June Wrap Up

I’ve had a bit of a slower reading month than usual this month, but I’ve read some amazing books and am getting back into the swing of things again now.

What I Read

Book Post

I’ve realised I’ve not been including my NetGalley books on this list so I’m adding all my NetGalley TBR onto this month’s new books.

The Death House by Sarah Pinborough

And on NetGalley…

What I Wrote:

Ugh I’m stuck in editing hell at the moment. It feels like there’s a billion things to do and I don’t even know where to start. Any tips appreciated!

What I watched:

TV

I finished watching AMS: Roanoke and I think it’s actually been my favourite season so far. Super creepy and gory and I loved it. They still don’t know how to end things though: I feel let down by each final episode, though this season wasn’t as bad as previous ones.

Films

We watched Beyond the Gates, a film that’s been on our radar for a while and I finally bought it for Nathan for Father’s Day. It’s got a great retro board game horror thing going on, a bit like an adult Jumanji (though not as scary in my opinion!) It was good but I think we were expecting more from it.

What I Did

I finally did my theory test – and passed it! I’ve been revising like mad each evening for the last month or so and it paid off in the end. There were a few questions I had to guess but it all worked out in the end. Plus I aced the hazard perception (69 out of 75!) so I’m clearly very perceptive 🙂 Now I just need to practice and get the practical test done. Watch this space!

What Little Moore Did

Little Moore still isn’t walking, though we think he’s getting close. He’s more stable on his feet now and will walk holding just one of our hands. Think he just needs the confidence to do it now. He’s been enjoying the hot weather in the daytime, playing in the garden and paddling pool with his cousin, but not so much at night. 30 degrees is way too hot to sleep in!
