#SixforSunday: 2019 Books I want to read!

Half term reading!

This is my first time to take part in #SixforSunday hosted by A Little But a Lot.  This one grabbed my attention as my TBR is getting ridiculous due to the enormity of fantastic books being published, making it incredibly difficult to choose which book to read next. 

I have every intention of reading all the books I have bought, but I also know I will keep adding to it as more and more books I MUST read are being published! 

I have just finished reading The Umbrella Mouse by Anna Fargher which I absolutely adored and will be reviewing soon.  My next read is The Deathless Girls by Kiran Millwood Hargrave which I’ve been given through NetGalley.  This is one I want to savour!

I’ve chosen my #SixforSunday from my current TBR, which are sitting on my bookshelf, ready for me to read before putting them in my class library.  I intend to read these six over half term.

Here goes:

We Won an Island by Charlotte Lo:  I attended Charlotte’s Book launch in Waterstones, Reading yesterday.  She talked about her inspiration for the book and also did a reading.  I’m really looking forward to this one as I’ve heard such good reviews – and it sounds like the perfect summery read.  I’m also lucky enough to have Charlotte coming in to my school to work with my class, which I’m very excited about!

The Middler by Kirsty Applebaum:  I’ve had this one for a while:  again, I’ve read many great reviews, so am looking forward to reading, and reviewing it, myself.

Malamander by Thomas Taylor: I bought this one in Waterstones with the gorgeous edging.  I can’t wait to uncover the secret of the malamander! 

The Maker of Monsters by Lorraine Gregory:  I had just finished reading another book about monsters, The Monster Who Wasn’t, when I saw Lorraine Gregory doing a fantastic reading of her new book through Twitter.  She totally persuaded me to buy this one!

WildSpark by Vashti Hardy:  I absolutely loved Brightstorm, and couldn’t wait to get this one.  I just can’t believe it’s taken me so long to read it.  I’m so looking forward to visiting Medlock over half term.

The Lost Tide Warrors by Catherine Doyle:  The Storm Keeper’s Island was one of my favourite books of last year, so was very much looking forward to this one.  I ordered it from Scholastic and was really pleased they sent it out before the official publication date. 

Has anyone already read any of these?  I’d love to hear your thoughts on books from this list you have read, or which are on your TBR!

    1. I’m definitely looking forward to Malamander – the blurb really makes me want to read it! Think The Middler will also be great – don’t see too many dystopian books for middle grade!
