Shared family holidays at Creek House have been the backdrop to Millie’s summers since forever. Hanging out with the other kids – Matt, Charlie, Jem and her best friend Kat – has made it her favourite time of the year. But this holiday things are different – the childhood games that once filled their days have lost their appeal to everyone except Millie. It’s not until the final night that the others agree to a game of hide and seek. But in the time it takes Millie to count to twenty, Kat vanishes.
Happy May everyone! It i time for another monthly book haul! This haul consists of 11 books. It has books gifted from publishers, pre-orders and a couple of presents for myself. Here is my April book haul!
I have just spent the last half-an-hour requesting new books to review over on Netgalley, so it felt like perfect time to write this post. My Netgalley TBR is always full of new and exciting books because of how much time I spend on there. I love talking about all the books I am anticipating because it makes me even more excited to read them. There have been so many amazing books on my Netgalley shelf over the years and it is a place that I've found so many new authors and books. Here are some of the books that are currently on my Netgalley shelf / TBR!
A couple of days ago, I shared a post about some of the new books being released in May. There are so many books out in May that I spilt the post into two parts. Be sure to check out part one before reading this one! Here is part two of the new book releases in May that I am excited for!
I am back again with another 'currently I'm...' post. I began doing these posts a while ago all because of how nosy I am when it comes to knowing what other people are currently reading, watching and listening to. So, to help my own intrigue, started these posts. Here is this month's currently I'm...
Position Vacant: Two ancient old women residing at Providence Retirement Villa seek male assistant for casual exploitation and good-natured humiliation. Duties include boutique shopping, fast-food fetching, and sincerely rendered flattery. Good looks a bonus—but we aren’t picky. An advertisement has been placed (again!) by the wealthy and eccentric Parloni Sisters. The salary is generous and the employers are 90 years old, so how hard could the job be? Well, none have lasted longer than a week. Most boys leave in tears. Ruthie Midona will work in Providence’s front office, and be at the Parloni’s beck and call, forever. That’s sort of her life plan. If Ruthie can run the place in her almost-retired bosses’ absence, with no hijinks/hiccups, she has a shot at becoming the new manager. She might also be able to defend her safe little world from Prescott Development, the new buyer of the prime site. Maybe after all that, she can find a cute guy to date. All she needs to do is stay serious—and that’s what she does best. Until, one day, someone dazzling blows into town.
March is almost over! This month seems to have gone on forever and quite a lot has happened. I've been on days out, my Grandad turned 80 and I read a lot. Here is what happened in March!
Earlier on this month I posted about 5 popular books I didn't plan on reading. Not every popular book is one I'd like to read but there are certainly some I'm excited to read. I wanted to share a few of the popular books I want to read soon with you today. Here are 5 popular books I want to read soon.
I spent a lot of my time looking for new things to request on Netgalley. Of course that means my Netgalley TBR is never-ending. I love talking about the books that I’m anticipating because it makes me even more excited to read them. There have been so many amazing books on my Netgalley shelf over the years and it is a place that I’ve found so many new authors and books. Here are just a few things currently on my Netgalley shelf / TBR!
When the Superflu wipes out most of the population, Jamie finds himself completely alone in a cabin in the woods - until an injured stranger crosses his path. Life is dangerous now and, armed with a gun, Jamie goes to pull the trigger. But there's something about Andrew ... something that stops Jamie in his tracks. Jamie takes him in, and as Andrew heals and they eventually step out into the strange new world, their relationship starts to feel like more than just friendship ...
