As a school librarian, I like nothing more than pairing a child with a book that I know they will love. I have been known to overhear shoppers deliberating in Waterstones and have felt compelled to introduce myself, putting what I feel to be the perfect book under their noses; apologies if this was you!
With Christmas fast approaching and it being the perfect opportunity to curl up somewhere cosy with a book, I wanted to gather together some of my very favourite new titles to inspire you. I regularly review new and soon-to-be published books for Reading Zone, and all of the reviews can be accessed on their website which is a real treasure trove of ideas and inspiration. Enjoy!
Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend
I was bowled over by this wonderfully charming fantasy adventure.
The Huntress: Sky by Sarah Driver
If you have not yet discovered this fantastic new fantasy series, then you are in for a treat. Rich, powerful and thrilling, it is impossible to put down. (In fact, Mrs Stuckes almost made herself late for school as she couldn’t stop reading it!)
Eloise Undercover by Sarah Baker
A wonderful wartime adventure set in Nazi-occupied France; a real edge-of-your-seat read.
The Wizards of Once by Cressida Cowell
A captivating fantasy adventure from the author of the How to Train your Dragon series.
Piggy Handsome: Guinea Pig Destined for Stardom by Pip Jones
Charming and hilarious in equal measure and perfect for newly independent readers.
