So if you have read any of my reviews for books aimed at children, you know that I take children’s literature very seriously. I have a few reasons for this, but the main one is I grew up with dyslexia and hated reading. Even beyond kids with learning disabilities, it can be hard to help a child learn a love of reading. Let’s be honest, the required reading in school is not always the most entertaining. So that is where a book club like Bookroo can come in handy!

Bookroo offers book clubs for children ages 0 to 12! That means you can find entertaining stories to help grow your child’s love of reading from the time they are in the cradle till you’re crying because they got their first crush in school!

If you write a lot for a living, or just for fun, you probably find that you spend a lot of time editing your content. Which can be time-consuming and difficult at times. The English language is a tricky one, even for a native speaker. We do not remember all the rules we were taught back in school. And sometimes you never even think of the more complicated ideas. Like, the difference between a comma and an Oxford comma. Thankfully in today’s modern internet world, we have applications like Grammarly, which help you quickly and easily fix your writing.

History Hit

First of all, this isn’t an ad, it is a genuine review of a website I adore.

Are you a history nerd? I am, and I wear it with pride. I can sit back and inhale any topic of it for any extended period. If I could, I would spend all day with my head in a history book, or various websites. Sadly, this is impossible, so I have to consolidate the locations and time I spend doing so. I used to turn to YouTube for my fill of historical information, though they may not always be accurate, until I found History Hit.

For a low subscription fee, I pay $4.99 USD as month, you can get access to hundreds of history videos, podcasts and articles. History Hit has content on everything from ancient history, to medieval, 20th century and a lot more. And trust me, they do not limit the content to the famous well-known people either. This is content for people truly interested in history. I am particularly interested in the middle ages content they provide and never find myself disappointed.

I strongly suggest this site, if you are interested in history at all!
