As a teen I was a big fan of Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls series, which is set in an elite boarding school that’s a front for a training academy for spies – they were a lot of fun! Since they were heavy on the teen drama, I was interested to see that she’d turned her hand to middle grade with her new book, The Winterborne Home for Vengeance and Valour.
One of my favourite middle grade reads last year was The Dragon in the Library, which was a brilliantly fun and funny book about wizards and dragons and libraries and friendship. Today I’m reviewing the just-as-awesome sequel, The Monster in the Lake!
A feisty, clever princess who breaks all the rules? Sign me up!
If you like your stories spooky, dark, and full of the power of love and self-belief, then you can’t let yourself miss The Bone Garden!
Looking for an adorable Christmas read for young children, full of warmth and kindness? Little Robin Red Vest is a gorgeous picture book that should hit the spot perfectly!
Swashbuckling swordswoman Cass is back in the sequel to The Company of Eight!
I’ve been eyeing The Company of Eight for a while, and with the sequel The Conspiracy of Magic just out, I leapt at the chance to catch up!
