Tale As Old As Time: Beauty and the Beast Afternoon Tea

Tale as old as time: beauty and the beast afternoon tea

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!

Blog tour: Noah Can't Even by Simon Green

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.

Blog Tour: Wishbones by Virginia MacGregor

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.

Book Review: Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Into the Water Paula Hawkins

Like a lot of readers who read and love Paula's debut, I was very excited to get my mitts on and start reading Into the Water. There is always that small worry that after a huge bestselling debut, that the second book won't be anywhere near as good, but let me stop you there. You cannot compare this to The Girl On the Train as it is SO different. Yes it's still a thriller with multiple characters etc, but the overall story could not be further from what we knew from The Girl on the Train.
