You can never have too many books, although I do need to spend some time reorganising my bookshelves before I go back to work next week. Y'see, I had some pennies and vouchers left under my Christmas tree and so it would have been rude not to buy seven new books, right? Feast your eyes… Continue reading A post-Christmas book haul
Wondering what to buy a two-year-old for Christmas? These days, Peppa Pig and Twirlywoos are the favourites in our house. When you're shopping for little ones it's got to be books and toys, right? We finished shopping for Jenson a while back and his presents pretty much consist of Peppa Pig, Duplo, books and a… Continue reading Jenson’s Christmas list 2017
The list of books I want to read grows by the day but I'm not going to include them all in this wish list. Instead, I'm focusing on gorgeous covers and special editions, as well as some rather fun accessories. Anne of Green Gables: V&A Collector's Edition, £9.98 | The Secret Garden: V&A Collector's Edition,… Continue reading A bookworm’s wish list
When I was Christmas shopping in Truro a few backs I popped into Waterstones, as you do, and marvelled at the festive paperbacks. I fell for these beautiful editions of Poirot - The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding and Hercule Poirot's Christmas. Aren't they just the perfect stocking fillers for bookworms? I have to admit,… Continue reading Item of the day: Poirot from Waterstones
Have you seen the new series of Enid Blyton spoofs? I've gotta read Five Go Parenting - it looks hilarious and perfect for a bookworm raised on Blyton. It's £5.99 from Waterstones.
I was going to dedicate last week's Friday Favourites to my Christmas shopping trip but sleep has proved a bigger priority than writing over the last few days and I've also been trying to free up some storage; it seems I've reached the limit on WordPress' free storage capacity. This could be the kick up… Continue reading Christmas shopping in Truro
Yep, this is a weird one from me because I'm not a fan of Zoella but oh em gee her lifestyle range is freakin' awesome, especially the stationery (check out her stationery book and pencils), but in particular this adorable journal. I have to give my friend Heather a shout out for introducing me to… Continue reading Item of the day: Zoella journal from Waterstones
I'm a sucker for beautiful books and the latest edition of The BFG is no exception. I want, nay, need, the full Roald Dahl collection (I only have The Twits at the mo - my fave) but this edition of The BFG definitely needs to be bought as a stand-alone copy. The dust jacket may… Continue reading Item of the day: The BFG from Waterstones
Instagram is a wonderful thing but it doesn't half increase my wish lists! I spotted this beautiful edition of Peter Pan on Waterstones' Instagram and it just screamed out "I'm so much cooler than that other edition you shared last week!" And it's right. Look how pretty! It's only £9.99 too!
Oh my gosh, this is quite possibly one of the most beautiful book covers ever, and I have a bit of a thing for pretty books! The Fox and the Star, by Coralie Bickford-Smith, is both a work of prose and design and looks absolutely stunning. It's £15.99 from Waterstones.
