If we could all just ignore how late this wrap-up is, that’d be great.
June was full of football, books, a Lego typewriter and Millie of course. I’ll have an update about her next month because if I don’t post this wrap-up today, it’ll never get posted.
So for now, on to the books!
| BOOKS I READ |
Some awesome, some not so much. And if only I had reviewed all of them, I’d be way ahead of my 20 Books of Summer Challenge. But no! That’s currently at a pathetic total of 4. [That was when I first wrote this wrap-up. I have now proudly arrived at the impressive number of …. 7 🤣.]
Anywho! Massive contender for book of the year on this list. Get your guesses in. Prize* will be awarded at the end of the month.
*There is no prize
| WHAT I LISTENED TO |
Goodness me, do I love a British accent or what?! *swoon*
I am *still* listening to David Copperfield. I can’t even remember when I started this but it was months ago. Late March or early April. And I still have 12 hours left. Still, enjoyable though and brilliantly narrated by Richard Armitage. [Also at the time of first writing this post. Much has changed since but you’ll have to wait for the July wrap-up.]
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, on the other hand, super short! Also brilliantly narrated by Tom Mison, who played Ichabod on the tv series a few years ago. Not at all the creepy story I thought it would be but it’s definitely left me wanting to watch the show again. Especially as I don’t actually know how it ended.
| BOOKS WHAT ACCIDENTALLY FELL INTO MY BASKET |
Only 8. That’s not too shabby. Maybe I finally have my book buying impulses under control.
| RECEIVED FOR REVIEW |
I’ve already read and reviewed one of those so that’s okay, right? Huge thanks to the publishers!

Anypoodle, that’s it for June. My mother-in-law is on her way, hence the rush job. I haven’t seen her since summer last year. Somehow that didn’t feel long enough yet 😳😂.
Wishing you all a fabulous Sunday! Until next time. xx
