#BookADayUK / Picture book
As I’m still new to children’s publishing, I don’t have a favourite picture book yet, although I’m loving reading them. I’ve picked one that was given to me by a colleague as a leaving present: William and the Missing Masterpiece.

A pretty spine too.
#BookADayUK / Favourite Agatha Christie mystery
I’ve only read three Agatha Christie books: And Then There Were None, Death on the Nile & Murder on the Orient Express, but I think And Then There Were None will be my favourite for a long time because I cannot imagine a more brilliant mystery! It may not be a book I’ll treasure forever but after reading it, I wanted to enthusiastically recommend it to everyone I knew. It has those moments that make you sit up and gasp, and wonder how you didn’t notice them before.
oh, the places you’ll go (by kameron elisabeth)
I loved it! I enjoyed it even more the second time because I wasn’t rushing to finish it. I’ve seen the adaptation in the cinema twice too and I’m very sad that we have to wait until a November until it’s released on DVD in the UK. I wrote a review back in 2012 here.
