WOW how quickly did July fly by? This month has been amazing – the weather has been hot and my favourite book event, Theakston Crime Festival in Harrogate took place from 19th-22nd (see my blog post here), so I was pleasantly surprised to see I still managed to read 12 books during the month. Once again I’ve selected some books from several genres including YA, True Crime, Psychological Thrillers and there is a superb contemporary novel in there too.
Below are the books I’ve read with links to my full reviews and the Amazon pages. Hopefully you may be tempted to read 1 or 2 of them yourselves. Happy Reading!
