Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt

I feel like Maggie Harcourt and I could be best friends as we love so many of the same things! The first book I read by her hand, Unconventional, was all about fan conventions (from which I've been to many in my day and while I haven't been in a whil ...more

I'm a huge fan of Rick Riordan's inventive novels taking traditional myths and legends and adapting them cleverly to contemporary stories for a MG/YA audience. He's covered Greek tales, Roman ones, Egyptian stories and even dabbled in Norse myths; al ...more

I devoured this wonderfully lush historical YA novel over the course of two very sunny Bank Holiday days and I couldn't have planned my reading escape more timely. The sizzling Cornwall summer perfectly fitted my own surroundings and it wasn't hard t ...more

Night of the Party is an eerily timely young adult novel set in a post-Brexit Britain led by a nationalist party who forces everyone who is not BB (British Born) to return to their country. Protagonist Zara was born in Romania but grew up in the UK a ...more

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Mark Twain
“The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.”

“[Public] libraries should be open to all—except the censor.

John F. Kennedy
“Too often we hold fast to the clichés of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
