Well, this is a little late…oops. Not even gonna lie a little bit, I’m still struggling with blogging with any form of regularity, and as I still have a brace on my arm, typing still isn’t super simple. I wasn’t really in work in July, well the early part of the month, so I ended up reading a lot. Well, a lot for me, I don’t remember the last time I read over 20 books in one month. And I not only read new books, but discovered new authors *cough* Neil Gaiman *cough*, and took part in the 24in48 readathon. But yes, last month I posted my wrap post quite late, and also re-discovered new adult which most definitely carried on into this month.
OK, it’s been a little bit of time since I last did one of these posts. I was going through my posting funk at the end of May, so it completely slipped my mind to do a wrap host detailing all the books I read that month. I didn’t want it to slip by unnoticed, and I also didn’t want to have a gap on my blog, so I’ve decided to combine May and June on this post. A warning, a heads up, it’s gonna be a long one. Last time I posted a wrap was way back in April (click here to read) and I’ve read almost 25 books over May and June, so there’s lot’s to wrap!
I don’t usually start a posted a bit of a life update, but I decided in this case it is necessary. Over the last couple of months I’ve really struggled with posting, or posting regularly at least, and now I’m struggling to type at all. It’s got nothing to do the content or mental block, about 10 days ago I had a car crash. Don’t worry I’m fine, but it’s left me with a broken arm. Not only a broken arm; a broken right arm. And yes, you guessed it, I’m right handed. One thing this broken arm has taught me is that Google Docs now has a really handy speech recognition facility. It’s not perfect, but I thought I’d give it a go, well a second go, to finally produce the rap post that I wanted to do for a few days. It’s really hard to write and edit a post with a broken arm as it turns out.
Look, Look, I am actually posting a wrap post on time. What is happening in the world?! I have gotten back into a real reading, reviewing, and blogging routine at points of this month, which is probably why I remembered this so quickly!
OK, so this month that number/volume of reviews is going to be quite a lot shorter than usual. That said, I am still pretty pleased with my progress because I have finished some books that have been on my currently reading list for literally months, and I have read a lot of long books. I completed the Tome Topple readathon this month, the point of which is to read books over 500 pages together, so the fact I have actually managed to read 6 books this month is pretty good going.

I have read a lot this month. I really feel, for once, that I have read a decent amount in one month. Considering how much time i have had on my hands, this is probably a good thing. I noticed a few friends doing wrap-up posts, so I thought the New Year is as good a time as any to start this trend off for my blog. Continue reading
