Nollaig Shona Duit (Happy Christmas in Irish)

With only a week until the magical Christmas day, my tree is decorated with shiny baubles and twinkling lights and my party dress is ready to be worn to the parties. Volunteering at a charity carol concert has also got me into the Christmas mood.

Happy Halloween!


Halloween is this week and being Irish, Oiche Samhain or Halloween is a big celebration as well as a time of year I really like.

About Me



I’m Anita and I love reading books.

Welcome to my bookbag. I have called it this as my bag always has a book to read in it. I read a range of books including historical fiction, modern classics and some romances. I really enjoy being whisked away to another era or place, imagining the details of the scene, feeling the mood and atmosphere and following the tale of the heroine or hero or those bad characters that help make a story too. Books are a great way to relax and escape.

I have set up this blog to share my book reviews with you and hopefully inspire you to pick up a great book that you may never have heard of. This blog is also a place for discussing the books.

Let me know what you are reading too.
