I Failed My 19 Books For 2019 Challenge!!

I failed!! The challenge I set myself to read 19 books for 2019 was unsuccessful. I only managed 4! 

But I'm all about honesty here at Mummy Snowy Owl and lets be honest it was a ridiculous challenge!

19 Books For 2019 - The Life Of Rylan by Rylan Clark-Neal

Can you believe it! I’ve read another book and this one I read in a few days. Maybe it was the piece and quiet and lack of tech on our holiday or maybe it was simply because it was such a good read.

Book 4 of my 19 books for 2019, was Rylan Clark-Neal’s autobiography, The Life of Rylan.

19 Books For 2019 - This Is Going To Hurt By Adam Kay

Reading 19 books for 2019 is not the easiest task I've ever set myself but we're getting there! I'm now three books in, having just finished This Is Going To Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor by Adam Kay.

19 Books For 2019 - Part-Time Working Mummy, A Patchwork Life By Rachaele Hambleton

Book two of my 19 books for 2019 has been read and it's a good one! Part-Time Working Mummy, A Patchwork Life By Rachaele Hambleton, tells the story behind the success of her blog and social media channels.

The book sat at the side of a cup of tea

Rachaele is open from the start as she details her childhood and eventful teenage years. She shares her experiences of a violent, often volatile relationship with the father of her eldest daughters and the subsequent relationship breakdowns that follow. Rachaele's story is an eyeopening insight into the life and recovery of those suffering domestic abuse.

19 Books For 2019 - Mumboss by Vicki Psarias

At the beginning of the year I made a promise to myself that over 2019 I would read 19 books. To be honest it hasn't exactly got off to the best start!

I've read one! But one is a start, right? 

Being unwell recently, along with a few nights away in the caravan, have forced me to put down my phone, sit down and enjoy a little read.

Our Favourite Baby & Toddler Books

We love a good book and since JJ was a tiny tot he's loved being read to. Whether it be at home or nursery, out and about or at Granny's, he will often have a book with him. We even have a selection of his favourite books in our caravan for when we're away!

Like many kids though, JJ would get obssessed with a book and we would read it over and over for a week. This lead me to create our Book of the Week posts, where I shared our current obsession and there's some very random choices.

19 Books For 2019!

I love books and when I was younger I was a keen reader but as I've got older I've found that I barely read. Distracted by the TV or busy scrolling social media I rarely pick up a book, but do you know what I buy a lot of or ask for every birthday or Christmas?

My Favourite Spooky TV Shows For Halloween

I love a bit of spooky viewing and as I've recently shared my favourite spooky movies I thought it was time to tell you about my favourite TV shows too!

My Favourite Spooky Movies For Halloween

Sponsored Post

The kids are back at school, the weather is cooling and we start to look towards autumn. For me, autumn is one of my favourite seasons, with the other being winter, because, well Christmas!

I love autumn because not only does it bring my birthday and Halloween, it also means its socially acceptable to be inside, snuggled under a blanket, eating yummy treats and watching the TV!

Whether you're the type of person that streams their viewing on a tablet, sticks to Freeview and a standard TV or pays for a subscription service and watches on something fancy, maybe a 4K HDR TV by Panasonic or the like, there's plenty to watch on the run up to Halloween.

Our Favourite Book - The Three Little Superpigs!

I love books and have created a little book worm in the shape of my 3 year old little boy. Our love of books was the inspiration behind the book of the week feature that has run on and off for over a year.

As I change things up a little with my blog I'm now going to be sharing our favourite book on a monthly basis and it will also have an accompanying vlog over on my YouTube channel!  

So, let's gets things started! Our current favourite book is.......The Three Little Superpigs!

Movie of the week - What is it?

Regular readers will know all about my weekly movie posts where I share our current favourite and most watched movies. 

Some of them are very new movies but they are mostly old and random choices! Because of this I get odd messages on social media asking 'why the random movies?' and 'why are these so out of date?'. 

So, I thought I'd do a little post about what caused the start of movie of the week and why it's so random!

Well, its so random, because lets be honest, children are random!

Movie of the week!

This week's movie of the week is another festive one! It features the North Pole and a well known man in red.

I hadn't seen this movie until a couple of years ago when I was pregnant with our now 3 year old. Suffering with nausea, I lay on the sofa feeling very sorry for myself trying to get in the festive mood and I've watched it every Christmas since!

This week's movie of the week is The Santa Clause.

Book of the week!

This week's book of the week is one many of you will know. Although prior to having our little boy I hadn't come across it and I certainly didn't know until I read it that it had a festive feel to it!

This week's book of the week is Stick Man.

It's one of my favourites and is the first film I watch when trying to get into the Christmas spirit.

Book of the week!

The festive feeling continues this week with another Christmas related book!

Santa is one of the familiar Christmas figures so he is obviously going to feature in a lot of festive books, and this week's book of the week is no exception, as he's the star of it!

This week's book of the week is That'ts Not My Santa!
