The October theme for Six for Sunday, hosted by A Little But a Lot, is Autumn Feels and today’s wish is for: Books you’d take on an Autumn walk. As an adult, I love going for walks in the crisp autumn air when the leaves are changing colour. I also love sitting down to a hot drink and a sweet treat afterwards!
When I was a child living in the heart of the countryside, I loved spotting woodland creatures on walks so, in homage to this, I’ve based my choices on middle-grade fantasy books with animals I would love to spot … although admittedly, some from a distance – and if I was visiting another country!
The Last Spell Breather by Julie Pike. I started this last night and am already engrossed in it. I intend to spend my afternoon finishing it.
I loved The Clockwork Crow and have the newly released The Velvet Fox on my TBR. I’m really looking forward to reading it.
I’ve been looking forward to this one for ages as I love Amy’s writing. Snowglobe and A Girl Called Out were both magical reads, and I have no doubt I’ll love this too. It’s not due to be released until 17th October, but I manged to get a sneaky copy yesterday from my local bookshop.
I read this at the start of the year, and absolutely adored this tale of a very brave rabbit who so rightly deserves his legendary status! I can’t believe I haven’t managed to read any of the next three in this series yet – but I do have them all in my bookcase!
This is another book I read at the start of this year, by one of my favourite authors. It also has one of the best opening lines I’ve ever read: Once upon a time, a hundred years ago, there was a dark and stormy girl.
I’ve completely and utterly fallen in love with Sophie’s two books, The House with Chicken Legs and The Girl Who Speaks Bear. Both are steeped in Slavic folklore, and have strong female protagonists whose discoveries as their story unfolds are incredible. Sophie’s writing style is just magical … completely immersing the reader in these wonderful tales.
