It’s Friday, the happiest day of the week! I didn’t do a weekly wrap-up last week because the last day of the month fell on a Friday – you can read my June round-up here. It has been a tough week for reading and blogging because of general life things (again, all good stuff), but I did manage to read one book this week.
Anyone who has spent time on this blog knows that I am an absolute sucker for a gorgeous cover. I’ll always pick up a beautifully designed book, and the cover will sway me to purchase a book about 80% of the time.
June has come to a close and July has just begun. It's time for Instagram Sundays, featuring the week's photos from my Bookstagram account.
So I've been doing these monthly TBR strategy posts since April. I find they're really helpful for organising my thoughts and tackling small-term reading goals. Here's my strategy for July.
The sun is shining, everyone is sneezing, and June is coming to a close. It has been a very gross and sweaty month here in the UK, but has at least resulted in a lot of indoor reading time for me. Let's take a look, shall we?
So, I have a problem. When I like something, I’ll go completely overboard and love it to death. If I like a song, I’ll play it on repeat until I cannot stand to listen any longer (1997 was a tough year – to this day I cannot listen to ‘My Heart Will Go On’ because Little Justine just loved it so much). It turns out, I do the same thing with books.
I took a chance on Moira Fowley-Doyle's Spellbook of the Lost and Found after falling in love with its gorgeous cover on Twitter. I haven't read The Accident Season, her debut novel, so I didn't really know what to expect in terms of style.
