1 year of blogging

Hi everyone!

This post is about 3 weeks late. I meant to write it on the 21st of May, my birthday. I didn't (as you can probably tell).

I have now had this little blog for a year! The Sherwood Storyteller is named after my love of Robin Hood and writing. Thank you everyone who's commented!

I can't believe it's June already! May was a busy month, practically all the birthdays in our family are all in the same month.

I purchased an awesome series of books and read them in two days. A series called Jackaby, which is a mix of humour, mystery and is awesome. I'd recommend it to anyone around 14+ (the murders are rather gory).

I also went to see a screening of The Shakespeare Tribute from Stratford-upon-Avon, were lots of famous British actors led by David Tennant acted out scenes from plays.

Have a good month!

  1. Happy be-lated birthday, to you and your blog! I've enjoyed reading what you had to say, and I look forward to many more years!

    I read Jackaby a while back. The main characters didn't seem all that original, but the story premise certainly was! I only read the first though. What were the others like?

    And that Shakespeare Tribute sounds amazing!

    Going back to the topic of blogging, though- I've recently started my own. I'm sorry that this sounds like a shameless advertisement, but I recall you asking a while back.
    Here's the link, if you like.

    1. Thank you!
      I think Jackaby is meant to be a kind of Sherlock spin-off. The second book was a lot more fast paced than the second, and I think the characters are stronger.

      It doesn't sound one bit like an advertisement, I'll have to check it out!

  2. Exactly, I kept picturing Jackaby as Sherlock. I wonder if my library has the second book. Perhaps I should check it out.

    Whew. Thanks!

      Yes! I thought it was out when I started reading, only to discover to my horror that it wasn't!
      You to :)
