Blog Tour Stop - A Parcel for Anna Browne by Miranda Dickinson

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for the gorgeously sparkly A Parcel for Anna Browne!

I am a huge fan of Miranda Dickinson and her books are sure to bring a smile to my face so this book had me excited from the word go!

What They Say:

The gift of a lifetime?

Anna Browne is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life. Her day job as a receptionist in bustling London isn't exactly her dream, yet she has everything she wants. But someone thinks Anna Browne deserves more . . .

When a parcel addressed to Anna arrives, she has no idea who has sent it. Inside she finds a beautiful gift - one that is designed to be seen. And so begins a series of incredible deliveries, each one bringing Anna further out of the shadows and encouraging her to become the woman she was destined to be. As Anna grows in confidence, others begin to notice her - and her life starts to change.
But who is sending the mysterious gifts, and why?

What I Say:

Right from the beginning, this book had me hooked! I was drawn …

My Review of Five Go Glamping by Liz Tipping

Hi! Well, I've been very busy reading and this is the 3rd book I have read in a month! That is a lot for me! So, here is my review for Five Go Glamping by Liz Tipping/

What They Say:

Glamping Check list
Festival tickets
Double check best Instagram filter
Avoid thinking about work/Connor/five year plan!!
A four day break from her hectic life to relax in the countryside and hang out at a local festival (for free!) is just what Fiona Delaney needs. With her best friends, great tunes and a cool looking hat her Instagram shots are going to look A-Mazing!
Until suddenly glamping starts to feel a lot more like camping and Fiona’s in desperate search of a comfy chair, wi-fi and a chilled glass of wine. But when she finally makes it to the local pub she discovers this trip could be more than just a holiday, it might just change her life forever…

What I Say:

As I said in my previous post about this book, it intrigued me simply due to the fact that it was about Glamping and there was mention of a y…

My Review of What Milo Saw by Virginia MacGregor

Welcome to my Review of the incredible What Milo Saw by Virginia MacGregor

What They Say:

A BIG story about a small boy who sees the world a little differently
Milo curled his thumb and forefinger together to make a small hole and held his fingers up to Al's eyes. 'Look through here. That's what I see. Kind of, only worse.'
'Wow, that must be amazing.'
Milo shrugged. 'Not really.'
'I mean, it makes you focus, doesn't it? I bet you see all kinds of stuff that other people miss.'

What I Say:

I really wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book. I had heard nothing but praise for it but just really had no idea...

Milo is an incredible little boy. He's 9 years old and he sees things differently to us. This makes him just completely astonishing to me! He's so clever! He's intuitive, gutsy, kind, caring, honest and sensitive. He cares so much for his Gran (and his little pet pig Hamlet) that he's willing to lose everyth…

My Review of Summer Secrets by Jane Green

Welcome to my review of Summer Secrets by Jane Green. I am a huge Jane Green fan and I have read all of her books and loved every one of them! I read this a little while ago but struggled to write a review that made any sense. I figured I best try now...

What They Say:

June, 1998. At twenty-seven, Cat Coombs is struggling. She lives in London, works as a journalist, and parties hard. When she discovers the identity of the father she never knew she had, it sends her into a spiral. She makes mistakes that cost her the budding friendship of the only women who have ever welcomed her. And nothing is ever the same after that.

June, 2014. Cat's life has come full circle. She wants to make amends to those she has hurt. Her quest takes her to Nantucket, the gorgeous New England island where the women she once called family still live. What Cat doesn't realize is that these women, her real father's daughters, have secrets of their own. As the past collides with the present, Cat mus…
