Happy Valentine's Day

To celebrate the day of love I'm giving away one of my very favourite books of last year.

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell



I loved this book, so much, so much. It's a book about love and how it can save you and free you. You can read my review here. 

I know it's not going to be to everyone's taste (please don't tell me if you don't like it, it will hurt my heart), but if you'd like to give it a try, just leave a comment below. Extra entry if you post about the giveaway on Twitter.

Open to where ever the Book Depository Ships

I'll randomly pick a winner on the 28th.

Happy Valentine's Day!

The Dream Thieves Cover



Oh lord, I am so excited about the new Maggie Stiefvater book, which now has a cover and a title, and what a cover! So gorgeous! I'm not sure how I'm going to survive the wait until 17th September.

I Love my Library!

Today is National Libraries Day in the UK, I absolutely love my local library, it's small but lovely. My son and I try to visit every Friday to borrow books and enjoy story time. I love that he loves the library as much as I do.

Now the library would be fabulous all on it's own. It's a place dedicated to books and reading, what's not to love? But what makes our library extra special is our fabulous librarian, Kate. She is helpful and full of knowledge and always greets my son by name. One of the reason he loves going to library is to see her.

Today a part of the celebration of National Libraries Day there was this display. To encourage reading outside of your comfort zone.





So as well as picking up Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple, I also picked up this. So exciting!





Inside was this.


I love that title.


Long Live the Library!

What's your local library like? Do you love it?
