Book Review 📚

So, I’ve always wanted to be part of a Book club and this week that dream came true.

A lovely local cafe near me runs a book club and I found out about it after having a chat with the cafe owner. I was so excited when she mentioned that they run one as its a lovely little cafe and easy for me to get to. My twin sister joined with me.

It was SO awesome!! I can’t wait for the next meeting and to start our new book.


I’ve decided that since we will discuss these books in more detail, these will be the books that I do a little review of. This means I have one a month to write about/recommend (hopefully) to you guys.

So, here is the first book that I read for the book club… February 2022!

and their son Aurek from Poland.
