I've always been a bit of a bookworm and I still am! I'm pleased to say both my little people seem to be the same too!
I think I was about 7 or 8 when I first read my Dad's copy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, I remember spending hours studying the maps printed into the book and I really loved the characters. It's a book I've returned to at various points in my life along with the Lord of the Rings.
I can't wait to see the new film The Hobbit out in December, I know the book will always hold a special part in my heart.
I was really happy to be sent a review copy - its been a while since I read the book last - at least ten years and I no longer had my own copy.
I've really enjoyed reading parts aloud to my little boy, he loves the opening parts describing the home of the peaceful bilbo baggins and just like me, loves to study the maps! He's also into dragons but I'm mindful what I read about Smaug to a 3 year old!
I've really enjoyed rekindling my love for this story, filled to the brim with adventure, mythical beasts and magic!
