What We’re Reading This Month | April 2020

Books are amazing, aren’t they? They can transport you to a different world and a different time. They can give you a much needed distraction from life and help you to forget about things for a little while.

I think a distraction is something that we all need right now, so with that in mind, I thought I would share with you what we’re reading this month.

Where’s Wally – Martin Handford

I talked about Where’s Wally in my What We Love post for March, and I feel that they deserve another mention!

Where’s Wally are definitely our favourite books to read at the moment, especially in the evening. I’ve had so much fun showing Cupar what to do, and he’ll happily sit and look through them for ages.

I love how interactive they are, with not only Wally to find, but the rest of his team as well.

There is also a checklist in the back for extra bits and pieces to find, different items that belong to the team scattered about, and an extra puzzle to solve that will usually involve trying to find an item or person on every page.

These books can keep the kids (and you!) entertained for hours.

In the Castle – Anna Milbourne

Another one of Cupar’s favourites at the moment is a book called In the Castle by Anna Milbourne. I picked it up from the library because I thought it looked interesting, and Cupar loves it! We’ve read it so many times that I can now read it to him without looking at the pages!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – J.K. Rowling

I’m reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at the moment. It’s taking me forever, but I’m slowly getting through the Harry Potter books.

I usually listen to the audio versions when I’m on my way to work and back, or when I go to bed, and it’s so much easier than trying to find the time to sit down and read an actual book!

I love the Harry Potter books, as I’m sure a lot of people do, and I never get tired of reading them.

IT – Stephen King

Even though it scares me, I’m reading IT at the moment. I saw the films first (which terrified me when I was younger) and then started the book a little while ago. I wasn’t expecting the book to be too bad, but it’s actually a lot scarier than I thought it would be!

There’s so much more in the book than you ever get from the films, and you really get to know the characters a lot more. I’d definitely recommend it if you’re an IT fan.

It’s a very long book, which is perfect for when you’re at home with nothing else to do!

Men At Arms – Terry Pratchett

Aeron is listening to the audiobook version of Men At Arms by Terry Pratchett at the moment, which is part of the Discworld series. He listened to all of the Discworld audiobooks about a year ago and is now working his way through them again.

I’ve only read a few of them, but I love how easy they are to read. They’re not too long, so they can easily be read over a weekend, and they’re all weirdly wonderful in their own way!

  1. I love working through the Harry Potter books. It’s been a while but I have a huge TBR pile that I never get round to!
