New addiction – Ultimate Dot to Dot

I thought I share with you my latest addiction…. The Ultimate Dot to Dot by Dr Gareth Moore. Published by Michael O’Mara Books – I think it is AMAZING!

This is so cool, it is not just a dot to dot from 1 to 999 but I like to compare it with paint or colour by number. Each section of numbers has a colour which represents the colour they recommend you use for that p20161219_101816art of the picture. Plus you have full dots and open dots as I call them. This means that you can start anywhere from an open dot as that is how you are able to get the differences in colour and the shapes and gaps.

 

I love how they come along and how pretty they are – there is a downside to this. The numbers can run up into the 1700’s and it gets a bit difficult to see which dot belongs to which number. You have to look very carefully where the line would be or could be going and what the image would be then you will figure it out.

I hope more of these will come out – I managed to snap this up via Amazon Black Friday Deals and so happy I did this!20161219_101950

 

Have you done any dot to dots and do you like them? Can you recommend more books like this? Just let me know!

My weekly #Sundaychallenge on Twitter

Well as you might remember from my previous post last week I do a weekly #Sundaychallenge on Twitter organised by @thischickreads.

Unfortunately I failed to finish it this week! I was supposed to read a book by Christine Feehan, but sometimes books don’t fit in my mood – and let me tell you, this week my mood sucked a bit. I had lost my reading mojo – Couldn’t get into books and there is one Christmas book I am now reading for over a week! So yesterday I took drastic measures and I started to read Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell – as I have read something of Rainbow Rowell before I thought I could finish this in time. But me and the hubs had a day away yesterday and had to do needing shopping today, so I only managed to get almost halfway through the book – but this week I will make up for it!

Taddaaaa here is the new challenge!

Hey all!

I thought I would make a lovely blog post about my participation in the #Sundaychallenge that is being hosted by @ThisChickReads on Twitter, check out her blog too, This Chick Reads!
I will try to make this a weekly post to promote this challenge and to let you know what I will be reading.

I have started a couple of weeks ago and every week there is a different challenge in reading a book, so far I have participated in a Comedy book, Christmas Book and a Book part of a Series. I have enjoyed every single one of them and I really wanted to share this with you.
Participating is easy, on Saturday or Sunday @ThisChickReads will let you know what the challenge is and then all you have to do is tweet her back and say you’re in! You can also already tell her what book you’ll be reading – the challenge starts on Sunday 1pm. The only time frame is that you finish it before the next challenge begins.
It will be a good way to either get you back into reading or, like I do, try to combine this challenge with my open Netgalley books. But it also might get you to pick up that certain book you’ve been wanting to read for ages!
Oh and there is a little price at the end of the challenge as well, if you’ve participated and finished the challenge you are in a draw to win prices! So that might be another little motivation to start and enjoy this #Sundaychallenge.

This week’s challenge will be Read a book by an author you’ve read before (any length, any format) Oh and check out the prize: Two participants will win ‘The New Mrs D’ by Heather Hill.
