30. Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy

This was another book I got for my birthday, and I read it on Monday while the mountain weather was bad, the visibility was poor and the wind was high. I lost myself to the pages of this book while it snowed heavily outside and tried not to think about the skiing I was missing…

29. The Mermaid by Christina Henry

My sister got me this book for my birthday. I’d heard great things about Christina Henry and was interested so see where she’d take this classic story. It was also interesting to read about P.T. Barnum in a light that wasn’t glamourised by Hollywood. Synopsis (as taken from the back of the book) is as…

Arrival at Tignes, France

Good Afternoon everyone! It is exciting to be writing this from Tignes and not boring on England. It was a mission to get here. A 2:30am start and a journey that took 12 hours due to traffic and incidences in Geneva and the border between Geneva and France. It is now 4pm, I’ve braved the…

27. When We Were Warriors by Emma Carroll

This book was part of a set by Emma Carroll that I got for my birthday. I recently discovered Emma Carroll when I read ‘The Secrets of a Sun King’ and I fell in love with the author during those pages. It made me want to read all her books and luckily I have a…

Weekend Catch Up

Hello! Another weekend is here! Can you believe we’re in March already? I can’t believe how fast February flew past and it was filled with so many celebrations and fun times. It wasn’t just my Birthday that was celebrated in February but also my Dad’s, my Granny’s, and four of my friends. I managed to…

26. The Snow Sister by Emma Carroll

This was one of my birthday presents. I have been in love with Emma Carroll since I read ‘Secrets of a Sun King’ and this book did not disappoint. Synopsis (as taken from back of book) is as follows: Pearl was putting the finishing touches to a persona made out of snow. And that person,…
