Welcome to October’s Books Round-up, who is starting to get excited about Halloween and is it too soon to mention the ‘c’ word? I’ve finally moved house and we’re getting settled in our new place. This month I wrote about 2 books to help your child move house, if you are soon to be in the same shoes as me. 

Books for Halloween and Autumn

With Halloween around the corner, perhaps you are on the looking for a suitably spooky book? Spitting Yarn has written about Quentin Blake’s book Monsters about a boy with a passion for a boy who likes to draw monsters.  The Queen of Collage has got two great posts for Halloween and Autumn with Girls’ Spooky Books and Fall Back in Love with Books this Autumn. If you are after adult book to read this autumn All About Mummy has written a review of Before I Let You in by Jenny Blackhurst and it looks like a great read. On my blog last year, I also shared 10 Fab Books for Halloween with some of my favourite horror books to sink your teeth into. 

Great Reads for Children

There have been some super posts about children’s books this month too. Life, Love and Dirty Dishes has written a fab post with Brilliant Books for 7-Year-Olds if you have a child this age, it might give you some Christmas list ideas. Did you ever read those books as a child where you could choose the outcome? I always used to really like them. The Gingerbread has reviewed a book just like that called You Choose in Space with lots of adventures to be discovered in space. 

The Mama Fairy has shared 10 books her family are really loving right now, there are some new books to me on this list which I am going to definitely check out for my children. Boo Roo and Tigger Too has shared a lovely children’s poem to read before bedtime called Bath, Bed, Book with Goodnight Moon

… And Parents Too

Finally, if you’re looking for a book to read, but never seem to have the time, Woman in Progress has shared Books to Read When You’re Short on Time, to help us, tired parents, to fit in a little reading time this autumn when we can too.  And, if you’re a single parent Welsh Mum of One has written a book review for you all about The SuperMum Myth and getting over the feeling that you’re just not good enough.  

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.
