Mental health is really being a bugger at the moment, I don’t know what’s setting it off but that’s 2 weeks, near enough, during which I’ve just been feeling low.. I wanna say maybe I’m not getting enough sun but when I venture outside the anxiety kicks off. It’s quite annoying. And it’s affecting my reading. I managed half a book this week.. I have a minimum of 11 more to read this month so that very much is not good enough. I was hoping the read-a-thons might help but nope, not at all. I think I’ll have to go on a personal read-a-thon over the next 3 or 4 weeks. I’ve upped my Goodreads challenge to spur myself on a bit more!

Physical Books


Dark Horizons by Jenny Colgan (yep, the chick lit author) is the last book I accepted for review this Summer. I have closed review requests and shan’t be opening them until At least September because I have too much to be getting on with over the next couple of months. This is a Doctor Who tie-in and will be my first, purely because it’s by Jenny Colgan! I’ll have a giveaway for this one soonish too.

The other four are unsolicited review copies. Summerland and The Far Shore I’m not entirely sure about, but Renegade is the second in a series I’d really like to read (plus it’s pretty), and I’m interested in The Island House, which seems to be a Scottish Viking romance type thing. Operation: Clear Out will have to go forth very soon.

Ebooks for Review

Consume by Melissa Darnell

Okay, this one wasn’t in last week’s incoming post. I still need to read book two of this series but I really enjoyed Crave, it was a good read, so I requested book three a while back. This has to be my favourite cover of the series, too! Even so, thinking I need to put a little note in my NetGalley profile saying, “Please don’t accept me!” For the next few months. Haha.
