It’s a good problem to have… the problem of what to read next, so many books out there, and with the arrival of kindle years ago it seems you can buy books for a lot less than a magazine pretty often.
I have read nearly all of the books on my bookcases, some have come and gone that i never read but that is pretty rare for me if I have wanted them and chosen them, I am usually enthusiastic about books so much so that I want to read them soon as I get them.

On the next in the whimsy Cosy bookworm series, today it is about judging a book by its cover… we are not supposed to… but how many of us do it anyway.
I am a big reader, I go through little phases of how much I read but I am a big reader, books are wonderful!
However, books have covers and we are certainly not supposed to judge by it, the cover does not indicate how well the book will be written or how exciting it will be, it does not tell us how page turning it will feel, and it does not let us know if it has the magic of good storytelling, or all the facts we ‘need’ on a topic. It does not tell us if the book is factually correct … or if it will REALLY make us laugh.

Wow, this series got of to a dramatic start, after hearing it could be a slow start I was surprised how captured I was by ‘ A court of Thorns and Roses’- a book I had no idea it was a beauty and the beast inspired retelling but read it thinking… ‘this is really like beauty and the beast’.. HA, so Sarah J Mass did a great job then.

I can really go through reading phases with genres, and moods for books can really change at times.
I found myself in a bit of a reading slump that even one of my Cookbook Nook reads waiting on my shelf couldn’t solve (great reads usually to me in the cozy mystery department)
I needed a book that would grip me, one of those ones you just can’t put down easily. One where you just need to know what happens as soon as you can.

Here is my Hygge times – well some of them – which happened as March unfolded, as we enter April it is spring showers and bursts of sun, make the most of appreciating every season and try to look for what you love about it.
During March one of my absolute favorite things has been my new MUG- an actual mug for my drinks themed to RED NOSE DAY.
Red nose day, for those who don’t know, is a charity fund-raising day which happens every two years in the UK, and it is supported by comedians hence the red nose.

Lets get Spring Relaxation
Wanted to share with you the chance to see some gorgeous sights I have recently enjoyed with ‘Man of Mine’.
Spring is finally here, although I am still regularly wrapped up in a big coat and cosy hat, I am feeling spring-like when I get the chance to take in sights like this of the glorious English countryside.
Hope you will enjoy seeing these pictures we took, they were not taken all on the same day or even week, but you will get to enjoy some of the gorgeous delights nature gives. Hope they bring a spring flourish into YOUR day too.

‘The wonderful wizard of oz’ (oz series book 1) I HAD to blog about this book, I read lots of books and this one struck a chord with me and I knew I wanted to share the love of it with you here at the blog. It’s a classic read and I was keen to see if it differed from the movie and what the experience of reading it would be.
I love the movie but I’m not a super fan and haven’t seen it a million times, as such I don’t remember all the film detail, but what I can tell you is I was hoping to be swept away on a nostalgic tour of Oz and a chance to – via the (FREE) kindle read- rediscover old friends like the cowardly lion and the tin man. I was hoping for joy.
