What Autumn Brings | Book Recs

Autumn, I feel, is finally here. The fact that I’m also sat here with a jumper, fluffy socks and hot water bottle, means i’m definitely feeling the change in weather. (Although why? I’m not really sure). I’ve been lucky enough to read quite a few review copies this month and last, and a few with […]

The Million Dollar Blog Tour | Things I wish I knew before I started Blogging

Moving away from my normal two day a week blog posts, I’m really excited to take part in the blog tour for Natasha Courtenay-Smith’s The Million Dollar Blog. Instead of writing a review post, we’ve been asked to write about our blogs. Either some tips and tricks, or generally what we wish we’d known then. […]

A Boy Made of Blocks | Building Bridges since 2016

This book made me laugh, cry and think throughout! This was on my TBR list and I’m so happy to be reviewing it. It’s nice to see it from a husbands point of view, and you can’t help but feel the pain experienced by Sam and his parents. And we all love a happy ending […]

Shining the Spotlight on… Lisa Clark | Self-Help Guru

I then found her Lola Love books, an amazing collection of self-help books for teenage girls. These books were seriously amazing! I loved reading through […]

A Peek at my Bookshelves | TBR | Hardbacks Edition

I’ve gotten to the point now where I’ve got quite a few books to read – both on my kindle, as a paperback and a couple of hardbacks. I didn’t really used to buy hardbacks, it’s only recently and more often than not it’s because I thought the cover was pretty… surely I’m not the […]

The Beekeeper’s Secret | Book’s with Sting

So I was going to post this on a beautifully, yet too warm, kind of day, but from sitting here it’s finally starting to look like Autumn – yay! Allen and Urwin were lovely enough to send me a copy of The Beekeeper’s Secret by Josephine Moon for Review. I also received some awesome goodies […]

Shining the Spotlight on… Phil Rickman

‘This is my attempt to do something different, because writers should. If you don’t, it’s just another day job. Merrily Watkins has what is very much a night job. She’s Deliverance Consultant or Advisor on the Paranormal for the Diocese of Hereford. Or Exorcist, as it used to be known. It’s a real job; there’s at […]
