Death in the Spotlight: A Murder Most Unladylike Mystery
Author: Robin Stevens
This was very different to the stories I normally read. I read a lot of fantasy adventures but this was the first mystery book I've ever read that involved murders. I really enjoyed it. I liked the style it was written in - first person, some like diary entries, some bits in handwriting rather than type. Towards the middle of the story, I thought I knew who the murderer was, but it turned out I was wrong! I found the story a bit slow at the beginning, but once I'd got into it, it was a real page turner. I definitely want to read the other books in this series.

The Train to Impossible Places
Author: P. G. Bell Illustrator: Flavia Sorrentino
I love the main character in this story because she is daring and even though she doesn't really understand the world she's in, she does her best to save it. Because there are lots of exciting and unexpected twists, it's a challenge to keep track of who's good and who's bad, which I liked. I also loved how at the end it gives you tips for writing letters!

Witchworld
Author: Emma Fischel Illustrator: Chris Riddell
I really liked how this was set in the future so rather than your typical witches, these were futuristic witches. I loved the twist of what had happened to Flo's dad. It is a real page-turner. I just wanted to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next.

You Ain't Seen Nothing Yeti!
Author: Steven Butler Illustrator: Steven Lenton
This is an amazing adventure story. I think you'd enjoy this book even without reading the first in the series, but I'd recommend reading them in order so that you get the most out of the characters and the stories. In this book, Frankie Banister yet again has to save the hotel, but this time his awesome yeti friends are here to help. On their rib-tickling adventure you just think they've cracked it when another obstacle pops up. Maudlin Maloney was my favourite character because there is more to her than meets the eye!
