Monthly Wrap Up

Six months since the new year and I am still stuck in a time warp! Why don’t we have 48 hours in a day? Imagine how many books one could read if there were 48 hours in a day! Every book lover’s dream I suppose. Or, I could move to Mars – I would at least get 37 minutes and 22 seconds extra every day. Enough time to read a novella. 😀 Psst, if you the Flash, you could read a gazillion books in 37 minutes… just saying.

Speaking of Mars, if you are interested, you could get your name sent to Mars. If J’onn J’onzz or someone else is still stuck there, they might consider crashing at your place when they visit Earth. Okay, Jokes apart, you can send your name to Mars. Check the NASA website for more details – they will etch your name on a microchip and send it on the next Rover(2020).

Also, if you are in the UK and a budding/wannabe author, you might want to check the competition hosted by PF&D and Agora Books. I was so excited about this Lost To Plot competition and thought it would be a nice idea for me to finally finish the book I have been *ahem* procrastinating about *ahem* thinking of writing. However, yesterday I learned that the competition is open only for those living in the UK. 😦 Anyhoo, if you want to participate, go ahead. You can thank me later! 😉

I went on a semi-hiatus of sorts in June. I didn’t want to completely stop reading books or something but I took my own sweet time to read a book. I managed to read 15 books in June, not a bad a number considering that my reading was way too slow this month.

Come July and I will be participating in almost ten blog tours! Ten!! The books were too good to say no to and I ended up saying yes to almost every blog tour that came my way. 😀

I read some pretty quirky books this month. 😀 The one that I am currently reading is called Leg Up and it is super hilarious. 😀 😀 I also ended up choosing some disappointing reads this month! Two crime classics, two cozies and two mystery & thrillers – very disappointed with my selection!

June has also been a month of decisions. I decided not to read Jenny Starling series anymore; not read Crispin or Lorac’s s novels – not very sure about this though. I also decided to eat healthy, decided to try my hand at baking cakes and cookies… oh goody! That means bye-bye to healthy eating, isn’t it?

So, moving on to the list of reviews this month.

By the way, how I wish I could attend Bodies in the Library Conference! Maybe next year…maybe! My monthly wrap up post has turned out to be a news column or something! Hopefully, I will have more bookish details to share next month. 🙂
