Weekend Book Buzz – 25/26 August 2018

Weekend Book Buzz

Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! It’s the last week in August! *Does happy spring is nearly here dance* And today, we had our first thunder storm in aaaaaages. And I got to lie in bed after an afternoon snooze just enjoying the sound. Do weekends get any better than that?

Well, apart from adding a good book into the mix!
