I forgot this last month and then, as I was writing it up I thought does anyone really care what books I have read?
So, please tell me do you? Do you want to see the books and other posts I had, just books? This month I am doing just the books. I took a four day weekend in June and took all the Saturdays off! I also participated in The SUNDAY POST meme each week (except the one I took off) from Kimba the Caffeinated Reviewer. I had several giveaways but only one guest post. I also offered re-caps of the final episodes of Season 1 for OUTLANDER.
As of July I have stopped participating with online tour companies as a regular reviewer. By the way, any authors, publishers, agents or publicists who would like to guest post here should contact me personally through the contact form. Please take a moment to read my policy page. I am not taking any review requests for print books, only for audio. I am still reviewing print but have a huge backlog. I do not do purely promotional posts — material must be new, original and exclusive. I hate that this sounds adversarial; ugh! I get really frustrated with constant requests and people trying to get me to post their promo or cover.
I ONLY tally the books I have read and reviewed in the months of June in July. The list below has each title linked to the review.

I did have one book review that I did not write: Guest Reviewer FRENCH CONCESSION Xiao Bai. I have to thank my husband for doing this!
I listened to three books I may never get time to review:
JUST ONE DAMNED THING AFTER ANOTHER: The Chronicles of St Mary’s, Book 1 by Jodi Taylor
SIZE 12 AND READY TO ROCK, Heather Wells Mystery Series, Book 1, by Meg Cabot
COWGIRLS DON’T CRY by Lora Leigh
I would love to know if you, as a reader, like these tally posts, feel they should only be part of my Sunday Post, or do not want to see them at all. Many thanks for reading Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust!
