MG Takes on Thursday

This is my weekly meme celebrating amazing middle-grade books. I hope others will enjoy taking part in this too!

How to take part:

  • Post a picture of the front cover of a middle-grade book which you have read and would recommend to others with details of the author, illustrator and publisher.
  • Open the book to page 11 and share your favourite sentence. 
  • Write three words to describe the book.
  • Either share why you would recommend this book, or link to your review.

This week, I’m celebrating …

Favourite Sentence/s from Page 11:

He could feel an overwhelming urge bubbling up inside him, something that had been tugging at his spirit for as long as he could remember. It was the desire to sing.

This book in three words:

QUEST, LEVIATHANS, BELONGING 

I read Frostheart back in November 2019, and can still remember what an utterly spell-binding, epic adventure it was. I have the second book in the series, Frostheart: Escape from Aurora on my ever-increasing, and never dwindling, TBR and really, really want to get to it soon. On a side note, I am beginning to feel ever so slightly panicked at the number of books I REALLY want to read that I have on my TBR, and the number I keep seeing that are being published that I absolutely MUST add to my TBR!

Ash, who has been made an outcast from his home, along with his yeti guardian Tobu, join the crew of the Frostheart as they venture on a daring quest to find Ash’s parents, whilst they strive to avoid the terrors of the Leviathans who relentlessly pursue them on their perilous journey across the Snow Sea.

This is the most incredible epic quest which is overflowing with edge-of-your-seat danger, jaw-dropping discoveries, and heart-warming, humour-filled friendships.  The world-building is amazingly immersive from the description of the cold, isolated landscape of the Snow Sea to the places they visit such as Skybridge where the technologically-minded vulpis live in Shade’s Chasm which is an icy escape-route through the mountains to the Isobai Stronghold.  The Frostheart sleigh-ship is also wonderfully described and is like a character itself in the story.

I’d love if anyone who wants to give this meme a go would comment in the comments box and include a link to your post so I can visit, comment and find some great middle-grade recommendations. If you do create a post and are on Twitter, and would like to share your post, please use the hashtag  #MGTakesOnThursday so I can find it, read it and share it!
