What i’m reading: July.

what i've been reading July

I love reading, ever since I was little, i’ve been fascinated by stories and how easily I get sucked into these other worlds. Its my love of reading that spurred me on to write. One of my life goals is to one day be a published author. A very long way off, but until then, the world is full of books to read.

I like to read as much as I can, some months I devour story after story, some I don’t manage any. But ever since discovering Amazon Kindle unlimited (yes this is a thing £7.99 a month and unlimited kindle downloads! *Not every book is covered under this, so check before you purchase*) I’ve been reading every week.

I’m not a book review blogger, I won’t be going into serious details of characters or plot breakdowns, just a little paragraph on what i’ve been reading each month.

So this month I’ve read:

Grey – E.L. James. 


Yes, Yes I know, some love it most hate it. I honestly liked the whole fifty shades story. I enjoyed the blossoming romance of Anastasia and Christian. I cringed to death throughout the film and  Grey… well, honestly I had to force myself to finish it.


The girl on the train – Paula Hawkins. 


This really is a good read. I lay out in the sun – back when we actually had a summer- and read until it was finished. If you want something to get sucked into, this is your book. The perfect holiday read.


Stranger child – Rachel Abbot.


I loved this book! Loved, Loved, Loved it! I started it at 6pm, with my head still firmly stuck in the book I managed to give the kids supper and get them to bed (Parent of the year! ha). Before I knew it, it was 2am and I was finished. I was exhausted but, this really big thing had just happened in my life.. It took me a few hours of going through the story I had just read before I finally got to sleep. If you haven’t read it yet, go download it now!


Sleep Tight: Rachel Abbot.


So this is actually the book previous to Stranger child, I did no research before I read the last one. I think thats maybe why I don’t really like it. I’ve given it a good go (145 pages in) but its just not grabbing me like Stranger child. Meh.. I really hate leaving books half finished, so I will continue it at some point. hopefully it gets better.


So thats what i’ve been reading this month, I’d love more recommendations. What have you been reading?
