Here is what I am reading now, then and next!


girl in red coatThe Girl in the Red Coat by Kate Hamer is one of my book group choices for June. Here’s the blurb…

Carmel Wakeford becomes separated from her mother at a local children’s festival, and is found by a man who claims to be her estranged grandfather. He tells her that her mother has had an accident and that she is to live with him for now. As days become weeks with her new family, 8-year-old Carmel realises that this man believes she has a special gift…

While her mother desperately tries to find her, Carmel embarks on an extraordinary journey, one that will make her question who she is – and who she might become.

I am well over halfway through the book, which is very easy to read. The story is really interesting but I’m not quite sure where it’s going… I hope the end doesn’t disappoint!

Then…child who

I recently finished The Child Who by Simon Lelic. The book is about a 12-year-old boy who mirders his classmate, and the man who tries to find out the reasons for his actions.

I have been meaning to write a review but I can’t seem to decide whether I liked the book or not! I will try and get round to it later this week.


see demonsI think next on the list will be The Boy Who Could See Demons by Carolyn Jess-Cooke.

‘My name is Alex. I’m ten years old. I like onions on toast and I can balance on the back legs of my chair for fourteen minutes. I can also see demons. My best friend is one. He likes Mozart, table tennis and bread and butter pudding. My mum is sick. Ruen says he can help her. Only Ruen wants me to do something really bad. He wants me to kill someone.’

I think it sounds pretty interesting!
