The Weather Weaver

Thanks to NetGalley, the publishers and the author for a free e-arc in exchange for an honest review. Excuse the awful editing skills! ★★★★★ Even though this is aimed at children, I enjoyed it very much, probably because I'm used to reading children's books, working in a year 6 class myself. The characters are short… Continue reading The Weather Weaver

Going Green

I'd had a massive break between Empire of Storms and this one because I went down to Cornwall to see my family for 3 weeks (can't believe that was a month ago!) After the excitement of the last book I was… Continue reading Tower of Dawn review

The Language of Flowers

★★★★★ I’ve had The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh on my Kindle since a colleague at the first school I worked in (so about 7 years) recommended it to me. I think I’ve just been so distracted by fantasy and dystopian that I haven’t thought to read it until now. However, as I’m in… Continue reading The Language of Flowers
