Spelling Heart in Books
Hello everybody! I almost forgot to write this, because I’ve had a very busy and tiring few days, but here we are at the eleventh hour, with a new spelling out a word in books post. Onto the post!
H is for… Hazel Hill is Gonna Win This One– this is such a powerful and important, yet also engaging and funny, middle grade contemporary about sexual assault and using your voice to stand up for what’s right. SUCH a fab book!!
E is for… Ellie Pillai is Brown– this was a great YA contemporary, with music references that made my heart happy and a lovely romance.
A is for… a Kind of Spark – Elle McNicoll is one of my favourite authors, and her debut was the wonderful start of our love affair. I can’t wait for the TV adaptation this spring!
R is for… Rainbow Grey- I thought I’d have used this in a similar post before, but apparently not. I loved the first in this series about a world where people can control weather, and badly need to read the others in the trilogy.
T is for… the Three Dahlias- I love a murder mystery, as you likely know! This one about three actresses who have played the same iconic detective is incredibly fun, with excellent twists and a brilliant dénoument.
This word was suggested by… my boyfriend! Is this his first official blog mention? I think it might be. I thought this was a very cute choice. I’d link you to his social media, but he barely has any.
Thank you so much for reading! Do you have any words to suggest for this project? What are your thoughts on the books I’ve chosen? Do you know what your picks would be? I’d love to chat in the comments!
Blog Tour Review: Alex Neptune, Pirate Hunter by David Owen
Hello everybody! Today, I’m delighted to be sharing my review for the new book in the Alex Neptune series. Onto the post!
This book picks up a short while after the first, and things in Haven Bay have vastly improved since Alex and the Water Dragon worked together to clear the pollution that was killing off sea life, with many marine animals now swimming there and a return of tourists means the seaside town is no longer struggling so much.
Then, because of course we can’t have a sequel without a new inciting incident, the Bay is attacked by pirates searching for a Water Dragon egg. Alex, his friends Zoey and Anil and a menagerie of sea creatures set out on a treasure hunt in order to stop them from fulfilling their mission. This book is just as fun and full of laughter as the first, if not more, and I continued to love the friendship between Alex, Zoey and Anil. I’m a massive sucker for animal characters, so they’re also a huge plus for me here, particularly the clumsy seal referred to in the blurb, and I also loved the introduction of Meri.
This is such a fast paced, thrilling adventure with lots of twists and turns, and as with the last one, it was just a really good time to be honest. I was delighted to hear two more books had been commissioned last week, as I’d have been very sad to say goodbye to Alex and co after just one more adventure I’m the summer.
Thank you so much for reading! Have you read any Alex Neptune books, or do you plan to? What are some of your favourite books connected with the sea? I’d love to chat in the comments!!
