The Night I Met Father Christmas
Author: Ben Miller Illustrator: Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini
I love this book! It has made me feel so Christmassy and happy.  It is based on the story of a Christmas Carol but with a magical twist.  I hope they make it into a film.

The story was really good and the illustrations were amazing.  I think that I will end up reading this book next Christmas and the year after and the year after that.

I think that all ages of children will love this book and grown ups too my mum loved it as much as me.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - The Original Screenplay
Author: J. K. Rowling
I absolutely love the Harry Potter world. The books and the movies even the Lego so I couldn't wait for this book to come out. I just wish it was written like the Harry Potter books not as a play. 

I liked reading this book and I won't give away any secrets bit some of it didn't make sense to me. I'm sure that when I see the movie I'll understand it all though. I really enjoyed getting to know more about Newt and finding out bits about what young Dumbledore was like. 

I read this book really quickly because it isn't that long and there aren't to many words on a page and I loved the illustrations at the beginning of each scene.

Mistletoe and Murder: A Murder Most Unladylike Mystery
Author: Robin Stevens
I've loved all of the series so far and this book was just as good as the first one. 

In Mistletoe and Murder itsc1935 and Hazel and Daisy are staying in Cambridge at an Aunties house when a few days before Christmas there is an accident or more likely a murder... 

The girls have to race to find the culprit, when there are so many suspects and they want to be the first to solve the mystery.

I found this book took me a few chapters to get into it but then it was impossible to put down, I just wanted to find out who did it. 

I recommend these books to anyone age 9 and above.

Eldest: Book Two
Author: Christopher Paolini
Eldest is the second book in the inheritance cycle and it comes after Eragon.  I love these books so much they are exiting, full of adventure and magical.

In this book Eragon the dragon rider and his dragon Saphira go to stay with the Elves so that they can learn everything they need to about magic.  Roran Eragons cousin has to save the people from the village that Eragon left behind.

The Curious Crime
Author: Julia Golding
I really enjoyed this book, it was different and odd but great fun.  I loved Ree's character and it made me thing how it must frustrating it would be live in a world/time where men and boys were allowed to do everything when girls were so restricted.

In this book Ree is joined by her friend Henri and Phil the dodo and they have to work together to solve some murders and prove that they are innocent.

I've enjoyed reading this book and will look for more from this author.
