Papery Peep! A New Link up!

My lovely penpal and fellow blogger Jocelyn from The Reading Residence is on a mission to get us all writing letters, cards and reading more books. I love reading and have never been a fan of these electronic readers (although my app has come in handy on long train journeys!) I will always prefer having a paper back in my hands. I also have a number of pen pals whom I love writing to and since I started letter writing again I love buying gorgeous stationery. Sadly, my budget doesn't really allow room for lots of lovely stationery so when I see a bargain I grab it with both hands! Here's a photo of my new paper set, case and blank cards (because I'm getting back to making my own cards again!)


Now onto reading. I've read a few books over the last few weeks. Firstly there was The New Arrival by Sarah Beeson.

My New Arrival Selfie!
The New Arrival is a novel about Sarah's career and time as a trainee nurse in the 1970s. I have loved this book and have been inspired by Sarah's belief in helping others and standing up for the rights of mothers and their families. I have the second book on pre order and I can't wait to read about Sarah's journey in a new roll.

The second book I wanted to share was The Third Reich. I'm a big fan of history books (World War II, Titanic and Tudor history in particular) This book is great because it's based on the politics behind The Nazi Party which I knew next to nothing about. I read a lot about the actual war and the concentration camps but I've never read anything like this and I enjoyed it a lot.


My current book:

Mary Berry, Recipe For Life
