Middle Grade Mini-Reviews: Girl Power!
I’ve read a number of middle grade books recently with fabulously determined, powerful girls at the forefront, so I thought I’d scoop them up into one post for you as a kind of showcase of fun heroines! All of these books were sent to me free of charge, either as e-ARCs via NetGalley or as physical proofs, but as ever that doesn’t affect my opinions. There’s a wide range, from modern day thriller to historical fantasy, so hopefully something will catch your eye…
Blog Tour: Sister to a Star by Eloise Smith
Today I’m so happy to be helping kick off the blog tour for Sister to a Star, a new middle grade adventure full of Hollywood hijinks and sibling drama!

I just finished the book over the weekend and it’s absolutely delightful – but I’m not posting a review today! Instead I have something special to show you: a letter from author Eloise Smith to her unpublished self.

Middle Grade Mini-Reviews, Part One
I’ve read quite a few middle grade books recently that I don’t quite have a whole post’s worth of thoughts on, so here are some quick thoughts about each! I’ll split this post into two parts so that it doesn’t get too long, so look out for part two next week.
I was sent e-ARCs of all of these books via NetGalley, apart from Escape Room, which Nosy Crow sent me a physical proof of. As always though, all opinions are my own!Continue reading “Middle Grade Mini-Reviews, Part One”
Review: Loki – A Bad God’s Guide to Being Good by Louie Stowell
I love Louie Stowell’s funny, clever books, and while this is a very different style to Otherland and The Dragon in the Library, it’s no exception!Continue reading “Review: Loki – A Bad God’s Guide to Being Good by Louie Stowell”
