The Girl Savage, Katherine Rundell

I think this is good book about excitement because the girl in the story runs away from the England boarding school she has got sent to after her farther died. Her step mum sent her to boarding school; she really did not fit in so she ran away. I would put 9 plus because there is bulling and she runs away from the school.

I really liked it, but it's just got too much like boring talk - I mean I would like to read on it's just that the scene's being described too much.

The story is adventurous because the boys are going to Scotland and the younger boy is feeding the men bread. The girl is wandering around the table and the men get suspicious and go under the table whilst one of them distracts and when it is all gone the men leave, not knowing they left the little boy. The men sneak in and take the boy with them back to the train station and leave to go to Scotland.

I think the 10000 Year Old Boy is really good. It ends the final chapter making me want to read more, and it's more my type of book so I'm definitely gonna read the other books because of how good this story is.

The Unexpected Find

The Unexpected Find, Toby Ibbotson

This book is amazing! I loved every page and I'm disappointed I'm finished! I loved the way the book unwittingly guides all the characters into finding each other through curiosity and despair. Exploring the personalities and relationships of each person is extremely intriguing, while throwing in some useful analogies of life, which really makes you stop and think. The use of poetry is also very powerful, almost beckoning me to find out what it means. In my opinion, this is one of my favourite books of all time even if my usual type of book would be a lot darker ;)

This book is about a young princess who doesn't want to be Queen. I love this book, because I like how Lily is a rebel, always wanting to do what she wants, not step in line behind everyone else. When Lily wants to start a fashion vlog she is told she can't. But, can she find another way to do it?
