July Wrap-Up

I finished work in school on 24th July, so I’m looking forward to a summer of catching up on my TBR, EXCEPT for the week I’m going to Ireland to visit my family which I’m so looking forward to, but apart from travelling, there’ll very little reading! I’ve done a LOT more reading than I thought this month.

NetGalley Approvals:

I’ve been auto-approved by another publisher on NetGalley which was a lovely surprise, although may mess up my ratio which is currently at 82%. The books which I have on my NetGalley shelf to read are:

  1. Great reading month! I was so tempted by the early ebook of Uki but I’m already swamped (pardon the pun!!) so I’ve resisted so far but I’m not sure I won’t cave as I LOVE those books so much!
