DreamWorks Trolls Hug Time Poppy Review

Trolls, it is still my children's current favourite film, I find them listening to the soundtrack often and they already have a good selection of merchandise so when Hasbro asked if I'd like to review the Hug Time Poppy interactive toy I knew my children would love me that little bit more when it arrived.


Princess Poppy comes complete with her own tiara and an extra matching bracelet for the child to wear. When activated she speaks over 25 phrases, she lights up and of course Poppy sings songs so that the kids can sing along.

Read With Me #13 2017

Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Read With Me. I hope you've all managed to read at least one book in the past week, perhaps you got books as a Mother's Day present. Can you believe we are into the last week of March, 3 months in and I'm already over half way through my reading targets on Goodreads.


Last week my girls took advantage of their World Book Day tokens and got themselves a book each to read, it's funny to see how they all differ in their reading tastes.

My Sunday Photo 2017 #13

Spring has finally sprung. Lighter mornings and lighter evenings. And that will continue with the clocks going forward again. What I really like about this time of the year is seeing all the flowers in bloom, the colour reappearing everywhere, really brightens my mood.

I captured this photo when we were at the park last week, I think this is the time of year that makes you stop and really appreciated your surroundings.

Till Death by Jennifer L Armentrout March Book of the Month

I have always been a huge fan of Jennifer L Armentrout, her Lux series is something I recommend time and time again, I have both the ebooks and the special edition paperbacks. So when I saw that she had released a new book, not of her usual genre I was both intrigued and excited. After reading Till Death it just had to be my choice for March book of the month.

It’s been ten years since Sasha Keaton left her West Virginia hometown . . . since she escaped the twisted serial killer known as the Groom. Returning to help run her family inn means being whole again, except for one missing piece. The piece that falls into place when Sasha’s threatened—and FBI agent Cole Landis vows to protect her the way he couldn’t a decade ago.

First one woman disappears; then another, and all the while, disturbing calling cards are left for the sole survivor of the Groom’s reign of terror. Cole’s never forgiven himself for not being there when Sasha was taken, but he intends to make up for it now . . . because under the quirky sexiness Cole first fell for is a steely strength that only makes him love Sasha more.

But someone is watching. Waiting. And Sasha’s first mistake could be her last.


When Sasha was last in her hometown she was a 19 year old girl who had just lived through the worst horror imaginable but she was the only victim to escape the clutches of the serial killer known as the groom. A decade has passed and now a 29 year old woman she heads back home to do what she should have been doing all along, running the family business.
