Horrible Histories: Scotland by Terry Deary
I love Horrible Histories, if you haven’t noticed by now. This was my first non-fiction book about Scotland as whole and I really liked this one! It’s one of my favourite ones out of the series. I totally recommend this series, they are hilarious AND informative and I wish there were more books like these! Such a shame Terry Deary stopped writing books. I gave this book 4 stars on Goodreads and you can get your copy here.
Wundersmith: the Calling of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend
Hello yes, let me introduce to you my Favourite Book of the Year. Yes, a big claim, but oh my WORD you guys!!!!!!! This entire series is amazing and I want more!!! All I can do is scream about it, honestly. This entire series is amazing and I want you all to read it. As it’s the second book, I can’t tell a lot about it, but all I can tell you is that it’s better than the first one. And I didn’t even think it could be. I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads and you can get yours here.
the Mystery of the Ivory Charm by Carolyn Keene
Another month, another Nancy Drew! I liked this one, but it wasn’t anything special, just your typical Nancy Drew! If you don’t know about Nancy, it’s a serieus originally written in the 1930s about a 18 year old girl and she solves all kinds of mysteries. The series isn’t really good, but it’s enjoyable and that’s why I really like to read them! I rather read something bad that I enjoy than read something that’s highly praised and boring. This one is centered around Indian culture and that’s something you don’t see often! I gave it 3 stars on Goodreads and you can get yours here.
Winnie-the-Pooh: the Complete Collection of Stories and Poems by A.A. Milne
First of all: why did none of y’all tell me that Winnie-the-Pooh isn’t actually called Winnie-the-Pooh??????? I’m highly disappointed!!!! But the stories are absolutely adorable, the poems amazing and I can’t say anything bad about it! We all know of Winnie-the-Pooh so I can’t say a lot more than that really, but wow, if you haven’t read them yet, please do now! I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads and you can get this edition here.
Arsenic for Tea by Robin Stevens
Ok, so I read the first book in the series a fair while ago and I enjoyed it, but had my issues with it. I decided to give the second book a chance, and there was some improvement!! The series is about two best friends, Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong in 1930s England and they solve murders. It’s actually a really cute series and I binge read this one, but my issue with it is that we aren’t allowed to forget that Hazel isn’t skinny. She has to huff and puff and walk like an elephant all the time and it makes me so sad! Hazel is amazing and deserves better. She’s a precious little gem and I’m just so sad that she gets used like that. #Justice4Hazel basically. I love her. BUT the second book was a lot less like that than the first one so let’s hope that it’ll be gone by book 3! Because I got so annoyed by the way they described Hazel all the time, I took away a star on Goodreads. I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads and you can get your edition here.
I read 4 picture books this month but those aren’t really anything special to talk about, haha. So, all in all, I didn’t read a lot, but I did read some great books! What were your favourite books this month?
