Hello and welcome! Pull up a cushion and make yourself comfortable.
Tea in the Treetops blog is a collaboration by several experienced book bloggers – we’ve decided to combine our efforts into one mega-blog.
As well as book discussion, we aim to share our love of reading by sharing reviews for all sorts of books – from children’s and young adult titles to adult literature, and from a wide range of genres including Fantasy, Science Fiction, Paranormal, Romance, Chick-Lit and Contemporary Literature. We hope our recommendations help you to find books that you enjoy.
You may have noticed that we’ve already brought over some reviews from our previous blogs, mostly to give the new blog a bit of a lived-in feeling. Please feel free to visit our Reviews page to check out some of our previous reviews!
The Tea in the Treetops podcast will also move in here and Philippa and Angelya are hoping to get into a more regular release schedule soon. You can find out more about the podcast on its very own page.
