What are you currently reading?
I read this when it came out, so I already know I’ll enjoy it! I decided to read it again now that I’ve read the Murder Most Unladylike books before it and know the characters better.
The Deathless Girls by Kiran Millwood-Hargrave.
I’ve nearly finished this and I am LOVING it! Full review ASAP!
Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield (audiobook)
This us the Fiction Book of the Month at work, and I did really like the sound of it but knew I’d never fit it in as a physical book so I’m listening to it. I’m enjoying it a lot, though I’m not very far in.
What have you just finished reading?
I, Cosmo by Carlie Sorosiak
A firm ‘unrateable‘ – this wasn’t really my cup of tea, but there were a lot of positives and for younger readers/dog lovers more into their contemporary MG it’s brilliant. Cosmo is a sweet, funny narrator and the way the author uses him to narrate is a great way to approach the family issues in the book. One I’m happy to recommend despite not loving it personally.
Cream Buns and Crime by Robin Stevens (ebook)
This is a really gun addition to the series with shorter mysteries from The Detective Society and The Junior Pinkertons, as well as recipes, code breaking puzzles and information about real unsolved crimes and authors.
My favourite parts have to be Daisy being a ghost which absolutely cracked me up and the chapter written by Beanie and Kitty – I loved hearing more from them.
Circe by Madeleine Miller (audiobook)
I FINISHED IT!! This has taken me SO long, but I finished it last week. There was lots I enjoyed about it, but I seemed to wax and wane a bit with it – it woukd really grab me for a while, then I’d lose interest a bit, then something woukd get my attention again etc. I think I’d have done better if I’d been able to listen or read in longer spells though. Still, I’m taking a certain amount of satisfaction from finishing!
I loved the first Kevin book – The Legend of Kevin: a Roly-Poly Flying Pony – so I was very excited to get a copy of this one! Even more so when I saw Neville and Beyonce on the first page (guinea pigs with a penchant for adventure!).
Just as much fun as the first – review ASAP!
Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue by Paula Harrison and Jenny Lovlie
OK, not exactly my ‘thing’ but a good one to know about for young readers, especially fans of Isadora Moon who I think will love Kitty!
What will you read next?
I think Once Upon a River will take me a while (though hopefully not as long as Circe!) so I’m not sure yet.
I’ll be working my way through the Murder Most Unladylike series!
Something from my Sequel September stack! I’m not sure which yet though…
… *edit* I know exactly what. Look what came into work today (and it’s part of a series so it even counts!!)
I also picked these up
so I’ll be squeezing them in too!
Have you read any of these?
