I’m currently reading The Mermaid Call which feels like its going to be a wonderfully dark, atmospheric mystery.
I finished reading The Blackthorn Branch which I really enjoyed. Cassie’s family are dealing with grief and her older brother, Byron, gets tempted into the world of the Fair Folk. I loved the twist in this story and the link with nature. I also finished listening to A Pocketful of Stars. Safiya has a fight with her mother who then suffers a stroke and ends up in a coma. Whilst visiting her mother in hospital, she finds herself transported into another world where she meets a familiar face. This one brought tears. I’m definitely now keen to pick up A Flash of Fireflies. I also read the second book in the Lightfall series, Shadow of the Bird which was a wonderful return to Irpa and Bea and Cad’s quest to defeat Kest. The illustrations are stunning. I also read the gorgeous Autumn Moonbeam which was such a magical, fun and playful book.
I’m hoping to read Orla and the Wild Hunt next.
What are you reading? Have you read any of these?
