Monthly Wrap Up | July 2022

July has been a very slow month in terms of both reading and blogging for me this year. I was on holiday for the first half of the month, and it was so good to travel again! Between that and jet lag though, I only got through a couple of lighter reads, albeit interesting ones. Let’s take a look!


10 Books

2,126 Pages

Goodreads Challenge Progress: 80/150


Book of the Month

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Violet is the Royal Seer of the kingdom of Auveny and she uses her ability to see the threads of Fate to divine the future – and also people’s pasts – to make predictions, and occasionally less than truthful or twisted prophecies that allow her to influence the court.

But when the King asks her to prophesy Prince Cyrus’ future, a suitable love story that will convince the prince to pick a bride and head off a dreadful prophecy hanging over his head and the well being of the kingdom. Except Violet and Cyrus kind of hate each other and she may have lied in her last foretelling about him finding his true love.

Violet accidentally awakens a curse that could mean the end of the kingdom if Cyrus makes the wrong choice, but she faces a choice of her own that could have equally deadly consequences.
