* I have received this book for review from the publisher but this in no way affects my review *
Title: Birdy Flynn Authors: Helen Donohoe Source: From Publisher Publisher: Rock The Boat Rating: 4/5 stars

(Goodreads|Amazon)











Book Review Summary:
It is the summer and a group of children are playing down by a stream when they do a terrible thing. Something that Birdy tries unsuccessfully to avert. While the other children in the gang find it easy to forget what they have done, Birdy is trapped in the moment and feels bound to do something to make amends.

Now We Rise Blog Tour: A Children of Blood and Bone Inspired Post

So today I am posting my piece for the Now We Rise Blog Tour. This blog tour is celebrating the release of Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi based around your Manji Clan. 

For this I decided to write a poem based on that theme. So I hope you like it...












Now We Rise

Now We Rise, From the Ashes, From the Ground, Ready to fight.
With our friends, With our family, With all our might, With everything that we have.
To protect what we have, To challenge everything,  To reshape the world that we live in,  To end all that we disagree with it. 
This land is ours, This is our family, This is our history, This is our ground, This is ours.
Ours to defence, Ours to protect.
Ours.
And we won't let it go easily.
Now We Rise.

See you soon,

Books That Made Me: World Book Day Inspired Post

Books are the way to new worlds. 
They allow us to experience anything 
And everything that we want to do in the world. 
They are the way to worlds that we didn't even know existed 
But we don't know what to do without. 
Allow us to open doors in this world
That change us, make us learn, 
Allow us to know that anything is possible 
If only we believe.
Books are escapism when we need them the most. 
Books can change our lives, for better. 
Books make us better people. 
They made us, well us. 
Here are the books that made me...



Book One: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

This book opened the door to a new world that I didn't know existent. It opened the door to YA and I haven't looked back...







Book Two: Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison 

This book opened the door to a world I already knew existent but not in fiction. It taught me that life can be messy and embarrassing and that that's OK and the female friendships rule!





Book Three: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins…
