Not sure where July has gone and I thought June had gone fast. It's time to share what I've been reading the past month and I've found that I've got my reading mojo back.

I've managed to tick off 5 more prompts for the popsugar reading challenge and read 2 books outside of the challenge too.

Ten poems of Kindness by Jackie Kay
I started the month with a short 28 page book filled with 10 wonderful poems of kindness. It's important to be kind especially as you don't know what someone maybe going through.

Never Forget by Michel Bussi
This was for a book tour which you can read about here. However if you don't have time to read that post it's a crime/physiological thriller.

Heart so Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer
I ticked this off for the prompt a book with a map. I'm getting into the fantasy genre alot more and this one is the second in the series of a modern Beauty and the Beast. I personally enjoyed the first one A Curse so Dark and Lonely much more but this was still a good read.

Half a world away by Mike Gayle
This is my first read by Mike Gayle and I've now added more of his books to my book wishlist on Amazon. Half a world away is about two siblings that went into care and have different upbringings. I wont go into much more detail but it was definitely worth the hype, I had heard about it. The propt I used this for was a book reccomended by your favourite blogger/vlogger/podcast/online book club. I'm in a few book related groups on Facebook and this one has been mentioned alot and was a pick one month in the Claire McIntosh book club.

Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi
I love it when a prompt makes me find a book I'd have never had opted for otherwise and this was one of them. This was for the prompt a book set in Japan. I really enjoyed this read which features time travel as the main topic. The concept of the story was interesting and I'm glad I chose this one for the prompt.

The Choice By Claire Wade
Described as a distopion novel the choice is about a prime minister who comes into power and lives are in constant fear due to the strict rules in place. Sugar is banned, baking is a crime and the government monitor what you eat. I picked this for the prompt a book with an upside down image but this can be used for the prompt a book by or about a world leader but I've another book for that prompt. 

Old Baggage by Lissa Evan's
Picked for the prompt a book set in the 1920s. Old baggage is based in 1928 and tells the story of Matilda Stimpkin who was a suffragette in her youth who was jailed five times.
