Orangeboy- Patrice Lawrence
I loved Patrice’s debut novel which centres around drugs, gangs, friendship and family. It’s well worth a read.
Indigo Donut- Patrice Lawrence
I recently read and adored this book which is another heart-warming family read. I gave this one five stars.
The Next Together- Lauren James
I didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did. Packed full of time travel which isn’t usually my thing!
Mad Girl- Bryony Gordon
I enjoyed this memoir about the author’s experience with mental health!
The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time- Mark Haddon
I absolutely adored this book. So unique and special.
Am I Normal Yet?- Holly Bourne
Another mental health story… not intentional but wonderful all the same. I love Holly Bourne’s writing.
Paper Butterflies- Lisa Heathfield
Such an intense read!
Infinite Sky- C.J Flood
A beautiful read!
The Wolves Of Willoughby Chase- Joan Aiken
I only discovered this book last year! I absolutely lapped it up. A stunning piece of children’s literature.
A Boy Made Of Blocks- Keith Stuart
Oops, another book featuring a character on the autistic spectrum. This one is WONDERFUL and I can’t recommend it enough. A raw account of the main character’s struggle with his son.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is a Father’s Day freebie. I decided to go with some of the most memorable father’s in literature…so here goes!
- Mr Wormwood– Matilda– Roald Dahl- He’s an awful father. He doesn’t care about his wonderfully intelligent daughter!
- Lucius Malfoy– Harry Potter– J.K. Rowling- He encourages Draco to be unkind to others. He makes Draco think he’s far superior. I don’t like that!
- George Mole- Adrian Mole– Sue Townsend- George is hardly a role model to Adrian!
- Old Nick- Room– Emma Donoghue- Thinking of the character just makes my blood boil.
Now some memorable in a good way fathers!
- Otto Frank- The Diary of Anne Frank– Anne Frank- Without Otto, we wouldn’t have Anne’s diary.
- Hans Hubermann– The Book Thief– Markus Zusak- I featured Rosa in my mother list, so I couldn’t help but mention Hans too. He’s a super sweet father.
- Atticus Finch– To Kill A Mockingbird– Harper Lee- I couldn’t put together a list about fathers and not include Atticus. He’s super special. Kind, caring, respectful and he truly loves his children.
- Bob Cratchit– A Christmas Carol- Charles Dickens- He just wanted to do well by his family!
- Arthur Weasley– Harry Potter- J.K. Rowling- Loved his wife, mentioned his wife in my mothers list, so of course had to include him. A set of wonderful (present) parents!
- Carson Drew– Nancy Drew- Carolyn Keene- I loved reading about Nancy’s father when I was younger. I remember always thinking he sounded amazing!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are the Top Ten Books from any given genre that we’ve recently added to our TBR list. I was going to go with contemporary, but then I realised it would be a similar list to last weeks! So I’ve decided to go with thrillers. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know I do love a good thriller as well.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is a Mother’s Day freebie. I decided to go with some of the best mother’s in literature…so here goes!
Marmee- Mrs March- Little Women- How can you not love her? She cares for her four girls so much and is just a wonderful human being ❤
Molly Weasley- Harry Potter– Adorable woman! I love her feisty spirit and devotion to her family.
Lily Potter- Harry Potter– We don’t read nearly enough about her, but from what we do see, we know that she and James loved Harry immensely.
Rosa Hubermann- The Book Thief– A fierce lady but definitely kind at heart.
Mother- The Railway Children- She cares for her children despite the madness going on with her husband.
Natalie Prior- Divergent– Another woman I adore. She tries to protect her children no matter what.
Rosaleen- The Secret Life of Bees– Rosaleen may not be Lily’s mother, in fact, she’s her maid, but she cares for Lily as if she was her own child.
Ma- Room– Ma does everything she can to protect Jack. She devises a plan for them to escape as she wants the best for Jack!
Marilla- Anne of Green Gables– She may not be mother to Anne by birth, but she’s a wonderful adopted mother despite a rocky start.
Romy’s mum- All The Rage– Romy’s mum and boyfriend are supportive throughout the story. I love reading about carers who are actually there for their children.
What did you pick for your Mother’s Day freebie this week? It may not be Mother’s Day in the U.K. but it’s never the wrong time to celebrate mothers!
