Hello everybody! It’s time for another installment in the spelling words with books series; today is the turn of flowers. Onto the post!
F is for… Fear Ground– I’m a massive wuss when it comes to horror, but the humour and heart Jennifer Killick brings to the genre numbs the terror enough for these to be faves. This one has villains with creepy clown masks!
L is for… the Lost Girl King– this was the most recent Cat Doyle middle grade, and it was such a good standalone fantasy story that taught me loads about Irish mythology. I’ve been loving seeing more of that, actually!
O is for… Operation Nativity – not the most seasonally appropriate recommendation, but this book is SO much fun. Who knew the Angel Gabriel was a full on COMEDIAN?!? Already so excited for Jenny Pearson’s next one.
W is for… the Wedding Season– Katy Birchall’s adult romcoms bring me SUCH joy. This one is about a woman who gets dumped on the day of her wedding, and the new love story she finds while she attends her friends’ weddings over the summer.
E is for… Every Gift a Curse– this was the final book in the phenomenal Gifts trilogy, which are utterly unique and deeply difficult to describe. I IMPLORE you to read them and agree with me, ASAP!!
R is for… Read with Pride– this was book 2 in Lucy Powrie’s fabulous Paper and Hearts Society series, and probably my favourite of the trilogy. It sees main character Olivia start an underground book club when her school library bans queer books, and it’s so joyful while also tackling many important topics.
S is for… the Stickleback Catchers- this is a wonderful book about family and friendship, with fabulous disability representation by a disabled author (my stick sister, in fact!) and a raven called Fig Archimedes who stole my whole heart. I hope to get round to writing my proper review soon!
This word was suggested by my friend Rachael, whose amazing blog you should absolutely check out!
Thank you so much for reading! Have you read any of these books, or are you planning to? What’s your favourite flower? I’d love to chat in the comments!
