Reviewing The Silly Book of Weird and Wacky Words

I love this book, it’s really funny and Andy Seed has written others that accompany it- of of which i can’t wait to read!

I found this book very entertaining, i borrowed it a number of times from the library and then ended up with it at Christmas- i couldn’t have been more thrilled. I find that i quote it a lot!


Reviewing Dork Diaries: Frenemies Forever

Firstly i would like to start off by saying that i am a big fan of the Dork Diaries series and i always look forward to the next instalment in the story. This time is no exception as once i had finished the book the rush of ‘oh goodness i’ve already read it’ and ‘i need the next one now’ washed over me!

Secondly, the book ‘Frenemies Forever’ was amazing; the twist on the relationship between MacKenzie and Nikki was very entertaining, it was nice to see that even bullies can get bullied and that at the end of the day they genuinely have real feelings, that can often be hurt very deeply too! I actually felt for MacKenzie which i didn’t think was ever possible!

Although the status quo was resumed at the end of the book, i thoroughly enjoyed the ride and i’m interested to see how the two interact with each other from here on in.


Reviewing The Witches of Fairhollow High: The New Girl

I NEED the next book NOW!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading New Girl (The Witches of Fairhollow High), i felt a deep kindred spirit with both Nessa and Holly as we share a lot of similar traits, hobbies and beliefs.

I was completely taken by the story and found myself getting annoyed, sad or happy when our protagonist did.

I was riled repeatedly by ‘the bullies’ actions in the book which i felt were written very truthfully even with a magical premise, i could relate that very easily to real life bullies and that made some parts quite suspenseful/ intense.

I will most certainly be looking out for the next book in the series as i genuinely couldn’t put this one down and i am ready to find out what has been happening in Fairhollow High since the events of this book.  Roll on book 2!

Thank you to Egmont and Toppsta for my copy of this book.


Reviewing The Thornthwaite Inheritance

Well what can i say about this book?!

When Gareth P Jones walked into his literary agent and said i’m writing a book about twins that are endlessly trying to kill each other he set off a chain of events that had me gripped from the very beginning, interested and engaged throughout.

It was cleverly written and i really enjoyed how the plot unfolded.

I’ve just borrowed the second book in the series from the library and i am ready to find out what our favourite feuding twins have been up to!!


Reviewing Lucy’s Winter Rescue

I thought this was a really sweet story, i’d certainly be interested in reading more by Anne Booth and i thought that Sophy Williams illustrations encapsulated the story beautifully, they were a piece of art in their own right!

Easy enough to read in one sitting i would recommend this book for adults reading to younger children, or children who are comfortable enough to read on their own.


Reviewing The League of Unexceptional Children: Get Smart-ish

This is the second book in the series ‘The League of Unexceptional Children’, unfortunately i haven’t read the first one in the series so can not comment on how the story progresses from the initial meeting of the protagonists to where we find them in this book however i can say that i thoroughly enjoyed this book, i will definitely look out for the first one and any more that are yet to come.

I thought the book was clever and interesting and quite funny. I would recommend it to anyone, the premise is unlike anything i’ve read before and i like that the plot seemed quite fresh.


Reviewing Factfeed

Factfeed is basically and quite honestly my favourite non fiction book at the moment, i had this book out perpetually from the library during 2016 and received a copy over Christmas which i have been reading and quizzing everyone with again!

The book is full of lots of random lists of facts which are all in bitesize and memorable chunks which is great if you enjoy tid bits of information, completely random information and finding out what can out run Usain Bolt!!

I love this book, it’s incredibly informative and lots of fun. I would highly and i do mean highly recommend it. I loved it so much my Mummy ended up reading it after me… and my favourite librarian too! 


Read for 15- West Orchards Campaign

I spent October sharing images of myself reading books, in the various weird and wacky places that i often do with West Orchards Shopping Centre for their #readfor15 campaign to encourage children and adults to spend 15 minutes a day reading. I know, only 15 minutes! But it’s better than nothing though.

They ran a competition along side this and i’m really happy to say that i won a voucher to spend at W H Smith which i used to buy a years subscription to my favourite newspaper, First News.
