The kids were sent these three books recently from Lonely Planet Kids and today we are going to tell you about how great they are. Firstly I will say we have had books from Lonely Planet Kids before that we have bought ourselves and they are amazing quality books, really sturdy hard back books that make wonderful gifts that will be treasured for a very long time. They are books that you can just keep going back to and every time you pick one up you will learn something new. You might associate Lonely Planet Kids with travel and you would definitely be right about that but they are so much more! Read more
I didn’t manage to read quite as many books during February as I did last month. For one reason I wasn’t poorly this month so didn’t spend as much time in bed and my books were not as ‘un-put-down-able’ as the ones I read in January.
One great thing about being poorly for most of January has meant that I have had lots of time for reading. In 2015 and 2016 I set myself reading challenges but never actually completed them. I think in 2016 I read just 8 books, so this year I’m not putting that much pressure on myself I am just reading when I feel like it and I am loving it so far. I did say that I wasn’t going to buy any new books until I’ve read the 50 or so that I have on my book shelf but I have already failed that and have bought 3 already!! I am going to try to abstain from buying any more now! Read more
I love to read. I haven’t always been a reader though, as a child it never really bothered me. I was never encouraged to read I have just learnt to love it as an adult. I don’t ever remember my mum with a book in her hand and I find that very sad. My kids love to read and I do everything that I possibly can to encourage them to love reading.

The lovely people from Moon & Star Books sent the kids ‘The Day Louis Got Eaten’ by John Fardell to review last week and they have also given us an extra copy for one of my lucky readers to win 🙂 If you haven’t heard of Moon & Star before please do check them out, all of their books are under £5 and they have a wonderful selection. I am very proud to have them as my #BML16 sponsor this year 🙂
I’m really excited to introduce my #BML16 sponsor Moon & Star Books to you today. I love being able to represent a business that I love! We can never have enough children’s books, our house is full of them and I just love to buy more, it also helps when they aren’t too expensive… all of the children’s books on the website are brand new and under £5 (lots of the titles are £1.99/2.99)!

Last year I set myself a really difficult (for me) challenge, during 2014 I read a total of 2 books, I love reading but just wasn’t finding the time for it so I started the book a week challenge during 2015. I wasn’t surprised that I failed but I was pleased that I pushed myself to find the time to do more reading. I managed a total of 20 books during 2015 so I didn’t do too bad (for me). The first half of the year I was really good, I even read the whole of the Twilight series in just two weeks but then things (Netflix) got in the way and instead of picking up a book I was picking up my iPad for a fix of The Vampire Diaries or such like.
