What are you reading right now?
Magician by Raymond E Feist
I’ve been reading this for about 2 months on and off.
I’ve had a really really bad year so far with family illness’s which have put a strain on my personal and work life.
As a result I have not been reading much at all.
This book has been a comfort. It’s the longest book I’ve ever read and its nice to have a constant companion.
It was also recommended to me by my dad so its nice to have something to talk to him about that isn’t hospital related.
What was your favourite book this month?
I think it would have to be Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas
Magician by Raymond E Feist
What was your least favourite book this month?
Crown of Midnight, also by Sarah J Maas
What do you want to read next?
The Deepest Blue by Sarah Beth Durst
I’ve got this one out of the library. I really hope I get time to read it.
I do love Sarah Beth Durst’s writing so I have no worries about liking it. It’s just about finding time.
I haven’t read the original series that this spins off from but if I like this one I will definitely go back and read those 3 books.

How are your challenges going?
The Unread Shelf Challenge:
I don’t think I have any for this months prompt, but I have been reading unread books from my shelf!
Book Box Challenge: Nope
Netgalley Challenge: Er, nope
Reviews: Um, yeah. I’ve dropped 2, but I still have FIVE to write up. And I’m not gonna be reviewing the Psy-Changeling books I’ve been re-reading, or we’d be here till next August, haha.
The Unread Shelf Challenge: I’m behind with this now.
Reviews: Haven’t written any in ages
Any rants or raves?
Anything to boast or even just chat about?
Illumicrate will be offering a book only box from July and I’m so excited! I love all the special editions that they produce, but the other stuff…I Just don’t know what to do with. I hope to switch over in August, though knowing my luck, they’ll start having EVERYTHING that I want in their boxes.
