Hello all, today I wanted to share with you all what prompted me to write the theme for this month. It was actually not long after visiting the museum and seeing their ‘Gallipoli: a scale of war’ exhibit and celebrating the following Anzac day. Continue reading “My collection”
Hello all to this new month of November!
So, like I said in my introduction post, I will be featuring tween books on World War One this month. The book I have chosen for my first post is one of the most well-known children’s books describing the Great War and its impact on the people and animals who lived back then. If you enjoyed watching War Horse the movie and National Theatre production, then you will surely love the children’s book it was based on. Continue reading “War Horse by Michael Morpurgo”
Hello and welcome to November!!

Instead I will be featuring tween titles that centre on World War One or the ‘Great War,’ as it was called back then. Continue reading “We will remember this November”
Hi everyone, welcome to the last week of October!!
If you enjoyed the last four weeks of horror, then this last one will be a bit tamer. Today you will get a selection of the many ghost stories I have read so far.

Hi there, so today’s post will be about a classic ghost story, nothing too scary. It’s a lovely read about a young girl and her adventures with the friend she makes. Fans of school-ghost stories will enjoy this book. Continue reading “The girl who wasn’t there by Karen McCombie”
Hi everyone, I hope you all are enjoying this little journey through the dark and twisted side of tween fiction reads. If you liked the last two weeks’ posts then you might enjoy this week’s one. It’s not just about one story, this delightful book I found is a compilation of short stories, all set to the tune of horror. And truth be told, not for the faint of heart either!! Continue reading “The cabinet of curiosities: 36 tales brief and sinister by Stefan Bachmann”
Hi all, this week I have a slightly different book reviewed. It’s still in line with the theme of horror but is set in Victorian times, so has a bit of an historical flavour to it. I won’t be giving much away but I think the title speaks for itself. Continue reading “The Night Gardener by Jonathan Auxier”
