Six for Sunday – 2019 faves

Six for Sunday is Steph at alittlebutalot‘s creation with a prompt each week to blog about.

Today’s prompt is:

Oh, so hard to narrow down to six! There were SO many great books last year!

After much deliberation, I’ve cheated and chosen six picture books and six MG.

Circle by Mac Barnett & Jon Klassen

Can Cat and Bird Be Friends? by Coll Muir

The Suitcase by Chris Naylor-Ballesteros

The Steves by Morag Hood

Beast Feast by Emma Yarlett

The signed copy of The Fate of Fausto by Oliver Jeffers that my friend had dedicated to me (especially as its signed to Bellis rather than Rachael!)

And for my MG six:

Rumblestar by Abi Elphinstone (cover art by Carrie May and Jenny Richards)

Where the River Runs Gold by Sita Brahmachari (cover art by Evan Hollingdale)

Wild Folk Rising by Sylvia Linsteadt, cover art by Sandra Dieckmann

The Girl Who Speaks Bearby Sophie Anderson, illustrated by Kathrin Honesta

North Child by Edith Pattou, cover art by

Top Marks For Murder by Robin Stevens (cover art by Nina Tara)

(OK I confess, that last one really represents the whole MMU series as I read them all last year – thank you, Amy for getting me reading them!)

Have you read any of these? Do we share any top picks? What were your 2019 favourites?

  1. Lots of agreement on this page other than the three I haven’t read yet but I know they will be awesome (cat & Bird, Oliver Jeffers and Wild Folk Rising) – you will laugh when you see my post (scheduled for 9ish) I refused to be limited to 6 and may have got carried away.

    • Haga, I’m glad you cheated too! I was sorely tempted to add more MG in, it was very hard to get it down to these!
      The Jeffers one isn’t one if my favourite books by him (though it’s still great of course!) but I was so excited that my friend had got it signed for me as he’s such a fave of mine! You’ll love Wild Folk Rising!

      • I definitely want to read Wild Folk Rising! And yes, I barely tried to knock my list down- the easiest part was just editing out the books that were not published in 2019!!

  2. I adored Rumblestar and am so looking forward to Jungledrop – Abi just announced cover reveal tomorrow- just a day too late for my post! 😀. I also loved Where the River Runs Gold and The Girl Who Speaks Bear – can’t wait for Sophie’s next one! I STILL need to read North Child!
