Book Review | The Buried City A Tale of Two Time Zones by Judy Brulo

I’ve started to notice that as Mason gets older he’s enjoying books a lot more and will sit to read to himself for a little while. He still really enjoys discovering books with me and is happy for us to read together. Mason is definitely more open to giving anything a try and if he enjoys it then great but if not we know what to avoid. We were kindly sent a copy of Judy Brulo’s *The Buried City A Tale of Two Time Zones to review.

Book Review | The Wing Thief By Samantha Atkins

I was kindly asked if I’d like to take part in my first ever blog tour. I was sent an e-copy of  *The Wing Thief by Samantha Atkins to read and review.

 

Today is my turn so I really hope you enjoy reading this post.

 

The Blurb:

Let me ask you a question. It’s a pretty straight forward question, but one that you shouldn’t rush to answer. Do you believe in magic?

Vista wanted two things: adventure and freedom. But nothing could prepare her for the fall that would change everything. In a single moment, Vista’s comfortable life in the Home Tree is over and she must find a way to survive in the forest alone. She soon learns that not everyone can be trusted and now she must race to save the family she left behind.

In a forest filled with magic and trickery, just how far can a flightless fairy go?

Book Review | Mermaid Eclipse by N.E. Carlisle

I come from a family of readers and I will always encourage my boys to read. I try to read lots of different books with the boys so they can discover what they enjoy and I try not to keep to typically boys books, I mean who says books are for specific genders anyway??

Mason is definitely more open to give anything a try and if he enjoys it then great but if not we know what to avoid. We were kindly sent a copy of N.E. Carlisle’s *Mermaid Eclipse to review.

September Already?? That Can Only Mean One Thing….

Hello September, it’s nice to see you again!! 

I can’t believe we’re here again and it’s September already. Where has the summer gone?? It feels like it’s been going on forever, yet somehow not long enough. I absolutely love that it’s time for the older boys to go back to school and I’m definitely done with ironing labels to every single piece of school clothing and items. I like to think I’m organised when it comes to getting the school stuff ready. There’s nothing more satisfying than having brand new clean uniform ready and waiting for that first day to arrive!!

 

It’s not that I don’t love spending time with them, because I do, but my god I’m so ready for life to go back to normal…..Whatever normal is!! I miss my daily routines and being able to get housework done without the house being trashed  10 minutes later, I miss the bedtime routines and actually getting all kids in bed and settled so I can sit and watch something or blog in peace.
