july wrap-up

I can’t believe another month is over already! Where is the time going?! The end of the month only means one thing – it’s time for my July wrap-up! This month hasn’t consisted of a great deal of reading, but I’ve been SO busy it’s crazy. Not only have I started some exciting things involving a brand new website, but my blog has helped me get a job!! I’ll tell you all about it at the end of this post but first, let’s have a quick wrap-up of the books I read!

books ive read

The Wrong Kind of Clouds by Amanda Fleet

The first book I finished in July was The Wrong Kind of Clouds by Amanda Fleet, which I was kindly sent from the author to review. It’s another crime fiction novel and I really enjoyed it. Patrick Forrester is abducted from his home and held hostage, and his ex-girlfriend Summer works with the police to find him. What makes it interesting is that we read stories from all sorts of other people’s perspectives. It was an easy read once I got past the fact that there were SO many narratives. I almost couldn’t get my head around it! As soon as I understood who everyone was, though, I flew through it.

The Madam by Jaime Raven

Next on my list was another book sent from the author: The Madam by Jaime Raven. The first thing I loved was that the main character was a strong, feisty woman in an LGBT relationship. I’m a sucker for great representation! The characters and the story were so strong and I loved reading it. Funnily enough, it’s another crime thriller, which I seem to be reading a lot of at the moment. Lizzie, the main character, just got out from prison after a four-year sentence for a crime she didn’t commit. She wanted only one thing: to seek revenge on whoever it was who set her up and wrongly landed her in prison.

Angels Unlimited by Annie Dalton

I had a sudden urge to become a child again and read one of my favourite book series from my early teenagehood: the Angels Unlimited series by Annie Dalton. I may write a post about these books at some point. I’m still working my way through the series!

The books follow Mel Beeby, a 13-year-old girl who dies after being run over by a speeding car. She is sent to the Angel Academy, where she trains to become a time-travelling, troubleshooting guardian angel. I love these books so much! Even though I’m now reading them as a 21-year-old and spotting all of their flaws and sometimes cheesy writing, I DON’T CARE. I’m willing to see past all of that for the sake of nostalgia. I’ve read 4 of the books in the series this month and I have 3 more to go. There are actually 12 but I only own 7… I need to do something about that!

We’ve Come to Take You Home by Susan Gandar

Finally, I’ve just finished We’ve Come to Take You Home by Susan Gandar for a blog tour. I really liked this book! I won’t say too much about it because I just posted my review a couple of days ago (you can win a signed copy for yourself by going to that post!). Here’s a little sneak peak from my review (picture courtesy of the author on Twitter)…

other things

As I predicted, it’s been a pretty busy month. I’ve been revamping my blog and beginning to transfer it all to a brand new website, I graduated from university, and best of all, my blog has landed me a job!! From now I’m a self-employed Virtual Assistant with the amazing help and support of Taskerly. I’ll write a whole post about that so look out for it very soon! In the mean time, you should go to my new website at wonderfullybookish.co.uk and pop your email in the box to get a notification when the website goes live. I’m so excited to launch it – this might even be one of the last posts I do on this blog before I move over to the new one! How exciting!!!
