I have to admit we've failed a bit on the reading front. We have done a bit of reading but the library challenge hasn't quite gone to plan as we just haven't had the time to get down there and get more books out, anyone else struggling with that?

My Sunday Photo 2017 #34

Couldn't resist putting up another photo from Leeds Castle. Such a picturesque area, and even though the place is always busy it seems to look oh so peaceful.

Trust By Kylie Scott - August Book of the Month

Kylie Scott is an author that I really like, having read her previous novels including Lick and Stage Dive, I was excited to see her latest book, Trust, show up on Netgalley and even more excited when I was approved to get an advanced reading copy.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen-year-old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

My youngest has still been enjoying using Reading Eggs and we've been trying to continue practicing her phonics and tricky words so when she goes back to school it won't like be going back to the beginning.
