I was very excited to be accepted onto the blog tour for Late Whitsun by Jasper Kent. It’s been a while (for me anyway!) to have found the time to sit down with a good book. I’ve been very busy preparing for baby girl’s first Christmas!
So Late Whitsun is the first book in a new series featuring private detective Charlie Woolf. It’s set in Brighton in the 1930’s.
A few weeks back I was lucky enough to review The Book of Everyone which I personalised for my husband for Christmas ssshh! I know it will make an awesome present!
Now the people who made The Book of Everyone have another fun book out called Wise Words. I love the idea behind Wise Words. A fun gift for kids giving them a few words of advice!
Wise Words is the perfect book to give to your child. There are many phrases to choose from or there is the option for adding your own.
Now baby girl is finding books very interesting, I’m always keeping my eyes and ears open for new books for us to look at together. When I was asked if I wanted to join the blog tour for There’s Not One we were so excited.
I’m very pleased to be on the Zak and Jen’s Astronomical Adventures – Tinsel Town book tour. Tinsel Town is written by Natalie Page and illustrated by Chris Rivers Nuttall. It’s a fantastic children’s book in the Zak and Jen Astronomical Adventures series. Which started with The Petal Planet.
As you know we are huge book lovers. I’m sharing that love for books with baby girl. She might not yet understand what they are about but at 9 months old she love’s to turn the pages when we read together.
Best friends Zak and Jen love exploring space using their magic umbrellas. This time, they find a Christmas themed planet, but there is one thing missing, the inhabitants! Join the characters as they make some festive friends, and realise how important it is to appreciate every day. Tinsel Town is written for children over five years old, however younger children will also enjoy the rhythm of the story and its festive theme.
When I was about 10 years old I used to be into all the Nancy Drew mystery books and basically any adventure books I could get my hands on. I used to love going with my mum browsing around charity shops at all the books. We used to get some great books. Then Dad used to take us after school to our local library as well so I could top up my books every couple of weeks. Here I would save up my pocket money to buy the ex-library books. I would spend all day browsing in the library if I could!
Anyway onto the actual aim of this post. I have been given the chance to read and review a fab little mystery kids book called Mystery at the Ice Hotel it’s one of the Chasing Danger mystery books by Sara Grant. Totally my type of children’s book. I’m so excited to be on this book tour!
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve had a few spare ‘rare’ moments where I’ve picked up a book and a novella for reading. When I was asked if I wanted to review Let Them Eat Dirt by B Brett Finlay and Marie-Claire Arrieta, it was not a book I could turn down. I have always been interested in Science especially diseases, microbes and health since my biology teacher at school introduced me to cells! I do think in another lifetime I would have entered a career in the Science field. As a matter of fact it was only a couple of years ago that I had to stop doing my Open University degree in the Sciences due to limiting funds.
I have also been catching up on a little novella by Australian author Bridgett Leslie called Twelve Bells. If you love reading as much as I do but have limited time, novella’s are wonderful short stories that are perfect to fill a little gap.
