  11. I am currently reading a very gothic thriller by Emma Carroll. It is called ‘Strange Star’ and is very intriguing. A villa named Diodati house is host to a story session, held by Lord Byron. The most terrifying horrors are whispered out there. The Lord describes a story… and it happens in real life! A poor, (literally) lifeless girl arrives on the doorstep, and she has a terror filled tale to tell. The question is, will everyone listen long enough to put it right?

She waits for her mum to get home from work and has a lot of questions. Her mum explained to her and told her that they are forced to leave their homes and refugees are the people she sees on the news sometimes. She tells her friends all the things her mum told her on the next day.

He travels the world in 80 days and meets many new characters on his way! I personally loved this book and it helped me alot with my vocabulary as there were SO many new words!

    1. Thanks for this, Ajuni – sorry I didn’t reply earlier! I love this book too and it made me read a lot more of his amazing work. I especially enjoyed ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth’, ’20 000 leagues under the sea’ and ‘From the Earth to the Moon’. He had an amazing way of writing adventure stories that were WAY ahead of this time! My FAVOURITE adventure story of all time is ‘The Odyssey’ by Homer! There are lots of different versions available!

  21. Name: Sherlock Holmes
    Author: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
    Age rating: 10+
    This book has been thrilling so far. I love this book so much. This book is about a man called Dr Watson who this story’s perspective is written so far. There is an amazing detective… Obviously the one and only Sherlock Holmes who is helping people solve their problems.
    If you want to order books there is a website called Door to Door books.

    1. Thanks, Ajuni!
      There are some VERY OLD ( like me) films about his detective work which I think are better than ‘modern versions’.
      Perhaps you can find some with the guidance of your family! Basil Rathbone – wonderful name- was Holmes.
      I’m so pleased you enjoy them and understanding them!

  22. Name: Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone.
    Author: J.K Rowling.
    Harry Potter is an orphan but when his parents die due to an evil dark wizard called Lord Voldemort, Harry Potter is the only one who defeated him. He is famous in the wizarding world but is stuck in the ‘normal people’ world until he gets a letter.
