    What I read in May 2020

    What I read in May 2020 It’s time to find out what I read in May 2020. Let’s wrap up the month and see what books I read, liked, didn’t like and more. I’ll also dive into a few readathons I’ve participated in. Maybe I made progress on my reading challenges in May 2020? First of all, I just want to stress the fact that I don’t see reading as a competition and I do have months where I don’t read anything, and other times where I read a lot of books. It all depends on my mood, my sparetime and whatever else is going on.  So please, don’t feel…

    Book review: Marilla of Green Gables

    Book review of Marilla of Green Gables This is my book review of Marilla of Green Gables. I bought the book when I was acquiring the books in the Little House: The Rose Years series, and thought I’d throw that one in there as well. I saved some money on shipping buying more at once, and I had seen the book around. Marilla of Green Gables by Sarah McCoy is set to be a prequel to the well-known and well-loved story of Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. I read the Anne of Green Gables books growing up and I loved them. So naturally, I wanted more and…

    Book review: Maybe a Fox

    Book review of Maybe a Fox The book Maybe a Fox has been on my shelf for a few years. Written by Kathi Appelt and Alison McGhee, it’s a book about coping with loss, seen from a childs perspective. The cover of the book drew me in and after reading the blurp on the back, I had to have it. I bought the book in a beautiful but small bookshop in Stamford, England. Maybe a Fox “Jules adores her older-by-one-year sister, Sylvie. Sylvie: beautiful like their mother, supreme maker of tiny snow families, faster than fast. Sylvie: gone. Into thin air, Sylvie goes missing, and as Jules stumbles in grief,…

    OWLs Magical Readathon 2020

    OWLs Magical Readathon 2020 In April, I participated in the OWLs Magical Readathon 2020 hosted by Book Roast. It’s a reading event that took place during the month of April 2020. The theme lines up with the wizarding world of Harry Potter and it’s about “taking your magical exams” also known as the “O.W.L.s”. This is done by reading a certain type of book for each subject that you would imagine attending. So, what did I actually manage to read for this event and how many “subjects” did I complete? I read a lot of books in April, although not all of them fit the criteria and thus didn’t count…

    Book review: Rotherweird

    Book review of Rotherweird by Andrew Caldecott This is a book review of Rotherweird by Andrew Caldecott. A book about a weirdly whimsical and secluded town with plenty of Tudor age secrets. Rotherweird is the first part of a trilogy. Find it right here on Book Depository or Amazon [affiliate links] Summary I have humbly borrowed this blurp from the back of the book: “1558: Twelve children, gifted far beyond their years, are banished by their Tudor queen to the town of Rotherweird.
