I’m just started two books. The Blackthorn Branch is definitely intriguing. If a book mentions Fae/The Fair Folk, I’m always eager to read it. I loved this influence in The Clockwork Crow series, but I definitely get the feeling this one is for top end Primary and into secondary. I’ve also just started Kiki Kallira Conquers a Curse which I’m really enjoying, especially the interactions between the characters. I think this is going to be a quick read for me today.
I’ve finished When Women Were Dragons. It took me quite a while to get into this but, when I did, I really enjoyed it. I loved the relationship between Alex and Beatrice and I felt the book really took off when the two girls became the central part of the story. I also finished the audiobook of Show Us Who You Are which was fantastic. Cora is such a strong, honest character and her friendship with Adrien is just gorgeous. Chapter 13!! I also read The Consequence Girl which I couldn’t put down. This is another brilliant sci-fi adventure where Cora lives with her carer on a mountain in the world of Colony which has three main living areas remaining. Cora has an ability which the rulers of Colony want to control and, when her whereabouts is discovered, she goes on the run. This is a fast-paced, danger-filled adventure linked to changing the past and how its effects this ripples through time … I now definitely need to read Adam-2! I also felt like a return to Starfell so read Willow Moss and the Magic Thief which I absolutely adored. Starfell’s magic is being drained and it is in danger of dying. Willow is determined to get her magic back in order to stop Silas from harming Starfell further. She is joined on an action-packed adventure by her old friends which, of course, includes the adorable Oswin. I love the messages of being true to yourself, hope and friendship, and Willow is one of my favourite characters ever!
I’m hoping to read My Friend the Octopus next which I’m really looking forward to as I loved Darwin’s Dragons.
