Best of Summer 2013 Kid Lit Giveaway Hop

Best-of-Summer-2013-Kid-Lit-Giveaway-Hop-ButtonThanks to Youth Literature Reviews and Mother Daughter Book Reviews, here is another Kid Lit Giveaway Hop.  When you’ve entered my giveaway (see below) you can click on the badge to go to the linky list to find another blog participating in the Hop.

The Hop starts today,  26th August and ends on September 6th.


So here we are, right at the end of Summer 2013, and what have I read?  Quite a lot, as it happens, as although I spent July working on the next book in the series at Camp NaNoWriMo, I slipped in a few lazy days reading short books, as well as settling down with a couple of others on train journeys.

You can catch up with my reviews of:

Return to Cardamom

The Fallen Pharaoh


The Hobbit

The Time Travel Storm

Beau Geste (abridged for older children)

Shirley Link and the Safe Case

The Princess and the Goblin

The Shadow of Atlantis

Seed Savers: Treasure

Trapped in Gondwana

Which did I like best?  Too difficult to say!  I met old friends, new friends, second adventures of recently made good friends…  I think I’ll be reading more books from most of the authors.  What was your favourite read this summer?

    • Ah-ha! Another great recommendation. I’ve just read Flood and Fang by Marcus Sedgwick – review in a week or so.

  5. The best book that I read this summer was Down a Lost Road by J. Leigh Bralik. It was so good I immediately purchased the other two books in the series, Subverter and Prism. Technically it is a teen series but these are definitely some of the best books I have ever read.

    • I don’t think I’ve reread the early ones since the last one came out. I wonder how much difference it makes, knowing the end. I couldn’t wait for the next one in the series, and spent ages trying to work out what was going to happen. Got half of it wrong, of course!

  8. I am sorry but I don’t have a favorite read. I don’t have time to read. I try to win books for my friends so they can.

  9. Thanks for taking part in the Hop Jemima! Hope the giveaway is going well! 🙂 I’ll tweet about it! 🙂
