• Books I Read in February…

    admin March 10, 2018

    Ah, February.  I can’t say that I’ve ever really felt the impact of a month being shorter than the others before, apart from this February when I only managed to read four books.  Six is usually my average and I feel like I might have…

  • Top 5 Books For 6-8 Years ǀ Raising Readers

    admin February 28, 2018

    I know in my last Raising Readers post I talked about the top 5 picture books for children aged 5-9 years so it might seem strange that I have altered the ages here to talk about books for children aged 6-8 years.  The simple answer…

  • Books I Read In January…

    admin February 4, 2018

    Four books in January might not seem a lot but when you’ve got plenty of other things going on, it’s actually a fairly decent amount!  I’d say six is an average number for me so I was just behind that, although I am also making…

  • Top 5 Picture Books for 3-8 Years ǀ Raising Readers

    admin January 31, 2018

    I love picture books.  They are classic and timeless and can appeal to children (and adults) of all ages.  Even now, though Meg and Eli are pushing the age bracket I have suggested above, they still find enjoyment in sitting down with myself or James…

  • Raising A Reader ǀ Tips For Getting Your Children To Read

    Jess McGlynn January 17, 2018

    I’m going to open this blog post by acknowledging that reading for pleasure isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.  We don’t all always want to reach for the written word when we need to escape from the craziness of every day life and that is perfectly…

  • Books I Want To Read In 2018

    Jess McGlynn January 10, 2018

    Towards the end of last year I decided that I wasn’t going to attempt monthly TBR (to be read) lists any more as it’s something I am just not good at sticking to.  I am, hands down, 100% a mood reader, preferring to approach my…

    Jess McGlynn January 3, 2018

    It’s no secret that I am an avid reader. It forms a major part of my every day existence and has, therefore, naturally spilled over into every aspect of my life including my blog and Youtube channel. Connecting with people online has been fantastic, especially…

  • June Reads ǀ Books & Reading

    Jess McGlynn July 5, 2017

    With our week long holiday in Italy, I had actually expected to read more than I did in the month of June.  Then again, the book I took away with me was almost 900 pages long so broken up into ‘normal’ book size that’s probably…
