Book Club Discussion: THE ART OF BEING NORMAL

In January we read THE ART OF BEING NORMAL by Lisa Williamson, as selected by Livs. People on Twitter couldn’t stop talking about it, so we just HAD to check it out! Watch our Book Club video so see what we thought: (Since we’ve been so busy this month, we had to improvise and film […]

December Book Club Discussion: HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX

  This month we read HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX by J.K. Rowling, because Rosi (@bookeating_girl) had never read it before! *gasp* We’re always having Harry Potter discussions in the office, so we had plenty to say in our video! We also have the editor of the Harry Potter books, Emma Matthewson, […]

Hot Key Book Club Pick: HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX

Hello, my name is Rosi and I am a children’s book nerd. I have an Elmer the Elephant badge pinned to my coat, a WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE fabric print hanging in my room and I’ve seen every Hunger Games movie with my Mockingjay pin proudly on display. Not to mention of course that […]

Hot Key Book Club Discussion: THE IMAGINARY

This month we read THE IMAGINARY by A.F. Harrold for the Hot Key Book Club. If you’d like to see my review with lots of pretty illustrations, you can watch the video below. Rudger is Amanda’s real imaginary friend. When he appears in her wardrobe one day, they immediately spark up the most wonderful, playful […]

November Book Club Pick: THE IMAGINARY by A.F. Harrold

For our next book club title I’ve chosen THE IMAGINARY by A.F. Harrold, which was published in hardback and epub last month. I’m not familiar with A.F. Harrold’s novels or poetry (yet) but am very curious, having looked at the range of his work. And I love the premise of this book – it feels […]

October Book Club Pick: THE LETTER FOR THE KING

I couldn’t have been more excited when Sanne asked me to pick a book to discuss in the next Book Club! But alas, with a great power comes a great responsibility and I couldn’t just pick one. I knew I wanted a younger voice/narrator as I’ve been reading older fiction lately and had a long list […]

September Book Club Discussion: HOLES

This month I chose to read HOLES by Louis Sachar for the Hot Key Book Club. If you’d like to see what the Hot Key team thought of the book you can watch us chat about that exact thing in this video featuring myself (Jen), Emma, Asmaa, Sara and Sarah. Before reading this book I […]

What Should I Read On Holiday?

Whether your holiday was so long ago that all that remains is some pesky sand that won’t budge from the bottom of your suitcase or whether you’re one of the lucky ones like me (I’m so smug I’m not even sorry) still busy stocking up on SPF yet to head away there’s one question that plagues […]

September Book Club Pick: HOLES

It’s autumn, summer is over, school is back and everyone is sad. Except me, I’m not sad at all, in fact I’m really excited because this month it’s my turn to pick a book to discuss in the next Book Club! We’ve looked at a few books for older audiences recently so we thought we’d […]
