I've been a bit lapse latley with my social media. That's because there are so many things going on atm! Here you can see me and my fiance packing ready to move into a new flat next week. It's got a balcony and a designated study/writing/library room!

My highest rating so far this year for @Kiran_MH's award winning #thegirlofinkandstars. A truley original fast-paced adventure full of mythology, emotions, and action. A story about hope, family, and chasing dreams. #bookreview #awardwinner #fantasy #novel #bookbloger #writer #author #poet #childrensfiction #sjmliterature #holidaysindreamland sjmliterature.weebly.com @s.j.munday

Here is my review for #lisathompson's novel #thegoldfishboy. As someone who has experience dealing with OCD in thier late teens, and subsequently doctors and therapists, parts of this book felt hauntingly familiar... especially Mathew's 'magic thinking.' @lisathompsonwrites treats her subject matter with compasion and creative flare. I'm taking this book to heart and storing it amungst some of the best that I have made a connection with. Thank you Lisa for taking me on this journey of rediscovery. #bookreview #childrensbooks #writersofinstagram #writer #middlegradefiction #childrensfictionbooks #s.j.munday @s.j.munday #sjmliterature #holidaysindreamland sjmliterature.weebly.com

Just an average #writers #saturdaynight in whilst the other half @sarahpibworth is out with work friends. #essaywriting, #editing, #scicilian lemonade, #saltedcaramel #icecream, #applepie, and afterwards a nostalgic viewing of the #powerrangersturbomovie. (My childhood in a nutshell) Have a great #weekend! @s.j.munday #sjmliterature #holidaysindreamland sjmliterature.weebly.com

Morning all, I hope you have all had a good #bankholiday #Easter weekend. Here is a photograph of me last #april on #stcuthbertsisland in #lindesfarne curtesy of my Georgeous #fiance @sarahpibworth. We had to run across to get this snap and got a bit soggy on the way back as the tide was coming in. Look forward to catching up with you all later! #island #portrait #photograph #northumberland #holyisland #writer #author #poet #childrensfiction #sjmliterature #holidaysindreamland sjmliterature.weebly.com @s.j.munday

Its been a fruitful day! #bookhaul #bookshop #finds #books #fantasy #corneliafunke @mirrorworlder @cornelia_funke_fan #childrensbooks

Morning folks! I had a lovely #easter outing yesterday with @sarahpibworth and the inlaws at #mottisfont in #hampshire. Here are a few sample snaps I took with my mobile camera #nofilter. There were lots of dreamy floor-to-ceiling #bookcases and #writingdesks to gawp over. I also snapped up a secondhand book on all things paranormal for research purposes. I hope the #easterbunny was good to you all! #statelyhome #historicalhouse #nationaltrust #house #gardens #secondhandbokshop #s.j.munday #photography #writer #sunday #nofilterneeded @s.j.munday #sjmliterature #holidaysindreamland sjmliterature.weebly.com

My Easter haul. Thank you to the beautiful @sarahpibworth for my cute bunny jar from #marksandspencer! #easter #eastereggs #cadbury #treats #chocolate #bunnies

Happy Easter morning! To celebrate I have posted a #seasonal #article on my #blog exploring the rich #history and #mythology behind our Easter #traditions. How many of us know where the first #eastereggs came from, or how #hotcrossbuns are connected to #ancientegypt? Well wonder no more, and let me know what new things you have discovered! Happy egg eating!
