June 2018 round up


This was a really good month, even if you don’t count the two children’s picture books I still managed 8 books. Next month might not be so great as Outlander is an 800+ page beast of a book!

  • Prophecies (Lost Slayer #1) – Christopher Golden
  • Dark Times (Lost Slayer #2)  – Christopher Golden
  • King of the Dead (Lost Slayer #3)  – Christopher Golden
  • Original Sins (Lost Slayer #4)  – Christopher Golden
  • The Graveyard Book – Neil Gaiman
  • Dead as a Doornail (Sookie Stackhouse #5) – Charlaine Harris
  • The Giving Tree – Shel Silverstein
  • Get Lost, Laura! – Jenny Northway
  • Definitely Dead (Sookie Stackhouse #6) – Charlaine Harris
  • The Princess Bride – William Goldman

I’m still reading:

  • All Together Dead (Sookie Stackhouse #7)
  • Outlander (Outlander #1) – Diana Gabaldon


  • Started Outlander series 2 (and ordered the first book from the library)
  • Taskmaster, both the new series and some repeats)
  • Murder She Wrote, as it was on at 6am on a Sunday and it reminded me I was having a re-watch, so I picked up again at the end of season 2.
  • And of course, still Hollyoaks
  • I have been subjected to the World Cup though I can’t say I’ve actually watched much, and I’ve watched more of Hey Duggee than I probably should, given it’s aimed at babies!


  • Returned to work! It has been fine, very little changed while I was off and Brodie has been having fun with his grandparents.
  • Taken Brodie to his first soft play centre and to the beach for the first time too.
  • Had a father’s day barbecue at my parents’ house
  • Enjoyed more sunshine than we usually get in the summer
  • Saw Steps (and also Blue and Bjorn Again) live in my own city, having my first night out since before Brodie was born.

    What I wanted to ask you for a long time: is the photo at the top with all the EB books from your book case? I’m delighted that from all possible FF books it contains “Secret Trail”. 🙂

      Yes, they are, Chrissie. Those were a random selection from my bookcase, I tried to get one from several major series as well as some stand-alones. I had to turn them upside down to get them neatly lined up – as they were all different heights – then rotated the photograph so they were the right way up again.
