Summer has reached England’s green and pleasant land, and if you are thinking, ‘boy, you must be happy’, you would be wrong.
It’s like you don’t know me at all.
But seriously, why so hot? However, also, thank you for not being cold. There is no winning.
June was delightful, I’ve read some cracking books. Usually my desire to read cools over the warmer months (see what I did there) yet I’m looking forward to all there is to read in July. I’ve fallen in love with translated fiction, in fact I should dedicate June 2016 to it. Don’t let me forget (I’ll definitely forget).
