+ International Giveaway
What a month! We bought a house, I did a blogging talk at Winchester Writers’ Festival, went to my cousin’s wedding up North, there was that referendum thing and now the country is in a right state. We had a palaver with our Help to Buy ISA bonus (the website to claim was broken) but we’ve just had word from the solicitors that they’ve agreed to pay it post-completion. Hopefully they’ve ironed out the bugs now, but if you are relying on it to complete, pester your conveyancer to submit it early! The less said about politics, the better, although I have become fascinated with economics.
Needless to say I haven’t read much at all in June. I skipped on my challenge reads; if I have any spare time in the second half of the year I will aim to make the yearly total at least 12 of each. There are plenty of classics, non-fiction and graphic novels I’m eager to read after all. I’m semi-retiring from my book group too, I would like to see people socially now and then but it’s a bit far away from home now to do every month.
I’ve had loads of new books through the door, and via NetGalley, so I’ll be updating you on them on Sunday. I’m going to try harder to offer ARC rehoming on the blog every few months, so keep your eyes peeled. Moving house reminded me how many books I have that I had kind of forgotten about.
Anyways, there’s only a few books to choose from in the giveaway but there’s some corkers in there. It’s still international and you don’t have to follow to enter. Check out the Rafflecopter for details. Don’t forget to check out my other giveaway too (and there’ll be lot’s more to come, so don’t go anywhere).
