Ten Quotes from probably the Greatest Detective in the World

Ten Quotes from probably the Greatest Detective in the World

Greetings you guys! We haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday post in 3 weeks. First I had my tail in a knot and then Mommy were on holidays. But we are back to play along with Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl for this week’s edition. What a fun freebie prompt we have today – Book Quote Freebie! We’ve done a TTT on our favorite quotes from books (that can be updated I guess), but we didn’t feel like it. Nope, we would rather go with a few memorable quotes from probably the greatest detective in the world. Ever. I guess we should have added what books these quotes come from… Let’s make it a guessing game! We have tried to add photos from the movies to a few of these quotes, see how many you can match! Are you a fan of the greatest detective in the world? Have […]

The Sunday Post #72

The Sunday Post #72

Greetings you guys! Oh how I’ve missed you!! I bet you’ve missed me terribly as well. I haven’t spoken to you guys in 3 whole weeks. Two weeks ago, my Mommy had to do The Sunday Post as I had my tail in a knot and refused to talk to her or Daddy for days. I honestly thought it would work and they would just give in and come begging for attention. But do you know what they did??? They packed and went on holiday. Can you believe that! I have to be honest, I got the fright of my life and thought they might never come back. Luckily they did and I will never, ever behave like the spoiled brat I am, again. They said they had a wonderful time in Mauritius. They brought us all some lovely presents and they enjoyed the island life tremendously. My Mommy says […]

Weekend Book Friends #31

Weekend Book Friends #31

Hi there you guys! Mareli here, coming from OR Tambo International airport. In case you didn’t know, that is in Johannesburg, South Africa. My home country. I have a quick few minutes to write a weekend post and have a cup of coffee before we depart for Mauritius. Whoo hoo! Of course my Kindle is fully loaded and I even sneaked an extra book in. I won’t share that one with you today, as it’s in Afrikaans and I don’t have time to do a translation as well… So I’ll just share my current kindle/review read with you today. I think it’s quite possible that I might not be the only one reading this one at the moment. We are quickly going to say hi to @ Reading is my Super Power for First Line Friday and to Gilion @ Rose City Reader for Book Beginnings.  Every Friday you can link up and share […]
