Coffee and … A Bookish July

Join me for a coffee whilst I reflect on this month in books?

coffee and...

The Coffee:

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.

The Books:

month in books

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?

  1. Congratulations on 500 posts! I’m so pleased you enjoyed so many of your reads this month, and I really enjoyed reading the True Colours of Coral Glen together ๐Ÿ’œ. I’ve read 19 Books this month, which I’m thrilled with, and have really enjoyed most of them, which is even better ๐Ÿ˜Š. I also got to 100 books for the year which was very exciting!
