And another month bites the dust… apologies but I was listening to Queen and this seemed appropriate when I typed it. But, August is all but over, where did you go?
Had a chance to finally get back out in the garden again as we have some nice weather. The potatoes are now all dug up and stored in the shed. I am gathering some seeds from flowers that are coming to an end, picking runner beans and sweet peas on a daily basis and the tomatoes are finally starting to change colour. I do grow tomatoes outside so they do take a bit longer.
Here’s a few garden pics for you…
Now onto the books I have read this week…
I was only planning on reading a couple of chapters of Starlight Cottage by K.T. Dady before going to bed, 1am saw me putting the books down! This is a gorgeous read that led me to the wonderful sounding Pepper Bay. I adored everything about this book and I cant wait to see where the author goes with this series. Full review soon as part of the blog tour.

Lonely Planet publish many books and this one caught my eye. Best Day Walks Great Britain – Easy Escapes Into Nature. This is a reference book that gives plenty of ideas for walks around Great Britain, they are long or shorter, easier or harder. This book will give you some ideas for a day out, but I will mention that you will probably need a more comprehensive map such as an OS.
Having recently helped out with the launch of the new digital publisher Embla, I decided to pick up one of their two new publications. Rachel Ryan’s Resolutions by Laura Starkey is the story of, Rachel and how she is trying to make changes and uses constantly tweaked new years resolutions list. This is contemporary fiction story that I enjoyed, light-hearted and I will post a full review closer to publication date.

I own several books by Caroline Mitchell and The Midnight Man is the first one I have read… I know, I know! This is the second book that is due to be published by Embla and I adored the spooky, creepy eeriness of the story. This is a story that starts 25 years ago and then jumps to the present day when one of five teens go missing. A mix of urban legend, rumour and something more sinister are at play in this crime, thriller, mystery. I really enjoyed it, not too frightening but the suspense was definitely there.
As I finished The Midnight Man I also finished my #20booksofsummer reading challenge 😁
All done for another week and another month.
Have a wonderful week ahead,
All the very best
