My Easter kid-lit feast

I’ve decided that in the run-up to Easter, I shall concentrate on children’s literature and ya (young adult) novels. Like many readers, and notably dovegreyreader’s recent theme of revisiting her inner child, I get an awful lot out of reading proper children’s novels, the best of which are the equal of any adult book. However rather than re-read books I already know and loved as a kid, I intend to read novels that are new to me.

Amongst those on this new TBR sub-pile are: The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner which is set during the French revolution, and Numbers by Rachel Ward – a contemporary novel about a girl who can see the date that people will die. However I’m starting off with The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke which is set in Venice (one of my favourite reading themes).

I’m looking forward to reading them very much …

  1. I love good kid’s/ YA lit! I see you’re reading The Thief Lord, which I haven’t read — I’ll recommend The Thief, by Megan Whalen Turner. Excellent book. I look forward to your reviews.
