1. My only reading goal for 2024 was to try and read as many of my own physical and ebooks. I‘m trying not to buy new books but keep adding them to my TBR! 🤣
2. I don‘t really make plans, I‘m a pretty cover girl 🤔
3. Reading helps me calm myself at nighttime. It helps me switch off into a different world. Armchair travel is free! 🌍 I‘ve taught my girls how important reading is and now they are both keen readers too ❤️

Eggs #2 yes me too! #3 how wonderful you passed on your reading values to your progeny 💖 4d

A Kind of Spark | Elle McNicoll

A neurodivergent girl called Addie learns at school that her hometown burnt witches because they were deemed different. The witches were just like Addie - different. Addie works to start up a memorial to remember those who were punished.
Addie shows great power and strength unlike some of the adults in her life. It is a touching and powerful book. This book needs to be in every classroom and adults made to read it too!

AnnCrystal 👏💝👍. 5d
Itchyfeetreader Loved this one and her later books also. Recommend checking them out 5d

Midnight Sun | Stephenie Meyer
post image
Pickpick

This has been on my book shelf for a few years. A whopping 756 pages!
Twilight was an iconic love story. I loved all the books and the movies. The books only told Bella‘s story but Midnight Sun tells Edward‘s version.
Starting on the first day they meet at school, the reader finds out unknown details about Edwards life, family and how his thoughts work.
It was so easy to immerse myself back into the world of vampires.

Beau, ex military hero trying to deal with his tortured past. Bailey, a young woman with a notorious family name. After agreeing on a bet which will help them both out with their family and current life choices, can they keep to the agreement? Lines become blurred and feelings become confusing.
I love the returning characters from previous books in the series. Great pacing throughoutand surprising reveals. I now need to read the next series.,

Theo, a bull rider, ladies man and trouble is looking Winters Way. Winter has just left her husband & needs to concentrate on herself. Theo begins to melt Winters icy exterior. It was meant to be a one time thing but they will be intrinsically linked forever.
This is a deep, emotional read about a woman who basically hates herself. She doesn‘t think she deserves love. After meeting Winter, Theo changed his whole perspective on life. A great read

Two childhood friends with broken hearts but for different reasons. The third in the series and the best one so far! Jasper, the handsome athlete and hockey star. Sloane, the rich girl who wants to please her father. Their feelings are interlinked and are never straight forward. I loved the fact that previous characters from book one and two are still in this book too! I can‘t read to read the next in the series

Cade is looking for a nanny for his son, Luke. Willa arrives in town and the rules are simple - look after Luke. The issue is they can‘t keep their eyes off each other. One night in the hot tub changes how they see each other. Willas contract is for two months but will it be changed to forever.
Cade sounded so grumpy and scowling but was a doting dad. Willa is loud, witty and carefree.
A slow burn read with a great set of characters.

Summer has a messy and complicated family life. Rhett has a successful career in bull riding but is searching for something, but he doesn‘t know what. Sparks fly when Summer is sent to ‘baby sit‘ Rhett by her father who happens to be Rhett‘s agent. The tension and banter make for great reading. Full of heart and a great set of secondary characters who you can‘t help but love too. Can‘t wait to read the next in the series.

Well it‘s been a tough week, I had a car accident on Tuesday. Thankfully not my fault but due to the nature of the impact I‘ve jarred my back, neck and shoulder. My anxiety has been through the roof and I haven‘t been sleeping well. Today they took my car to be assessed. Things could have been a lot worse but it‘s made me really nervous to get back in a car. I‘ve been at home for three days resting but managed to read quite a bit. Xx

Paddington Bear, and then I am guessing The snail and the whale (thank you for the cover help!)
2 of the 3 little pigs and the big bad woolf, Peter Rabbit, minions
