*I was kindly gifted a copy of this book by the publisher.
This is one of the middle-grade books i’ve had my eye on for quite some time. I remember back in Feburary almost picking this up in a train station book shop (remember those things?!) and then immediately regretting not doing. It slipped out from my mind for a while until we announced our Crime readthon, hosted with Lois, and the lovely Charlie at Little Tiger offered to send us a copy to review.
Septemeber has seemed like a hectic month! I feel as though i’ve barely gotten any reading done, and what i have read hasn’t been top tier incredible for me. But i managed to get my hands on some exciting review books in September, and our readathon has been announced for October, so i’m sure i’ll get plenty of reading done in October.
We’re very fond of a small bookish independant business over here, especially once that smells incredible and has the most adorable packaging. I want to share with you some new products i’ve found by a company called Bookshelf Burns. You can catch them over on INSTAGRAM. This post is not sponsored, however i have been gifted the products i am talking about.
I’ve officially been in my house for over a month now, as i hope most of us have been. It’s a weird feeling, and not something you can really describe. But we’ve all had a little bit more time to be getting on with things, so i wanted to let you know what i’ve been up to!
I had the most bookish day on leap year possible. It was filled with book shopping, book chats, bookish friends and events. Myself and Lois made our way to Liverpool for the day for a bookish best friend day, and honestly it was absolutely wonderful and incredibly pure.
Happy book haul! I’ve been on a little bit of a buying ban for a while – i say a while, i really mean it’s been about six weeks – and i’m back with another haul, a haul that definitely shouldn’t have been a haul. I was determined to not buy books, read from my back list and be really good at the moment. That hasn’t happened and i’m back in a tricky place with my TBR and the fact that it’s huge.
