Book Review: The Tattooist of Auschwitz

I actually read this in February and I can’t believe it’s taken me until now to write the review for it – my bad! So anyway, here’s the official blurb: The Tattooist of Auschwitz is based on the true story of Lale and Gita Sokolov, two Slovakian Jews who survived Auschwitz...

My Autumn Book List

There’s something about Autumn that just screams reading. The nights are drawing in, the temperatures dropping and there’s nothing better than curling up with a good book. For me, Autumn and September usually go hand-in-hand. My brain still works in September-August years rather than...

Autumn To-Do List

I shared my March Goals yesterday and I promised that today I would share my Autumn To-Do list. I absolutely love celebrating the shifting of the seasons, and part of me choosing JOY as my Word of the Year was to stop me from saying things like “oh, it’s too hot!” or “I wish...

March Goals

I can’t believe today marks the first of March, and the first official day of Autumn here in the land down under (which I still find so weird!). I’ve never really set myself goals before beyond the ones I set, and try to stick to, in January. But I’ve been so inspired by the ones...

I can’t believe today is the last day of February! Where the heck did time go? I’ve actually surprised myself with the number of books I’ve read this month – 7!!! Not bad considering it’s the shortest month of the year! Here’s what I’ve been reading this...

Book Review: Still Me

The minute I saw that JoJo Moyes was releasing a third Louisa Clark novel, I knew I had to read it ASAP and if you watched my unboxing on my IG Stories, you’ll have seen how excited I was. I picked this up last Friday and I had finished it by Sunday afternoon. Because I just couldn’t...

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...
