Toil & Trouble by Hannah Johnson

Toil & Trouble is a novella-length story featuring the same wacky group of characters from one of my all-time favourite reads Know Not Why (my review of which went up yesterday – only 6 years too late haha!)

The Twisted Tree by Rachel Burge

I admit, the very first thing that drew this book to me was the gloriously creepy cover. However, the synopsis also had me pretty much convinced too! Any book about Norse mythology is always going to catch my attention. The fact that it set in a modern setting is just icing on the cake! my review of the twisted tree The story is about a young girl called Martha who […]
