Blogmas Book Review: Kiss Me In New York by Catherine Rider

After Christmas at the Little Knitting Box which was set in New York, I thought I’d follow it up with an other New York themed book: Kiss Me In New York.  I’ve never been to New York on Christmas (or any other time that is), but it’s certainly something I want to do one of these days. The city…

Book Review: Rules (Little School by the Sea) by Jenny Colgan

I haven’t read a series in a very long time. So reading Jenny Colgan’s book Rules, which is the second book in her Little School by the Sea series, was an eye-opener. Reading series can be really fun, can’t it? 🙂 Again, I want to keep the review rather short. If you want to know more, just tell…
