Best young reader picks by Miss L (aged 11)

Stuck for great Christmas book ideas for young book lovers? Worry no more and say hello to Miss L, the most delightful, voracious reader who just happens to be 11. AND she has started her own bath-bomb business too that supports wild life causes because, well, like I say, she’s pretty incredible (@bloom.seventh). 11! I don’t know about you, but 11 looked pretty different for me.

Anyhoo, after chatting with her about her best books of the year, I realised I would be a horrible blogger not to share her wisdom and her words with you all. Enjoy Readheads and start picking these gems up.

The Ickabog By J.K. Rowling

The Ickabog is full of adventure and surprising turns. The strange kingdoms and rivalries had me hooked the whole time. The characters had capturing personalities and always amazed me. This book is great for ages 8 and up. If your child likes fantasy and adventure stories then this is the book for them. 


Nell’s Festival Of Crisp Winter Glories By Glenda Millard

This book is a heart warming wonder. When a little boy called Perry Angel wants to see two of his favourite people dance together a whole story falls into place. The drama and the surprises and the loving moments hooked me onto the story’s plot. I recommend this book for ages 7 and up although older children may find it a little bit too easy to read. 

The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures Of Bronte Mettlestone By Jaclyn Moriarty 

Reading this was a treat. It was adventurous and exciting. I was always hooked, never bored and if you are looking for something with thrill, then this is it. The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures Of Bronte Mettlestone was not just one adventure but a whole lot more in one huge story. I suggest this book for ages 9 and up. 


Nevermoor By Jessica Townsend 

Nevermoor was a rollercoaster. Ups, downs, twists and turns. It goes from one world into the next. The detail and description was incredible and it was impossible to put the book down. I recommend this book for ages 9 and up.

And that is Miss L’s 2 cents worth.
