June 2014


Welcome to my monthly round-up for June 2014.
These posts showcase the books I’ve bought, begged, borrowed or won (I draw the line at stolen!) during the previous month. I’ll try to mention everyone that appears in the blog, in a tweet when I publish the post, but I apologise in advance to anyone I’ve forgotten.
So here we go:

Books I’ve Bought
During June I bought on Kindle:
Pariah, The Helper & Marked by David Jackson
Six Years by Harlan Coben

Ninja Book Shop

I took part in the summer book swap organised by Ninja Book Swap. The idea is to sign up to send a parcel to a fellow swapper containing a book (or 2) from their wish list and a small gift. I hope to post a blog update soon with details of my parcel from the swap.

Vey Inspiring Blogger Award

I was nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award by Raven at Raven Crime Reads. This is my first blogger award nomination and I really am chuffed to receive it!

  1. I just loved (and felt so identified with) “he books I’ve bought, begged, borrowed or won”. Same here! I think I will love The Awakening of Miss Prim by Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera, so can’t wait for your review.
