What We’ve Been Reading Lately

I’ve recently shared what I’ve been reading in July in my Monthly Loves post. I’m hoping in August I might get a bit more reading done and I have bought two books…

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

And I’ve also bought Behind Closed Doors by B A Paris.

I’m really excited to get cracking with both of these!

Bean has been reading¬†Everything’s Amazing (sort of) (Tom Gates).

This is the second Tom Gates book she has read and she is really into them now. It’s just a shame she left this one in Ikea…

We’ve been working on the goal of her learning her times tables over the summer holidays so we bought her this book to help. She’s really enjoyed colouring it in so far which is good!

With Jelly Baby we are trying really hard to keep up her reading while she is off school. We have just started to work with Boolino which is great as she loved the book they recently sent her to review. George and The New Craze was perfect for her, we read it together, she reads one page and I read another.


The story was the perfect length and it was totally relatable. I think she not only learnt how to read some new words but she also learnt something too – about how a craze can be all consuming one minute and then over the next! A valuable life lesson I must say! The pictures were really sweet too and Little Miss J definitely enjoyed reading it.
