July Wrap-Up | Books

July was probably one of my worst reading months ever!

I finished one book. ONE BOOK! Ridiculous.

I’ve also been reading two others which I think I’ll be reading for a while & I’ve started a new book which I’m loving! 

Unfortunately, I didn’t really enjoy Keep Smiling Through by Lillian Harry – the only book that I did finish. It’s a wartime novel set in Portsmouth and it focuses on the residents of one street. While the background research was very strong throughout the book, it was difficult to follow each storyline as there was so much going on!

I’m also still reading The Art of Fiction by David Lodge and The Lost Diaries by Craig Brown which I’m really enjoying 🙂

Finally, I started reading There Was A Young Man From Cardiff by Dannie Abse this month and it’s already become one of my favourite books this year! It’s a must-read if you know the Cardiff area well 🙂

What have you guys been reading? Let me know!
