Lost for Words by Aoife Walsh

Although this book is meant for a younger audience but works quite well for someone as old as me! The conversation style is a little choppy, which seemed a bit odd at first, but throughout the book, it turned out to be the main charm of the narration. Dallas messes up in the very first… Continue reading Lost for Words by Aoife Walsh

The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83¼ Years Old (Hendrik Groen #1) by Hendrik Groen

Translated by: Hester Velmans I picked this book up because I saw this great review by Yvonne @ It's all about books. It tipped me in favour of reserving the book immediately instead of later and luckily it was available at the library. I have seen other reviews of this in passing over the last few… Continue reading The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83¼ Years Old (Hendrik Groen #1) by Hendrik Groen

The Fated Sky (Lady Astronaut #2) by Mary Robinette Kowal

I reviewed the previous book on this log quite recently: I usually get to sequels a little late because of how I get my hands on books like this, but my library obligingly had both books available so I could get to the second with the first relatively fresh in my mind. In this second… Continue reading The Fated Sky (Lady Astronaut #2) by Mary Robinette Kowal

First Time Embroidery and Cross-Stitch by Linda Wyszynski

This is the most comprehensive book that I could ever want if I decide to take up embroidery. I have this (probably bad) habit of purchasing everything required for a hobby even as I step into it. When I began crocheting, I bought a huge book and a lot of hooks and did not really… Continue reading First Time Embroidery and Cross-Stitch by Linda Wyszynski

Children's Non-Fiction

The Rocking Book of Rocks by Florence Bullough; Amy Ball

I saw this great review @HappyTonic and since I have pre-approval from the publishers, I decided to give it a shot. I am always ready to try books for kids and have read a few non-fiction recently. I end up ordering the books for either my own shelf or for my nieces. This was no exception.… Continue reading The Rocking Book of Rocks by Florence Bullough; Amy Ball
