The November theme for Six for Sunday, hosted by A Little But a Lot, is Winter Books and today’s wish is for: I wanna snuggle with. I have quite a lot of winter-themed books on my TBR that I’ve been saving for December, and they are all definitely books I want to snuggle with as the weather gets colder.
I got Nevertell for my birthday, and can’t wait to start it. I run an Authorfy writing club in school, and this is one of the books the children have been using as inspiration for their own writing. I read them the first chapter – they were completely entranced, as was I. It is set in a Russian wilderness where two children escape from a prison camp, chased by a sorceress and a pack of shadow wolves … sounds just perfect!
I also got The Tzar’s Curious Runaways for my birthday. This is another story set in Russia. Katinka and her friends are part of Peter the Great’s Circus of Curiosities. But, when he dies, they must escape the Winter Palace and run for their lives … this sounds like an amazing and magical adventure.
I’ve had Shadows of Winterspell since its publication, and am so looking forward to reading it as I’ve loved Amy’s other books: A Girl Called Owl and Snowglobe. The cover tells me this will be a magical winter read … can’t wait to snuggle up with it.
North Child was another birthday treat! Part of the blurb just makes me know I will love this: A beautiful, epic story of destiny, magic and love, North Child will take you on an unforgettable adventure. I am so looking forward to going on Rose’s dangerous journey to reveal her destiny …
I read The Polar Bear Explorers’ Club as my friendship prompt for Believathon. I loved it so much that I just had to get the next two books. I can’t wait to continue Stella’s adventures with her friends.
