I’m going to be starting The Wind Child this evening, so I’m counting it as what I’m reading!
I finished Circus Maximus Rivals on the Track which I really enjoyed. It really immersed me in this world and it was wonderful to follow Dido again. I will be posting my review shortly. I also finished listening to The Hatmakers which I absolutely loved. The concept of makers is brilliant and the ending (I’m so glad it finished in this way) makes me very keen to read The Mapmakers. This was exciting, fast-paced and humorous – definitely a recommended read. I also read Secrets of the Last Merfolk which is a great adventure with an important environmental message. Review coming very soon! Finally, a child in my class recommended Jelly and, as I want to try more contemporary, I thought I’d give it a go. This was a one-sitting read for me. I really enjoyed this one, and thought the messages around hiding your true self to ‘fit in’ were brilliantly, almost painfully, portrayed. A really fantastic read, probably more geared towards top end year 6 and into secondary school.
I’m going to listen to The Rollercoaster Boy next. Not sure what I’m going to pick up as a physical book yet.
Have you read any of these? What are you reading?
