Monthly Round-Up – June 2014

Monthly Round-Up – June 2014 June was a bit of a washout reading-wise. I only finished 2 books in the whole month which is not like me at all. I really need to catch up in July. Books I read this month: You Couldn’t Ignore Me If You Tried by Susannah Gora Tristant and Elijah by Jennifer Lavoie Books I reviewed this month:    Click on the above covers to […]

Monthly Round-Up – May 2014

Monthly Round-Up – May 2014 May hasn’t been a good month, for reasons I mentioned in my previous post here.

Cinder is the kind of novel that really ticks my boxes. I mean, a cyborg Cinderella – it is absolute genius. Yet Cinder is more than just a fantastic premise. There is a lot of […]

Monthly Round-Up – April 2014

Monthly Round-Up – April 2014 April hasn’t been a great month for me. My mum’s cancer is spreading and the doctor’s told us about a week and a half ago she will likely only have a few weeks left. I haven’t been able to focus a lot on my reading this month (not surprising really, given the circumstances) but blogging has really helped to take my mind off things. I […]
