May 2018 – Get Caught Reading Month

It only feels like yesterday that it was January, now we’re starting May. Spring is definitely here and hopefully, it will stick around for a little while. I’m really enjoying sharing with you different National Day/Month, you get to learn something new and exciting. May marks Get Caught Reading Month, a nationwide campaign to promote the fun of reading books for all ages.

The campaign was launched in 1999 by the Association of American Publishers and now managed by Every Child a Reader with support from the Lois Lenski Covey Foundation. To celebrate Get Caught Reading Month is really easy you just need to dig your nose into a book and forget about the concerns of other peoples’ opinions. Get Caught Reading Month is a great chance to meet other bibliophiles as well!

Book Review // The Curse of Time

It’s that time of the month again, I’m excited to be sharing with you today my thoughts on The Curse of Time by Marjorie Mallon! Unfortunately, there was no suitable book tour during March, so I had to skip that month, but I did share my thoughts on Suicide Squad thanks to March’s Reading Challenge from Blogger Book Nook. I’m trying my hardest to read at least one book each month, to reach my Goodreads Reading Challenge.

This blog book tour is hosted by Jenny Marston, over at Neverland Blog Tours, I have found some new loves since participating in book tours. I don’t think this is going to end with myself really enjoying this month’s book. I am the fifth stop on The Curse of Time Blog Tour hosted by Jenny, I am also sharing today with Whispering Stories so please check out her blog to read what she thought.

March 2018 – National Fragrance Day

Today marks National Fragrance Day, I adore fragrances and sweet smelling things, as you could probably tell by my couple of fragrance reviews, including Monsoon Rose Gold and Accessorize Love Lily. To celebrate, I wanted to review a couple of fragrances that I’ve been dying to try recently.

First though, what exactly is National Fragrance Day?

It’s as simple as celebrating your favourite scent if you’re a lover of fragrances you can celebrate just by choosing a new fragrance but you could even take a trip to the florist if you enjoy the scent of flowers or how about baking a cake if you like that sweet smell. Whatever is enjoyable for your noses, do it, our nose knows best.
