What are you currently reading?
The Ingo Chronicles: Ingo by Helen Dunmore (Harper Collins)
Oh I’ve been waiting for Littlefae to pick the mermaid books!!! This is a contemporary Fantasy inspired by the Mermaid of Zennor legend.
What did you recently finish reading?
The Land Of Roar– Jenny MacLachlan & Ben Mantle
A wonderful tale that inspires the imagination to expand and recapture the childlike creativity to imagine whole worlds and populate it with dreams.
Red Moon Rising– Paula Harrison
The tale of a girl who has awoken into her faerie powers late, but just in time to help stop a terrible shadow Fae from trying to destroy her community.
You Won’t Believe this- Adam Baron
The follow up to the hit Boy Underwater, this had me in stitches of laughter at the tenderness and innocence of youth amongst the hard hitting gritty exploration of worrying about an elderly relative, refugee stories, the bullying of a teacher and underfunded schools.
Summer of No Regrets– Kate Mallinder
Love this book, and I’m VERY fussy about YA Contemporary. This is just a beautiful balance of struggles and triumphs, joy and bittersweet and a gorgeous tale of friendship and pushing against the boundaries of fear and self-restraint.
13 Treasures– Michelle Harrison
This is a classic for a reason and I cannot wait to get into the other books in this series of a girl with second sight tormented by the faeries who decides to find out just what is in the woods behind her grandmothers house- which may be a very bad idea.
Begone the Raggedy Witches – Celine Kiernan
Oh this is beautiful, a wonderful exploration of the quest and love in families and the temptation to wrap in cotton wool parents and caregivers can suffer- Mup finds she is the daughter of the heir to a magical kingdom her mother having been secreted away in the mundane world to ‘protect her’ all the while her kingdom fell to the rule of her mother. When the witches take Mup’s dad, the family cross over to take back what is there’s, but the question is whether they will want to go back.
Guardians of the Wild Unicorns– Lindsay Littleson
A great little story about 2 children from a deprived area of Glasgow on a residential trip to the Highlands who become wrapped up in a rescue of the last remaining blessing of unicorns.
Sinclair Mysteries: The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow- Katherine Woodfine
History + Mystery? Sold! This tale with s dash of Poirot meets Mr Selfridge but with a lot of female empowerment is a wonderful romp for me and I’m so excited to follow the adventures of these characters!!
What do you think you’ll read next?
Littlefae has decided that I shall read Deep Water by Little Hersey which will take me to 16 books out of 20 on my 20 Books Of Summer
Really hoping to get hold of a few books though including A Pocketful of Stars by Aisha Bushby 🤞🏻
