Happy World Book Day 2017!

Happy World Book Day fellow book lovers!

This is one of my favourite days of the year. We have a beautiful sunny day here in South Wales for a change and it was wonderful taking my children to school this morning and seeing the different costumes in all shapes, sizes and colours! My favourite from 2016 had to be our Deputy Headteacher who transformed into Miss Trunchbull and looked amazing! Matilda was one of my all-time favourite Roald Dahl books.

My eldest two have gone to Hogwarts; Hermione and Quidditch Harry strolled in this morning alongside Gangsta Granny, Where's Wally, Merida from Brave and, of course, no book day would be complete without a Gruffalo or two!

Harry and Hermione
My youngest refused to dress up, but was more than happy to take The Gingerbread Man along to nursery and proudly proclaim it as her favourite!

I am spending World Book Day with tea and the fantastic Elizabeth Haynes and her fourth novel Under A Silent Moon. Elizabeth has recently become one of my favourite thriller writers and I am hoping to do a Q&A or guest post with her on the blog as soon as I have finished the next few books!

All in all, a pretty good week here in Rachael's world; Pancake Day on Tuesday, St David's Day yesterday and World Book Day today, not forgetting the fantastic books we are all reading too!
