I’m currently reading The Strangeworlds Travel Agency by L D Lapinski (publication April 2020). This is SO, SO good! I love portal magic and, the more I learn about the magical system in this book, the more I love it. The characters are brilliantly written and incredibly engaging and the world-building is wonderful – so clever!
Normally, I NEVER read more than one book at a time. BUT I made a bookish resolution to try to listen to audiobooks which I’ve never really got on with! I think I’ve worked out my problem – and found a solution! I used to listen to audiobooks in bed when I was tired, so I’d always drift off and miss loads. I’m now listening in the car going to and from work, and in class as I get organised in the morning – works perfectly for me! I’m currently listening to The Boy Who Fooled the World (on BorrowBox, a free library service), and it is utterly brilliant.
I read four books this week. Charlotte’s Web is such a wonderful story which did make me cry, and smile and take me back to my childhood – this is one I think I will read to my class this year. The Snowman by Michael Morpurgo is a beautifully magical and heartfelt story which I really enjoyed. Letters from the Lighthouse is truly brilliant. I read it in one sitting as I really couldn’t bear to stop reading. I really enjoyed Milton the Mighty which was a really fun story with an important message.
I was lucky enough to be sent both of these for review. I read Brightstorm at the start of 2019 and absolutely loved it, but I haven’t written a review as that was before I started my blog and knew of the existence of Goodreads! I will be using Brightstorm with my Year 4 class as an English unit, so this is perfect timing! I’m so excited to also have DarkWhispers to read immediately after (published February 2020).
