Where did June and the last six months go? I spent the last two weeks of June on holiday in Cornwall and didn’t actually read as much as I hoped to. Never mind, I did have a lovely holiday hiking with my husband and son, enjoying the wonderful views and sunshine, when it wasn’t raining.

I only read seven books this month, and only two of those were for the #20 Books of Summer challenge, a pity not all seven were for the challenge.

I enjoyed these audiobooks immensely and it’s confirmed that I really do prefer this medium for reading. You can read my review of English Lessons here, it’s a short memoir of an American student’s time in Oxford, England. I’ll be adding mini reviews of the other audiobooks soon.

I also read The Hate U Give by Angela Thomas, Nutshell by Ian McEwan and                        The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett. These were all outstanding reads for me and I’ll be adding mini reviews for them soon.


As planned I joined in with quite a few different memes this month:

Standalone Sunday, First Line Friday, Top Ten Tuesday, Waiting on Wednesday, WWW Wednesdays!, Tuesday Tuesday, Throwback Thursday, It’s Monday What Are You Reading Now? and Goodreads Monday, Bookstagram Sunday and six Degrees of Separation which is great fun. I also took part Down the TBR Hole tag a few times and will keep on with this tag as it was strangely cleansing, even though it’s a virtual shelf.

How was June for you?

I’d love to hear about your month in the comments.
