Milly Johnson – Sunshine Over Wildflower Cottage

I’ve been looking forward to this book for ages, and it finally came out last Thursday. And for the first time, I went to meet Milly Johnson to get my copy signed! I was the second person in the queue and so excited to meet her, and she was just as lovely as I thought she would be! We start the book with Viv, driving into a lovely (albeit extremely foggy) village called Ironmist, looking for her new job at Wildflower Cottage, an animal...

We’re Engaged!!

So I have exciting news for you, Cameron took me away for a few days at the beach in Scarborough, and while we were there, HE PROPOSED! It was such a great weekend, obviously, and I still can’t stop smiling and looking at the gorgeous ring!! I took absolutely loads of photos, but here’s a small selection for you 🙂

Milly Johnson – White Wedding

Well it’s been a long time since I started reading this book, over six weeks in fact. But I’ll blame that on Game of Thrones since this book was abandoned in my bedside drawer while I went on a fantasy epic. But after finishing Game of Thrones, and realising that I was going to a wedding last weekend, what a perfect time to pick this up again. Except not really, since I was hoping for a beautiful wedding to get me in the mood and...

Milly Johnson – The Teashop on the Corner

I’ve loved Milly Johnson ever since I first read The Yorkshire Pudding Club in a random set of books ordered from The Book People, and I can’t see that love diminishing any time soon, quite the opposite in fact! I could honestly read Milly’s books all day every day, although my poor to-read shelf wouldn’t be very happy about it if I did! I read a lot of tweets in the build up to the book launch, which ramped up my...

Tour de France Grand Depart Stage 2 – Huddersfield

Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last few weeks, you’re probably more than aware that it was the Grand Depart of the Tour De France this weekend, and where else but my home county of Yorkshire! We don’t usually watch the Tour, but we knew that it was a spectacle not to be missed, and that we had to go and try and see it just to see what it was all about. And boy, the atmosphere was incredible! We were one of the...

Review: Milly Johnson – A Spring Affair

I’m a self confessed lover of Milly Johnson. What’s not to like, a down to earth Yorkshire lass who writes fantastic books. I’ve actually never read her spring/summer/autumn/winter books, so when I was at Barter Books in Alnwick and I saw the Spring and Autumn ones, I couldn’t resist. I’ll have to hunt down the Summer and Winter ones very very soon! The story begins with lovely Lou Winters in a dentist’s...

Review: Frances Hodgson Burnett – The Secret Garden

This is a book that I started many times when I was younger and staying at my uncles house, but I was never there long enough to finish it and there was always something more exciting to do. So I guess 23 years old is as good a time as any to catch up on all those children’s classics that I’ve never read (Black Beauty next I think). All the way through this book I felt very connected to little Mary; at first she was a spoilt little...
