Sunday Sevens #90

I know, I know…I’ve missed a week again! Recently I’ve felt like blogging has been at the bottom of my to-do list ūüė¶ BUT I do still have 7 photos to share with you from the last couple of weeks!

1. My current read is To Kill A Mockingbird. As much as I love reading, I have just never had the chance to read this book. However, my Mum was re-reading it when she came to visit at Christmas so she left me her copy…published in 1976!!!

Review: What You Left Behind by Samantha Hayes

This book by Samantha Hayes and is my most recent pick from Blogging For Books.  What You Left Behnd is a crime thriller book, which is one of my favourite genres.  I have had the book for a while now and I must admit that it took me a good few chapters to get interested in the storyline.  But, once I was hooked, I could not put it down and read the rest of the book quickly!
