One Shot Book Review

Last year I was lucky enough that Barrington Stoke sent me a copy of a very poignant book, One Shot by award winning author Tanya Landman. I've impatiently held off writing my review but this incredible story is being released this week (finally) so I feel like I can now share my thoughts with all of you.

After the death of her beloved father, Maggie and her family are thrown into a life of destitution. With little income and no way to live off their poor land. Maggie tries to provide for her family the way her father always had - with his hunting rifle and whatever animals the forest would provide. But when her mother is confronted with her "unladylike" behaviour, she abandons Maggie to a life of unthinkable cruelty and abuse. With no one to care for her and only the hope of escape, all Maggie can do is survive.

The blurb alone is powerful!

Before I tell you about my favourite post from last week, I just wanted to quickly share with you all a lovely book that I was sent in the post a few days ago by a wonderful, kind author, who I have had the privilege of working with before.

You may remember previous book reviews on a set of books called the Pasta Kidz & Petz Adventure and now I'm ready to show you the third book in this fantastically, endearing set of stories.

Twisty Petz Series 2 Toy Review

Twisty Petz are a relatively new collectable that cleverly transform from a cute pet into a shiny, glamorous bracelet with a simple pull, a twist or two later and your little ones can magically bring their adorable pets back to life. My girls were instantly taken with them when the original collection was initially release and now they're already back with a series 2, which the children are already desperate to collect!

Spinmaster kindly sent a selection of the new series (free of charge) for my daughters to have fun with so that I could provide you with this review.

Twist'em! Wear'em! Take'em everywhere you go!


An affordable, pocket money toy. Twisty Petz offer two things in one, an interactive, small toy as well as a beautiful piece of jewellery. Aimed at children from the age of four and upwards, these colourful, glittery pets are a great accessory.
