My reading has sloooowed down in recent months, but July was full of books that brought me joy no matter how long it took me to read them…
Toby and the Silver Blood Witches by Sally Doherty is a phenomenal debut by a lovely writer who I am privileged to call a friend. It’s got fantastic ME representation, a witch with the best dress ever (she can tear bits off of it and it looks as fabulous as always!), and an exciting story of good verses evil that will leave you wishing for more. Which is handy, as this is the first in a series. Great for children aged 8 to 12, and since this is my buddy’s book I’m going to leave the link to buy right here 😊
You’re The One That I Want is Simon James Green’s best yet. I will always pick up his books when I want a smile on my face and a story about authentic teens, and his latest story doesn’t disappoint. Think Pride and Prejudice with teenage boys and lots of theatrical antics. I recommend for any fans of fun YA – you’ll be grinning until the last page with this one.
As always, read them all and we can we chums, okay?
