Christmas Wishes by Sue Moorcroft #bookreview | paperback publication day | @SueMoorcroft @AvonBooksUK

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Sue Moorcroft’s writing so it’ll come as no surprise to hear that I absolutely loved this one.

The little shops and streets of Stockholm sounded wonderful and I am deeply envious of … More Christmas Wishes by Sue Moorcroft #bookreview | paperback publication day | @SueMoorcroft @AvonBooksUK

Christmas with the Teashop Girls by Elaine Everest #bookreview @ElaineEverest @panmacmillan @ed_pr #TeashopGirlsChristmas

Plant Magic by Dr. Gregory J Kenicer @thebotanics @lovebooksgroup #lovebookstours

Plant Magic is a gorgeous book and the photo above doesn’t do it justice, with so many details picked out in shiny foil. It’s also a real treasure trove of the history of the use of plants in magic and the beliefs people held (and sometimes still do) about the magical properties of plants. Gregory … More Plant Magic by Dr. Gregory J Kenicer @thebotanics @lovebooksgroup #lovebookstours
