Monster Slayer - A Beowulf Tale

Now I'll admit, what first drew me to this book was the fact that it was illustrated by Chris Riddell.

However once I read the blurb I became even more intrigued/excited.

One dark night, the sound of music and singing wakes a terrible monster from his sleep in a foul swamp ...

Warrior after warrior comes to slay the monster but no one can outwit Grendel. Only the great hero Beowulf stands a chance, but even he is not prepared for the horror that lies in wait.

Monster Slayer - A Beowulf Tale is a great re-telling of an already fantastic tale.

Sequin and Stitch Book Review

Lucy Dockrill is here with her Barrington Stoke debut.

Sequin and Stitch is tale brilliantly sewn together (did you spot the pun?).

Sequin's mum is a talented seamstress and their little flat is overflowing with beautiful silks, fabrics, buttons and beads. It's a sparkly sanctuary, like a princess's wardrobe.

While mum works at her sewing machine late into the night, Sequin takes care of her baby brother, Stitch and dreams of a place in the spotlight for her brilliant mum. But when tragedy strikes, their shimmering world disintegrates and Sequin is forced to confront the biggest loss of all...

This is a tale of family and loss.

The story itself is narrated by Sequin - who at nine years old - comes across as quite the entertainer.

The Prized Girl Blog Tour

There are many things I really love about reading and one of those things is discovering new and exciting authors (of which there are oh so many).

One such author is Amy K. Green. Coming onto the scene with her debut suspense thriller The Prized Girl, which is definitely on track to set heads turning, I was excited to be chosen to take part in the blog tour.

I'd describe this a psychological, crime tale that will have you asking more than the usual who done it questions.
