Never Let Me Go By Kazuo Ishiguro

A kindle paperwhite e reader device laid on a background of various paste coloured books. The book on the kindle is Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro and has a close up image of a girl's face looking to the right.


Where do I start with this one. I'm a bit stumped. I read the glowing reviews and I loved the dystopian concept of a segment of human society created purely to donate to others but this book just felt so far away from the dystopian fiction I usually love. I feel like Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro is going to divide people, you're going to love it or you're not and I'm definitely in the 'don't love it' section of society.

After last weekend's holiday to Tattershall Lakes we've had a quiet week at school and work followed by a play date Saturday. Sunday was a little more exciting as we took a trip to Daddy's football team ground to say goodbye to one of their most established players. 

What To Expect When Visiting Tattershall Lakes

Tattershall Lakes is a holiday park situated in the Lincolnshire countryside. The site is quite large and the accommodation is nestled within woodland or dotted around lakes. There are various types of accommodation on offer at Tattershall Lakes, from standard static caravans to luxury woodland lodges.  There are many ways to book a break at Tattershall Lakes, Hoseasons and Away Resorts being the lead booking sites but there are many private owners on the site so you can find some great deals by shopping around, I've even managed to find some on Booking.comWe stayed in an 8 berth caravan with hot tub that we managed to get as a last minute deal from a Facebook selling site.

Living Arrows | To Be Beside The Seaside

We missed last week's Living Arrows post as we're all just a little frazzled. The relaxing of Covid rules has been wonderful but not without it's challenges. As someone with Autism, all change is disruptive, even if it's good change. I think I hit burn out last week. I couldn't focus on anything, I was a shouty mum and a bit of a rubbish partner. I just shut down for a while and entered survival mode.

Reading has always been a big part of our family life. I read so much as a child and my daughter appears to be following in my footsteps. Each month we aim to share the Books We've Been Reading and I thought it might be nice to have a nosey through the books that others have enjoyed. As a reader I'm always on the hunt for new reads and as a parent I always want to know what books to keep an eye out for in the library so whether it's children's books or adult's books I'd love for you to take part in this link up and help us all to grow our 'to be read' piles!

Anyone who knows me knows that I love to read. It's something I've always enjoyed and I think it's so important that we grow and nurture a love of reading for future generations. We are really missing our trips to the library but thankfully we have a rather hefty children's book collection and I've been making the most of our libraries online ebook loan service to keep my kindle well stocked with reading material. Here's what we've been reading this month....
