We have officially had our book club running for a year! Our online version started earlier than this but this last one was our twelfth session! This is super exciting and we are so happy we are growing and people are enjoying it as much as we are. We had such a fab little evening with regular book club goers and some newcomers too! The book was George by Alex Gino, a middle grade book about a transgender girl wanting to be seen as a girl by others too. Continue reading “LGBTQ+ Book Club Night 12 – George”
I’ve wanted to write a post about children’s books for a while since my nephew, Seth, owns a TON of books. He’s just less than 2 years old and likes a whole bunch of different books. I love reading to him and so do many other people in my family. He loves to cuddle up with us whilst we read to him and has his favourite books that he constantly brings to us even when we’ve just walked in the house! Here’s a few of my favourites that he owns.

Tom Fletcher seems like the man of many (many) talents at the moment.

The illustrated edition of Harry Potter and The Chamber Of Secrets has recently been released. It was announced last year that a new illustrated edition of the novels will be released over the next seven years, one a year. 2015 saw the release of The Philosophers Stone and 2016 we have had The Chamber Of Secrets. These novels are the perfect addition to any Harry Potter lovers book shelf. I received mine in the post yesterday so here’s a little sneak peek of what’s inside.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that the world went crazy over the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. We also all turned to our bookshelves and made space for the next seven of them (am I right?) We all knew that there would be a new illustrated book hitting the shelves this year, but we were not expecting the art work to be released this early!
Camp Midnight is the story of Skye who gets sent off to summer camp when her stepmother can’t deal with having her around. Little does Skye know that the camp comes alive at night with monsters, or the other camp goers! Skye doesn’t fit in with the others when they turn from their human form to their monster form and makes friends with Mia, another girl who feels very left out in camp.
