This year has been the year for Beauty and the Beast fans. With the live action remake of the animated film showing in cinemas from March, various merchandise collaborations etc, it made complete sense to mix in afternoon tea with a Beauty and the Beast theme. The Kensington Hotel were the ones with this ingenious idea and not surprisingly it has been extremely popular, so much so that this was originally meant to be a roughly two week attraction, but it was then extended to June and now until November! I was hugely fortunate to get a table booking in May, particularly as I missed out on the first round of bookings. This was back in March and next thing I new May had come round and my Mum and I were heading up to London!

The cover for Noah Can't Even was revealed at Scholastic's Book Blogger Feast back in January. It got a lot a laughs let me tell you! I really think this one is going to grab a lot of attention on the bookshelves. This has been described as part coming of age, part coming out story and it sounds awkward and hilarious- just like my teenage years and I am delighted to be on the blog tour for it today. Simon is sharing a brilliant guestpost on his growing pains.

There are some books you read that you know that everyone should read as they give an inner voice to topics that you won't necessarily find around you, and this one is Wishbones. A heartbreaking but hugely important read, I am delighted to be on the blog tour for this incredible book today. As part of the tour I am sharing my thoughts on Wishbones and there is also a chance to win a copy of the book at the end of this post.
