Book Monster Hiatus …

Hello hello!

Well, thought I’d better post something to let you know (does anyone out there really care?) that the Book Monster blog will be going on a short hiatus in the next few days.

I have bought (crikey) and am moving into a flat, hooray! Exciting times, but this also means I’m currently swimming in electric, gas, council tax, TV licence and broadband hell!! The broadband is the killer. I won’t have it for a while, which means blogging will be a bit tricky unless I resort to snail mailing out reviews to you all, but, truth be told, that’s not quite as practical, dynamic and wide spreading as Twitter!

SO, we will be gone a short while, but we will be back! To all those wonderful and patient authors who are waiting on book reviews (you all know who you are), I will, of course, as book monsters do, be frantically reading and writing ready to get reviews up mid – end of May! So please watch this space.

Here are just a few of the wonderful books I’m currently reading and thoroughly enjoying. Reviews will be coming very soon!


Dimple, Deckle, Dogeared and I still love you all very much and hope you don’t forget us! Please!

I will still haunt the halls of Twitter via the modern joys of my phone! Assuming it doesn’t get packed up and lost along with ALL the things!! So see you there!

Those pesky Book Monsters will catch you on the other side…


This is NOT a bedtime Story


Hello long time no blog! It’s been a very busy few weeks, and likely to get busier, so firstly, apologies to all those wonderful writers waiting on me to read and review books. I’m on it, I promise.

In the meantime, my latest picture book review. This is NOT a Bedtime Story written by Will Mabbitt, illustrated by Fred Blunt and published by Puffin Books.
