As you know, I posted yesterday about being ridiculously busy lately. But this is something I’ve been meaning to blog about since the beginning of March. At the start of the month, I went over to visit my brother. It was his birthday, and celebrations were to be had. One of the girls that lives near to him had read Suzy P and enjoyed it, so he asked if she could come and meet me. Of course! I said. And so Katie popped in to say hello, and bought her friend Sophie along, too.
It was lovely to meet them both, and we chatted about all sorts of things…but of course, mainly BOOKS. And I promised I’d recommend some books for them. Katie and Sophie are in year 7, and enjoyed Suzy P, but also liked historical fiction and books about horses. So here are some suggestions, and of course for anyone else who likes these sorts of stories…
- Cathy Cassidy
- Cathy Hopkins
- Carmen Reid’s St Jude’s series (about boarding school)
- Hilary McKay
For historical fiction, try:
For horsey stories, try:
Hope this helps. It was fantastic to meet you both!
