June Wrap Up – Sassy Saturday

This is not posted on a Wednesday and 7 days into July. Your eyes deceive you.

Happy Pride Month! I can’t believe I can’t say that again for another year, but I’ve had a great time while it lasted. Even if it’s just capitalism, it’s so nice seeing rainbows everywhere. Finally, I’ve finished all my exams and the weather has started to actually heat up… to about 18 degrees. (But this is England, so that’s about as good as you’re going to get.) What more could you want?

A few weeks ago, the amazing blogger Sassy Library Fox nominated me for their original tag, Sassy Saturday. You can check out the original here. I thought it would be a perfect way to finish off the month!


S – Series you loved this month

Now that the second season is on Netflix, I finally started Feel Good. I’d heard a lot of praise for it before but I can’t stress how funny and moving it is… and how involved I am in these characters now. I loved Charlotte Ritchie in Ghosts, so if you enjoyed Feel Good I’d highly recommend you check that out too! (Ex horrible histories stans where are you at?).

A – Author you discovered

Did you know that The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater is on Spotify? For free! As is Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall (another book I’d been meaning to read forever). I did not know this, so was ridiculously excited when I discovered the Raven Boys audiobook. I’m in love with Will Patton’s voice and whilst I don’t normally do audiobooks, it’s just perfect.

(And free.)

I’m about half way through, utterly intrigued and can’t wait to see where it goes!

S – Song you couldn’t get enough of

I did a presentation on the Punk Movement for school, so I ended up doing a deep dive into some of the classics. For research! My favourite so far is Personality Crisis by the New York Dolls -I’ve had it stuck in my head for weeks.

S – Surprise – Something that totally caught you off guard

HOW LONG 700 PAGES ACTUALLY IS. To all the other veterans of The Priory Of The Orange Tree, I now join your ranks. It took me about 2 weeks (of intense reading) but whilst it was absurdly long, and I kind of get PTSD looking at the cover, IT WAS WORTH IT.

Sabran and Ead, and Jannart and Niclays have my entire heart.

Y – Your fave blog post of another blogger

I loved The Bookish Mutant’s June Wrap Up – I liked not stacking up the amount of books I’ve read this month and just enjoying them, but MADELINE READ 20! Which blows my mind, and definitely deserves a big shout out.

I spent most of this month rereading Carry On and Wayward Son, and tackling Priory! But I also tried Truth Witch by Susan Dennard, and really liked it.


I Nominate:

No pressure at all! You can do it now, save it for later in the month, for a July Wrap Up or just not at all 🙂

I’m a teenager (and a Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore and books. Pretty much any book I can get my hands on but my favourites are Young Adult, fantasy and science fiction. One day, I decided to share some of my opinions on some great - and not so great - books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it and I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of book reviews (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.

  1. The Raven Cycle is one of my favourite series so I’m really glad you seem to love it too! XD And I haven’t heard about “Feel Good” yet but I’ll definitely take a closer look at it. You made me curious! *lol*
    Thanks for doing “SASSY Saturday”! ❤

    1. Aw no problem, it was so fun! I’ll definitely give it a go for my next monthly wrap up as well. I’m so glad to have found a fellow Raven Cycle fan (I couldn’t believe that some of my bookish friends had never heard of it?) and hope you enjoy Feel Good!
