We’re halfway through June and despite life being disrupted with a lot of work being done to our house, I’ve still managed to get a good amount of reading done. Sadly almost everything from my challenge TBR that I’ve picked up has been disappointing so far, but hey, at least they’re done!Continue reading “June TBR Challenge: Mid-Month Check In”
If you’ve been here a while you’ll know I’m a big fan of DN Bryn’s writing, so I jumped at the chance to kick off the blog tour for their new book, Odder Still!
From tiny bugs to the entire universe, there’s a lot to learn about when you’re small, and these five books all showcase different things to get little kids interested in the workings of the world. All of these books were sent to me free of charge, but that doesn’t affect my opinions – I enjoyed all of them and think they’ll get a lot of reading!

Recently in Kitten Corner I’ve been reading a fair few funny picture books, so that’s what we’re looking at today! All of these were sent to me for review, but that doesn’t affect my opinions. It’s been fun to share them all with my toddler!
This collection of classic crime short stories with Scottish links is full of variety, and perfect to dip into for some atmospheric tales…

I’ve read a number of middle grade books recently with fabulously determined, powerful girls at the forefront, so I thought I’d scoop them up into one post for you as a kind of showcase of fun heroines! All of these books were sent to me free of charge, either as e-ARCs via NetGalley or as physical proofs, but as ever that doesn’t affect my opinions. There’s a wide range, from modern day thriller to historical fantasy, so hopefully something will catch your eye…
To round off the week, it’s my stop on the blog tour for Lord of Worth, a sweet Georgian romance!
It’s already time to start wrapping things up for May! This month I wanted to let myself do some mood reading, so my challenge TBR was just fifteen random books I felt like reading – but then it turned out, I didn’t actually feel like doing much reading at all. I did still manage to tick off five more out of the fifteen, so I read ten challenge books in total – read on for my thoughts…Continue reading “May Reading Challenge: Free Choice Fifteen Final Check In”
