Another month has come to a close and I am definitely NOT READY for June to be over! This month has been jam-packed with book events, gigs, catching up with friends, and trying to reorganise my room for the new bookshelves I’ve bought (and half built) – and when you include the roasting hot weather we’ve been having here in London recently, you get a very very tired Helen.
I popped into Foyles this month (I was very well behaved and didn’t cave and buy any books!) to see if I could finally meet Chloe Coles, author of the brilliant The Bookshop Girl. Luckily Chloe was in that day and we had a little chat and she signed my proof! Thank you Chloe for letting me interrupt your day.
I only managed to read 3 books this month – I know, that is an all time low (heh) for me – but they were all absolute stonkers of books so I can’t complain at all!
(Also, I’d like to take this opportunity to blame TfL for my low reading number – the number of train disruptions and alternative routes I’ve had to take to work has resulted in less reading time for me. Thanks a bunch, trains.)
Books read in June:
- What Sunny Saw in the Flames by Nnedi Okorafor
- The Girl Savage by Katherine Rundell
- The Way Past Winter by Kiran Millwood Hargrave
