Currently Reading

Cozy mystery, romance and a bit of fantasy… my reading has been utterly delightful this week. 

The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling has been on my bookshelf for a couple years. In fact, I even started reading it some time ago but then got a bit distracted by other reading. Now, don’t think for a moment that’s because the book didn’t grip my attention. I think I just kind of want to save and savour books from the Harry Potter world. I’m into it now and loving it.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard, a wizarding classic, first came to Muggle readers’ attention in the book known as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Now, thanks to Hermione Granger’s new translation from the ancient runes, we present this stunning edition with an introduction, notes, and illustrations by J.K. Rowling, and extensive commentary by Albus Dumbledore.

Never before have Muggles been privy to these richly imaginative tales: “The Wizard and the Hopping Pot,” “The Fountain of Fair Fortune,” “The Warlock’s Hairy Heart,” “Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Cackling Stump,” and of course “The Tale of the Three Brothers.” But not only are they the equal of fairy tales we know and love, reading them gives new insight into the wizarding world

Recently Finished

A new to me author and the first in a new series, the Oxford Mysteries. Review soon to come!

When Natalie Payne accepts the Head of Ceremonies role at the University of Oxford, her first assignment is planning the spectacular autumn gala at St Margaret College. However, her plans are dashed when she finds their famed chef dead in the kitchen. 

If that discovery isn’t enough, the cat following her around is actually a four-hundred-year-old wyvern. He’s got news for her: Nat’s a prefect, with the magic of Oxford running in her veins. Nat’s got to solve the murder, find a new chef for the gala and get to the bottom of why Oxford’s magic is acting up. With the help of her wyvern, a band of Eternals and the savviest assistant who ever existed, Nat is sure to be a success. 

But can she do it before St Margaret loses its connection to the magic of Oxford?

Up Next

Another author whose books I save and savour. Jessica’s latest novel is sure to delight and I’m really looking forward to sinking my teeth (and heart) into this story.

As Samantha Wishaw watches the love of her life marry another woman, she’s ready to give up hope of finding her happy ever after.

But when a chance encounter leads Sam to find friendship in Thomas – a lonely, grumpy elderly widower living at derelict Hedgehog Hollow – her life is about to change forever.

Glad to have a distraction from family feuds and match-making, Sam vows to fulfil Thomas and his wife, Gwendoline’s, dreams of restoring Hedgehog Hollow to its former glory, and to open a hedgehog rescue centre.

Throwing herself into the task at hand, little does Sam realise that the keys to love and happiness may also be found at Hedgehog Hollow, when she least expects it…

Escape to Hedgehog Hollow this summer with top 10 bestseller Jessica Redland for the perfect uplifting, feel-good read.

These are the stories filling my days at the moment.

What about you? Have you read any of these? What are you enjoying today?

  1. I too have The Tales of Beedle the Bard on my shelf waiting to read but I never got around to reading the final two Harry Potter ones (which I also have) so I keep thinking I’ll finally find time to read those first.

    Excited to hear what you think of Finding Love at Hedgehog Hollow. Happy reading xx

  2. I have heard that the audiobook of Tales of the Beetle Bard is really good. I think I am going to listen to it, then share it with my grandson. Jessica Redland has become a must read author for me lately, so I am looking forward to her new book. Enjoy them all Laurie.

    1. I missed the audiobook on Beedle. Lol. I can imagine how great it is. I have a hard copy of the book so that may be why 😂
      Definitely going to read a couple of the stories to my boys. And Jessica… i think I’m starting Hedgehog Hollow today!
