Hello everyone! June has been a busy month for me so I haven’t had loads of time for reading but I did finish two audiobooks, and I’ve nearly finished reading Six Crimson Cranes. We went for a day trip to Cambridge for my birthday and went punting on the river which was fun.
The Stardust Thief by Chelsea Abdullah (audiobook) ⭐⭐⭐ – This book was a magical adventure and I wish I had loved it more. For some reason, I just didn’t click with it. But it is a great book and I’m sure lots of other people will love it.
Breathe and Count Back From Ten by Natalia Sylvester (audiobook) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – This is my first 5 star read of the year! I have been working on my review for this book and trying to find the right words to describe how it made me feel. This book is stunningly written and I felt such a strong connection to it. Breathe and Count Back From Ten is about a disabled protagonist, written by a disabled author, and Natalia Sylvester really captured the experiences, feelings, and emotions of being disabled so well, it was deeply relatable for me. Full review coming soon!
I’ve been trying not to buy too many new books, but it was my birthday this month so I did get a couple of new ones – Gideon the Ninth and Harrow the Ninth. Gideon is one of my favourite books so I’m so happy to have this book on my shelves now, and I’m excited to read Harrow.

Happy July! So psyched for you about your first five-star read of the year, can’t wait to read that review!!
This month, I really enjoyed reading Henry VI, Parts I and II! I love (most of) Shakespeare’s history plays and the characters in this particular sequence of them are so compelling.
Happy July! I’m so glad you are enjoying reading the Shakespeare plays! I studied a few of them at uni but haven’t read them all.
Thank you! It’ll probably take another year or two, but I hope to get there eventually 😅
i’m so happy to hear you loved breathe and count back from ten—it’s been one of my most anticipated reads for so long!! i hope july is treating you well so far 🤗❤️
Hi! Yes I loved it so so much and would definitely recommend it! I hope you enjoy it too if you get a chance to read it. 🤗❤️

Have a great August reading month.
Great to hear you are enjoying it so far, I hope you love the rest!
