As many of you know I had a birthday on Monday and it was lovely to get some messages from everyone here as well as on various social media and of course at home. I’ve had a great birthday and spent some time away and apart from a bit of a bout of headaches at the end of the week I’m still feeling very cheerful. I’ve taken a bit of time away from the blog, though you may not have noticed as I kept putting up my automatic blog posts 😀 . Not only did I receive lots of lovely birthday presents but also some more book post which felt like a bit of a birthday present, and I also treated myself to some bookish arty treats too! So I thought I’d share with you some of the books I got myself, beware there’s a definite Christmassy colouring theme!
Firstly I got a great book in the post from Bookbridgr. I’m very much into books that look at cultural issues and am especially fascinated with things that happen in other countries so I was excited to be approved to read and review this:
The Maid’s Room by Fiona Mitchell – Set in the heat of Singapore, The Maid’s Room follows the lives of two Filipina maids- sisters Dolly and Tala who are working hard to send money back home and British ex-pat Jules who has left her job as a midwife to move to Singapore with husband David.
The book proof also has an unbelievably strong book smell – I’m a book sniffer and proud of it 😜☺️! The next set of books are also a birthday present. it combines two things I love: Colouring and stickers!! I’ve always been a secret sticker-freak and these books let you colour in pictures and add stickers of cats and dogs to make the scenes fun…
And finally the books I treated myself to! I can’t lie, I love Christmas and everything about it! My family has always enjoyed celebrating Christmas our way, stress-free and making sure we all enjoy it. I love anything with a Christmassy theme and Christmas pictures are some of my favourites to colour in. So I treated myself to these three books which are filled with Christmas pictures..
I’ve also received a new sketchpad and some other great goodies 🙂 So that’s it for my treats post. Do you like any of the books I’ve received, looking forward to any reviews I might make? I might just show off the colouring books in more detail in the future 🙂 I’m going to be more active in a few days, I’ve got lots of posts I want to get out and done before Christmas. Although it’s still November I can tell you that I have Christmas posts lined up already, plus lots more reviews I really want to get done and posted before the end of the year. I hope you’ll want to stick with me throughout the next few weeks, and a big THANK YOU to everyone who follows, likes, comments and shares this blog. You guys are the reason I love blogging and keep coming back. 😊😊😇🙃 ❤ ❤ ❤
