Hey there, the location of this next book is definitely a place to visit, especially if you’re sweltering in the New Zealand heat! This particular book is set in Newfoundland at the turn of the twentieth century and features a rather large and imposing figure of a dog. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!!

Hi all, this last week’s choice was an easy one for me as it was the first one I thought of when I came up with my theme. Although it starts off in modern day, our young protagonist ends up in the middle of a battlefield in World War One in Belgium. Yup, if you guessed this was a time-slip novel then you are right. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!! Continue reading “Valentine Joe by Rebecca Stevens”
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 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”
