b.o.o.k.s.t.a.g.r.a.m . I've always thought people who say they 'just don't enjoy reading' are a bit mad if I'm honest! What's not to love? Anyone else think the same? . One of the things I'm really enjoying at the moment, is seeing the girls discover their love of reading. There's just something so satisfying about your children asking you to read them a story! . We've had another fairly chilled day at Moore HQ today, which has been lovely. The girls have actually been playing together in harmony and I've managed to get some writing done! . Happy Thursday, bookstagrammers! I hope you've all had excellent days and have managed to lose yourself in your books, even if just for a little bit! I'm very much looking forward to picking up my kindle when the girls go to bed later!
b.o.o.k.s.t.a.g.r.a.m . Anyone else seriously craving summer now?! I know we shouldn't wish our lives away, but I just can't help it at the moment...I am ready to sit in the garden with a G&T and my kindle. Only a few months to go now...! . On that note, the weather is awful at the moment and as it's vacation week the kids are going crazy being trapped inside! Luckily we've got some friends coming over later so that should perk them up! . I finished Amy Schumer’s book earlier as part of my non-fiction binge. I found some of the swearing / how she describes the sexually explicit stuff to be way over the top but man she has been through A LOT. And her thoughts and work on gun crime were surprising. Good for her for being outspoken (when a lot of people think she shouldn’t be) on such a devastating and important issue. . Happy Hump Day, bookstagrammers! I hope you've all had excellent days and have managed to fit in plenty of reading! I'm very excited to pick my book up again after bed time later.
b.o.o.k.s.t.a.g.r.a.m . I've said it before and I'll say it again, there is a slim possibility that I get a little bit too involved with the characters I'm reading about. Anyone else do this too? It's so hard not to when you spend so much time with them! . We've spent the day running errands so far. It’s vacation week and the girls are getting very good at winding each other up, which is always fun... I'm hoping they'll both nap later on and I can get some writing done. . Mr Moore keeps googling Game Of Thrones theories and sending them to me. It's making me want to plan a new 7 book epic fantasy series... and then I remember that will take the best part of a decade to bring about and I put a rain check on it! Maybe when I’ve finished the romance I’m writing... . Happy Tuesday, bookstagrammers! I hope you've all had excellent days so far and have managed to fit in lots of chapters!
b.o.o.k.s.t.a.g.r.a.m . Can we talk about Game Of Thrones for just a minute? How many of you are watching the last season at the mo? And how many of you have also read the books? As someone who is loving Season 8 so far, and read the books, I have to say I'm not that mad about the TV show over taking the books. I know a lot of people are though, let me know your thoughts in the comments... . I have to confess, I've been pretty envious of my UK friends having a day off today! Mr Moore has been at work and the girls have been on some kind of sugar come down all day! I did, however manage to nab 30 minutes this afternoon to get some writing done which was exciting! . Happy Monday, bookstagrammers! I hope you've all had lovely days (whether you've been at work or not!) and have managed to fit in lots of reading. I can't wait to pick up my kindle later!
b.o.o.k.s.t.a.g.r.a.m . There's no denying it, C.S.Lewis was a wise old chap, wasn't he? In my humble opinion there is nothing so lovely as a good book and a cup of tea! Being a parent means that I don't get to sit and read for as long as I would like to these days, but even those stolen moments are glorious! . Happy Easter, everybody! We're having a quiet day at home today. We've been for a bike ride with the kids who are now stuffing themselves with chocolate and I'm cooking slow cooked pork for supper. I'm hoping the excitement of the Easter eggs will tire the girls out and I can steal some reading time this afternoon! . In other exciting news, I had a break from Grey's Anatomy last night and we watched the docu-drama Brexit...we absolutely loved it. Definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet! . Happy Sunday, bookstagrammers! I hope you're all having excellent Easters filled with loads of good food and chocolate! In yet more exciting news, anyone else SUPER hyped for the next episode of Game Of Thrones this evening...?!
b.o.o.k.s.t.a.g.r.a.m . Every now and again I go through a phase of wanting to read 'proper' books. Traditional paper back books, rather than the Kindle versions or the audiobooks. However, I always come back to my Kindle, it's just so convenient, and you can fit your whole TBR into your bag! . We've had a really fun day so far, we all headed off to a huge Easter Egg Hunt in @marketsquarestitches 's neighbourhood and the girls loved it! We're heading off to @yorkriverlanding for lunch now, which I'm pretty excited about! I'm hoping the girls will be exhausted when we get home so I get some writing done. . Happy Saturday, bookstagrammers! I hope you're all having excellent days so far - I hear there's a heat wave in the UK so fingers crossed you're all reading in the garden! I can't wait to snuggle on the sofa with my book later!
B.o.o.k.s.t.a.g.r.a.m . People who say they don't have time to read, clearly don't have their priorities right in my opinion! My little sister is forever telling me that she doesn't have the time to finish a book, yet she somehow manages to get through a re-watch of every episode of Game Of Thrones... . It's been a lovely Friday at Moore HQ, we went to our favourite activity of the week this morning - story time at the library. One girl is now napping and the other is happily playing so I'm going to make the most of the downtime and get some writing done. It's so satisfying when you can sneak a chapter or two in! . Happy Friday, bookstagrammers! It's our first Easter in the states and pretty odd to not have a bank holiday today I have to admit! I hope you're all having lovely days and managing to fit in plenty of reading!
b.o.o.k.s.t.a.g.r.a.m . As an author, the first book you write will always hold a very special place on your bookshelf I think. I can't believe how long it's been since I published Legacy, and hearing what you all think is still as amazing as it was then! Don't forget if you haven't read it yet, it's available on Amazon and @wattpad (link in bio)! . I finished Shonda Rhymes' book last night and loved it right up until the last word. In other exciting news, I have been asked to talk at a special May edition of Writing, Publishing, Marketing, which has been renamed Writing, Publishing, Mothering. It was the brainchild of @elizabethdeveer who will be alongside me on the panel with @keenoandernest.books It’s going to be @wsca_radio in front of a live audience on Tuesday May 14th from 6-8. Come along if you're in the area, everyone’s welcome, especially parents! . Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you're all having excellent weeks so far and managing to find plenty of time for reading! I'm currently trying to decide what book to pick up next...
b.o.o.k.s.t.a.g.r.a.m . It's really no secret that my favourite accompaniment to a good book is a cup of tea...if you've been around for a while, you'll definitely know how much I love this combo! If you ask me, there's not much that a book and a cuppa can't solve! Anyone else agree? . I took the youngest swimming this morning and as a result, she's now exhausted and I'm battling with an overly emotional two year old who is simultaneously screaming on the floor and trying to order me around. I had planned to get some writing done this afternoon, but I'm not sure that's looking likely now... . In other news, I am totally in love with Shonda Rhymes' book. She talks so much sense and I just think she’s completely brilliant. Have any of you guys read it? If not, I 100% recommend! . Happy Hump Day, bookstagrammers! I think it's officially almost the weekend now and that excites me greatly! I hope you've all managed to fit in plenty of reading so far this week!
