This is unusual for me, but I’m reading three books at the minute. I’m about a third of the way through Another Twist in the Tale which I’m still enjoying. I really like Baggage Jones and am wondering if she will appear in the story again. Twill is definitely having a hard time, but I love her resilience. The darker side of Victorian society is really well depicted. I’ve read about half of Explorers on Witch Mountain which is such a fun, adventurous read with a brilliant bunch of characters. I adore the jungle fairies . I love the writing style – it flows brilliantly and makes it so easy to get caught up in the magic of the adventure. I’m listening to Here in the Real World which is a complete change of pace. I haven’t got too far into it yet, but am definitely liking Ware and am eager to find out more about Jolene.
I read this absolutely incredible book over the weekend; it left me a blubbering wreck! This is one of the best children’s books I’ve ever read – and that is saying something considering how many wonderful books I’ve read. I’m still reeling from it, and will one hundred percent be buying the paperback when it is released and reading it again. I’ve started my review, and am trying to gather coherent thoughts on just how fantastic this is, and why everyone should read it. I will never understand how some people think children’s books are only for children. This book has helped me deal with very personal issues much more than a lot of adult books I’ve read, or any amount of talking I’ve done. This one is something special!
I’m loving Witch Mountain so much that I’m going to read the next book in the series, Explorers on Black Ice Bridge and How to be a Hero next.
