It’s New Year’s Eve and time for wrapping up 2019.
On a personal level, 2019 has been a little crazy in my work life. After 14 years in one education setting, in September I transferred to another setting within the same Trust. After 10 weeks I was back …
I thoroughly enjoyed implementing my Special Educational Needs processes and met some lovely children, parents and Trust work colleagues during that time. One thing surprised me about going back, is how much it felt like home!
It’s been a crazy busy year on the blog and another year of Laura, Alice-Jane and myself working together to bring you reviews for the latest books. Between us we’ve written 195,210 words in 276 posts. A lot of words. 🙂
You have found us in several ways but the top three ways have been through search engines, Pinterest and Twitter. Top spot for where you live is the UK, followed by US and surprisingly, the third highest country is Canada.
I’m wrapping up 2019 with our top 20 most viewed posts.

- Book Review : The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton
I use Goodreads to keep a track of what I read and fortunately, at the end of each year, users are sent a yearly round-up. There are two December books missing this year – The Christmas Party by Karen Swan and One Christmas Star by Mandy Baggot. Both these stories are outstanding reads.
To round off 2019 I’m running a giveaway to say thank you for continuing to support Jera’s Jamboree. The giveaway is running through Rafflecopter (click here to enter). One winner can choose a book from any that we’ve read this year or books that we’ve showcased through Q&As or spotlights. I’ll be ordering from the Book Depository so make sure they deliver to your destination. I can only email digital copies for UK residents. You’ll find links to the months below.
Wishes for 2020 to hold all you wish for yourselves. x
