Title: The Land of Roar |Author: Jenny McLachlan |Series: Roar #1 |Publisher: Egmont UK |Genre: Middlegrade |304 pages I have to admit, what attracted my attention first was the cover.

The few artworks inside are absolutely lovely. Stella Starflake Pearl […]

This is one of the books I was made aware of by a fellow Bookstagrammer. It’s one of those things I like most about that community. Book recommendations, finding books I would otherwise never have had on my radar. “Del Toro Moon” is one of those books. Twelve year old Matt Del Toro is the […]
