I’m currently listening to Murder Most Unladylike on Borrowbox and, so far, I’m really enjoying it. I’ve started reading Small Spaces for Middle Grade Marvels book club which is just as spooky as I thought it would be. I’m also reading Dragon Mountain which is a really fun read so far. I think the dragons are going to be brilliant.
I’ve finished three books this week, mostly over the weekend. I read an e-book of Lark on Borrowbox as I’d heard so many great things about it, and it won the 2020 Carnegie Medal so I really wanted to try it. Brothers Nicky and Kenny, along with their dog, go on a trip across the moors and find themselves in a dangerous situation. I found this a really powerful and poignant read, one that definitely tears at the heartstrings. The relationship between the brothers is beautifully portrayed with their close bond shining through. I also finished listening to The Secret Garden on Borrowbox. It cements itself as one of my favourite ever classic children’s books. There is something so wonderfully cosy and comforting about going back to read childhood favourites. I visited The Rocketship Bookshop in Salisbury at the weekend and made a few purchases. One of them was Clifftoppers: The Fire Bay Adventure which I read when I came home. I had read the first one Clifftoppers: The Arrowhead Moor Adventure, and now need to get my hands on the third book in the series, The Thorn Island Adventure. I even managed to post a review on the day I read it – I think that’s a first for me!
I was lucky enough to be sent a proof copy of The Beast and the Bethany (which is gorgeous) for an upcoming Blog Tour, and am so looking forward to reading it as it sounds like a brilliantly fun read.
What are you reading? Have you read any of these?
