Word.

I have always been a lover of words. Big ones, small ones, tasty and smelly alike. I like writing and I adore reading. Books are a huge pleasure, and working in a bookshop was my best job ever despite the appallingly low pay. I lost track of books a bit when Syd was tiny, but I started a challenge to read 50 books this year and am loving getting back into reading properly.

I am always looking for my next good read so was delighted when my friend Kate started a new book review blog, using her experience in the book trade, and her love of a good read, to help your book club, or just yourself, choose the next thing to read. I met Kate through her existing blog, Crafts On Sea, as we started blogging about the same time last year. We bonded further over our previous incarnations as member of girl bands with names of dubious taste. But that is another story!

To celebrate the launch of BOOK CLUB RECOMMENDATIONS Kate has offered a prize of a £10 Amazon voucher so that one of you lovely lot can get them self a new book or two!! To enter complete the rafflecopter form below, make sure you answer the question to validate your entry- What book would you recommend for Kate and I to read next? Answers in the comments of this post please.

Terms and Conditions

1) One rafflecopter form per IP address please.

2) Entry closes at midnight on the 4th of April.

3) The prize takes the form of an email £10 GBP Amazon voucher which will be supplied to the email address you enter with shortly after the draw takes place.

4) Over 18s only. Entries are welcome worldwide as the prize is supplied via email, it is the entrants responsibility to ensure the voucher is valid for use in their location, no alternatives will be offered.

Good luck all,

    Ghost Girl by Torey Hayden

    It’s based on a true story about a little girl who believed she wasn’t real. Torey Hayden, also a character in the book, teaches the child and tries to get the child to talk.
