Big Bones

My current book for the middle of the night is Big Bones by Laura Dockrill. I have an e copy through Net Galley and requested it after seeing it mentioned on several YouTube channels. I wanted to read it and I wanted to love it. But for about the first half of the book, I…

Eat Up!

This morning I finally finished reading Ruby Tandoh’s Eat Up! It’s taken me a little while as I have been reading it as an actual physical book, rather than an an ebook on my phone. I get more time for the latter as I can read in the middle of the night whilst my reluctant-to-stay-asleep…

All About Nursing Bras

About seventeen months ago I landed with a bump in the confusing world of nursing bras. I went through my pregnancy wearing some wildly unsupportive maternity/nursing bras from a high street shop and hated them. When Small finally came along I panic bought anything that came in S, M, L type sizes. I had neither…

Three Book Reviews

I have had a bit of a book finishing binge in the last week or so. First was Three Things About Elsie by Joanna Cannon and I got my copy via Net Galley. This was one of those books that you finish and then want to start again right away. It’s full of lots of…

Review: The Movement of Stars, Amy Brill

Review: Snuggle and Play Crochet by Carolina Guzman Benitez

Another book to review courtesy of Netgalley. This is a book of patterns for stuffed animals and those snuggle blankets that can be called lovey or doudou or woobie. Effectively you can make a whole animal, or just it’s head and arms and attach it to a crocheted blanket. A flick through shows a good variety of…

Review: Snowflakes on Christmas Street by Ivy Pembroke

This was another review e-book from Netgalley. I admit that I struggled at first and couldn’t get into the book. As I continued, though, the characters really started to grow on me. As I approached the end I was really keen to find out how it all ended. It is a warm and cosy book,…

Review: Knit Mitts by Kate Atherley

Courtesy of the nice people at Netgalley, I had the opportunity to investigate a new book by Kate Atherley, Knit Mitts. This will be published on 26 October 2017 and cost $23.99 in the US. If I am able to track down information on publication outside the US, I will update the end of the…
