Six for Sunday (Children’s books you’d love to jump into)

Hi everyone! This week I’m participating in Six for Sunday, a meme hosted by Steph at A Little But a Lot. This month, the focus is a celebration of kids’ books, and this week’s topic is: Children’s books you’d love to jump into

1) Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire. Okay so this isn’t exactly a kids book (it is about kids though!) but I would like to see what kind of world I’d end up in!

2) Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend. I haven’t read this series yet but it sound so cool and I’d love to hang out in what seems like a magical world.

3) You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson. If I was still at school I’d really want to be friends with Liz Lighty! She’s such an amazing protagonist.

4) The Magic Spell by Linda Chapman. Using this again. Who wouldn’t want a secret unicorn?

5) Honor Among Thieves by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre (RIP Rachel). Again, a Young Adult but I’d really want to live in a space whale!!!

6) Loveless by Alice Oseman. OK I am cheating again and going for a YA, but I wish I’d had friends like Georgia does when I was at university.

I threw in some YA as well as Middle Grade since I don’t read enough kids books!

Sorry I’ve been a bit absent from blogging this week, I have been applying for a new job and work has been a bit chaotic!

Hope everyone is doing well, feel free to share your posts below.

Six for Sunday (Children’s books that would make brilliant graphic novels)

Hi everyone! This week I’m participating in Six for Sunday, a meme hosted by Steph at A Little But a Lot. This month, the focus is a celebration of kids’ books, and this week’s topic is: children’s books that would make brilliant graphic novels!

1) I would love to see a graphic novel of When Life Gives You Mangoes by Kereen Getten. Just yes! It would look so pretty.

2) This Young Adult book is one of my faves of 2020. Legendborn by Tracy Deonn would look so incredible – I can imagine the art of the graphic novel already.

3) You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson is awesome, and I’d absolutely love to see it in graphic novel form (or a film / tv series, it’s literally made for that, please).

4) There’s Something About Sweetie is probably my favourite Sandhya Menon book to date and I’d love to see a graphic novel because Sweetie is one of my favourite characters! When Dimple Met Rishi got an Indian TV series too, so maybe we’ll see this on the screen someday.

5) Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman. This is a really important story that got it’s own TV series earlier this year. I think a graphic novel would be a really cool way to make it an accessible read for more people.

6) OK, so since Alice Oseman already has a graphic novel series called Heartstopper, I’d love to see her write and draw one for Radio Silence too. This is one of my fave YA novels and I’d love for more people to be reading it, whatever the format.

Love this prompt idea. I threw in some YA as well as Middle Grade since I don’t read enough kids books!

Six for Sunday (Books From Your Childhood)

Hi everyone! This week I’m participating in Six for Sunday, a meme hosted by Steph at A Little But a Lot. This month, the focus is a celebration of kids’ books, and this week’s topic is: books from your childhood.

1) Double Act by Jacqueline Wilson. I read so many books by this author as a child – I had a boxed set and everything. To be honest, looking back, the plots were actually quite dark!

2) Mates, Dates and Inflatable Bras by Cathy Hopkins. This was the series my Mum got me when she decided I was too old for Jacqueline Wilson. I really loved this series and read most of the books (not even in order, what a disaster!)

3) Room 13 by Robert Swindells. I remember reading this book at primary school in the advanced reading group. It was super creepy at the time and I was really excited to see what happened and disappointed that I couldn’t read ahead.

4) The Magic Spell by Linda Chapman. OK, so this series was actually my younger sister’s, but I used to sneak them away and read them without anyone knowing because I thought they were baby-ish and didn’t want anyone to know I loved them. I mean, it’s My Secret Unicorn, how cool is that?

5) Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman. We read an extract from Knife Edge in Year 8 at school and I went straight to the school library to find the series. Honestly one of the darkest series that I read at that age (12).

6) Book of Shadows by Cate Tiernan. This was another school library find, but they didn’t have all the books in the series so I didn’t ever get to finish! I remember enjoying this series quite a bit, and being angry I couldn’t read all the books.

I really enjoyed looking up these books – I had to ask my sister about the My Secret Unicorn series and had to google ‘Laura unicorn books’ only to discover the character’s name is Lauren.
