Welcome to the Tots100 Book Club


Tots100 Parent Blogger Book Club

I think everyone has a favourite book. You know, the sort of book you’ll read over and over, which seems to fit a certain part of your life perfectly – whether it inspired you to make a change, or just made you smile on a gloomy day.

The Tots100 Book Club is a place where we invite bloggers to share their favourite books with their readers and friends. Each month, we’ll be inviting 10 bloggers to tell us about their favourite books. We’ll ask them how the book made them feel and what it is that makes it so special to them. We’ll also invite all of our reviewers to suggest a blogging friend who they think should read the book – and, thanks to the generous support of Tesco Books, we’ll pop a copy in the post to them.

Each month, we’ll be publishing a round-up of all the Tots100 Book Club reviews here on the Tots100 site – so we’ll be able to build up dozens of reviews of bloggers’ favourite books. If you’re short of inspiration of what to read next, then the Tots100 Book Club will be a great place to start.

Our book reviewers this month include Cara from Freckles Family, Carol from Dance Without Sleeping, Jax from Live Otherwise, Susan from Susan K Mann and Clara from I Want my Mummy (formerly Boo and Me). Do pop over to see their reviews or check out the #Tots100Books hashtag on Twitter to identify review posts.

Thanks to everyone who has volunteered to take part so far – we’re really looking forward to seeing what you guys recommend for us in the coming months, and sharing some brilliant books with our members.

  1. I wish Tesco could find a way to launch this initiative in local libraries, so help fund them and keep them open with all these cuts everywhere! Their marketing budget alone would keep our local libraries open I’m sure! Plus it would give them an opportunity for community engagement at a grassroots level rather than just an attack on the amazon market share. – Just a thought.

    Love the idea of a book club on Tots (will it cover children’s books too?) – but I will be using my local bookshop/library if that’s OK?


    • Hi Emma,

      Thanks for commenting. If you’re keen to donate books to libraries, lots of local libraries have “friends of” groups that will sell second-hand books to raise funds for services and new books. I think it’s a great idea to support them in that way.

      I think there will always be an argument about whether it’s better to buy books or borrow them. Personally, I love to own books and have them at home on my shelves, to dip into whenever I fancy – but we do visit the library twice a week too, because Flea goes through so many books we’d be out of space very quickly if we bought them!

  2. I’d love to take part in this! My husband bought me a Kindle for Christmas so I’m completely back into reading mode.

    The only thing I miss about my commute into London is that I stopped reading at least 4 books a month. Back on track now thank goodness. I can happily get lost in a book for a few hours!

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
