  1. Who let the gods out
    by Maz Evans
    I don’t want to spoil it because I feel like I will tell everything but all I’m saying it is a good book and all of you should read it.

    The book I am reading is famous five and I will recommend it to someone. It is by Edin Blyton. The Famous Five are a group of children who have the sort of adventures most kids dream about, in a world where ginger beer flows and ham rolls are a staple diet. Julian, Dick and Anne get together with their cousin George in the first adventure, Five On A Treasure Island.

    I will also recommend it to someone because I think it is a great book and I will also share it to people because I like adventurous books and the genre of Famous five is adventure.

  3. Long way home
    by Michael Morpurgo
    It’s very intense but I recommend it

  4. I have lately been reading the book ‘A SINGLE THREAD OF MOONLIGHT’ and I found it at Daunt Books, a book shop in London. I highly recommend it for people who enjoy a classic story with a slight change. Here is the blurb if you want to know more!

    Seven Years ago, Iris Grey ran away from home and disappeared into the foggy streets of London. Now she makes dresses for the richest ladies in the country, instead of being one herself.

    One day, cold-hearted, dazzling handsome Nicholas Wynter arrives at Iris’s door with a proposition of revenge. Can Iris emerge from the shadows and reclaim her rightful place in society?

    Or will love get into the way?

    In my opinion I like reading novels about romance and mystery and I also enjoy a bit of adventure too! I hope you all have a great day! 😀

  5. (Also the author is called Laura Wood, sorry for not including that the fist time! I was in a little hurry.)

    I have been reading Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
    When Oliver Twist asks the cruel taskmaster at the orphanage (Mr Bumble), for a second serving of gruel, he’s hired out as an apprentice. Escaping that dismal fate, young Oliver falls in with the street urchin known as the Artful Dodger and his criminal mentor, Fagin . When kind Mr. Brownlow takes Oliver in, Fagin’s evil henchman Bill Sikes plots to kidnap the boy. What will happen next? Will Oliver live to tell the tale?
    I would recommend this story who are interested in History, adventure and fiction because you also learn a bit about the era that Oliver lives in!
    Have a great day!!
