June round-up

Hi all! I'm back from a week-long blogging break and thought I'd start my sharing my (slightly late) June round-up with you all! 

Books I've won:
Thanks to Shaun at Book Addict Shaun, I won 3 paperbacks of my choice. There were some fab options but in the end I chose: Summer at Shell Cottage by Lucy Diamond, The Oyster Catcher by Jo Thomas and The Life I Left Behind by Collete McBeth

I also won an e-book copy of  30 first dates by Stacey Wiedower

Books I've received: 

The Dandelion Years by Erica James 

A Year of Marvellous Ways by Sarah Winman
In Their Shoes - Fairytales and Folktales

Books I've read this month: 
The Dish, Stella Newman
Summer at Shell Cottage, Lucy Diamond *
The Life I Left Behind, Collete McBeth*
The Oyster Catcher, Jo Thomas *
First One Missing, Tammy Cohen
Dream A Little Dream, Giovanna Fletcher  *

As June kick-started Paperback Summer, I read a lot more paperbacks than e-books this month. The titles with a star next to them are paperbacks and I'll be doing a big Paperback Summer post at the end of August.  

Book of the month
As usual, this month was filled with fantastic reads. A special shout-out goes to Rebecca Pugh, her debut novel Return to Bluebell Hill was bloody brilliant! 

As usual though I had to pick a book of the month and this month that is..... 

Summer at Shell Cottage by Lucy Diamond!
