The Moonlight Zoo Book Review

There are some books that you instantly fall in love with, The Moonlight Zoo was one of those books for me.

As soon as I opened the package, I was captured by the front cover. Quite unique with its peek through shapes. Immediately drawn to the oh so beautiful, magical and enchanting imagery. Not forgetting that certain shine that gives off a different colour every time the light hits it.

It screams fantasy.

Five Ways to Make a Friend - Book Review

My days are always made better when I get book post from Barrington Stoke.

This is a publishing company that never fails to impress me with their choice of authors, illustrators and publishing style.

Each and every story is made with reading in mind. 

Now that might sound like a silly sentence because what else is a book for but for reading however not all books can be accessed by everyone for a variety of reasons but these stories appeal to the masses and can be enjoyed by all members of the family.

My latest read from them is Five Ways to Make a Friend. Written by Gillian Cross and illustrated by Sarah Horne.

If you hadn't guessed by the title, you'll already know that this book is about friendship but this tale is about so much more than that.

The Memory Wood Book Review

I adore Netgalley - if you are a book worm like me and you haven't signed up to this site yet then I highly recommend that you do.

My list of books to read on there was getting quite long by the end of last year. It was hard to stop the urge to request new books when I still had others to read. One of those stories was The Memory Wood by Sam Lloyd.

It was a novel that I had seen being talked about over social media and after reading the blurb I felt a strong need to read it and find out more about the memory wood and just what memories it actually held within its clutches.
