101 in 1001: June Update

Completed in June: 4 55. Read all Augusten Burrows books I finally completed this one by reading Sellevision on the plane out to Portugal.

July Challenge

I read 20 books in June. Which is a bit ridiculous but also pretty nice. I’m only 15 books away from hitting my original 100 books target, so it looks like I’ll have to up it a bit! I tend to read books on my Kindle whilst I’m at work and I took it to […]

30 Day BC – Day 20 : The Saddest Or Most Emotive Book You Have Read

The Time Traveller’s Wife definitely comes under this category. I’m pretty sure I’ve cried every time I’ve read it, because it’s full of emotion and I’m a complete sucker for a love story. (A lot of my favourite books are coming under so many of these categories that I feel like I’m repeating myself.
