Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle by Betty MacDonald
After reading so much intense fantasy, I wanted to read something light and very different. And then for some reason I started thinking about this book.
This book is one of many that my mom used to read to my brother and me when we were little. I’m not sure when I last read it.
Basically this book is a collection of stories about ‘cures’ that Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle comes up with such as “Won’t-Pick-up toys cure” and Fighter-Quarreller cure”. Continue reading “(47) Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle // Bookish Blurb”
Tom’s Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce
This was another book I read because it was recommended at the back of the The Little Paris Bookshop. Basically this is an old children’s book originally published in 1958. The premise of this book is that Tom is sent to stay with his aunt and uncle because his brother is sick. While there, Tom discovers another world he can visit at midnight.

Sorry for the very long break from Scotland pictures. Did you miss them? I really like doing these posts but they take a lot more time and energy than my book posts. Have you enjoyed this week of posts? I’ve really enjoyed doing it. Anyway, onward to the post.
Ok, we’re almost done with this day trip. If you haven’t seen the other posts be sure to check them out: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4. In this stop we explored Rosslyn Chapel. Continue reading “Borders Trip pt.5 // Scotland”
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
After reading March I got a hankering to read Little Women again and since I was able to get it for free on my kindle, I did. The book tells the story of the four March daughters (Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy) and all the adventures they have and lessons they learn. Continue reading “(23) Little Women // Bookish Blurb”
The Tin Woodman of Oz by L Frank Baum
This is actually the 12th book in the original Oz series. Most people don’t seem to be aware that it is a series at all but it is. I’m slowly working my way through all the books (I read the first 11 last year) which shouldn’t be very hard since they are all quite short and easy to read.
This book concerns the Tin Woodman and is essentially a quest to find the girl he loved before he was made into tin. Along the way we meet many new characters and they go on funny little adventures. As in most of the oz books, the majority of the book is them wandering around meeting odd people/creatures and getting in and out of danger. Continue reading “(20) The Tin Woodman of Oz // Bookish Blurb”
So on this day trip, in the morning after my evening in Edinburgh we met and then went to our first stop which was the Traqair house. I forget the historical significance of this house but it was old and we saw lots of old stuff in it. Continue reading “Borders day trip pt.2 // Scotland”
Make sure to check out my Previous Posts (Part 1, Part 2) about this weekend.
So the next day after our mountainous hike was a fun day to do these various activities. I had little interest in most of the activities so instead I went on a walk with one of the girls to the nearby town.
