to read this month, but I have still gotten some done. I have also had a hard time finding something good to read. Lots of books have been put down this month. Hello reading slump. Anyway, it’s been a hell of a month and you can see all the exciting posts I have written this month on the blog, at your own pleasure whenever you like.

Here are my JULY 2017 books:

All 4 of these books, just didn’t work for me
  • Editing Emma by Chole Seager – couldn’t wrap my head around the setting and language, a little bit childish
  • Ariadnis by Josh Martin – too many weird names and places to try and remember with hard names to think and pronounce
  • The Build Up Season by Megan Jacobson – just not feeling it when I was reading it
  • Not Quite Nigella by Lorrain Elliot – got really boring and couldn’t keep dredging through it

HAUL –
