Book reviews

I love reading and sharing what I’ve read with others. Here are links to my latest book reviews.

To raise awareness of Refugee Week 2019, I created a week-long book blog about adult and kids books on the topic of refugees and migration.

In September 2018, my children and I embarked on our own World Kid Lit Challenge, reading and reviewing 30 books in 30 days. For a full reading list, please click on the link above.
