100 Subscriber Special

Celebrating 100 subscribers with a ‘making of’ plus funny outtakes
Featuring reviewers/creative directors/actors: Cian & Méabh

Hello everyone and welcome to our Bookmonster special!
To celebrate reaching 100 subscribers, we thought we’d do something a little different as way of saying thank you. So the Bookmonsters put their heads together and came up with this comical ‘making of’. To round it off, we thought it would be fun to show you some of the bloopers we’ve made along the way. As you’ll see, there’s quite a bit more to making a book review than meets the eye! Enjoy the show!

World Book Day 2021

What we’re reading today

Hi everyone!
For World Book Day 2021 – today, on 4 March – we were asked to submit a clip to a television show as part of a reading initiative. However, it didn’t get aired in the end, as only a very limited number of clips could be broadcast. Not to worry, we had lots of laughs preparing it and it was a fun experience. For WBD, we are reading The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan and An Unsung Hero: Tom Crean – An Antarctic Survivor by Michael Smith. Our book reviews will be available here in the next week or so [now linked above]. Bye!
