July has come to and end, and since I seem to have completely missed the end of June, I’ll combine for a double-header wrap up.
So I was supposed to be on holidays from my uni work, which should have theoretically opened up the time and brain-space for catching up on reading, right? In fact, it just paved the way for epic brain fatigue and reading slump. In a whole two months I’ve read a total of seven books, three of which were graphic novels.
But I’m gradually getting back into it. I read The Handmaid’s Tale before I watched the TV series, and loved it. Such a brilliantly written book, and different from your average current YA dystopia. Philippa and I discuss the book and series in episode 56 of our podcast.
In episode 55 we talked about a whole list of books coming out later in 2017, so get your TBR ready before you listen.
And that’s all there is to say about June and July! I’m hoping to get back into posting reviews soon, so bear with me. Sometimes the slump just won’t shift, y’know?
