As usual when I pick up a new job I tend to go over board in my enthusiasm and desire to be the best I can at that job, often jumping with both feet before I realise what I’ve taken on and exactly how deep the waters really are.
This new job has been no different than anything else I’ve taken on in the last year, I threw myself in whole hearted and wanted to do everything and know everything and have now racked up a large collection of books to read and review.
After looking at this pile I’ve decided that I will have to specialise; and have decided to specialise in children’s books and speculative fiction.
The picture I’ve attached is the pile of physical children’s books I’ve received to review since deciding to specialise, I also have several to read from NetGalley and I’m having to find a system for doing this whilst working and having time to relax.
The next book I have to read is Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month for October 2016: ‘The Secret of Nightingale Wood‘ by Lucy Strange.
- A beautifully told debut with a classic feel.
- Reminiscent of Michelle Magorian’s ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’ with a touch of ‘The Secret Garden’, with the more contemporary appeal of Emma Carroll.
- Gorgeous cover perfect for Christmas gifting.
