I’m currently listening to Queenslayer and am so glad that Reichus and Kellen are together again – one of my favourite partnerships ever (has to say that or Reichus might have had one of my eyes out!). This series is so full of action, politics and quick-wit, but its the characters I adore so much. I took a bit of a break from The Second Sight of Zachary Cloudsley not because I wasn’t enjoying it, but because I was too exhausted in the evening to read it, but I’ve started it again and I’m really enjoying it. In school, I’m reading alongside the children when they’re reading from their chosen books. I’ve chosen Journey Back to Freedom which tells the true story of Olaudah Equiano who was captured and enslaved at the age of 11, but became a member of the abolition movement. This is a powerful story which is heart-breaking, but also shows Olaudah’s resilience and determination to gain his freedom.
I finished Soulbinder which is the fourth book in the Spellslinger series. Kellen is hoping to find a cure for the shadowblack and finds himself at the Ebony Abbey where, instead of finding a cure, he finds others who are living with the shadowblack, but his people want to annihilate them. I don’t think I’ve ever met a character who has to endure so much, do so much that I should disagree with, but who I am completely invested in. I also read Hatty and the Battle of the Books which was a very quick read, and just gorgeous as it involved fighting to save the school library whilst healing broken friendships. Finally, I absolutely devoured Operation Nativity which is my favourite Jenny Pearson book. I absolutely LOVED this and will definitely be reading it to my class. I’m writing my review and hope to post it by the end of the week.
I loved Elsetime by Eve McDonnell and am hoping to read her second book, The Chestnut Roaster, next.
What are you reading? Have you read any of these?
One thought on “WWW Wednesday”
I’ve not read any of these but the Sebastien de Castell books are looking super interesting!
