Tom Fletcher – The Christmasaurus

Following Tom Fletcher on Instagram and Twitter, I’ve heard a lot about this book in the run up to its release and the subsequent praise that it received, so when I saw it on offer at Costco, I just couldn’t resist. I love reading Christmassy books in the run up to Christmas, and this one was perfect. Although it’s a kids book, I didn’t find that it was written in a childish tone, although there were quite a few silly...

Chrissie Manby – The Christmas List

To get myself in the festive spirit, I decided to download a few Christmas themed books with my Kindle Unlimited membership. To me, fantasy and crime books aren’t really the kind of books that evoke festive feelings, so I downloaded a few ‘Chick-Lit’ books to satisfy my Christmas cravings.

I had to reign myself in to stop from...

Two people were killed early on in the book, but the main storyline...

Now Reading: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Christmas

I’m now onto book 3 of 5 of the Lily Bard series that my parents bought me for Christmas. I’m loving this series so far, so I’m guessing that this one is going to be just as good. The only thing I hope out of this book is that it’s not too Christmassy. It seems like a long time since Christmas now, so I don’t want to read anything too festive. But on reading the back of the book, it looks like it might just be set...
