Seaside! I live in the countryside and love it but I was born by the sea and miss it every single day.

Not yet but hoping to soon. My hubby isn’t happy as I’m now working in a school again and so we are now back to going in school holidays.

Agatha Christie is still my favourite

I will read almost anything but my preferred genres to review are psychological thrillers, crime procedural novels or women's fiction. My kindle is my life but I also have a substantial bookshelf in my cosy reading room where I can go to escape the stresses of family life with plenty of tea and chocolate. I am a member of netgalley and bookbridg. I review on Amazon, where I'm a Top 500 reviewer, and Goodreads. You can always find me over on Twitter @jocatrobertson for any review requests.

  1. Haha, loved your answers! I want to taste your lasagna! You gave me my new word of the day, I did not know what a jacket potato was. I’m not a sporty person either, except for yoga. xx

    1. My lasagne is amazing! Everyone asks for it for birthday dinners. I used to do yoga but it gave me terrible migraine headaches so had to stop. Jacket potatoes are lovely, I like them with prawns on top or cottage cheese. xx

  2. I well up just thinking about the end of Toy Story 3. In fact, I started getting upset in the bit when they’re sliding towards the incinerator and all hold hands… I can’t believe your grandchildren laugh at you! They’ll learn! 😉

    Thank you for nominating me 🙂 xx

  3. I took my granddaughter to see Toy Story 3 at the cinema when it came out and she was the one sobbing broken-heartedly – and went on crying on the train home…

    1. I get more emotional the older I get! And yes he is probably the only famous person to come from our small village apart from some footballer I’ve never heard of lol (I would have paid more attention if it was David Beckham I think!!!) x
