Mother's Day is just around the corner so I have put together a book buying guide if you are unsure what to get your mum or significant other for the big day!

My hesitation to do so was not because of the storyline, rather the writing style. My experience … Continue reading The Classics
Do you have a favourite author? I would love for you to share yours if you do have one and let us all know why. My favourite author is Jenny Colgan. I find her books always satisfying.
