      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

Laura Loves Reads 2017

Recommended Posts

Welcome to my 2017 book log :)

 

I'll try to be better at updating this year :) FOr the first time in 4 years my books are all in the same place (double stacked in two bookshelves!) and I'm quite shocked at how many I've actually got unread so I'm going to try and read a lot more this year. Hopefully with all the books staring at me everyday I'll get reading more!

I've been interested in Bill Bryson, but never have read anything by him; I hear his audio books are great. The Kite Runner is harsh- have you read And the Mountains Echoed?

 

Have fun with the Twilight books and I wish you a happy New Year!

I've read a couple of Bill Brysons before and they are really good :) I haven't read And the Mountains Echoed I'll have to look into it :) I'm looking forward to the remaining Twilight books though :)

1)The Christmasaurus - Tom Fletcher

 

51YKIcYyeUL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

 

Synopsis - Forget everything you thought you knew about the North Pole, and set off on a Christmas Eve adventure with boy named William Trundle, an elf named Snozzletrump, Santa Claus (yes! The real Santa Claus!), a nasty piece of work called the Hunter, and a most unusual dinosaur . . .

 

My Thoughts - I was looking foward to this book for most of last year and I was so excited when I got it for Christmas. It tells the story of William Trundle - a young boy who is a bit different to others - he lives with his Dad after an accident killed his mum and also left him wheelchair bound. Hes also obsessed with dinosaurs and his dad is with Christmas. This was such a magical story that really captured the magic of Christmas. It was so in depth when it came to explaining all about Santa and his elves and also about dinosaurs. Its definitaly aimed at children probably around 7+ and I'm definitaly going to read it to my son once he gets old enough to understand it.

 

I've also loved the author Tom since my teens - hes the lead singer of McFly and also married to Giovanna Fletcher and I follow both on youtube/instagram etc. This is such a well written book to by a 'celebrity' sometimes I find celebrity books a bit difficult to get into but this one was fantastic! I hope he writes more!

 

Rating - 5/5
