Weekend Book Buzz – 8/9 April 2017

Weekend Book Buzz

It’s the weekend! Not only that, but it’s the weekend my children wait for aaalllllllll year! Sure, they love Christmas, and they love Easter, but the weekend that generates the most excitement in our house each year is…


We live opposite the rail line, so trains have long been a fascination for our kids, but there’s something extra special about steamtrains. The smell, the sound . . .

Okay, so maybe I’ve been looking forward to it too!  😊

So, while I’m busy exploring the world of steam with the family this weekend, here’s a recap of what’s happened this week on my blog:

Patriot and Loyalist release JTWYA avail

Top Ten Tuesday – Favourite Bookish Gifts
Word Nerd Wednesday – What Do You Call It? (Inspired by Just The Way You Are by Pepper Basham)
First Line Friday – Beyond Justice (Cara Putman)

~ Blog Tours ~
