I love a good quiz. Especially when its general knowledge questions. I got to say my husband is way better at general knowledge than me though. I find these questions a great chance to learn new facts.
Brown’s publishers recently got in contact asking if I wanted to check out their new general knowledge quiz book and run a giveaway with them.
Today it’s my turn on the blog tour for The Girl in the Pink Raincoat by Alrene Hughes. I’m hosting a review and giveaway of this wartime saga set in Manchester in a raincoat factory.
When a factory girl and a Jewish businessman fall in love it seems that the whole world is against them.
Manchester, 1939. On the eve of war Gracie Earnshaw is working in Rosenberg’s Raincoat factory – a job she hates – but her life is about to be turned upside down when she falls in love with Jacob, the boss’s charismatic nephew.
Through Jacob, with his ambitions to be a writer, Gracie glimpses another world: theatre, music and prejudice. But their forbidden romance is cut short when Jacob is arrested and tragedy unfolds.
Today It’s my turn for the blog Tour of Grandma Z by Daniel Gray-Barnett. A wonderful debut children’s book that will appeal to everyone.
On an ordinary day, in an even more ordinary town, it was Albert’s birthday.
When Grandma Z roars into town on her motorcycle, Albert is swept up in a very extraordinary adventure. Life may never be the same again!
This glorious debut from Daniel Gray-Barnett is filled with wonder, imagination, and a wild, magical spirit that will thrill young and old.
Today it’s my turn to be on the blog tour for The Distance Between Us by Georgie Capron. Before you read my review here is a little about this fantastic read.
Tasha knows that she should count her blessings: married for eleven years, mother to three healthy children, she should be content with her lot. However, feelings of frustration have settled over her like a dark cloud. Despite living under the same roof and sharing the same bed, Tasha has never felt so distant from her husband, Charlie. She feels worn down by the mental load of motherhood, drowning in the never-ending chores that keep the family and household afloat. Most of all she worries that her once happy marriage is slipping away from her.
Tasha longs for something to change, but when change comes calling will it really be the answer she was hoping for? And is it possible to fall in love with the same person twice?
Check out our book this week for #BookReviewMondays
Our latest book we have been reading is called Max, Mouse and the Doll’s House by Christine Johnson. Now I’m reading to two of them. Baby dottie is more alert now as she’s growing at nearly 9 weeks old, and baby girl is taking lots of interest in books now. I often see her sitting down with a book, chatting away to herself and pointing at the pictures.
Before you get to our review, here is a little bit about Max, Mouse and the Doll’s House….
