It’s time for my monthly Wrap Up and TBR post!
The aim of this reading game is to help me read more books and hopefully get on top of the ever-growing To Be Read pile. The more books I read, the more books I can buy. The more books I can buy, the more books I can read. It’s a win-win, right?

Book of the Month
Yet again, there is a clear winner this month. I have been waiting for the release of Holly Bourne’s debut adult novel, How Do You Like Me Now? ever since I first heard about it in The Bookseller, and it did not disappoint. Brutally honest and painfully relatable, I can’t wait to share my thoughts about this in a full review.
Floored by Eleanor Wood, Holly Bourne, Lisa Williamson, Melinda Salisbury, Non Pratt, Sara Barnard, and Tanya Byrne | My Heart Goes Bang by Keris Stainton | The Invitation by Keris Stainton
July is going to be a busy month for me work-wise, so I didn’t want to set myself up to fail by giving myself a large TBR that I wouldn’t be able to get through. On the other hand, I am delighted to say that I will be attending my first ever YALC in July, and I CANNOT wait. *screams with excitement* I will be there on the Friday so if you see me, please say hello!
The three books that I chose for my TBR this month are all books that I was excited about. Floored has to be one of the year’s most anticipated reads. Written by SEVEN of the UK’s top YA authors, I have nothing but high hopes for this.
I am a huge fan of Keris Stainton, and I couldn’t be happier that I have TWO books to read from her this month. The Invitation is an adult novel and My Heart Goes Bang is YA. Both of them are 99p on Kindle at the time of writing so GO, GO, GO!
What will you be reading in July?
