Mrs Hardy's Reading Log
I'm still reading 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell. Unfortunately I haven't been reading in the evenings as much as I was as I've been so busy and very tired. The story is following the adventures of a group of children have crash landed in the Amazon rainforest and are having to work out how to survive; I think the characters are coping a lot better than I would in that situation!
I've finished 'The Light Jar' by Lisa Thompson (who wrote 'The Day I was Erased' and 'The Goldfish Boy'). This, like her other books, deals with some serious issues whilst creating believable characters. This had a nice mix of real life based story and a just a little bit of imagination!
I've flown through 'Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow' by Jessica Townsend, the sequel to 'Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow' (as much as my children would allow anyway). I would highly recommend to anyone who read and enjoyed the first book. It reminded me of Harry Potter as it is fantasy based and this book focuses on Morrigan going to a prestigious school for people with special gifts. However, there is plenty of drama, mystery and danger - much like the Harry Potter books.
I finished reading Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve on Sunday. There's a lot more death and destruction than I was expecting so I wouldn't recommend to the squeamish but if you like adventure and fantasy with heroic actions and horrific deaths all set hundreds of years in the future, read this book!
