Welcome to July’s Books Round-up, this month I have been looking into book subscriptions. As a book lover, I think it is such a wonderful idea to have new bookish goodies arriving in the post for you every month, particularly for young children. On my blog, my son and I have been reviewing a children’s educational magazine subscription to Amazing magazine. I wasn’t sure how it would go down, but my son has really enjoyed it. 

Over 40 and Mum to one has been reviewing a book subscription Bookabees. Which is a bespoke book subscription service from babies right through to eleven year olds. Jaymee from The Mum Diaires has been reviewing an alternative book subscription service from Wilf Books, which looks like a really lovely and personal service. If you have a baby, you may want to read And Another Ten Things’ thoughts of the subscription service Baby Book Club. Mummy to Dex has reviewed Happy Book Club which is a themed monthly service that also includes a fun activity with it. 

If you’re more of a digital person, then maybe Reading Eggs is for you and your family, which has been reviewed by The Reading Residence. Which is an online educational games and reading subscription. For parents of older children, have a look at Susan K Mann’s review of Owlcrate a book subscription aimed at children aged 8-12. Finally on the book subscription front is this post from Pickle and Poppet who review Once Upon a Time book Subscription service a personal book selection for children under 12.  

I also have had a look at some non-fiction book review this month. Kids of the Wild has written about The Little Book of Whittling which shows you how to carve 19 different things from wood. For those of you that would like some parenting advice, Five Little Stars has reviewed a selection of parenting books, with her thoughts on the most popular titles. If you have a trip to London planned in the near future, have a read of Home and Horizon’s review of Insider London: Get the Inside Knowledge on the Capital. Which includes a guide to the city’s essentials and lots of different and cool places to go.  

Ever felt you just want to change your life? Dark Tea has written a post on a really fascinating book The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod which is based around the concept if you don’t change your life now, you never will. If you want to change your ethos around food, JuggleMum has reviewed an equally fascinating book Cooking with Love and talks about the Yoga of Food which is about nutrition and cooking in a way that suits your body.

I hope you enjoyed the round-up. If you would like to be included in next month’s round-up I would love to hear from you, you can tweet me @laurasummers or drop me an email.
