Slowing down for the chaotic Summer Term Madness!

Yep, it's that time of year again.  I can't believe it was almost a year ago when I wrote a similar post!

I'll be taking a break over half-term (although Talk of the Town will be still be posting for you to link your book related posts).

There will definitely be plenty of this:












I have lots of catch up to watch (I haven't seen the last series of Call the Midwife yet or seen an episode of OUAT for AGES).



Posts will slow down from now.  As well as all the transition, organising and summer fun (!) at school my eldest son graduates from Uni mid July.  An exciting countdown to the end of the academic year.

Talk of the Town linky : Linking bloggers and authors

Welcome to the Talk of the Town linky which I co host with Heidi from Cosmochicklitan.


If you haven't joined in with us before:


What is Talk of the Town?

A place for bloggers and authors to link up their bookish posts.


What post can you link up?

It does have to be book related but doesn't have to be a review - it can be anything you would like to share with others. It could be a Q&A, guest post, book news, book event, blogging tips, giveaway, top 5 books you've read, your weekly/monthly roundup or even something you've made from instructions within the pages of a book! As long as it is book related, go for it. The post you choose can be something you're really proud of, has a message that you think others will benefit from or a book you think deserves to be noticed. Your post doesn't have to be recent either. It can be from your archives. And you DON'T have to join in every week.

Authors, you blog too! and if you would like to join in you're very welcome. I would request that you don't use the linky as only promotion though. Links to your books that you have in your posts are fine. I'm thinking here of the fabulous posts I read on writing tips or your inspiration etc and I know some of you join in round robins where you have a question to answer.


There is no cost for you to link up with #TalkoftheTown.


Don't know how a linky works? Follow my walkthrough - it's easier than you think!

The link is open now until Tuesday evening.

Please feel free to add the badge to the post you're sharing. Alternatively, please link back to Talk of the Town linky on your post.

If you would like us to RT your post tweet the link to @shazjera or @cosmochicklitan or add #TalkoftheTown.

Don't forget to leave your comments on the posts so that we can create a supportive community.

Thank you for linking up with us last week.  We enjoy reading the bookish posts from bloggers and authors alike.

This week I'm linking debut The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper.  Unusual in that the main character Arthur is 69 and widowed, I think you'll find the story inspirational.

Finally, it's half-term.  Time for lay-ins, maybe a pj day but definitely socialising and reading :)  Have a great week whatever your plans.
