It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey

Can you believe it's July already? I'm just ahead of target on this year's reading, having read 94 out of 180. I'm also taking part in Paris in July this month so keep your eyes out for some French themed posts (and a giveaway).

I put together a little post about improving cover design aimed at self-published authors last week and it's proved to be quite popular. I will continue it as a series covering things like fonts and textures. Hopefully it will be of some use.

If you're looking for my sci-fi challenge post for July, please bear with me. I seriously did forgot about July! There is a quickie poll to the right and I will announce the group read along with a new linky tomorrow.

Read last week:
Cold Grave by Craig Robertson
The Long Earth by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter
The Goddess Legacy by Aimee Carter

Also reviewed:
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Currently reading:
Split Second by Cath Staincliffe

Upcoming reads:

Search terms:*

""the world of poo" written in the perspective of toilet paper?"

"bcc is underhanded"
No it's not...unless you're up to something dodgy?

"what is beyond the city in divergent"
Good question. I don't know the answer.

We are all looking for more time but I don't think Google is going to help.

"books by colour"
I still haven't got past the yellow day...

Everyone loves comments, right? I read them all and do my best to visit your blog if you leave a link (and you're not a spambot).
