Friday’s Fave Five

Being a Librarian means that I spend an inordinate amount of time reading children’s books.

Author- Mary Weber Title- To Best the boys Publisher- Thomas Nelson. To be released on April 4th 2019 I’ll put my hand up and admit to not having read any of her other books. Apparently her Sire song series is a spectacular read but somehow it had managed to pass me by. But when I […]

Book Review and Book lauch- Outside by Sarah Ann Juckes

Book review and Launch of Outside by Sarah Ann Juckes. Last night I was lucky enough to go to the launch of this wonderful book.
