Recipe: Sesame Seed and Salted Pretzels

I made these a couple of weekends ago for the Super Bowl (yes, I am Brit that watches American Football #deal). It was the first time I had ever attempted pretzels but my word were they delicious! I used a combination of different recipes to create this one, so I thought I would share them with...

Book Review: The American

Happy Wednesday lovelies. It occurred to me over the weekend that on my reviews so far, I haven’t actually given any of them a star rating, which is a little remiss of me. So I’m going to change that and this will be the first review with a star rating – though you’ll have...

Recipe: GF Raspberry Banana Bread

Rebranding this little space as The Bookery has really pushed me back into baking. I mean this can’t be an online version of my bricks-and-mortar store if I don’t do any baking right?! And I am LOVING it! My waistline (and Mr S’s) not so much, but thankfully, most of what I make...

Happy Friday lovely! What have you got planned for this weekend? I joined our community garden this past week and my induction is this Sunday! Wish me luck! For those of you that don’t already know, Brisbane is where I currently call home, so I’m pretty well acquainted with the...

Book Review: The Food of Love

Happy Wednesday lovely! How’s your week treating you? I finished this book over a week ago and it’s still with me. That’s the sign of a great book, isn’t it?! Here’s the official blurb: A proud family. Snubbed by aristocratic neighbour Lord Frampton at a coming-of-age...

Into The Shallows {A Short Story} – Part Two

I paddle as hard as I can for the shore, my muscles screaming in response but to no avail. All I can think is I need to get to Louis as quick as possible. Within seconds I’m in the shallows. I leap off my board, pulling the leash from my ankle and letting my board drift in the surf. Louis is...

Book Review: Girl Out Of Water

I think the last time I read a YA book, I actually was a teenager. And before you ask, no Harry Potter is not a YA book or a children’s book. But when I saw this on a Bustle list last year, I knew I had to add it to my Summer Reading List. I picked it up from the library on Saturday, started...

I don’t know about you but the minute the temperatures start to creep up and the sun is up before 5.30am, the last thing I was to do is spend hours slaving over a hot stove. And that’s saying something coming from someone who loves cooking as much as she loves books! When summer arrives...

My 2018 TBR List

I’ll be honest, I actually keep my list in multiple places, and I have multiple lists. I have one for each season that I add to as I go through the year (you can catch my summer one here), as well as a main one that I add to and update throughout the year. I started my 2018 list back in...

Best Book Series EVER

I was chatting with my Instafriend Megs (@ampersand_reads) the other day about our favourite book series and she encouraged me to write the post. So thank you Megs! Today is all about series. And I’m not just talking Harry Potter – though you better believe that makes the list! The...

Book Review: Moscow Rules

I have to say, I’m still finding it so weird that I can write out my thoughts about each book I read. Usually, I just try and tell someone, who’s probably nowhere near as interested as I am, but now I get to tell you! And I love that! Okay, enough rambling! Confessions time: I actually...
