  •  5 to 1 by Holly Bodger (2015 Debut) - THIS SOUNDS AMAZING! Seriously! I am loving the sound of this feminist sounding story! I needs to read it nooow! Also, look at that cover! Gorgeous!

    NetGalley:

    I have far too many books, so I'm going to try reviewing more on my kindle, even though I prefer physical books. That way, if I don't like a book, it's not taking up so much room.

      I'm thinking of discontinuing the First Class Post aspect of my monthly recaps. It takes so long to put these posts together, and now I have Instagram (go follow me!), I talk about the books I receive on there as and when they come. So... I'm thinking of giving it a miss for next month, and see how we go. What do you think?
      Can you believe half the year has gone already? Feels so strange! So how was June for you? What great books did you receive? And what content went up on your blogs? Link me to your round ups!

        1. I did! I bought too many books! :) The Accident Season's cover is SO BEAUTIFUL! I love it so much! Though I don't particularly understand it in relation to the book. But still, so pretty! And a fantastic book!

      5. So many fantastic books! I do agree about the space issues though. I try to get most of my review books on Kindle because there's only so much shelf space and the idea of throwing away books gives me a headache. Have a great week!

        1. Oh my god, I have just had a huge cull of my books because I just had more books than I had space! 297 finished copies in all! God knows how many ARCs, but I think a lot less. But I feel better now. I only have the books I want to read. But yes. More books on the Kindle! And read what's on my kindle! Aaargh, still too many books! Haha!

      7. Lots and lots of great books but I have to say the Awesome is just incredible, I reviewed a couple of months ago and was just blown away, it is fab!

        Hope you are having a great week!

        1. I've now read The Awesome, and while I enjoyed it for the most part, I wasn't Maggie's biggest fan; she's too snarky for me, and I don't like how she put women down. :/ But I do want to read the next one, if there will be a follow up :)
