So many books to read. Here’s some I’ve heard good things about. I’m looking forward to reading and reviewing them. I’ll add to this list as I hear about new books.
Winter’s Child by Angela McAllister
Eddie and Dog by Alison Brown. Great fun.
Enormouse by Angie Morgan
The Bear in the Book by Kate Banks – I liked the descriptions of sumptuousness in a Books for Keeps review
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein – recommended by Donna L Martin
5 – 8s
Troll and Oliver by Adam Stower
Captain Cat by Inga Moore
8 – 10s
The Dragonsitter’s Castle by Josh Lacey. I didn’t quite read this one – but got close with The Dragonsitter’s Island.
Fortunately the Milk by Neil Gaiman – on the list because I’ve enjoyed so many of his other books – both children’s and adult’s. UPDATE – it’s only 2 January and courtesy of my local Library I’ve already had my first enjoyable read of the year.Short review here.
Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse by Chris Riddell (who also illustrated Fortunately the Milk). An enjoyable quick read.
Wormwood Gate by Katherine Farmar
The Future King: The Waking World by Tom Huddleston. I like the idea of an Arthurian story set in a post-apocalytic future.
Every day by David Levithan sounded interesting in the Books for Keeps book of the year list.
She is not invisible by Marcus Sedgwick – another one that gets listed as thought provoking in the Books for Keeps book of the year list. I can see why – I read one chapter and was so hooked that I read all the rest in one sitting.
Listening for Lucca by Suzanne LaFleur – on the list because I enjoyed Eight Keys so much.
How to be Invisible by Tim Lott
