Shopping and other exciting things.

Hey, Guys.

I hope you are enjoying my blog so far.

A few days ago, I took a trip to my local high street.

I brought these incredibly cute playing cards from a charity shop.

They are really good and really cute.

Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of them to show you but they are from paper chase which are really good for stationery. http://www.paperchase.co.uk.

I'm reading Harry Potter again and I'm absolutely loving  it even though I know what's going to happen next.

According to the weather forecast,  the sun has finally come and  t is going to shine brighter than ever!

Summer is on its way so no more gloomy mornings. Hopefully, it won't change till winter! :)

Also please check out. innocentdaisyes.wordpress.com an amazing blog.

 I just wanted to show you some of my favorite books, but seeing as I've already made a blog about books here is a collection of them.


Enjoy :)

Thanks for reading

The High Street - Alice Melvin

Note: I read this book in Dutch, so I will use the names as they were used in there. :)

I saw this book some months ago in the book store and I was really interested in it, and finally my library had it in their collection.

This book is really adorable, it is about a girl named Sanne who is going shopping and has a list of 10 things that she wants to find. We join her on her shopping trip, and we see what she buys and if she finds everything.

The book was fun, most of it was in rhyme and I really loved it, it just gave the book that extra oomph. I loved that you could open the flaps and open up a whole new 2 pages with the inside of the shop and a little part with what Sanne was buying.

Sadly that was also the one thing I didn't like. It was repetitive, each store had the same rhyme/same list, just with one sentence standing out because she was buying that item. It got a bit boring, and I mostly skimmed through it, and just went on looking at the stores. Because some of them had gorgeous details and little things that just made it fun. Trying to find Sanne's items was also fun.

The last pages were really great and it was quite a nice surprise. I won't say what it is, be surprised yourself, but I can say that I was delighted. Just one last thing, poor Sanne.

The illustrations are gorgeous, it is beautiful to see the store from the outside on one part of the flap and as you open it the store opens and you can look inside. See people make chocolates, see people play instruments, see people climb ladders, it was really great fun and I enjoyed it. I could look at these illustrations for a long time. :) So many tiny details, so gorgeous!

Would I recommend this book? Yes, I would. I am sure everyone will love it. Kids will love to open up the flaps and see the stores from the inside, see what Sanne is buying.

Sinfully Yours by Cara Elliott
Sinfully Yours - Cara Elliott

Such a fun story!!  I loved the Sloane sisters and their scandalous writing habits.  Running behind for her deadline, Anna agrees to attend a summer party to find some quiet writing time.  Instead she finds Davenport. A handsome man with quite a reputation - and not a good one. He is on the hunt for a potential murderer, but the attractive Anna i causing a distraction.

I really enjoyed how the two characters interacted - how all of the characters did actually. Grumpy old scots, meddling mamas, and nosy maids really helped make the story jump off the pages. As Anna and Davenport try to find out who is planning murder and how, they go down several false rabbit hole and I loved how the suspense was drawn out. I was very happy with just about everything in the story.

One little thing stood out that I didn't really care for, and that was how Anna and Davenport first hooked up. It had a hint of manipulation - not much, but just a tad and it just didn't fit with who they were everywhere else.

*This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

The High Street Bride's Guide
The High Street Bride's Guide - Samantha Birch [bc:The High Street Bride's Guide|21525472|The High Street Bride's Guide|Samantha Birch|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1395398229s/21525472.jpg|40851268]

I have to admit that when I saw 'The High-Street Bride's Guide on NetGalley I thought it was a 'Rom Com'. On reading the blurb I realised it was a non-fictional guide to achieving the wedding you want without having to take out a second mortgage and I was intrigued.

I got married over thirty years ago before the infinite choices provided by the internet and the modern preoccupation with designer weddings however I have a daughter in her twenties and decided the opportunity to update myself on today's wedding choices was too good to miss.

The guide is user friendly, full of anecdotal humour which presents the factual information in easy to read bytes. Broken into key element chapters with links on the contents page it is possible to easily dip in and out of this eBook a must requirement for any guide. Packed with options and cost cutting tips this guide is a great aide memoir for whatever type of special day you want and caters for all budgets.

Brides-to-be can save hours of research and disappointment by following the guide's advice and finding the right shops and websites immediately. 'The High-Street Bride's Guide' uses professional research and personal experience in every chapter. With regular updates it should be a bestseller.

I received a copy of this book from Harper Collins UK Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Scandalously Yours (The Hellions of High Street)
Scandalously Yours - Cara Elliott Olivia isn’t at all like the typical Miss out in society, she’s well read, very into politics and isn’t afraid to say exactly what is on her mind. The oldest of the Sloane sisters, she’s not interested in marriage, she would rather write political essays under the name “Beacon” for one of London’s biggest newspapers.

Wrexham is known as the “Perfect Hero” and despises the name. A retired military officer, he’s fought many battles – but none like the one with Olivia. Prescott (aka Scottie), Wrexham’s son is determined to find a new wife for his father and a Mother for him. He places an ad in a London newspaper to attract anyone who could replace the woman his father is considering – the one he calls “The Steel Corset”.

When Olivia and Wrexham meet for the first time, it’s over a rather unconventional game of chess. They battle with witty banter and she leaves Wrexham curious and wanting to know more about this woman. He’s intrigued by her – which gets them both into some trouble!

The two propose a truce, when Wrexham asks Olivia to help him with his speech for parliament on a controversial bill helping soldiers and some much needed social reform. In the midst of all this Wrexham makes some rather nasty enemies and his son is kidnapped!

I adored Olivia and Wrexham, they are probably one of my favorite couples. Neither of them care about rules of society and are looking for more. They have intelligent conversations, debate with one another and really care about making the world a better place. Both care very much for Scottie and are willing to risk scandal to rescue him from the clutches of Wrexham’s enemies.

Would I recommend this read? Most definitely! Cara has done a great job with this story and I couldn’t put it down. Olivia is a wonderful characters, so confident and unafraid of speaking her mind and being exactly who she is. She doesn’t care what society thinks of her, but rather what she thinks of herself. Would I read more by this author? In a heart beat. I will be looking for more in this series to see what happens to Anna and Caro.
