My Review
Twenty Four Days to Christmas is a fun, festive children's book full of holiday cheer. Poppy, a very excited little girl, can't wait for Santa to come. Unfortunately, she has to wait twenty-four whole days! *gasp* But her mom has a plan to help her get through the long waiting game. Each day, they'll find something new and exciting and holiday-centric to do. There's caroling and snowman building, face painting and decorating the tree. Plus lots more. And, in the end, Poppy realizes that good things come to those who can wait.
I found it an enjoyable, sweet book that is the perfect holiday read for kids and adults alike. The illustrations are cute, and I really enjoyed the creativity in having each day be a new thing to try. I think it teaches kids that even though sometimes waiting can be hard, finding fun things to distract yourself with can be a good thing.
I'd recommend it. 
4 stars!

Veronica’s Bird by Veronica Bird

Veronica's Bird: Thirty-five years inside as a female prison officer by [Bird, Veronica, Newman, Richard]
Veronica Bird was one of nine children living in a tiny house in Barnsley with a brutal coal miner for a father. Life was a despairing time in the 1950s, as Veronica sought desperately to keep away from his cruelty. Astonishingly, to her and her mother, she won a scholarship to Ackworth Boarding School where she began to shine above her class-mates. A champion in all sports, Veronica at last found some happiness until her brother-in-law came into her life. It was as if she had stepped from the frying pan into the re: he took over control of her life removing her from the school she adored, two terms before she was due to take her GCEs, so he could put her to work as a cheap option on his market stall. Abused for many years by these two men, Veronica eventually ran away and applied to the Prison Service, knowing it was the only safe place she could trust. This is the astonishing, and true story of Veronica Bird who rose to become a Governor of Armley prison. Given a ‘basket case’ in another prison, contrary to all expectations, she turned it around within a year, to become an example for others to match. During her life inside, her ‘bird’, she met many Home Secretaries, was honoured by the Queen and was asked to help improve conditions in Russian Prisons. A deeply poignant story of eventual triumph against a staggeringly high series of setbacks, her story is filled with humour and compassion for those inside.

Following a near miscarriage, she is confined to her bed to await the birth of their first child; during this time, she sets down her own story.

The Cubit Quest by Trevor Leck

Twelve-year-old Charlie Watkins could have inherited his dad’s massive intellect. The Cubit Quest by [Leck, Trevor]

He got his massive feet instead.

Perhaps if Charlie had that intellect he might have been able to figure out why so many men in suits were suddenly following him or where his dad hid the Cubit - a mythical object that men have sworn to protect and even more have died trying to possess - before his so-called accident.

If starting yet another new school wasn’t bad enough, Charlie meets Mr Leopold, a disfigured, mind-reading lunatic and discovers that he alone must find the Cubit if he is to save his dad. The Brotherhood, however, have other ideas. Led by the ruthless Draganovic, they will stop at nothing to get their hands on it. With the help of Mr Leopold and fellow new boy Elvis, Charlie sets out on The Cubit Quest.

Hunting for the Cubit, playing football, lessons with the dreaded Funeral Face and unsuccessfully avoiding school bully Grimshaw by day, Charlie finds his nights no less complicated. Stalked in his dreams, he’s soon immersed in a world of power struggles, battling dragons and duels to the death. With the Brotherhood hot on his heels and as the bullets begin to y, there are no guarantees that Charlie, or anyone else, will make it to the end in one piece.

Summary:Discoucia: A Victorianish Fairytale by [Lovelock, Nicholas]
Revolution, romance and technological wonders are all in a day's work for the decorated hero of Alavonia, Sir Arthur Pageon.
An acclaimed explorer and inventor, Sir Arthur Pageon takes his unofficial role as defender of the realm of Alavonia very seriously. A fantastical world, Alavonia is home to the Discoucian Monarchy, as well as monstrous creatures and secretive academies for the highly gifted.
Upon returning from his most recent exploits aboard on his personal flying galleon The Nostradamus, Pageon is treated to a hero's welcome and celebratory procession through the streets of Alavonia's capital, Evermore. Little does Pageon know he's being followed by a mysterious group known as the Purple Guard, whose devious leader is his estranged sister, Queen Lily Pageon of Harrha Island. Fiercely intelligent, Lily specialises in dastardly technological inventions with the aim of bringing down the Discoucian Monarchy so that she may reign as its dictator. However, the heir to the throne is one Princess Josephine Olandine, whose youth and royal position masks her role in the Discoucian Secret Service.
Joining forces, Princess Josephine and Sir Arthur's adventures will take them across the whole of Alavonia - from the fog-bound shores of Karga, to the secret underground shanty town beneath the frozen prison of Icester, south to the verdant city of Proceur and from there to the affluent Starfall Academy - in their quest to foil Lily's revolutionary plans.

Who Can Care for Me Now?
By Elizabeth Orr

Who Can  Care For Me Now? by [Orr, Elizabeth]
Elizabeth Orr is the first to admit that she had no knowledge of the realities of caring for someone desperately ill in the UK. That was until she found her brother, Norman, collapsed on the bathroom floor. Overnight, Elizabeth was catapulted into the medical and care worlds as she battled to support her brother. The learning curve was vertical, as Elizabeth struggled with the litany of paperwork, red tape, finance issues, and working with myriad NHS departments and resources required to keep her brother alive. Who Can Care For Me Now? charts Elizabeth and Norman’s emotional journey through this complex care system — in hospital, at a neurological nursing home, and receiving care at home — from his initial collapse to his untimely death, just twenty months later. Elizabeth hopes to raise awareness, not just of the daily sacrifices made by carers everywhere, but also of the devastating affects of brain disease — and to stimulate much-needed conversation about how we provide care, and how we must improve it.
