I’ve just started listening to The Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – I think this is one I’ll enjoy. I’m still reading The Blackthorn Branch, but have not got as far as I thought I would as I picked up The Last Firefox on a whim, and have continued to read it as it is just the fun, easy read I need now.
I had a nightmare after watching Stranger Things so woke up at 4am and decided read Race to the Frozen North which tells the story of Matthew Henson which is a brilliant novella from Barrington Stoke. This is one I’m thinking about using with Year 6. I also read Small! which was a really fun read with plenty of humour. I will be posting my review shortly. I finished listening to Starboard which I absolutely loved – think this might now be my favourite Nicola Skinner book. I really loved the whole concept of the SS Great Britain taking Kirsten, a reality star who is no longer popular, on a journey to find truths about herself. I really enjoyed the interactions between Kirsten, the ship, the map and the mannequins. The ending was so wonderful – I was definitely choking up.
I was lucky enough to have been sent a proof copy of The Mermaid Call which sounds wonderful, so I’m hoping to pick it up next.
What are you reading? Have you read any of these?
