Scotch 20 cm Titanium Scissors - White/Green
Scotch 20 cm Titanium Scissors - White/Green
Price: £10.13

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, 23 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are a great pair of scissors, useful both for cutting paper, card and other craft materials, and in the kitchen. They are comfortable when cutting for a long period of time and cut really smoothly, without sticking. Overall, these are amongst the best scissors I have used and would recommend them. This is the second pair I have and my first pair are still going strong several years later with regular use including going through the dishwasher.


Ambre Solaire Garnier Kids Anti-Sand Spray SPF50 200 ml
Ambre Solaire Garnier Kids Anti-Sand Spray SPF50 200 ml
Price: £11.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Anti-sand spray sun lotion, 16 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This sun lotion offers excellent protection (SPF 50, UVA, UVB) for children and the aerosol spray helps to ensure that it is applied evenly. The main selling point is that it is non-sticky/ greasy and so sand doesn't stick to the sun cream and cause itchiness. The spray also ensures that sand doesn't get into the lotion unlike traditional bottles. The main negative is that because it is an aerosol it applies more thinly and so needs regular reapplication. It is also harder to see how much is left in the bottle.


Don't You Cry
Don't You Cry
Price: £5.39

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars, 12 Jun. 2016
This review is from: Don't You Cry (Kindle Edition)
When Esther Vaughn disappears one night out of her bedroom window, her roommate Quinn Collins is determined to find out what happened to her. As Quinn uncovers more clues to her friends disappearance she begins to wonder about what other secrets Esther has been keeping and whether she herself is in danger. Meanwhile, in a small town by Lake Michigan, a young man named Alex Gallo is drawn in by a mysterious beauty. As the two stories begin to collide, this gripping psychological thriller keeps the reader guessing. Mary Kubica has created a fast paced and entertaining novel which is sure to appeal to those who enjoyed The Girl on the Train and the novels by C L Taylor.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publishers for the review copy.


Leaving Blythe River: A Novel
Leaving Blythe River: A Novel
by Catherine Ryan Hyde
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Leaving Blythe River, 31 May 2016
When 17-year old Ethan Underwood goes to live with his Dad in Blythe River he is understandably nervous: he is just getting over being mugged in Manhattan, his parents split up following his father's adultery and is no longer the hero he always was and the tiny mountain community is full of surprises including being home to Grizzly bears. After his dad disappears on a run and the rangers give up on their search, Ethan decides to form his own search party with a ragtag gaggle of neighbours.

Whilst the story takes some interesting twists and turns whilst navigating the difficult mountain range, it is the characters themselves and what they learn about themselves from each other that adds depth to the story. It is another great read from Catherine Ryan Hyde and will certainly appeal to her fans.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the review copy.


Time to Say Goodbye: a heartbreaking novel about a father's love for his daughter
Time to Say Goodbye: a heartbreaking novel about a father's love for his daughter
by S.D. Robertson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

4.0 out of 5 stars Time To Say Goodbye, 31 May 2016
In a similar vein to The Lovely Bones, If I Stay and Before I Fall, Time To Say Goodbye also has a deceased protagonist. When Will Curtis is killed whilst riding his bike, he is devastated about leaving his young daughter Ella. He promised he would never leave her as she has already lost her mother so when a spirit guide explains that he can stay on Earth, he thinks he has found the perfect afterlife. Will has a deadline and after which his decision will become permanent. Is staying with Ella the best choice for them both or will the lure of the bright lights of Heaven call him over?

S D Robertson has created an interesting and emotional story about the bond between a father and daughter and how death affects the whole family (Will's Mum, Dad & sister) and despite the difficult subject matter is a quick and easy read.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the review copy.


Garnier Ambre Solaire Kids Coloured Protection Spray SPF50 200ml
Garnier Ambre Solaire Kids Coloured Protection Spray SPF50 200ml
Price: £4.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent protection, 21 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This sun lotion offers excellent protection (SPF 50, UVA, UVB) for children and the blue spray helps to ensure that it is applied evenly. It is also water resistant and the shaped bottle helps keep it from slipping out of your grasp. The main negative is that it is quite greasy but it does offer good value for money at the current selling price (less than half RRP).


Hawaiian Tropic 180 ml SPF 30 Satin Protection Sun Lotion
Hawaiian Tropic 180 ml SPF 30 Satin Protection Sun Lotion
Price: £9.42

4.0 out of 5 stars Hawaiian Tropic oil-free sun lotion, 21 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This sun lotion offers the same protection (SPF 30, UVA, UVB, water resistant) as many other similar brands but is worth paying a little more for due to the scent and ease of application.

The fragrance is described as tropical and it reminds me or holidays and the beach whilst not being overpowering. The biggest positive for me is that it goes on smoothly like a moisturiser and leaves the skin feeling soft without being oily or greasy. The only downside is the price (at full RRP) and so I would recommend buying this product when on offer.


Playmobil 5309 Master Bedroom Doll House
Playmobil 5309 Master Bedroom Doll House
Price: £13.98

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Playmobil Bedroom set, 21 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Playmobil set comprises of 24 pieces which make up a master bedroom: bed with bedside tables and lamps, wardrobe, dressing table and chair, rug, and a woman with separate sarong, towel, book, brush, clock, sun cream and perfume.

Whilst some of the pieces are small, they are all chunky and well made so perfect for the age range intended (4-10). The best bit about this set is that the bedside lamps light up with the addition of 3xAAA batteries. The only negative is that this is best used alongside the dolls house and further furniture packs from Playmobil and so could end up quite expensive.


TOMY Mix and Match Motor Boat
TOMY Mix and Match Motor Boat
Price: £15.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Multi activity bath boat, 21 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Tomy bath toy is great for entertaining little ones at bath time as there are so many different activities. There is a water squirter on the front, basket with holes in to sprinkle 'rain', a water wheel and a driver concealing the wind up motor to propel the boat through the bath which also has a rudder for steering. Additionally the boat pieces can be removed or the two middle sections swapped around to form different boats. Overall it's a great toy and I would recommend it.


When I Was Invisible
When I Was Invisible
by Dorothy Koomson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £5.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Another strong offering from Dorothy Koomson, 20 May 2016
This review is from: When I Was Invisible (Hardcover)
Veronica Harper (Roni) & Veronika Harper (Nika) are best friends bound by a love of dance and a devastating secret which will change their lives forever. In 'When I Was Invisible,' we follow the lives of the two Veronica's from young girls into adulthood and see how one event defines their future paths.

Dorothy Koomson has written another captivating novel, with a gripping story dealing sensitively with a range of issues including abuse and homelessness. Whilst this isn't my favourite Koomson book, it stands up well alongside her other work.

Thank you to Lovereading for the review copy.
