Little Bits: Poetry Edition

A Poem for Every Night of the Year by Allie Esiri

I read this throughout the entirety of 2017 and I loved it; I didn’t necessarily read a poem every night, but I thoroughly enjoyed discovering new poets and reconnecting with much loved favourites. 121 more words

Wicked Like a Wildfire (Hibiscus Daughter, #1) by Lana Popović

This is a slow, sumptuous novel that focuses on ancient magic and overwhelming beauty in all its forms; it was not entirely what I expected, and the language could be somewhat flowery, but I really enjoyed it. 191 more words

The Little Red Wolf by Amelie Flechais

Received from NetGalley for review .

This is a somewhat dark but lovely reimagining of Little Red Riding Hood, but I suppose the darkness is fairly appropriate for a fairy tale. 343 more words

Nightmare Card by Catherine Johnson

I’m getting really pissed off with these so called ‘dyslexia friendly’ and ‘easy read’ books. I’m a teacher and I can see why they exist and why they are used, but I feel that they are actually an insult to dyslexic and/or reluctant readers; most of them are incredibly dull with barely any story line, and that is not how to engage someone to read. 239 more words
