Top Ten Favourite Book Covers

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s is a Freebie week so the theme I have chosen is my: Top Ten Favourite Book Covers Heir to Sevenwaters by Juliet Marillier: I own the hardback cover of this book and it is simply stunning. You need to see the full wrap-around to get the full effect. There is nothing I don’t like about this cover. It has fairy tale elements; it’s somewhat whimsical and spooky at the same time. It’s not my favourite Sevenwaters book but the romance between Clodagh […]

ARC Review: The Morning Gift by Eva Ibbotson

I had to read this book – even if just for the sole reason that the main character shares my first name! On a more serious note, this book really was a fantastic read. This was a wonderful story about a young girl called Ruth (great name btw!) who flees Nazi-occupied Austria when her Jewish heritage puts her in danger. Her family have already traveled to London but Ruth comes across various obstacles when trying to leave and family friend Quin has to step in to help her. A visiting professor, Quin is acquainted with Ruth’s scholarly father and […]

Why May 6th is a hard day for me

I seriously debated about whether to post anything today at all. I had a Waiting on Wednesday post scheduled but I wasn’t sure whether or not to go ahead with it or not. I have been pretty lax over the last couple of weeks with both posting and keeping on top of comments. I love when people leave comments on my posts – the interaction is the best part of blogging for me. But I haven’t felt like myself over the last couple of weeks and I have struggled trying to respond to all the lovely folks who have […]
