Read



The Diamond Thief by Sharon Gosling
Children's, 9 years +,
(Remy's trapeze acts aren't the only things to take your breath away in this plot twist filled read.  Check out my review for more...) 
9/10




Farm Babies by Liz and Kate Pope
Children's, Board book
(An inventive way of getting readers involved in learning about farm animals with jigsaw pieces!) 
10/10



Mummy and Baby Farm
Children's, Board book
(A cute read about farm animal mothers with their children)
9/10




Stop That Egg! by Helen Poole
Children's, Picture book
(A hilarious tale with a sp-egg-tacular end [That pun was waiting to happen!]!)
10/10




Always and Forever by Debi Gliori and Alan Durant
Children's, Picture book
(A compassionate read about all aspects of death - I cried!)
10/10




Far Rockaway by Charlie Fletcher
Young Adult
(The incredibly awesome parts were sadly too few and too infrequent for me...) 
5/10




This Child Of Mine by Sinead Moriarty
Fiction
(This is one emotion filled read...in a good way!)
9.9/10






Watched



Rainbow Brite
Anime, English
9/10
(Oddly I don't remember this series from the 1980s at all, which has me wondering if I ever watched it or just wanted to watch it...) 




H20 Just Add Water:  Season 3
Drama, English
10/10
(Loving how Rikki is drifting away from the no business sense Zane...) 




Amnesia
Anime, Japanese version
10/10
(Waiting for episodes for this intriguing drama is torture! It is simulcast soon after the episode is shown in Japan, and with a heroine who has no name and relives her days over and over it's one that makes you think...)




Winx Club:  Season 3
REWATCH! - French version
10/10
(This is the season which made me love rather than tolerate Stella...)




Shugo Chara!
REWATCH! - Anime, Japanese version
10/10
(I needed a tissue as Nadeshko has left! She will be back in another season...) 




Heidi
Anime, French version
10/10
(I think being ill while watching the 1st episode led to me thinking it was good, but not brilliant. I fell in love with Heidi's purity and enthusiasm in episode 2...)
