Black Friday Sale From Books2Door

No comments
Disclosure - This is a collaborative post. Books2Door referral scheme gives us both £10 off our orders by buying through this link 

For me November is the start of the Christmas countdown. Once Halloween and Bonfire Night are over I can start to focus on Christmas and getting myself organised for the big day. One of my favourite things to do is shop the Black Friday sales. Years ago it would just be on the day that you could grab a bargain however thanks to the internet, Black Friday sales start to pop up at the beginning of November with lots of bargains and offers perfect for Christmas. I have been browsing the Books2Door Black Friday sale and they have lots of books for all ages all reduced and also they are offering an extra 10% off their top picks with a minimum spend of £30. 

I love buying books and they do make the perfect Christmas present and here are some of our favourite offers from the Books2Door Black Friday sale.

colleen hoover books


Colleen Hoover is a very popular author at the moment after the huge success of her books 'It Ends With Us' and then follow up sequel 'It Starts With Us'. However Colleen Hoover has a wide range of books that can be read as a collection or stand alone books.

The Maybe Someday series is features Maybe Someday, Maybe Not and Maybe Now and perfect for readers like me to like to curl up with a 'will they, won't they' book.

the dark tower boxset by Stephen King


Now for John he only really likes to read books from one author, Stephen King. He has tried so many books over the years but he doesn't get past the first few chapters before giving up. Luckily Stephen King has a huge range of books and his Dark Tower series box set features 8 books which will definitely keep him busy. 

Books in the set are 
1. The Gunslinger
2. The Drawing of the Three
3. The Waste Lands
4. Wizard and Glass
5. Wolves of the Calla
6. Song of Susannah
7. The Dark Tower
8. The Wind through the Keyhole

These books are different to Stephen Kings usual writing style however after reading lots of reviews I know they will be a hit.

Little J also enjoys reading, not as much as I would like him to however he will read when encouraged. A favourite of big J's when he was the same age as little J is now was The Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

When browsing the Black Friday sales section I got a shock when I found a Diary of a Wimpy Kid with 15 books inside. I had no idea there were that many now.

Halloween Books For Adults From Books2Door

No comments
Disclosure - This is a collaborative post. Books2Door referral scheme gives us both £5 off our orders by buying through this link 

The spooky season for me starts as soon as September has finished. October is the month that I like to transform our house with pumpkins decorations, orange and brown furnishing and a smell of pumpkin spice in the air. It's also one of my favourite seasons to snuggle up with a book and I am currently reading some new Halloween books for adults from Books2Door. If like me you enjoy a scary story then these will be a perfect choice.

twisted tales book


Disney's Twisted Tales

You may already know I am a huge Disney fan and whilst I love the heroes and princesses I am also drawn to the villains in Disney movies. Who doesn't love a good baddie? The idea behind the Twisted Tales series is that the Villains are the main characters and it's their storyline that is the main attraction. They are a great read and perfect for Disney lovers like me. 

twisted tales books


Disney Twisted Tales Vol. 1

1. A Whole New World
2. Once Upon a Dream
3. As Old as Time

There are 3 stories to enjoy with the Disney Twisted Tales Vol.1 collection. The stories are based around Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and The Beast. 

twisted tales book


Disney Twisted Tales Vol. 2

1. Reflection
2. Mirror, Mirror
3. Part of Your World

If Vol.1 isn't enough you can also enjoy Vol.2 of Disney's Twisted Tales following the stories of Mulan, Snow White and The Little Mermaid. 

The collection is perfect for both young adults and older. They are spooky rather than scary with lots of Disney magic in there too.

You can buy Vol. 1 and 2 combined which is cheaper than buying both separately.

Stephen King - Movies Collection

Stephen King has been a well-known figure in horror and science fiction writing for decades. His first release was Carrie, originally published in 1974. That was quickly followed by Salem’s Lot in 1975 and The Shining in 1977. There have been many adaptations of King’s novels over the years. This collection contains 4 of the most notable titles that were adapted onto the big screen, The Shining, Pet Sematary, IT and Doctor Sleep, Stephen King - The Movies Collection.

Stephen King has always been John's favourite author and although he has read most of his books many times he will always go back to his favourites.

Back To School With Books2Door

No comments
Disclosure - This is a collaborative post. Books2Door referral scheme gives us both £5 off our orders by buying through this link - Last Updated August '23 

I’ve said it before but September really is my favourite month. September reminds me that my favourite time of year is on the way. Autumn is just around the corner, we will soon be visiting Alton Towers for Oktoberfest, then before we know it we will be pumpkin picking, setting off fireworks and then Christmas will soon be here. Working in an Education setting also means that September is the beginning of a new school year for me. I really enjoy meeting the new children, getting to know them and preparing for our school year together.

A selection of books on a book shelf

However I haven’t always liked September, when I was a child September meant back to school with the uncertainty of a new teacher, new classroom and possibly even new friends. So September can be a nervous and anxious time for some and whilst teachers and carers will do all they can to settle children into their new routine, as a parent we can also help them before September arrives.

Whether our little ones are starting nursery, reception, going into a new school year in primary school, starting secondary school, sixth form, college or even university we can help them and prepare them for their new adventure ahead.

If our little ones are nervous or anxious about what lies ahead we can talk to them but also reading stories can be a huge help. Books2Door have a lovely range of books and resources that can help children prepare for the new school year. These are a few of my favourites.

Lucy and Tom at School


Lucy and Tom at School by Shirley Hughes
Lucy has her school things ready. She has a new grey skirt, a pair of brown shoes, a pencil case and a satchel. Tom wishes that he had a satchel too. Full of warmth and good humour, the happy simplicity of childhood is captured in this richly illustrated, classic picture book about two young children’s first experience of school.

starting school book


Starting School by Allan Ahlberg
Following a number of children's first experiences, this picture book takes children right from their very first day to the end of the school year. This reassuring read will support even the most nervous school-starter, exploring each emotion, from fear to excitement, with care. The perfect read to start a conversation about any pre-school nerves, packed with playful illustrations and easy to understand explanations. This is a book that you'll want to read again and again - far beyond the last day of the school year.

No Worries : Your Guide To Starting Secondary Schoo


No Worries : Your Guide To Starting Secondary School by Jenny Alexander
No Worries is the ultimate secondary school survival guide, with tips, quizzes and jokes to help children prepare. What if I've got the wrong stuff? What if I don't fit in? What if the older kids are horrible to me? Starting secondary school can be an exciting time - it's a great adventure but sometimes, before you go, you can get a touch of the 'what ifs'. You may be feeling anxious or stressed about leaving primary school. No Worries is full of information about going up from primary to secondary school and covers all of the big worries and anxieties. With practical hints and tips, jokes and quizzes for finding your way around, making new friends, social media and staying on top of homework, this fully-revised edition of Going Up! is the essential no-worries guide to starting secondary school.

These are just a few of my personal favourites however you can browse a whole range of books by searching Back to School

Keeping The Kids Busy This Summer With Books2Door

No comments
Disclosure - This is a collaborative post. Books2Door referral scheme gives us both £5 off our orders by buying through this link

We are midway through the Summer holidays and I am happy to say I haven't heard the dreaded phrase 'I'm Bored' yet from little J. We have been busy travelling and we have had a few days out too. Also we've enjoyed days in the garden and chilled afternoons. I like to keep busy when it's raining outside otherwise little J will reach for the screen. Having said that he is easily distracted and a few of his favourite things at the moment are colouring and reading so I ordered some supplies from Books2Door to keep him entertained.
