We’re halfway through the year! Australia is currently in a weird situation, with various Local Government Areas in various states of lockdown, and my own state dealing with its first mask mandate, in spite of no current community transmission. Everything feels like it’s in a state of flux, but in amidst all of that, the books are still there for us.

I have a YouTube channel where I promote Australian books using the hashtag #AusReads, and also indulge my compulsion for signing up to readathons. Here are the latest videos:
FAVOURITE BOOKISH PHOTO:
Despite good intentions, I actually didn’t post any bookish photos on Instagram in June. They were all related to my writing, but I don’t think that should stop me from sharing one here, should it? The snippets I’ve been sharing have all been from my current urban fantasy project, Lucy Williams Is A Witch. This line is spoken by Lucy’s mentor, Grace, when she shows Lucy her potion book for the first time.
You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.
I don’t actually have anything on the go at the moment. I finished An Unforeseen Demise earlier today and am yet to start anything. I’ve been doing pretty well at keeping to just one book at a time, and I haven’t been in the mood for audio books, so nothing there either.
PLANNING TO READ NEXT:
I will soon be starting Ariadne by Jennifer Saint for book club. It’s been on my radar for a while, but I admit the book club factor is the only reason I’m getting onto it this soon. I honesty have no idea what to expect from it or whether I will like it. I guess we’ll see!
