Happy Halloween! I’ve got a review of an appropriately spooky book for you today – a collection of Weird short stories by female writers that, in my opinion, is a must for anyone who likes a good supernatural scare…

Review: The Unicorn Quest

This book was a total impulse buy for me. I was browsing in Mostly Books and didn’t really see anything that grabbed me in the YA or adult sections, so I made my way to their lovely kids’ section at the back, and picked this up more or less at random. I thought there was a chance it might be a bit twee (never having really had a horse/unicorn phase as a kid), but when I started reading it, I was really pleased to find that it’s a gorgeous portal to a magical world, in the best tradition of children’s fantasy.

Review: The Frog Princess Omnibus

I was browsing in The Last Bookshop in Oxford, which has an excellent 2 for £5 deal, when I spotted a cool looking purple book with a dragon on it. That turned out to be the third omnibus in the series, so of course, since I can’t start midway through a series, I had to search out the other two volumes on the internet when I got home! This first omnibus has The Frog Princess, Dragon’s Breath and Once Upon a Curse.

Review: Nevermoor – The Trials of Morrigan Crow

I’ve been seeing a lot about this book and how it’s the ‘next Harry Potter’ – apart from featuring 11 year olds introduced to magic, I don’t think they have much in common. However, this doesn’t stop Nevermoor from being an absolute delight of fun, darkness, magic and mystery!
