New Summer Book Releases

I love reading a good book in the summer. Just sitting in my back garden with a book in one hand and a cup of tea in the other is pure bliss. I like to read both paperback books and ebooks, but paper backs are my favourite. I just love the feel of the pages […]

My January Book Reviews

It’s been quite a few months since I last shared what I have been reading, so we are due a good catch up. In this post I will be sharing with you eight book reviews but I have read a few more, but I thought I would save those and share them in February’s post. […]

Lonely Planet Kids Books

I am a big fan of Lonely Planet Kids books. They have a wide range and are so interesting and amazing. We have recently received two books from them to review. We got Dinosaur Atlas by Anne Rooney and James Gilleard and How Animals Build by Moira Butterfield and Tim Hutchinson. Both are filled with […]

My July Book Reviews

I’ve just been so busy these last few months that I have been finding it hard to fit everything in. That’s why I must last months book reviews. Now normally through July and August I like to catch up on some of the paperbacks that are sitting on my book shelves waiting to be read. […]

My May Book Reviews

Well, well, well. What a terrible blogger I am. I started my monthly reads post last June and since then I have only done 3! Yes just 3. It’s been a year and I should have 12 of these posts up, but no, this one is only my third. Seriously, though, I don’t know where […]

We Love Scholastic Books

I have always loved reading, even when I was a child you would always find me with a book. I have always encouraged my kids to read and I love to buy them new books or lend books from the library. I am so happy that my 7-year-old daughter loves reading just as much as […]

Sneak Peek : Late Whitsun By Jasper Kent

  Late Whitsun – Blurb Brighton, 1938 … Charlie ‘Big Bad’ Woolf thought it would be easy money, and there’s precious little of that for a private detective in a seaside town. It was just a trip up to London to hand over an envelope – a favour for his old partner, Alan O’Connor. But […]

Our October Reads Book Review

our october reads book review

Well, so much for my monthly post of books! The last one I did was back in June and this today is only my second, so it’s been 4 months. To be honest, I haven’t read that much through the summer. I was looking forward to getting round to read some paperbacks that I have […]

Celebrating 100 Years Of Roald Dahl

Yesterday, the fantastic author Roald Dahl would have been 100 years old. I was asked to share this post with you on the day to celebrate, but like a doughnut, I got the dates mixed up and thought it was on Friday. I thought it was weird when the school sent all the parents a […]
