Another week, another lot of fantastic book post I’ve been lucky enough to receive! I’ve also added in some I’ve been sent by friends, as well as some I’ve bought for myself (I really should put myself back on a book ban!).
500 Words: Black Lives Matter
A collection of stories from Chris Evans’ writing competition. This time, the theme was based around the Black Lives Matter movement; 100 of these stories, written by 5-13 year olds, have been collated into this book for you to read.
The Little War Cat – Hiba Noor Khan & Laura Chamberlin (Macmillan)
A tale inspired by Then Cat Man of Aleppo’ who works to help people and animals in Syria. A moving tale illustrated beautifully.
Guardians of Magic – Chris Riddell (Macmillan)
The paperback of the first book in Chris’ ‘Cloud Horse Chronicles’ has now been released. Filled with his instantly recognisable illustrations and an exciting tale of magic and mystery, it’s certainly one to look out for!
The Orphans of St Halibut’s – Sophie Wills (Macmillan)
How cute is the rice paper money that came with this book?! A group of orphans need to keep it quiet that they’re on their own! But things can quickly get out of hand…
A Clock of Stars – Francesca Gibbons
This came with a delightful package (to be revealed soon!) and sounds like an imaginative, exciting fantasy adventure.
Q – Christina Dalcher (HQ – Harper Collins)
This bit of book post didn’t come from a published£ I was sent this by Sophie and I can’t wait to read it after her review. Based at an elite school, everyone is tested for their Q and teachers focus on the gifted. I can tell this will be an interesting one…
The Thursday Murder Club – Richard Osman (Penguin)
Okay, this one I ordered myself! I am a fan of Richard Osman and have heard this book is brilliant. Apparently it’s already been sought after for a film!
And finally, a range of graphic novels I bought from Bookwagon! If you haven’t purchased anything from them before I highly recommend them. Not only do they deliver quickly, it’s such a personal service! They’ll recommend perfect books based on your request and as they always read what they sell, you know you’re getting the best advice!
Look out for reviews for these in the future…
