I’m currently listening to The Ghost’s Child by Sonya Hartnett on Borrowbox. I am loving this story about 75-year-old Matilda who is visited by a boy. She then begins to tell him the story of her life. I think this one is going to bring tears! I’m just about to start The Griffin Gate by Vashti Hardy. I’ve loved her books for slightly older readers, so am really looking forward to this one which is published by the wonderful Barrington Stoke.
I have finished listening to Bloom which I absolutely loved. It is such a quirky story with a good deal of humour and warmth. I loved the environmental message. I’ve also read The International Yeti Collective Shadowspring and Skeleton Keys The Legend of Gap-Tooth Jack, and have managed to post my reviews! I also read The Children of Swallow Fell which was not at all what I was expecting, but I really enjoyed it. The writing is so wonderful and also swept me into its magic. I loved the theme of re-generation and nature.
I have just bought a LOT of books as I wanted to support as many of the authors as I could who are releasing books on 1st October, so I have a lot of choice this month. I’ve decided on Molly Thompson and the Crypt of the Blue Moon as I loved the first book in this series so much.
Have you read any of these? What are you reading?
