Indigo Donut- Patrice Lawrence

Indigo Donut

I absolutely love Patrice Lawrence’s writing. She’s so underrated.

Letters From The Lighthouse- Emma Carroll

Letters from the Lighthouse

Emma Carroll’s writing is simply beautiful to read. This book takes place in World War II. It’s an amazing piece of children’s literature.

Her Husband’s Lover- Julia Crouch

Her Husband's Lover

I love a thriller and Julia Crouch writes them well.

Good Me, Bad Me- Ali Land

Good Me, Bad Me

This book is so deeply disturbing.

History Is All You Left Me- Adam Silvera

History Is All You Left Me

I didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did, but I thought it was incredible.

George- Alex Gino


A touching, important read.

We Come Apart- Sarah Crossan and Brian Conaghan

We Come Apart

I have really enjoyed Sarah’s writing in the past and thought this was a fabulous read.

Letters To The Lost- Brigid Kemmerer

Letters to the Lost

This book touched me! I loved reading it.

Awful Auntie- David Walliams

Awful Auntie

David Walliams is a fantastic writer for children. There’s always something there for adults reading too which is very clever.

My Lady Jane- Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows and Brodi Ashton

My Lady Jane: The Not Entirely True Story

This book was just ridiculous and I loved that.

  1. I spy “My Lady Jane”!! That’s one I really wanted to read in 2017, but alas, I never did. Ah, well. That’s one 2018 is for right??

    “Letters to the Lost” is another I’m really interested in. In fact, I’m pretty sure that one is on my Top 10 Tuesday list for next week. 🙂

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Chrissi!

  2. I’m half way through Letters from the Lighthouse – Emma Carroll really is the queen of historical fiction for kids. I would have loved this so much when I was 10 (it’s pretty good at 49 too 🙂

  3. Looks like a great list! I think Letters from the Lighthouse looks really nice, and I love a good thriller so Her Husband’s Lover sounds fun…

  4. I LOVEEEE your list!! Indigo Donut has a killing cover and great title, LOL!! History is All You Left me is on my list too. Adam Silvera is one of the best authors I’ve ever read from.
    George is such an important book! I can’t wait to read My Lady Jane and all the books by David Walliams that I am missing! His books are SO funny. He reminds me of Roald Dahl sometimes. I’ve read Demon Dentist and Gangsta Granny. I just acquired Billionaire Boy and Bad Dad. Middle Grade is sometimes great too. I’m so happy it was on your list!!!

    Here’s my TTT:
