Join me for a coffee whilst I reflect on this month in books?
This week, I’m drinking a coffee from my faves at Steampunk. The Pepe Mijanuanca is a microlot from Peru and has tasting notes of lime, lemon and marzipan, making for an interesting cup.
This month Steph and Kelly chose my TBR and I think this might be their best collaboration yet. I have loved every book from this list, these two have brilliant taste. This is also my 500th blog post since I started, and that feels like a very big number.

Conquering Mount Ted: I started February with 202 books and ended with 207, which I’m happy with given that I went YALC and gained a fair few books this month!
Hodderscape 2019 Reading Challenge: 11/12. I still need to read a sci-fi or fantasy book in translation. If anyone has ideas for this that you think I’ll enjoy, hit me up. Bonus points if it’s something I own!
And that’s another month in reading. How’s your reading been this July?
