    So I know I haven't been posting regularly. Hit a bit of slump, but I've had a brainstorm and now back with a renewed passion and seeking people who might be interested in hopping on and being a part of something. 

    Looking forward to sharing with you: The Big Kids Book Club Podcast.

    Big Kids Book Club Episode 7 - June TBR Special!

    Big Kids Book Club Episode 7 - June TBR Special!

    I’m back with a special TBR episode where I look at the books I plan to read in the month of June.
    It’s a brand new concept for the show and one that I know is popular on Booktube, so I hope you like my nonsensical ramblings and bookish comedy.

    Fun, silliness and a whole heap of YA goodness to lift you from the Cornovirus blues.
