★ Reading Round Up #3 ★

12 August 2019

 It's that time of the month where I share with you what I read over the last month! I didn't get loads of reading done but I am still happy due to not reading a lot during May and June. I managed to finish two books and I had almost finished my third and I thouroughly enjoyed all of them! I'm so happy to finally have my reading mojo back, so lets get to what books I read in July...
'If You Could Go Anywhere' - Paige Toon ♥♥♥♥♥/5
Angie has always wanted to travel. But at 29, she still has still never left her small mining town in Australian outback. When her grandmother passes away, Angie finally feels free to see the world - until she discovers a letter addressed to the father she never knew and it forced to question everything. As angie sets off on her journey to find the truth - about her family, her past and who she really is - will enigmatic stranger Alessandro help guid the way? 
I absolutely love Paige Toon as an author. In fact, she is the author that contributed getting back onto the reading scene again many moons ago! Though I haven't read all of her books - though I am slowly trying too! - the ones I have read I absolutely love and this book is no different. I fell in love with the story almost as soon as I opened it! Something I loved was learning about Coober Pedy! I hadn't even heard of it until I picked this book up and now I know it's going to be a destination I want to visit when Matt and I travel there eventually! I also really enjoyed following the story of Angie and discovering her other family from across the globe. The brewing romance between Angie and a certain someone was also great. I am a big fan of slow brewing romances as it keeps me on my toes and I just find the whole experince really exciting. Overall I really enjoyed this book and I also think Paige did wonderfully approaching the subjects of demntia and depression.

'I Heart New York' - Lindsey Kelk ♥♥♥♥.5/5
Fleeing her cheating boyfriend and clutching little more than a crumpled bridemaid dress, a pair of Louboutines and her passport, Angela jumps on a plane, destination - NYC. Holded up in a cute hotel room, Angela gets a New York makeover from her NBFJenny and a whirlwind tour of the city that never sleeps. Before she knows it, Angela is dating two sexy guys. And, best of all, she gets to write about it in her new blog. But it's one thing telling readers about your romantic dilemmas, it's another figuring them out for yourself... 

I mentioned 'I Heart New York' in my Summer Reading List as it was a book/series I wanted to pick up and start! I am so glad I have finally started this book series as the first book was so good! I was hooked from the first page wanting to know what Angela was going to do next! It was so lovely reading a story with such a strong and empowering character. I was a little worried when I knew there was going to be a love triangle involved but Lindsey executed it really well. I didn't think Angela was being too indecisive - some characters can be so annoying with their indecisivness but Angela was thankfully not! I really loved the other characters too! Especially Jenny and Alex - heart throb alert! This book has made me want to jump on a plane to New York as it just sounds amazing and I know I'll love it. I couldn't not pick up the next book after finishing this one as like I said, I was hooked!
There are a few books I would like to get to this month and they are mainly contemporary! I swear, when the warmer months arrive my romance/contemporary intake increases so much!

I Heart Hollywood by Lindsey Kelk - This was the book I almost finished last month but didn't. I looved the first book so much that I just had to pick up the second instantly. So far I am really enjoying this book and I can't wait to see where Angela's Hollywood adventure takes her!

Lucy in the Sky by Paige Toon - I really enjoyed 'If You Could Go Anywhere' so now I really want to read all of Paige Toon's books but I want to do it in publication order as all her stories link slightly!

The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell - I have heard so many great reviews about this book! It sounds like it's right up my street and seeing as I have been reading a lot of contemporary romance novels it will be nice to get to a mythical/fantasy book this month!

One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid  - This book sounds really interesting! I would say it sounds like a tragic love story and who doesn't love a bit of drama?! I mentioned this book on my Summer Reading List and so I really hope I get to it this month.

There you have my latest reading roundup and this months TBR. I really hope to read at least half of these books I have mentioned. My goal is to read all four but if I manange just two or three I'll be chuffed. Have you read any of the books I have mentioned? What did you think of them? or do you plan on reading any of these books too?

  3. I Heart New York sounds like the cheesy, teen romance books I read in junior high...and I love it!! I haven't read a book like that in SO LONG, so that's gone straight to my TBR, and I'm excited to indulge in it whenever I get round to picking it up :)
