Welcome to Top 5 Wednesday! Hosted by Goodreads T5W group this week it is Books To Read When You Are Snowed In. I think that we have had our snow for the year. It is quite rare to snow here in South East England, UK so we were “lucky” to get what we did!
Welcome to Top 5 Wednesday! Hosted by Goodreads T5W group this week it is Books To Gift. This is a difficult one as I have read some great books that I think others should read, however, for this prompt I have decided to look at 5 different genres that I have read from this year and pick one that I have read from each of those. Hopefully there will be something for everyone to enjoy here!
Welcome to Top 5 Wednesday! Hosted by Goodreads T5W group this week it is Ongoing series I am still loving. This is a hard one for me as I don’t read many series. After having a hard think these are some series that I have started and am looking forward to what is coming next:
Welcome to Top 5 Wednesday! Hosted by Goodreads T5W group this week it is Young Reads. Not necessarily books that got you into reading, but ones that left an impression. I have to admit that I found this particularly difficult, however I have gone through my Goodreads app (that has most of my books on it including childhood books!) and have picked out books that I enjoyed as a youngster that I haven’t necessarily mentioned before:
“An utterly brilliant collection of the very best poems, from Puffin Books,
A celebratory anthology of the best of Puffin poetry publishing, including poems by Roger McGough, Michael Rosen, Charles Causley, Benjamin Zephaniah, Jackie Kay, Spike Milligan, John Agard, Brian Patten, Allan Ahlberg and Kit Wright. Each poet’s work is illustrated by a different artist such as Emma Chichester Clark, Fritz Wegner and Korky Paul.
Brian Patten came to public attention with the publication of THE MERSEY SOUND in 1967. He is a very popular performance poet, always in demand for conferences and school visits. Collections of his own poetry are published in Puffin and he is the editor of the PUFFIN BOOK OF TWENTIETH CENTURY VERSE. Brian lives in London.
This collection features poems and illustrations from:
Spike Milligan; Kit Wright; Michael Rosen; Charles Causley; Roger McGough; Benjamin Zephaniah; Brian Patten; Jackie Kay; John Agard; Allan Ahlberg; Emma Chichester Clark; Korky Paul; Alison Jay; Lydia Monks; Ali Chatterton; David Mostyn; Sue Williams; Sheila Moxley; Fritz Wegner”
I am not overly into poetry, but this book has some amazing poems in that I really enjoyed as a child. And I loved the illustrations! I highly recommend this book.
“Follow young Abby and Spike on their thrilling adventures through the fantastical world of THE WITCH TRADE. The evil Night Witches have invented a powerful new weapon and are threatening to take over the world — and only Abby and Spike can stop them! Joined by Captain Starlight (aka the Ancient Mariner), Abby and Spike must travel through perlious seas and wild lands to reach the dark lair of the Night Witches. Can their ragtag bunch defeat the evil Night Witch forces before it’s too late?”
I was quite into fantasy when I was younger and this cover caught my eye!
Welcome to Top 5 Wednesday! Hosted by Goodreads T5W group this week it is Award Winning Books. This is quite a hard one for me as I just read what I like and don’t know if they have won any awards. I have therefore had to do quite a bit of research!
Lily – she has been encouraged to come back to her childhood home in an attempt to “win” it from her other relatives. All sorts of secrets start to come out and there are murders along the way – very stressful!
Welcome to Top 5 Wednesday! Hosted by Goodreads T5W group this week it is characters that I would like to dress up as. I normally just dress up as a non descript witch at Halloween so it was fun to go back through my recent reads and choose some characters to dress up as!
