Se7en’s Fabulous Fun Post #360

January 30th, 2018 · 4 Comments

School’s are back and we, as usual aren’t quite, we are in full summer swing instead. Early morning and late evening visits to the beach and in the middle of the day, when it is too hot to breathe… we are reading, reading, reading…

Book of the Week


Well, since I last wrote a Fabulous Fun Post… I listened to possibly the most boring book on earth… so I will deftly ignore telling you about that, just to say that if anyone ever suggests you read a book called “Why we get fat…” save yourself twenty one chapters of tedium and eat a salad for supper. You will feel better for it… Meanwhile I rewarded myself by listening to The Girl Who Drank the Moon, by Kelly Barnhill… Love love love… this book has ALL the MAGIC. A miserable town that gives up their youngest baby to a hungry witch every year… and a confused magical woman that finds the baby every year, who can’t understand why these folk leave their babies out, and she makes sure these children grow up happy and loved, as well as imparting a little magic into each of them. Except Luna managed to drink more than a little magic when she was rescued… and she changes everything… this is a middle grade reader, think: fairytale, two parallel stories running alongside each other, with the main protagonists destined to collide. Loved it completely.

That’s us… hope you have the most fabulous week!!!

    I still can’t believe I’m one of the winners 🙂 I should say I never win anything more often 🙂

    If you’re interested in how nature works and memoir, I highly recommend Lab Girl – I’m about 35% in and LOVING IT.
