July Wrap Up 2017

Hello August. Another month has flown by and I’m pretty sure all my days are blurring into one right now. However, before we officially welcome August, we have to say farewell to July.

So, what was the highlight of the month? My new kindle. Yes, I have finally taken the plunge and have purchased my very own kindle voyager. Why now? Simple, it was a prime day deal. 😛 In all seriousness though I’d been debating getting one for a while now and the deal came about at the right time and because of it I had the best reading month so far.

It’s very rare that I read more than 5 books a month but somehow I ended up reading a whopping 7 books in July! That is quite an achievement for me. My favourite book from the month had to be The Piper’s Son by Melina Marchetta. Her books always get to me and I loved reacquainting myself with Tom, Francesca and the gang. My fantasy read of the month was Our Dark Duet and I really enjoyed it but it’s not my favourite Schwab book. After that I was pulled to my addiction; Sports contemporary romances. Those books are all kinds of addictive and kept my reading mojo alive. Here is a summary of my July.

All Closed Off (Rusk University #4) by Cora Carmack

Publication Date: November 24th 2017

Goodreads Summary
Stella Santos is fine.

Maybe something terrible happened to her that she can’t even remember. And maybe it drives her crazy when her friends treat her like she’s on the verge of breaking because of it. Maybe it feels even worse when they do what she asks and pretend that it never happened at all. And maybe she’s been getting harassing emails and messages for months from people who don’t even know her, but hate her all the same.

But none of that matters because she’s just fine.

Discussion: Why I Should Read More Historical Fiction

History – the study of past events, particularly in human affairs.

There’s no doubt that contemporary and fantasy are my go-to book. I never want to limit myself to one particular genre so I’ll read anything and everything that interests me. I’ve not read many historic fiction books but the ones I have read have all been hits. As always, I have to be in the right mood to read historical fiction, but every time I’ve immersed myself in that genre I’ve always enjoyed it. So here are the reasons I should take the time to read more historical fiction titles.
