What I’ve Read Recently

It’s been a while since I last featured any books on here, and seeing as I’ve just completed my Goodreads 2016 reading challenge, I thought I’d share some of the books I’ve enjoyed recently. You’re going to see quite a trend when it comes to my reading tastes it is very much based on the young adult fiction section of Waterstones, IF I WAS YOUR GIRL   This wasn’t a book I’d ever really heard of before, however, I was lucky enough to win a copy via Maximumpop via one of their many book giveaways they host.

American Afternoon Tea at the Karbon Grill Sunderland.

Last week I was invited along to the Hilton Garden Inn in Sunderland, situated at the Hilton Garden Inn. The hotels very own Karbon Grill restaurant has recently launched an American style Afternoon Tea. So I hopped on the metro after work and headed on over to the Stadium of Light to try it out. You’re probably wondering how an American style Afternoon Tea differs from a classic Afternoon Tea and it’s as simple as instead of cucumber sandwiches and fruit scones its filled with American themed sweets and treats. Filled with mini sliders, calzones, spicy buffalo wings and cheesy…
