What I’ve read – July 2020

We had a brief moment of reprieve from lockdown where I was able to go and visit my nephews and share some books with them. It was wonderful to be able to sit on the couch with them and read a story or three.

I re-read a number of the new picture books I bought recently, such as those from New Frontier Publishing. One nephew is a budding artist and loved the illustrations in Ash Dresses Her Friends.

My three-year-old nephew shared Old Macdonald Had A Farm by Mandy Foot with me. It was one of his favourites at the time.

The other picture book I read was A Marvelous Authentic Kind-Hearted Educated and Unique Princess by A Star and Jasmine Mills. It’s not quite the same reading picture books as an eBook.

I finished listening to A Witch Alone and started listening to Murder on a Midsummer Night by Kerry Greenwood, a Phryne Fisher murder mystery.

Unfortunately, our lockdown reprieve didn’t last long… hopefully we’ll be out of lockdown again soon.

How was your reading in July?
