Bookmarked Blog
In January, we asked little Booklovers to tell us about their favourite books and series. We were so inspired by their writing, and what they shared about the way books have captured their imaginations and made them want to read more!
 
Let us tell you, that it was INCREDIBLY hard to choose our winners, as every single review was seriously AMAZING! However, winners there must be, and we guarantee you’ll be inspired to read these books after reading these reviews. 
 

Our talented winners are...

The Stolen Prince of Cloudburst by Jaclyn Moriarty

Talia, Age 7Talia, Age 7

I really recommend you read Jaclyn Moriarty's book The Stolen Prince of Cloudburst because her descriptive writing is absolutely fantastic and wonderful. The next reason is that, even without the pictures, I could still visualise all of the lines. For example, I could visualise Esther running outside in the rain and throwing her face in to the mud, crying non-stop. Or another is the huge tidal wave at the stolen prince of Cloudburst's party. I really recommend you read this book!

 

The Grandest Bookshop in the World by Amelia Mellor

Olivia, Age 14Olivia, Age 14

The Grandest Bookshop in the World is a colourful and fun read for all ages. My original thoughts on this book were that I was going to be too old for the magic and mischief, but this fantastic novel proves that you're never too old for imagination. The charming Melbourne setting was a welcome change, and beautifully written characters helped to keep the pages turning. A lovely read which I would recommend in a heartbeat!

 


Our wonderful runners-up

The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer

Charlotte, Age 8Charlotte, Age 8

I love this book so much. It has a lot of adventure and magic. It is really, really cool and the characters felt so real and touched my heart. I have read the whole series. The book takes fairytales and tells them in a whole new way. The book is amazing and I've told all my friends to read them. The books are going to be made into a movie soon too which is great. They take reading to a whole new magical level.

How to Bee by Bren MacDibble

Rose, Age 10Rose, Age 10

How to Bee by Bren Macdibble is my favourite book. It is about a young girl called Peony, living in the countryside with her Grandpa and little sister. This story is set in a future without bees. Two kids on this large farm are “bees” and pollinate the fruit and flowers. This book has a powerful message: Be courageous. Stand tall. Never give up. I’m amazed at how strong the characters’ personalities are. It’s almost like I know them.

Scarlet and Ivy by Sophie Cleverly

Jodie, Age 8Jodie, Age 8

Scarlet and Ivy series are such interesting stories! It has mysteries, betrayal, action and everything! It talks about Rookwood School and evil teachers and with every book, the mystery gets deeper and deeper. I really enjoyed this series because new people come in every book, evil teachers are defeated and some parts relate to real life! I strongly believe Sophie Cleverly has a way with words! Lots of people could learn so many words from these books such as reverently, imperceptibly and many more. I highly recommend this book to all ages because there is always something to enjoy.

Amari and the Night Brothers by B. B. Alston

Safiya, Age 10Safiya, Age 10

This is a supernatural fictional tale with juicy bits in it. The pages sucked me in – almost quite literally. I loved the parts that made my body stay on the edge of my comfy position, like where Amari shakily says, “Dispel” to ‘Moreau’ – not. The book was so deep and juicy that I reluctantly set it down to do other stuff I had to do but I legit finished it in a day! Amari is a fun and strong character. The book gets 10 stars from me because it is an awesome novel for 7 to 10 year olds.
