Happy reading in 2016, Laura! :smile2: I went through your TBR pile, and was wondering: will you be reading the Harry Potter books for the very first time? If so, you're in for such a great treat!!

Welcome back Laura! So glad to have you here again.

 

Congrats on the addition to your family. I'm glad to see you've already been busily making him into a reader (I'm doing the same to my niece :D).

Unfortunately not reading the Harry Potter books for the first time, I've read them a few times but not for a few years so I'm hoping that the magic is back in them for me again - but you can't ever loose the magic of Harry Potter if that makes sense! The OH brought me a new set for Christmas as my originals are a bit battered so I'm really looking forward to reading them again hehe!

Thank you :) I love the amount of childrens/baby books you can get now and I keep buying them for him. He has one with a digger on at the minute which is his most favourite!

Oh, the Harry Potters are always a delight and will stand the trial of time. :yes: I think they are one (I mean seven) of those books that you can just read time and a time again, and will always love them :smile2: And at least you are reading them as new editions for the first time :lol:

I am so Harry Potter obsessed again at the minute I just can't wait to read them again!

 

  

I have The Italian Girl and The Seven Sisters (first of 7!  :o ) by Lucinda Riley on my TBR shelves, have you read any of her other books?

 

I haven't yet but I've just looked on Amazon of those books you mentioned and they sound good too so I might just have to add those to my wish list too!
