June Wrap Up

June wrap up

Did June even happen?

Apparently so.

It still hasn’t sunk in that here in England, it’s actually Summer now – not that the weather has done anything to help remind me. So all those books I’ve held off “until Summer when I have more time”…well, now’s the time.

Anyway, it’s the start of July, meaning a June Wrap-Up is needed. So here we are!

As always, this will be a long post so get comfy and enjoy!

I call this photo “The one in which I nearly give myself concussion trying to balance 9 books on my head”. Bit of a mouthful, but true.

This book came along to me at just the right time.

I’d just finished reading Anne Frank’s diary (review coming on Monday). I was in the mood for historical fiction. And then lo-and-behold, this book turned up for me to review.

How lucky is that? 😀

So let’s talk about Paper Boats!

That Huge Build Up Of Books That I Hope To Read This Summer

summer TBR

You know when you sort of keep buying books and you really want to read them all but you don’t know when that’ll happen so you keep planning to read them soon and then you end up in a huge tangle of “oh my goodness what do I read now?!?”

Well, that’s basically what this post is.

I suppose this is a TBR, since I’m actually planning on reading these.

But these books are the books I hope to read this summer – well, all the books that I OWN that I plan to read. No doubt I’ll end up buying more. And obviously I’ll be reading more than just these books.

This was originally going to be a Top 10 post, but …well…there’s more than ten 😀

But anyway, I’m rambling.

Here are the books I own that I hope to read this Summer!

February Book Haul! (It’s a big one)

february book haul

I got a lot of books this month. A LOT.

But it was my birthday, so I guess it’s excusable?

But I’m not even sorry. My reading material is sorted for a few months now so I’m happy. Plus I’ve been really wanting most of these books for months now, so…yeah.

This post will be long enough on it’s own, so I won’t ramble any longer.

This will be in three sections: books I got before my birthday, ON my birthday, and after.

Let’s jump right in!

Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin

Wolf by Wolf

*All reviews I write are spoiler free*

What a confusing title! Way too much repetition in those six words.

I finished reading this book on Wednesday, but since I uploaded my discussion post that day, I saved my review for today.

Also having wolves as my favourite animal and being quite artistic came in handy when I needed a background for the review image, since I had this painting I did years ago stuck to my wall! Ahhaha 😀

So let’s talk about Wolf by Wolf!

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

I finally finished Outlander!

This book is huge. Over 800 pages. That combined with going back to college…well, it took a while to read this book. About 2 weeks I think?

But I’m so glad I read it!

I’d heard so many people talking about this, including one of my favourite Booktubers -Sasha Alsberg – so of course I was going to get round to it at some point.

And now that I have, here’s my review!

Let’s talk about Outlander!

My top 10 books of 2015

Top 10 books of 2015

So now that it’s the end of the year, I figured I’d show you what my Top 10 books of 2015 were. I think it’s going to be difficult to choose just 10!

I’ve written a guest post very similar to this over on Books With Em’s, so you guys should go and check that out!

Top 5 books of 2015

Anyway, I’ll mix this one up a bit so that it’s not exactly the same post. I suppose the guest post can be a sort of…Top 5 favourites from my Top 10 – if that makes any sense.

Now instead of rambling on, time for me to show you my top 10 favourite books of 2015!

December Book Haul Part 2…I bought more with a gift card!

December Haul

Guys…I know I just did a pretty big book haul yesterday…but I went out earlier today and got three more with a gift card I was given for Christmas!

You can never have too many books, right?

And at least I will actually read all the books I’ve gotten this month 😀

If you haven’t already, you should check out Part 1 of my December Book Haul, where I show you the books I bought before Christmas, and the ones I received on Christmas Day!

So here is my December book haul…part 2!
