Last year I was lucky enough to have the chance to read Christmas at Woolworths by Elaine Everest. Now I’m back having read her latest book – A Gift From Woolworths. Like it’s predecessor, A Gift From Woolworths is one of those festive curl up on the sofa with a hot chocolate reads. Before I share my review, here is a little about this wonderful book.
I love getting stuck into a good book, I don’t have as much time as I like to read. But when I do I pick my reads carefully. My latest one is The Soldier’s Girl by Sharon Maas. In fact I’m pleased to say I’m on the blog tour and today is my stop. As always I like to share a bit about the book and my thoughts.
Today it’s turn to be on the blog tour for Closer by KL Slater. The first thing about Closer that made me want to read it was the striking cover. It’s bold, yet dark. Intriguing and mysterious. So was the book as good as the cover? Read on to find out!
Book Description of Closer by KL Slater
I know my daughter better than I know myself and if there’s one thing I know for sure at this moment: it’s that Maisie is not ok.
My ex-husband Shaun and I are still friends.
We would do anything for our beautiful little girl, Maisie.
But now Shaun has moved in with Joanne and suddenly, Maisie has a brand new family.
And there’s something not quite right about it…I know Joanne isn’t everything she says she is. Yet no-one will listen.
I need to discover what she’s hiding.
Because if I don’t, my daughter will be in terrible danger.
Today I’m on the blog tour for The Tissue Veil by Brenda Bannister. The Tissue Veil is a story of two teenagers living in the same East end property, but 100 years apart. I have an extract below for you to read over. It is really good!
What if you discovered a hundred-year-old diary under your floorboards – and then found references in it to yourself? Or if you lived in 1901, yet kept seeing glimpses of a girl from modern times? And what if both of you had problems that only the other could really understand? Emily and Aysha live in the same Stepney house and an inexplicable link develops between them, fuelled by Aysha’s discovery of a journal and Emily’s sightings of a ‘future ghost’. Each takes courage from the other’s predicament – after all, what’s a hundred years between friends?
Today I’m on the blog tour for Chasing Ghosts by Madalyn Morgan. A book that is different, set after World War 2 but still with the fears and emotions.
Read on for my review and the chance to win a signed copy.
The blog tour is running from the 8th until 14th October.
Happy Monday! Today it’s my turn to be on the blog tour for Guess My Name with Veggies and Fruits by Liana Strat. A fun little picture book on naming veggies and fruit, helping toddlers and preschoolers with learning their fruit and vegetables.
Read on to see what we thought.
