Excited is an understatement!

I have been waiting… The last time I purchased a Harry Potter book was many a year ago at Waterstones at midnight… Not dressed up I hasten to add – I didn’t go that far! But new stuff. Breathe. It’s going to be massive! Can’t wait to see the new script of Harry Potter and…

Websites!

Where do you go online to find out about books? Are there any good places which recommend you books according to what you have read already? I’ve been asked to do some research into good book websites and thought that you could all help! Obviously this website… But where else? I sometimes look at goodreads.com,…

Currently reading: Darkmouth by Shane Hegarty
