Read With Me 2018 #25

Hello and welcome to this weeks Read With Me. Thank you to all who linked up last week and a thanks in advance to all the posts I hope to read this week.


One of my favourite reads from last week came from author Paige Toon with her latest novel, Five Years From Now. This was one of my book wins from Twitter and I can't tell you how good this book is. I'll definitely be trying other books from the same author now.

My Sunday Photo 2018 #25

My girls are always creating one thing or another. Below is one of their latest creations, simply using sugar and food colouring. I've been told they will be buying some fake flowers to display in the little bottles.

I actually think they'd make nice little gifts.

Methods to Beat Exam Stress

It's that time of year where kids up and down the country are all facing some sort of tests and exams. Whether that be GCSE's, end of year assessments, phonics tests or something more generalised. There seems to be a lot of pressure put on kids these days to do well because governments set unrealistic targets and children feel the need to meet these goals in order to do well in their future. 

But in a society where anxiety in the younger generation is on the rise, how can we help our children beat that awful exam stress? Here are five tips on how as parents, we can help our children to achieve their goals whilst keeping a positive outlook on things.


Trust in your child

I think we have to remember that each of our children are individuals, they have their own minds and they will already have methods that they feel help them in achieving their own goals. Don't question how they want to revise, simply ask them how you can help them with how they want to do it.

I Never Lie by Jody Sabral Join the Book Tour

In recent months I've really got into the genres of crime, thrillers and mysteries and the latest novel from Jody Sabral seems to have all those elements wrapped up in it and that's why I was so eager to join her book tour to tell you more about the story.

Alex South is a high-functioning alcoholic who is teetering on the brink of oblivion. Her career as a television journalist is hanging by a thread since a drunken on-air rant. When a series of murders occur within a couple of miles of her East London home she is given another chance to prove her skill and report the unfolding events. She thinks she can control the drinking, but soon she finds gaping holes in her memory, and wakes to find she’s done things she can’t recall. As the story she’s covering starts to creep into her own life, is Alex a danger only to herself – or to others?

Is she the next victim? Or is she the culprit…?

Read With Me 2018 #24

Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Read With Me. Thank you to everyone who continues to link up, it really is appreciated.


I've been really lucky the past couple weeks, winning some book competitions over on Twitter including winning the full Waiting For a Callback series, which they've kindly signed. I'm putting it to one side and gifting it to my eldest on her birthday (not until November lol).
