June Wrap Up

_________________________________. . .Dreams.. Nightmares.. Realities.. .

June has been a great month for me, not only because it's been the start of summer but because I've read some fabulous books, finished my first blogoversary celebration week and got started on my first job freelancing for a UK publishing company, which is very exciting. I can't wait for the end of July then because then I'll be on school holidays =)

Tempest Rising by Tracey Deebs (review coming soon)
The Rouge's Princess by Eve Edwards (reviewing coming soon)

  1. I love the sneaker picture! I actually own sneakers like that :)
    I'm looking forward to hearing what you think about Tempest Rising, it looks great.

  2. Freelancing for a UK publisher?? That sounds awesome, tell me more!

  3. @Hahah yes- they're very cool :) I loved Tempest Rising- it's one of the best mermaid books I've read!

    @Danya Thanks for asking! Well, I won a young writers competition that the publisher (Sunpenny Publishing) held a few years ago and the lady that runs the company got chatting with my mum on email and they're expanding the business so they offered me a job doing the social networking side and training me up as a manuscript reader as I go through school. So it's going to be a challenging adventure but one that will help me get experience in publishing for when I'm 18! I probably wouldn't have had the chance if it wasn't for blogging so I'm so grateful to the book blogging community for teaching me so much over the past year :D

  4. Looks like was great reading month!

    Hows the new job going? :)

  5. Argh I'm so jealous you got to read Haunting Violet! Can't wait t hear what you think of it :)

  6. Oh wait you've already reviewed it! I'm looking forward to reading it even more now that I know the love triangle isn't THAT pronounced :) I always feel torn whenever there are two equally awesome guys in a book haha.

  7. Forgive My Fins is definitely in the top books released =)
    Loved it!
    Loves the pictures at the top

  8. Very cool you got that opportunity, that'll be awesome experience for you!


I love comments, they make me smile! So thank you for taking the time to write one, I read all of them.
I try my best to reply here or on your blog :)
