A Quick July Catch Up

July has whizzed by in a blur of sun cream, ice lollies and the whir of electric fans as we've struggled in the heatwave. I now think fondly of my jumpers and winter coat and I'm dreaming of the day I can slip them onto my shivering body. Here's what I've been busy with over the past few weeks...

The school summer holidays have arrived and I'm looking forward to the family trips we have planned (but no so much the back-to-school shopping. Urgh) and catching up on some reading while I haven't got a deadline to work towards. I have started Book 10 and have sent the proposal to my editor, so I'm waiting for feedback before I plough on. I will share more when I have news!

I'm finally reading The Summer of Impossible Things by Rowan Coleman. I wanted to read it last year, but I made myself wait for the paperback (as I prefer them to bulky hardbacks).
This month, I've also read:
You Sent Me a Letter by Lucy Dawson
Forgive Me Not by Samantha Tonge &
Obviously, part of July was taken up by watching the World Cup but I've also been watching the new series of Unforgotten (which I LOVE) and I've caught up with the first series of The Bletchley Circle, which I somehow missed. I've got the second series to catch up on and then I'm ready for the new series which has just started.
Film-wise, we watched The Incredibles (a family favourite) at home before we went to watch the much-anticipated sequel. We all loved The Incredibles 2 and can't wait until it's out on DVD!
Luna, bullet journaling, reading and the HarperCollins summer party :)

So, that's how I've spent this sweltering July - let us know what you've been up to and if you have any book recommendations in the comments below!
