What I am Reading and your chance to win!

One of the things I am always asked is what I am reading at the moment, everybody knows I normally have several books on the go at once! I enjoy reading all sorts of different authors and like both fiction and non-fiction.

Lottie is starting to work her way through our Roald Dahl collection at the moment and I am thinking about re-reading them myself soon as they are so good. She likes The BFG but her favourite is the Rhymes- she likes the Little Red Riding Hood one and the The Three Little Pigs one.

I still have a nice big pile of other books from Christmas to read that I haven’t got around to yet. I got a mix of fiction and non-fiction which is good because I like both and prefer to switch and change depending on what I feel like. Lottie and I got the new Tim Peake book which is really interesting and I have also picked up Sky Song by Abi Elphinstone with my birthday money so have plenty of books to keep me busy.

At the moment I am reading Bad Dad by David Walliams, which is quite funny and Hamish and the Never People which is now getting really good and hard to put down! I am also looking forward to a few book reviews that we have coming up on the blog- our next one is for  ‘Hopeless Heroes- Here comes Hercules’ which was funny- look out for the review if you have children around my age looking for something good to read.

We would love to know what books other people have found popular with their children and we have a reading prize bundle for one of our followers to enjoy with the new David Walliams book; Bad Dad, two Roald Dahl books; James and The Giant Peach and The BFG and Ratburger Audiobook. I hope you will share your ideas of great books for children so I can add them to my wish list in plenty of time for the Easter holidays.

    I loved the Narnia series, such great stories and they have deeper meanings that you can find now when you reread them as an adult

    My 6 year old bookworm has just finished reading The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton and absolutely loved it. I remember reading these books when I was younger so it’s wonderful seeing her discover and love them as much as I did.

    Our 2 year old loves the Oi Frog and Oi Dog books at the moment. They always raise a giggle and he’s memorised them so they’re helping him with the early stages of reading and rhyming already.

    Roald Dahl are still really popular with my two! They loved ‘The Twits’ & The BFG & ‘James & the giant peach’ & ‘Esio Trot’ & ‘Revolting Rhymes’. We even have a cookbook! Oh can can I forget ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’! I enjoy reading them to them & they are amazing in the their ability to remain current & magical!
