The lights are in house windows, the trees are on display and the decorations are making everything look festive and wonderful. That could only mean one thing. It’s officially Christmas!!! With only 9 days, I repeat, 9 days till Christmas Day, I thought it was finally time to review one of my most anticipated books this year… The Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher!
The Christmasaurus is a story about a boy named William Trundle, and a dinosaur, the Christmasaurus. It’s about how they meet one Christmas Eve and have a magical adventure. It’s about friendship and families, sleigh bells and Santa, singing elves and flying reindeer, music and magic. It’s about discovering your heart’s true desire, and learning that the impossible might just be possible.
If you couldn’t already tell from the festive makeover on my blog, it’s officially my FAVOURITE time of the year. The trees are up, the decorations are hanging in every room, and the fairy lights twinkle. It’s Christmas!!!
I’ve never really read many festive books, but I’ve read a few this year and they make me feel so warm and wintry. A couple of books I’ve read are Snowflakes and Christmas Cakes by Lindsey Paley, and The Silver Bells Christmas Pantomime by Lynsey James. I have a couple more ready to read as well, including The Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher. I’ve had it since last month and I’ve been dying to read it, but I patiently waited until now. I can’t wait!
When I was thinking about the books I like to read around Christmas, it made me wonder what others like. So, I turned to social media and asked my fellow bloggers. I loved some of their responses, and some of them made me want to read every book in their list! Here are their festive favourites!
Because I am so very generous and feeling the festive spirit (I have been since October), I’m running 2 eBook giveaways – one on Facebook, and one on Twitter.
If you’ve got a Kindle and you fancy winning a fun, lighthearted festive read, I’m giving you the chance to decide which one you can win! The choices will be different on here and Twitter, so if you’re feeling lucky (and if Santa says you’ve been good), you can enter to win 2 festive books!
This Christmas pantomime is about to be the talk of the town! Luna Bay’s festive preparations are well under way and the much anticipated annual pantomime is to be, once again, the highlight of the season. Too bad that the village’s very own actress and darling of Broadway, Alice Woods, isn’t feeling in the mood for Christmas.
Until the pantomime comes under threat and a grief-stricken Alice is forced to push her personal pain aside and step up to direct – after all, the show must go on..
So with (more than) a little help from her new found friends, not to mention one very gorgeous Hollywood A-list celebrity, the play begins to come together, but will Alice finally believe that Christmas is a time for miracles after all?
I belong to a number of blogging pages on Facebook, and for the past few days, people have been posting Secret Santa info. I’ve seen a craft one, a beauty one, and a general gift-giving one. I thought – how cool would it be to have a bookish one?! So, instead of waiting to see if one pops up, I thought I’d organise one myself!
