Sunday Summary 25.06.2017

Hello my lovelies! Another week gone and another Sunday Summary from me to you! Slightly bare on the blog posts this week as it was a busy week!

Paper Butterflies  Cell 7

I’ve finished two books this weekend the first being the powerful and heartbreaking Paper Butterflies by Lisa Heathfield. I’ve owned this book for a long time but was never sure I was emotionally stable enough to read it. I don’t think anything could have prepared me for the amount of tears I shed! Then I devoured Cell 7 by Kerry Drewery in two sittings. This book has made me question a lot of things from social class to media influences. I’m going to start Day 7 this afternoon!

I’ve had a GREAT week for book post as it was my birhday on Thursday and I had lots of lovely presents from my bookish friends. I’m not going to post them here yet as I’ll soon be posting a birthday book haul post!

Mad Girl  Ash

I did however purchase a couple of books for my Kindle yesterday and I’m looking forward to reading them soon. I’ve had my eye on Mad Girl for a while now.

Progress is being made little by little! Every little counts and all that!

Paper Butterflies

Once in a while a book comes along that affects you in a way you never thought possible. Paper Butterflies is one of those books. Lisa Heathfield does not shy away from the horror of child abuse in this story but amongst the darkness there are such bright glimmers of hope. I never saw the ending coming at all and it blew me away and crushed me at the exact same time. I cried for the majority of the last 100 pages of this book. Phenomenal and oh so powerful.

My birthday was on Thursday and I still feel overwhelmed by how wonderful my day was. I was spoilt rotten by friends, family and work colleagues and spent the day with such a warm feeling in my heart. I enjoyed a lovely meal out with my family on the day and then spent Friday night eating lovely tapas and drinking fruity cocktails with my favourite ladies (followed by some rather outrageous dance moves, I might add!) It’s been such a glorious and happy week.

My brother (who clearly is the brother of all brothers) also treated me by giving me a £35 book token and I’m excited to go book shopping soon. I don’t know what I’m going to buy yet so if you have any suggestions please drop them in the comments!

Have a wonderful week! ❤

  1. Happy belated birthday Kelly!!!! glad to hear you had a great time ❤
    I just added Paper Butterflies to my TBR, never heard of it til' now & I am super intrigued now. Not sure why but after reading the synopsis it brought to mind Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios which i just finished reading last week & was rocked to my core. You're doing really well with your GR challenge, I recently changed mine from 100 to 50 cuz it was a bit overly ambitious lol. Happy reading ❤

    • Thanks Lilly!
      I’m glad you’ve added it to your tbr! It’s a harrowing read and uncomfortable at times but so worth it. I’ve not read Bad Romance, will have to check it out.
      Thanks! I read on the train to and from work so that helps! Hope you meet your target 💗

      • awesome, those are the types of books I actively seek out, the ones that make me uncomfortable because I walk away with a message. I also read on my long commute to & from work on train but I’m slower with physical books than I am with e-books, I hope you meet your target as well ❤

  2. Hi Kelly!
    Really enjoy your Sunday Summaries 😊
    Glad you had a great birthday. I didn’t make it far into Paper Butterflies as I found it so upsetting, but I do plan to try again another time. Also haven’t read Cell 7.
    This week has been pretty good reading wise for me, I feel like I’ve finished loads, which is brilliant as I’ve felt so SLOW recently (6 books : The Baking Life of Amelie Day, One of Us Is Lying, The Pearl in the Attic and St Grizzle’s School for Girls, Ghosts and Runaway Grannies, The Island at the End of Everything and Noah Can’t Even.
    I’ve written 3 blog posts; a review of Jack Dash and the Summer Blizzard, a post for the Harry Potter Moment of the Week meme (my favourite quote from Order of the Phoenix) and my June Book Haul.
    Hope you’re having a lovely weekend
    Amy x
