End of the Month Round Up

Update on the Month 

So...June! I can't believe we're into July already! A lot seemed to happen in June though! I started the month by going on a Hen Party in Amsterdam for one of my Uni friends. Had an amazing time, I love those girls so much! Then my best & oldest friend came down to do a colour obstacle run with me! We got absolutely covered and had a blast! Then yesterday (well Saturday 2nd July) I went to the wedding of one of my Uni friends. Naturally it was a great day, but I think it's safe to say I drank a little too much! Oh and it was my birthday this month, but that seems like something not quite as exciting really!


OHHH and Cloaked is now officially finished, it has a cover and is just waiting for a release date!!!

Costs of the Month 

So this is basically the amount I should have spent on books, and the amount I actually did spend. I am ridicolously grateful for the existance of Netgalley and Review Copies it must be said! The prices I use is for the kindle edition of a book unless it isn't available or I read a paperback copy.

Year Total £493.71£62.36
