“Murder Most Unladylike”, by Robin Stevens, is one of my favourite books to date, as it has many different views and little puzzles for you to solve here and there. It is based in the 1920s and 1930s, and follows 2 best friends as they discover their hated science teacher dead in the gym hall.
“Running on the Roof of the World” by Jess Butterworth
“Running on the Roof of the World” is a thrilling read. Follow Tash and Sam as they hurry to find Tash’s parents who have been taken by the soldiers. They journey across the Himalayan mountains to rescue them but will they reach them in time? And will the Dalai Lama help them?
I would thoroughly recommend this book to fans of adventure and mystery.

“Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” is written by J.K Rowling. I think it is full of amazing adjectives and great story plots. No part of the story was ever boring and I was always on the edge of my seat.
SPOILER ALERT BELOW – DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK!!!!!!!
The story is about a man who was blamed for murdering hundreds of people. It Is up to Harry and his friends to discover the truth and put things right…
I rate this book 5/5 because J.K Rowling’s ideas were original and creative. It didn’t need any illustrations because it was so descriptive. I really recommend this book to other readers and I wouldn’t change anything.
I hope this has inspired you to read this book too.
Thanks for reading my blog post and remember to keep reading!

This funny, sad and adventurous book by Rob Stevens takes you through Stanely Carrot’s life: will he ever find his real mother?…
At the start, I found it quite boring, but don’t worry, keep on reading, as it will be really exciting deeper into the book. This book is about an adopted boy called Stanley Harris, who has turned thirteen and has started to wonder about his birth mother and where he came from. One day he gets a birthday card from her, asking to meet up with him. Stanley really didn’t know what to do, so he hired another boy, who was totally the opposite of Stanley, to do it for him. He hoped it would just be a one off thing, meeting up and having some lunch, right?…
I rate this book 4/5 because Rob Stevens could have been a little more exciting at the start and added a bit more at the end. It was a great book and I recommend you to read it, too! Keep reading!…

Opal needed someone’s help and Robbie wanted to be friends right away, but Martha wasn’t sure. After she couldn’t trust any one any more, will she trust Opal ?…
The author, Maudie Smith, really painted a picture in my head of the setting and the characters. It was even easier with Tony Ross’ dazzling illustrations. It was even nicer to know that the author visited our school, Nottingham Girls High School. I recommend the book for ages 8-11.
I rate this book 5/5 because it is authentic, has description, amazing illustrations and is definitely hilarious. Thank you for reading my review and I hope I have inspired you to read this book. If you have read the book, please leave a comment below on how amazing you thought is was! Keep reading!
“Sky Wolves” is a fantastic book that leads six dogs and a boy on a journey and all of them did things they would of never dreamed of doing. As well as this, they all discover something about themselves and some even about those whom they love.
I would recommend this book to anyone between the ages of 9 and thirteen or those who enjoy the “Warrior Cat” series.
“The Jaguar Trials” is written by Ruth Eastham. I thought this was a fascinating book. When I first started reading it, I thought it was boring, as all the characters weren’t doing much because they were just on a boat, but when I read to the middle of the book and further on, I was totally engrossed. I had a great desire for the book and I kept reading it every day eagerly. I was stunned by how the author wrote the story, as Ruth Eastham described all the locations in the book and I was able to picture every event in my head.
I personally love suspense books and “The Jaguar Trials” is a suspense book, as it has got a lot of mysterious events. The story line is about Ben, the main character, searching for his father, with the help of Raphael and Yara, in their journey through the jungle. The three friends join up with Professor Erskine to search together for the lost City of Gold, as well as Ben’s father, but they discover that finding the truth can be dangerous!
I would rate this awesome book 5/5 because as you can all see, I couldn’t stop reading. I learnt that you should never give up in life, even if there are dangers lying around. I also learnt that friends should be trustworthy and stick together through good and bad times. I would recommend this book to anyone and I am hoping to read more of Ruth Eastham’s books.
Thank you all for reading my blog and I hope you enjoyed it.
Little Stars” is a fascinating book written by Jacqueline Wilson. It is part of a series which starts from “Hetty Feather” and explains the story of her life as she becomes famous at the music hall with her sister, Diamond. Diamond is a young, child acrobat and participates in their act called ‘The Little Stars’. Hetty encourages her to perform well, however sometimes Bertie, (Hetty’s sweetheart) is adored by Diamond. When they are banned from the music hall, they are forced to leave Bertie and their new friends. However, they join an acting company which inspires them to perform with more confidence.
Meanwhile, Bertie leaves the music hall to join Hetty and Diamond, not knowing what has happened. A dear friend from the last book comes to visit, although she has to bring bad news. Will they live a normal life after this? I would rate this book 10 out of 10 because of its tension and excitement during the book. I would recommend this to someone who has read all 4 books, because it will be easier to understand. The first book in the series is “Hetty Feather”, then “Diamond”, (a story from her point of view). And then “Sapphire Battersea”, Hetty’s real name. Second to last is “Emerald Star”, (Hetty’s show name). And then one of the best books, “Little Stars!”
