Weekend Book Buzz – 14/15 July 2018

Weekend Book Buzz

Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! It’s been another quiet week on my blog this week, with school holidays AND hubby away. But this weekend will be anything but quiet, because:

(a) my mum’s a Bastille Day baby. Happy birthday, Mum!
(b) we’re celebrating 80 years since the opening of our current church building;

and last, but definitely not least


Are you celebrating anything this weekend? Whatever you’re doing, I hope it’s a lovely one—with a good book, too, of course!
