WRAP-UP| July 2018

I think taking part in readathons during the summer was a bad idea. It's easier when I'm at Uni and can pull myself away from people and its usually in temperature - I've just been slumping this month.

Books to finish:
  • Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson
  • Ravencry by Ed McDonald
  • Assassin's Quest by Robin Hobb
  • The Price Guide to the Occult by Leslye Walton

The Song of Achilles
Madeline Miller

I gave this a star rating of around 4.5, I don't know what held me back from giving it five stars other than not obsessing about it afterward as I had thought I was going to do.

  1. I loved the audiobook of fantastic beasts by Eddie Redmayne! He honestly has such a nice voice for narrating

    1. Dorine,

      Blessed you've mentioned this!! :) I am constantly on the 'hunt' for narrators of audiobooks to seek out but also, the STORIES themselves! I've been putting off getting into Fantastic Beasts - though why I'm uncertain. Just because a girl was in a rut during HP years and became a Potterhead full-on through the films and having read Book One whilst realising she's #Ravenclaw to the core -- isn't any reason not to listen to this series, eh? I think my library has a copy or did I add the copy to my Audible Wish List? Ooh dear my... I'll have to chase it down! lol

    2. I totally agree with you on Eddie Redmayne as a narrator! He's the sole reason I tried the audiobook rather than read the physical.

      Jorie, I would highly recommend giving Neil Gaiman's audiobooks a go - he tends to narrate them himself. David Tennant is another actor I love - his narration of How to Train Your Dragon is both a personal favourite of my brother and I.
