I was put off by this novel for a long time. Just before the release and shortly after, it was being made a very big deal of online, and i wasn’t quite sure why. Admittedly, i knew nothing about it anyway. I’d never read the back of it or never picked up a copy in store (i think it was the garish pink that put me off!) but one day, i put a copy in my basket and that was it. It was advertised a lot while we were at YALC this year, and i knew i had a copy at home, but i still wasn’t in the mood to pick it up and read it. Until one day, i was choosing a book to read and Under Rose-Tainted Skies came in to my eye line.

I think i’m going to revert back to doing monthly book hauls, instead of my ‘mini book haul’s that i’ve been doing more recently. This makes more sense instead of putting hauls up every so often, you can all expect one at the end of the month! I am still officially on a book buying ban, but the deal is, if anything is released that is 1) Harry Potter, 2) by The Fletcher’s i’m allowed to buy or pre-order it. So obviously my dad takes advantage of this and has a ‘free book day’ meaning we can buy books on the release date! So i’ve taken advantage of that this July, along with some of the presents that i’ve had for graduation! Here’s all the books that i got in the month of July.

I’ve had an awful reading month. There i’ve said it. I’ve been somewhat in a reading slump, along with events such as my graduation happening and i’ve been on holiday for a few days, i’ve just had very very little time to read. It feels like i’ve constantly been starting books to try and get them read before YALC, but not finishing any of them! Here’s what i’ve read anyway.

Over here at the Little Contemporary Corner we really love Carrie Hope Fletcher. So as you can imagine with the release of her new novel imminent, we’re pretty much waking up excited every morning. There’s just so much goddamn talent in that Fletcher family!

At the end of 2015 the online book world literally went crazy as tickets for the stage play of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child went on sale. Luckily myself and Sophie managed to secure tickets (we’re not going together though, boooo) and our Harry Potter elation was at an all-time high. Today however I’m sure everyone’s heard that the script of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is being released as a book on Harry’s birthday this year along with a collectors edition to follow on later! Such excitement, much happy!
