Hello! This is the page where I will write my Book Reviews. They with all be linked to my GoodReads account where you can access all my reviews.

I’ve recently read The Whispers in the Walls by Sophie Cleverly, the second book in the Scarlet and Ivy series. Here is my book review

The Whispers in the Walls by Sophie Cleverly

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the series, after loving book one I couldn’t wait to read this one! There are six books in the Scarlet and Ivy series and I recommend reading them in order. Miss Fox has been locked up in prison so Mr Bartholomew, the old headmaster, has returned. Scarlet’s arch-enemy, Violet Adams, is back and there is a thief at Rookwood. The thefts are blamed on Scarlet even though she had nothing to do with it, so together with her twin Ivy and best friend Ariadne, Scarlet must track down the real thief in secret.

The plot line is mysterious and engaging, Mr Bartholomew’s punishments are harsh so if they get caught investigating, things won’t end well. I love how the chapters alternate between Scarlet and Ivy’s points of view giving you a clear sense of what each character is feeling and thinking.

This book is a great read and with secrets to uncover at Rookwood school, this is a mystery that must be solved with unexpected outcomes that lead to surprising discoveries.

Hello all!

Today I did a book review on ‘The Creakers by Tom Fletcher’

The Creakers by Tom Fletcher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was exciting because Lucy never gave up and had determination in what she was doing. There were lots of characters and they all were unique in their own way. Having lots of characters meant that they had many different skills.

I really enjoyed this book because the plot was thrilling and you never knew what would happen next. All throughout the book the choices the characters’ made were realistic, in a way that I could imagine choosing the same or a similar path.

Near the end, there was a big twist in the book which changed everything! This was sensational for me and made me choose this book as a five-star.

This book would be good for all ages to read but it does have a bit of mystery and fright though. Overall, this book was great to read and I would recommend it as a five-star book.

Hello everyone!

Today I have done another review, read below.

The Lost Twin by Sophie Cleverly

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was fun to read because the plot was an amazing mystery with realistic characters. The fact that she had to pretend to be her sister was very mysterious. At points I thought that I knew the next bit but it turned out to be something else entirely! I was so happy about the ending that I wanted to read the next one as soon as I could go back to the library.

The book had lots of characters, the author was so descriptive, I could visualise everything in my head clearly. The main character was so adventurous and she did a good job at pretending to be her sister. It was all so mysterious but as the book went on, things started to make sense.

There were clues to solve whilst being forced to live life as her sister. She had to find out what really happened to her sister and her ‘death’ working out who to trust, who to ignore and who could help her and I think she did a pretty good job on that.

All through the book, there was a new plot twist or puzzle to solve, like a never ending jigsaw. This is a five star book and I would recommend this book to those who love adventure but can brave a bit of mystery too.

I can’t wait to read the next book ‘Whispers in the walls’. I hope that it has a good plot just like this one.

Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book is about an orphan girl called Maia who went to live with her relatives (the Carters) right by the Amazon river. She hoped for a loving family but they are not at all what she expected. Mrs. Carter is scared of bugs and pests and she has a cupboard full of all kinds of bug repellent. The twins are self absorbed and they don’t care about Maia at all and plot to try and get rid of her. They are all afraid of the rainforest and pretend that they are sophisticated citizens in England.

Maia, on the other hand, finds the rainforest exciting and so do her new friends. This book tells the story of a girl who goes on a trip through the rainforest trying to save her friends whilst trying to keep it secret from the Carters.

It took a long time to get to the action part but I would recommend this book to people who are patient but are about 9-12 years old and of course adults can read it too. This book does have some scary-ish parts but every thing works out in the end. I would of liked there to be more action in it or more excitement though. Overall, I give it a 2/5.
