#TopTenTuesday: Libraries I’d Love to Visit

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there is a new topic or theme to base your top ten list on. You can find more details about it and see the list of topics here. I love this week’s topic! I mean, who doesn’t love a good library? I’ve seen some stunning pictures of minimalist, modern libraries on Pinterest, but I have to say I prefer the gaudy, traditional libraries with gorgeous Baroque architecture. I imagine they would smell deliciously […]

The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.”  ~Billy B This week’s question: You are suddenly transported into a future […]

Q & A with Professional Photographer Marina Art

Q & A with Professional Photographer Marina Art

Today I’m excited to share with you my interview with professional photographer Marina Art! Photographs have always been important to me and I’m always the one snapping away at family events, but my knowledge and skill are only very basic. However, photography is an art form I really appreciate and want to learn more about.     Marina is a professional child, family and wedding photographer and owner of Marina Art Photography, based in Boston, Lincolnshire (UK). She specialises in maternity, newborn, child, family, portrait and wedding photography.  I first met Marina for a family photo session when my daughter  Leona […]

#TopTenTuesday: The Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

#TopTenTuesday: The Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there is a new topic or theme to base your top ten list on. You can find more details about it and see the list of topics here. I have to admit, my attention span is pretty short these days so I don’t read huge novels very often. Books around 300-400 pages are ideal for me, so this list is made up of books with a page count of 500 or more. Needless to […]

On my Wishlist-October 2018

On my Wishlist-October 2018

Welcome to my monthly wishlist update, based on the weekly meme that was hosted by Cosy Books. Every month, I’ll share a list of the books I desperately want to get my hands on but haven’t actually bought yet. They can be new, old, or yet to be released. If you’d like to join in, just post your link in the comments and I’ll visit your blog. Added to my wishlist recently: Before you go… Have you read any of these books or added them to your wishlist? What made you want to read them and what did you think?
