Those of you who follow me on twitter might have noticed I’m been posting a lot of links recently. Sunday Surfing is my new feature (inspired by Chrisbookarama‘s Friday Bookish Buzz, which is one of my favourite features) where I share my favourite links from during the week, about books and blogging.

Plus a little about what’s happened on the blog this week. Lets get started.

I missed Sunday Surfing last week so here are two weeks worth of links

Around the web

Children’s classic books retold for adults. I like the Brown Bear one
