You know sometimes you just need to read a light hearted book to bring a smile to your face. Well Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings by Wendy Holden is just that. Witty, fun and down right full of entertainment!
I was lucky enough to be sent a beautiful hardback copy to read and review from Head of Zeus, plus you have the chance to win your very own copy as well. First though, here is a little bit about Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings.
She’ll need a triple-barrelled name for the castle one. She’ll need a gallon of glitter for the woodland one. She’ll need a lobster-shaped hat for the Shoreditch one.
Laura Lake longs to be a journalist. Instead she’s an unpaid intern at a glossy magazine – sleeping in the fashion cupboard and living on canapés. But she’s just got her first big break: infiltrate three society weddings and write a juicy exposé.
Security will be tighter than a bodycon dress, but how hard can it be? Cue disappearing brides, demanding socialites – and a jealous office enemy who will do anything to bring her down…
As a kid I was obsessed with The Wizard of Oz. Saturday afternoons we used to love to watch The Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland. It was one of those family favourites that you can watch over and over again.
So when I was presented with the opportunity to read and review The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum it was a given! No way was I going to refuse this one!
Here is a little bit about the book:
“He is more powerful than all the rest of us together. He lives in the City of Emeralds.”
Blown far way from her home to the magical land of Oz, little Dorothy must follow the yellow-brick road to the Emerald City and ask the Great and Powerful Wizard of Oz for help. With the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion by her side, Dorothy must first defeat the Wicked Witch of the West – but will the Wizard’s magic be enough to get her home?
Hello, today I’m on the blog tour for Jim Ody’s The Place That Never Existed. I was hooked on the blurb as it’s based in Devon, practically in the middle of no-where, and fairly local to me.
For Paul and Debbie it was meant to be the happiest time of their lives – a small village wedding in front of their family and friends, followed by a quiet honeymoon in Devon. Not everyone was happy to see them together.
Someone from the past was intent on ending their marriage before it had really started. Now, supposedly away from it all in a picturesque log cabin, Paul and Debbie find themselves in the midst of mysterious happenings. Unexplained disappearances with people turning up dead, and all of it centred on the site of an horrific murder.
A place the locals wish was a place that never existed.
Hello, I hope you had a great week.
Today I’m on the blog tour for Under the Love Umbrella by Davina Bell and illustrated by Allison Colpoys. My first thought is what a wonderful eye-catching cover for a children’s book.
Whatever you fear, come close my dear
You’re tucked in safe for always here
And I will never not be near
Because of our love umbrella
From this award-winning creative duo comes a book about the wonder of ever-present love. A stunning celebration of the joy and comfort that is always with us, wherever we roam in the big, wild world.
Who’s under your Love Umbrella?
You know me and how much I love books, right?
Well when I was offered to review a kids book with a little difference and a story to be told, I couldn’t say no. TJ and his Wheelable Chair by Amanda Kehoe is a wonderful picture book explaining to children that disabilities are not a barrier to living a happy life.
The story is written by Amanda Kehoe, who gave up work to care for her son Tadhg on a full-time basis after he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and global developmental delay at 10 months old.
TJ cannot walk or talk, but he still loves to listen and play with his friends. Join him as he shows that disabilities are no barrier to a happy and fulfilling life…
