What have you been reading this week?
We’re already a few days into July and I can’t tell how my reading is going to go this month. I already have most of my Spell the Month challenge ready to go and there are a few extras that I want to get through. However, it all depends on what mood I’m in. Working is getting busier and more frustrating. This will either inspire me to read more or just leave me too exhausted to do anything. Still, I feel like I’ve spent the first half of the weekend getting stuff done, which means I can actually enjoy today.

- BOOK REVIEW – Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender
I’m not quiet about the fact that I’m not much of a YA fan. I just don’t tend to enjoy it as much as adult fiction. That doesn’t mean that I’m not willing to try it. Especially when it’s a book that I can’t seem to get away from. Felix Ever After has been cropping up on Instagram feed for some time now and I knew I had to give it a go. Would it change my mind about YA fiction? Find out why by giving my review a quick read.
- BOOKISH POST – June Reading Wrap-Up
Another month has ended, which means it was time to look over my reading habits in the past few weeks. April and My hadn’t gone as well as I’d wanted them to. Would June be any better? Read my post to find out.
- BOOKISH POST – Spell the Month in Book Titles: June
June may only have 4 letters but two of them are kind of tricky. U is one that always struggle with and J is oddly quite difficult for me. I just don’t have many titles starting with J on my shelves or, at least, nothing that I’m aware of. There’s probably a few in one of the overspill boxes or piles that I’ve forgotten about. So, the question is, did I find something or did I fail my challenge? Read my post to find out.
- BOOKSIH POST – 2021 Reading Resolutions Mid-Year Review
I know that it’s been a while since I posted a TBT film review but, as Thursday was the halfway point of 2021, I decide it was worth going over my reading resolutions for the year. It’s good to check in and see what I still need to work on. Turns out, quite a few things. Although, I’m not doing too badly. Head over to my post to see how well I’m really doing.
- The Mystery of Love by Andrew Meehan
This was my final book of June and my final book for Pride. Telling the story of Oscar Wilde’s marriage from the perspective of his wife, this was quite an interesting book. I love novels that play with facts and real life. This was something I was excited to read and am glad that I finally got round to it.
- The Water Cure by Sophie Mackintosh
I’ve owned this for a while and it seemed like a good time to get it read. I’ve heard mixed things about it and I decided it was time to find out for sure. Feminist dystopian fiction has been pretty uninspiring of late, so I’m not sure how this will turn out for me.
I’ve bought two books this week:
- Once Upon a Time in Hollywood by Quentin Tarantino: How could I not? I mean it’s a film that I love and it’s Tarantino’s debut. Why not give it a read at some point? Also, I know it’s a film cover but I think it looks pretty good.
- You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour & David Levithan: I needed a Y title for July and I stumbled across this one on Amazon. Why not keep the Pride vibes going?
- Luther– I finally got round to watching season 5 and I loved it. I was weeping for most of the finale and I think there were some really strong episodes. Can’t wait for next season.
