Strictly speaking, I’m not reading anything as I’ve just finished a physical book and an audio book today; however, I will be starting Crater Lake Evolution as a physical read this evening.
I finished reading Harklights this week. I liked the Hobs and the natural environment, but it didn’t grab me as much as I thought it would. I also read an e-book of The Girl with her Head in the Clouds which I absolutely loved. It is a short dyslexia-friendly book published by Barrington Stoke, and tells the story of Dolly Shepherd who was an aeronaut and, my goodness, what an amazing, inspirational story it is. I was completely blown away by her courage and resilience. This would be an amazing story to share with a class. I also finished listening to the audiobook of City of Ghosts which I really, really enjoyed. I’ve reserved Tunnel of Bones as I’m very keen to continue this series. I’ve just finished The Lightning Catcher this evening. I’m gathering my thoughts. I liked the premise and how it was written as journal entries as well as the emotional journey of the family who have had a lot to deal with. I will write my review this weekend. I also listened to the audiobook of The Unforgotten Coat which I had heard of years ago but hadn’t got round to reading. This is a short, but very powerful and beautifully written story. It is the story of two refugee brothers from Mongolia who move to Bootle in Liverpool where they appoint Julie, one of their classmates, as a ‘Good Guide’. She returns to the school years later, and tells their story.
I am going to listen to The Somerset Tsunami on Borrowbox next. I love Emma Carroll’s stories, so I’m really looking forward to this one. I was sent the gorgeous proof of Rainbow Grey and the Weather Magic and just know it’s going to be one I love – just got those vibes!
What are you reading? Have you read any of these?
