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

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!

Morning folks. The #sun is shining bright today and I'll be getting things ship shape for an #easter visit from the #parrentsinlaw. This is one of the less blurry snaps I managed to get of a couple of stray #deer in #thenewforest. @sarahpibworth and I were just siting on the bank eating our lunch when they were scared into crossing the river. Stay tuned for a special Easter #blogpost tomorrow and have a great #saturday! #photography #photograph #animalphotos #woods #riverbank #green #trees #bambi #sjmliterature #holidaysindreamland sjmliterature.weebly.com @s.j.munday

I'm playing catch-up with this one, but Just started reading reading #thedreamsnatcher by #abielphinstone aka @moontrugger. I've been eyeing this up for a long while and the art work looks glorious. #childrensfiction #fantasy #adventure #romanygypsy #forest #magic #amulet #oldmagic #caravan #wildcat #startedreading #newbook #middlegradefiction

Good morning all! For those of you who don't know #mythology Γ nd #folklore play a big part in my #writing, so it's a #dreamcometrue to be able to visit places like this. The #photograph was taken a couple of years back at the palace of #knossos in #herklion #crete where the #legend of the #minotaur originates. The #minoan people worshiped bulls and it's easy to see how its walls must have seemed like a #labyrinth to outsiders, but the truth is that they were built to channel the wind and act as an #ancient form of #airconditioning. Have a good day folks! #greece #temple #palace #ruins #writer #author #poet #childrensfiction #photographer #photography #bulls @s.j.munday #sjmliterature #holidaysindreamland sjmliterature.weebly.com

Morning guys and girls! I've got a brief shift at my #writersdayjob this morning to pay the bills, then I'll be working on some #blogposts ( including a #seasonal #easter special heading your way soon! ) and #editing some #shortstories. Here is a photograph of some #newforestponies from last #summer, taken in #hollandswoodcampsite #brockenhurst #thenewforest. I love the#composition, #colours, and #textures in this one. Hope you all have a great day! ##writer #author #poet #childrensfiction #photographer #photography #photograph #animalphotos #pony #ponies #writeratwork #sjmliterature #holidaysindreamland sjmliterature.weebly.com @s.j.munday
