Blogger Book Nook: The Assistants by Camille Perri

  I was really excited to get involved with this brand new blogger book club called the Blogger Book Nook. It’s a simple concept created by Abbey and Tabitha and it works so well. There’s a monthly prompt and some questions (this month’s theme is ‘new’, get it?!) to inspire us to 1) read a […]

Lucy Worsley’s YA historical novels

Lucy Worsley is an historian who I greatly admire, for her BBC documentaries and her work as Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces.  She has recently released two novels for young readers, and although they may be marketed as Young Adult I found them to be light, engrossing reads for adults.  The first novel is […]

The Luxe Life and Youtuber books

When it comes to Youtuber books, I tend to stay away from them.  I prefer to read books by people who write for the love of it, and aren’t just doing it for their online brand.  That’s how most Youtuber books come across to me, anyway.  They never mention books in their videos, until it’s […]
