Review: Doll Bones by Holly Black

I was extremely excited to read this book! I mean, creepy dolls made in the 1800s that haunt their owners? That sounds perfect to me! Shame it’s a really terrible book though. Zach, Poppy and Alice have been friends for ever. They love playing with their action figure toys, imagining a magical world of adventure…… Continue reading Review: Doll Bones by Holly Black

Children’s Book Sunday: The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt

Well, I thought the Day the Crayons Quit was my favourite picture book of the year, this year, but I was wrong. The second book in the series is even BETTER!

Children’s Book Sunday: Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens

I was really excited to start this book, it’s about an all girl’s school in the 1930s and a murder happens. Multiple murders. That’s an interesting premise for a children’s book isn’t it? Now, the idea was really great and honestly, from a child’s perspective, the book is actually really great. That said, I’m not…… Continue reading Children’s Book Sunday: Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens

Children’s Book Sunday: the Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt

I work as a volunteer at my local library. Which provides me with free books if I want to read them. I was looking through our little children’s section and came across this one, the Day the Crayons Quit has been high on my to-buy list, but I couldn’t justify the price of it. But…… Continue reading Children’s Book Sunday: the Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt
