Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Want My Children To Read

Imagine sitting on a rocking chair, a child on your knees, reading them a story. Isn’t the picture beautiful? It is no secret that I’m a big fan of books. So naturally, the thought of passing this love on to my own children is a pretty sweet one. Which is why I loved this week’s…

5 Picture Books for Teaching (English)

I love incorporating picture books into my language classes, which is why I usually start my lessons with a story. But since finding suitable picture books can sometimes be a bit hard, I came up with a list of 5 books that are perfect for teaching.

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…

Top Ten Tuesday: Leader Characters

For this weeks’ Top Ten Tuesday, The Broke and The Bookish are prompting us to come up with a list of ten characters that could lead pretty much anything. I’ve decided to dedicated my list to my favourite strong female leader characters. I love any book with a strong female character. One that knows what…

November Book Haul and TBR

October was a bit of a spending month for me. I don’t really care, but my bank account begs to differ. So I want to apologize. I’m sorry, bank account for emptying you. But my love for books seems to be stronger than my love for money. Plus, I needed a few good ones for…

Autumn Readathon Wrap Up

I was considering whether I was even going to do an Autumn Readathon wrap-up as my reading last week wasn’t that out-standing. Mercedes from MercysBookishMusings might be as disappointed with me, as I am. But, since the books I did manage to read are outstanding and deserve to be written about, I’m going to do…

Finally Fall Book Tag

Sarah from Sarah The Reader tagged me to do the Finally Fall Book Tag which was originally created by Alina from Tall Tales. I know that fall is almost over, but since it is my favourite season and I’m not quite ready to let it go just yet, I thought I’d do the tag anyway.…

5 Reasons To Read More

In our fast-paced lives, reading and books are often forgotten. No one has time to sit down and read for a while. We are always on the go. And if by any chance we should ever have a minute to ourselves, we are often too tired to pick up a book. So we just turn…

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

I’m a big Jenny Colgan fan. So it felt like heaven when I discovered her Little School by the Sea series. Sadly there are only two books out yet. Can’t wait for more! But while I do, I thought I’d write you a short review of the first book Class so you can share the excitement with…

Top Ten Tuesday: Unique Book Titles

It’s Tuesday! Which means it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday post from me. This week, The Broke and the Bookish prompted us to come up with ten unique book titles and for some reason I found it really hard to come up with a good list. I was about to say that I’m not much…
