I can’t believe we’re already in July where has half of the year gone, I also can’t believe that my summer holiday is over with as I’m now starting my last placement of first year and the longest at 8 weeks. I’ve had a great relaxing month in June and have been able to spend time sorting out my blog. This month I’ve finally got around to sorting out my About page, I’ve added a rating scale page, I’ve also managed to categorise all of my post making it easier for you to find specific posts and I’ve finally sorted out a blogging schedule which means that even when I’m really busy i should be able to get posts out.
This month I read 7 books. 5 of these were contemporary which is very unusual for me as I’m not the biggest fan of this genre and usually only read one or two contemporaries a year.
The second book I read was The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This was such a powerful and important book that I believe everyone should read as it covers the extremely important topic of police brutality in America and the black Lives Matter movement. I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars. Review to come.
The third book I read was Our Own Private Universe by Robin Talley. This was a great LGBTQI+ book and I loved the bisexual representation in it, though I didn’t love it as much as I hoped I would. I gave this 3.5 out of 5 stars and review to come.
The next book I read was Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon. This was a quick fun read though I was disappointed with the ending as I feel it could have been done in a much better way for this reason I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars.
The Fifth book I read this month was The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. This book was writing in the form of letters and covers some deep topics. I gave it 4 out of 5 starts.
This month I also reread Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. This is one of my all time favourite classics. I love the story and Jane and Mr Rochester are one of my favourite otps. I gave this 5 out of 5 stars.
The last book I read this month was Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. This is a retelling of the Iliad. This book was amazing and broke my heart. I gave this 5 out of 5 stars. Review to come.
