Books read: 9 (2 less than June)
Pages read: 3452 (1411less than June)
Average pages per day: 111 (65 less than June)
Average book length: 383 pages (59 pages less than June)
Favourite: Obviously I adored my Red Rising & Golden Son re-read, but my next favourites were probably This Savage Song & The Hatching.


Deadpool –
A rewatch at home with family.  Still great fun and genuinely funny the second time around.
Star Trek Beyond –
One I saw in the cinema with friends, and I really enjoyed it.  It had a more Guardians of the Galaxy feel I thought – less science-y and heavy on the humour, but still great fun.
… I think that’s it?!


Grey’s Anatomy (3 x 12-21) – Yep, still completely hooked on this one…
Attack on Titan (1 x 6-7) – I’ve been slowly rewatching these because I didn’t love it as much as I expected to the first time around, but I haven’t had much chance this month!
The Originals (2 x 3-21) – We loved The Vampire Diaries so now that we’ve exhausted all the episodes on Netflix we’ve been catching up a bit on the spin off series.  There are moments I love, but at the same time it can definitely feel a bit same-y after a while.
Containment (1 x 1) – I’ve only seen the first episode so far, but I enjoyed it.  Post-apocalyptic stories, virus stories, zombie stories etc are all things I can’t resist, but I’ve yet to really find a TV show I love along those lines (probably because I’m such a huge wimp) so I’m curious to see if this can become a favourite.

How was your July?

  1. I pre-ordered Cursed Child and OF COURSE Amazon is going to be late shipping it out. It’s like the only one I forgot to switch over to me new pre-order go-to bookstore. Sigh. Ah well…I’m sorry you’re not loving The Originals as much as TVD – I’m the total opposite: gave up TVD last season like a bad job but still super obsessed with The Originals LOL! You have tons of good reading going on an a fabulous haul!! Happy August! xxx
