Today on Kitten Corner I thought I’d round up for you some of our recent board book reads that have an animal theme! All of these were sent to me free of charge, but that doesn’t affect my opinions.
This bind up of three novellas in the Skyward series is an interesting addition to the story, but a frustrating one, because it seems essential to the series plot arc, while being marketed as side stories.
Do you remember the enormous stack of historical romance I was given by a neighbour at the start of the summer? Well, I’ve been working my way through it, and here are my thoughts on the first eleven books!
This YA contemporary fantasy romance is sweet, funny, and extremely relatable!

This mystery, originally published in 1944 and set in a military hospital during the Blitz, is a fun and fiendish puzzle with a soapy hospital drama feel!
This might be my favourite collection of Weird tales yet – a great mix of stories and subjects, with incisive character work.
It’s time to pick a new challenge TBR, and after a month of mostly romance reading, I’m ready to tackle some fantasy and sci fi! This month’s theme is ‘A is for August’, by which I mean I’ve chosen twelve books from the TBR with titles that start with A. Let’s see what’s on the list!

I’m about a quarter of the way through this book, and I’m having the best time – my full review will be coming in a couple of weeks. I just know the Tea Princess Chronicles are going to be perfect for everyone looking for a soft, fun fantasy read – you can add it to Goodreads here, or grab your copy here!
