The Flower Girls by Alice Clark-Platts. When I read the initial synopsis of the book I was so intrigued I popped it straight on my list of books I wanted for my birthday. Low and behold the book fairy (aka my mum) granted my bookish wishes and brought me the books I wanted, and low... Continue Reading →

I was supposed to write a post for today, but instead I managed to get whisked away to the magical world of the Caraval by Stephanie Garber. After buying the book yesterday, I couldn't wait to sit and read it i WAS THRILLED to finally have a copy of it. I loved the first two... Continue Reading →

Doretha, also known though the book as "Dotty", is a young woman from a "good home". Her mother died when she was young, and so consequently she has been... Continue Reading →

Doughnuts and Coffee With You

She placed her coffee down on the table,And didn't lift her nose from her book, She didn't care who was around her, She didn't stop reading to look. He spotted her from the other side of the room, He decided to go and say hello, In his hand was another coffee, And a doughnut with icing sunflower yellow. He placed his handfuls...

I wasn't going to purchase any new books this year, until I have completed the endless mass of neglected books I already have. And then... I had a birthday. Whilst I didn't technically purchase any books myself, I was gifted a selection of books as it is something my family do every year. They always... Continue Reading →

The second book of the year that I have read is none other than Faithful by Alice Hoffmann. This is the first book by Hoffmann I have read, though I have a feeling it won't be the last. Though this book was marketed towards adult fiction, I would argue that it sits more with young... Continue Reading →

Surprise! Look what is making a comeback. Here we go again with the fairytale changeup. These fables and fairy tales were great when I was growing up because often they ended with a moral. It’s only now as I have gotten older that I’ve started to see the holes in some of the stories and realised... Continue Reading →

It is easy, when you love books, to start the year having set yourself targets to read more. Perhaps you have even put numerical claims out there about just how many books you are going to read.

I thought for today's 'Blog Every Day in October' I would do a "Tea and Talk" as I don't often just talk about things that have happened. So grab a cuppa tea sit down, relax and I'll answer some questions. If you fancy having a go at answering the questions I'll leave a blank copy... Continue Reading →

Books are wonderful things, whether they are fiction or non-fiction they are captivating and can hold your attention for a while. I do not think that there is much better than a good book. Which, is why it leaves me so unbelievably heartbroken when somebody comes along and just tells you how it ends. They... Continue Reading →

As I said in part one of this series, I love books (shocker) and I grew up reading fairytales. These fables and fairy tales were great when I was growing up because often they came with a moral. It's only now as I have gotten older that I've started to see the holes in some... Continue Reading →

So you spend your money and precious time reading a book. You fall in love with the main characters, the story. You can't put it down. You're captivated into this world which you fall in love with. Racing through the pages you need to know how it ends. There's a selfish desire for all your... Continue Reading →

I have done my fair share of reading in my years, there have been some books that I just can't stop talking about. Don't get me wrong I have disliked my fair share of books too but that is a discussion for another time. For now let's talk about all the books I love, well... Continue Reading →
