Book #17 “The Graveyard Book” by Neil Gaiman. A story of a boy who escapes when his family is murdered, and ends up under the protection of ghosts in a graveyard. Plenty of twists in the plot and some humour. An enjoyable read.
Book #18 “That Night” by Gillian McAllister. A story of a murder and the involvement of tree adult siblings. I found it a bit slow going at the start, with two timelines, and the story told from four perspectives, but it then turned in to a page turner.
Books 19-21 While we were on holiday we listened to 3 audio books with the elder grand children.
“The boy with wings” by Lenny Henry. An ordinary boy living his life, with his foster parents and a small group of friends. Discovers he is in fact an alien, with special powers and he needs to save the earth. An exciting book.
“The legend of Kevin” by Philip Reeve and Sarah Mcintyre. This story is about a Roly poly flying pony called Kevin, and his adventures with a boy Max. A lovely story.
“Loki: a bad god’s guide to being good” by Louie Stockwell. Loki is banished to Earth to live as an 11 year old school boy. The story is so funny all the car was laughing. Great writing.
Book #22 “Insomnia” by Sarah Pinborough. This was from the Sunday Times best seller list. A thriller about a successful woman with a troubled past, her insomnia, and apparently going mad. There was a car crash at the start, but not mentioned again by the point I gave up. I just wasn’t enjoying reading it and felt the plot was getting more complex.
Book #23 “Devastation” by Sapphire Lebesque. Another young person’s fiction, this time aimed at a slightly older audience, part of a longer series. In this book we are introduced to the characters, and their unsuccessful bid to save a forest, it finishes leaving the reader wondering what happens next.
