No Spend March

Are you sitting down? You should be because I have a confession to make: I am a book addict. Shocker, isn’t it? They really don’t make them better than me. I’ve known it for a while, but re-organizing my bookshelves the other day made it painfully obvious. The sad thing is, I seem to hoard…

Book Review: Christmas at The Little Knitting Box

Would you just look at the cover of the book, please? Isn’t it reason enough to buy and read Christmas at The Little Knitting Box? I’m a big fan of Christmas reads and that’s why I’m thrilled to kick of my Blogmas a bit early this year with Christmas at The Little Knitting Box. It’s only once…

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’m Thankful For

What a lovely prompt the girls over on The Broke and the Bookish came up with! I love their Top Ten Tuesday lists as they always make for great new reading inspiration. And this week, the my list is full of favourites of mine. So. Since it’s Thanksgiving time over in the US this week,…

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…

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…

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.…

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…

Book Review: The Vintage Summer Wedding by Jenny Oliver

What a lovely, lovely book. It’s books like The Vintage Summer Wedding by Jenny Oliver that make me want to talk about books. But they also make the whole writing a good review kind of hard because there’s nothing to complain about. 🙂   What the The Vintage Summer Wedding is about Anna has screwed up big…
