After spending an obscene amount on books over Christmas, both real life books and e-book format, I’ve kinda decided to try and not buy excessive books as the impulse grabs me this year. It’s going to be BAD and possibly lead to withdrawal symptoms, crying and the occasional tantrum. For this I apologise profusely.
I had an amazing year of reading last year. And 2013 seems to be a great year for reading too – so many fantastic sounding titles are coming out to devour.
There are two that I am super keen about – and not just because they’ve been written by friends of mine either.
I know Mo through SCBWI and we are in the same crit group. We read MBFZG at inception and in instalments and it is genuinely laugh out funny and comedic. Mo is a great visual writer and I think she’s going to do pretty damn good with this as it ticks all the boxes for younger fiction. Or rather, fiction for people who aren’t scared to belly-laugh.
Mo’s book is out in March from Macmillan Kids so be sure to pre-order it. Also: zombie goldfish FTW!
