#SixforSunday – Favourite Books of 2019

So I’m late (already – it’s only the second week!) with my #SixforSunday post but I still wanted to complete it! Last year I managed to read 125 books – I’m feeling quite proud of myself for that! – and wanted to see if I could manage picking the top 6. Quite the challenge, I’m…

Sprinkle of Sorcery – Michelle Harrison

Stars: ***** I absolutely LOVED ‘A Pinch of Magic’ when I read it – it was full of adventure, family and of course…magic!
